VFGadgets.com to introduce Red Eye wide-angle lens adaptor at NAB

VFGadgets.com is to launch its Red Eye ‘non-zoom through’ wide-angle adapter, designed to work with a broad range of DV and professional Betacam lenses, at NAB booth C3950.
Developed by the Canadian cinematographer Rene Collins, this thin adaptor threads onto camera lenses equipped with an auto focus feature, macro or back focus adjustment. With the .7x aspheric Red Eye adapter, the angle of view on most camera lenses will be increased by 30%.
The Red Eye is as thin as a filter and weighs less than 3.5 oz. (100 grams). Bulk and weight have been reduced by using a durable, compact, high-index and high-clarity optical material, which substantially reduces the size and weight of the lens. Each lens comes with its own leather storage pouch.
All Red Eye wide-angle adapters feature a multi-layer anti-reflective coating to increase light transmission to near 100% for optimum image clarity, contrast and sharpness. In addition, hard coatings offer an extra degree of scratch resistance and improve water repellence.
The lens housing is anodised aluminium and uses standard thread mount sizes of 58mm, 72mm, 77mm or 82mm.
