PAG Offers Wide-Angle Lens Converters From 16x9 Inc

News Image
The manufacturer of batteries, chargers and camera lighting systems, PAG, is also the UK distributor for 16x9 Inc.
The US company provides high-quality lens converters, designed specifically for use with high-definition handheld camcorders.
With the introduction of the new EXII range, 16x9 offers superior, HD-quality lens converters at a lower price. The current economic climate may be tough, but getting outstanding high-definition images doesn't have to be.
The EXII 0.7X Wide Converter is designed for compact HD camcorders with a lens tread of 46mm, 43mm or 37mm. It is therefore suitable for use with the new JVC GY-HM100E camcorder.
The professional optic attaches to the thread on the front of the camcorder lens and provides 30% more wide angle coverage. The lens retains its zoom capabilities without light loss or vignetting. The EXII O.7X employs three multi-coated optical glass elements to yield high-definition pictures, and weighs only 136g.
The EXII 0.8X Wide Converter was specifically designed for the high-end Fujinon 17X zoom lens that comes with the Panasonic HPX300 and JVC GY-HM700 HD cameras. However, 16x9 Inc is making the improved optics of the EXII 0.8X available for a variety of popular HDV camcorders, such as those from Canon (XF300/305), Panasonic and Sony.
The EXII 0.8X Wide Converter features a two-element design. The adaptor increases wide angle coverage by 20% with minimal barrel distortion and is fully zoom-through. The EXII 0.8X weighs 482g and is compatible with popular mattebox systems. In addition to 62, 72, 77 and 82mm threaded mounts, 16x9 Inc will offer multiple bayonet mounts.
16x9 Inc offers an optional lightweight rubber lens shade for both the 0.7X and 0.8X models.
