PAG is the UK Distributor for the latest line of low-cost EXII lens converters, designed specifically for use with handheld HD camcorder lenses, by US company 16x9 Inc.
The EXII 0.7X Wide Converter is designed for compact HD camcorders with a lens thread 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 0.7X 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.
