Summary: I tried this and had a horrible time with my HDR-CX150 focusing.. Video was consistently blurry.. I then ordered a Zeikos .45 Wide angle which is only $10 on Amazon.. the Zeikos is smaller, lighter, and had no video distortion even with zoom... so yeah um....
Summary: 90% of the time I have this lens on my camcorder and really love it. Had it for quite a few years and it has held up well. No complaints. I first got it to film from my ultralight but now I rarely take it off.
Summary: The instant I installed this wide angle lens on my CX110 Handycam I loved it. This is the lens the camera should come with if you do a lot of indoor shooting. I may leave this on all the time.
Summary: Love the wide angle lens. Most of the Sony Handycams have a fairly narrow field of view out of the box. Lens screws on easily and definitely increases your FOV. I am using this for paranormal research where many times you are in somewhat cramped quarters. Best price I have seen for this item. Amazon did an excellent job with shipping. Arrived timely and intact.
Summary: As a real estate agent, I am always looking for an edge over my competition and the opportunity to offer my clients more. Since 84% of buyers use the Internet to search for properties, photos can make or break the interest of consumers. So, I decided to purchase the Sony VCL-0630X wide lens for my Sony DVD405 camcorder (The camcorder is also a camera). It was a wise decision. It produced a wider shot of the rooms.
Summary: Loke the other reviewers I believe the picture this lens creates should have been standard on the camcorder. It makes taking movies much easier as you do not have to walk back 10 feet to take them.
