Summary: I bought this lens to give me more options on my Sony DSC-W7. I really like it! It's easy to attach and easy to remove and makes a noticeable difference on my pictures. This whole set up is not for a professional photographer but more for a person who'd like to take some better than average photos. I've managed to take some shots (especially of flowers in my garden) that two of my friends (with degrees in photography) say would be great blown up into posters!
Summary: I bought this lens and the telefoto lens for my Sony W70 before going to Switzerland. Wow...the difference in pictures of the mountains made this purchase very much worth the money. I have only used it for pics outside, and the quality of the image is excellent. I have seen some complaints about shadowing, but haven't used this lens in a situation where I've needed the flash, so I can't comment on that.
Summary: The adapter wide lens provides an ok performance. The adapter with the lens causes pics to be dark. the lens doesn't provide much more than original lens. so, if you want a little more in your pictures and have great lighting, then the adapter may be ok for you. just don't have too high expectations.
Summary: Recently purchased this product to take X-Mas photos. Pro - All family members were able to fit in the picture. Con - A shadow is produced at the bottom of pic when the flash is used. This is because the lens protrudes into the flash area. Anyone else have this problem or solved this issue?
Summary: The Sony VCL-DH0730 30mm Wide Angle lens is a fine product as far as I can tell. It provides a much larger shot (as it claims) and I haven't yet noticed any of the distortion effects sometimes associated with wide angles lens. The only downside is the adapter I had to use on my camera (Sony DSC-W1) blocks the flash from a small portion of the bottom/center of the picture. (About 15% ?
Summary: I purchased this product while on a deployment in AZ, had it shipped to my Hotel, I had to leave before I could recieve my product so I had the Hotel staff return the product. This was in July I believe, and I have yet to see a refund... my first negative experience, while I know it was not directly Amazons fault, probably the shipping company or Comp USA's, but it was still my first negative experience....
