The Digital Series.55X Reversible Wide Angle Adapter is the first dual purpose lens accessory. When attached to the lens front in one direction, the.55X performs like Centurys other high-quality wide angle adapters-offering a significantly wider angle
of view with minimal distortion. Used with the Sony VX-1000, the.55X provides a horizontal viewing angle of 73? (93? measured diagonally).
When you want to go wow-em wide with a fisheye effect, simply remove the.55X optical element,
flip it around, and thread it on the other way: Voila! It becomes a fisheye adapter. Oriented this way, the.55X provides a wider angle of view with pronounced barrel distortion. When used as a fisheye adapter on the Sony DCR VX-1000, the 55X offers
a horizontal viewing angle of 92? and a diagonal viewing angle of 115?.
