16x9 .75x Aspheric Wide Angle Converter for Sony PMW-EX1 & EX3
EX 0.75X Aspheric Wide Converter
16x9 Inc. introduces the EX 0.75 Aspheric Wide Converter - the first wide converter to bring the benefits of aspheric technology to DV and HDV cameras. The top-quality optical solution for getting wider angle images from Sony's popular new PMW-EX1 and EX3 camcorders, the EX 0.75X provides a 25% greater angle of view while maintaining full zoom capability.
The EX 0.75's innovative, advanced technical design employs a state-of-the-art aspheric lens element to more effectively reduce geometric distortion and chromatic aberrations and improve off-axis wide angle performance. Utilization of the aspheric lens surface allows the other elements of the converter to be smaller and lighter - without it, the spheric elements would have to be larger to achieve the same level of performance. This helps keep the unit's size and weight at a minimum, making it especially well suited for handheld work. The EX 0.75X contains a total of four multi-coated optical glass elements - including the asphere lens - that combine to yield clean and vivid, high definition images.
This lightweight, compact optical accessory attaches securely to the front of the EX1 and EX3 via a convenient bayonet mount. Installation and removal is quick and easy. For professional shading and light control, the Aspheric Wide Converter is fully compatible with the HU-104 Rubber Lens Shade. Attaching firmly to the front of the converter through a handy quick-lock mechanism, 16x9 Inc.'s rugged, broadcast-style shade is designed to hold a 105mm round filter. In addition, the EX 0.75X interfaces beautifully with popular mattebox and sunshade systems such as those from Chrosziel.
