The DCR-FE181PRO/DCR-FE180PRO full-frame (diagonal) fish-eye lens is designed to get a 180 degrees wide angle view suitable with as many as digital camera models available in the market, and it may create a slight ' vignetting ' at the corners of the picture captured with some camera model set at the widest position of the zoom lens.(Pic.1) If you do not like to have the ' vignetting ' effect during picture taking, zoom the camera lens slightly towards telephoto side. ' vignetting ' means that the four corners or a corner of the picture is cut off or darkened slightly.
Depending upon the model of camera you use, the ' vignetting ' effect will not appear at all even set at the widest range of the zoom lens. The following models are the ones as far as we know at the moment. SONY DSC-F717/F707, OLYMPUS C-755UZ, C-750UZ, C-745UZ, C-740UZ, C-730UZ, C-720UZ, C-700UZ.
However, the image obtained by the cameras which do not create the ' vignetting ' may produce the image less than 180 degrees field of view.
With Minolta DiMage A200, A2, A1, 7, 7i, Nikon CoolPix5000 models, the 180-degree field of view can be obtained either at diagonal or horizontal lines, set at the widest zoom range.
The borderline of whether the ' vignetting ' may happen or not lies in the area of 37mm focal length (equivalent o f 35mm film format) of the camera lens. When the camera lens is set at less than 37mm focal length, the ' vignetting ' effect will appear, in obtaining a full-frame 180-degree field of view.
There would be a possibility of viewing the ' vignetting ' on PC monitor screen, even though it did not appear on the camera's LCD monitor.
Do not use the built-in flash while the DCR-FE181PRO/DCR-FE180PRO is attached.
The DCR-FE181PRO/DCR-FE180PRO lens weighs 685g (1.5 lbs) and it's a rather heavy stuff and may limit the way of shooting condition. Be careful in handling the camera with the lens attached, such as supporting or protecting the lens by your own hand.
Screw-thread pitch size is 0.75mm unless specified.
The specifications and cosmetic designs may change without prior notice.


(Pic.1)
The above is simulated Vignetting image and Fisheye coverage.

Exposing the conversion lens to a warm atmosphere in an instant way from the cold area may create some dews on and inside the lens. When it happened inside the lens, keep the lens in a dry area till the dews disappear before using. Repeating such situation may leave dirt spot-(mildew) and affect the image.
All of Raynox conversion lenses are proudly made in Japan. At our wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary, every stage of production is rigorously checked and tested so that the lens elements compensate effectively for astigmatism, distortion and spherical aberration.... for an excellent image quality.
The lens is neither made for dust-free nor moisture/water-proof.

● The specifications and cosmetic designs may change without a prior notice.
For 37mm filter sized camera : A 52-37mm adapter ring is already mounted on the HDP-2800ES originally and you can mount the HDP-2800ES directly by screwing onto 37mm filter sized camera lens. For other than 37mm filter sized camera lens : Remove the 52-37mm adapter ring from the HDP-2800ES by unscrewing and then replace it with the appropriate thread sized adapter ring. Then you can mount the HDP-2800ES onto the front filter threads of the camera lens by screwing.
● The HDP-2800ES lens is a precision optical instrument, assembled with critical alignment tolerances. Do not subject it to severe shock and to the conditions of excessive cold, heat or humidity.
● Do not use the built-in flash when the HDP-2800ES lens is attached on. If you do, the shadow of the lens may show on the picture.
● To avoid any damages on the front lens of the camera in use with the HDP-2800ES lens, please make sure the adapter ring is to be mounted on first. It can not be mounted direct on the 52mm filter sized camera lens. Please mount our original adapter ring RA5252B or RA5252 sold separately if need to use HDP-2800ES lens onto 52mm filter sized camera lens.
● There may be some chances of malfunction of the remote control system when operated while the HDP-2800ES lens is on. So, it's recommended to make a rehearsal shooting, before using the remote control system.
● Please treat and protect carefully in shooting the camera with the HDP-2800ES lens on. Please remove the HDP-2800ES lens from the camera whenever a shooting is over, and do not carry around the camera with the lens on. It may cause damages or spoil the lens and the camera as well.
● With the HDP-2800ES lens on, usually do focus the camera under Auto Focus mode. In using the replaced interchangeable lens or in operating under the Special Scene mode, there may be possibility of not focusing precisely.
● For resolving the matter of vignetting (darkened or cutting off the image corners) on the still image obtained with the HDP-2800ES lens on, while maintaining the max. diagonal fish-eye effect, it's recommended to use an image treatment software and make an appropriate trimming.
See the example photos.
● Although you may detect a white dot in the HDP-2800ES lens sometimes when looking into from the front, but it's not out of normal and would not affect any of image quality.
● The focusing zoom range with the HDP-2800ES lens on will vary depending on the model of High Definition camera in use, and generally speaking the focusing zoom range is from the end of wide angle point up to mid zoom area. No focusing at the telephoto zoom range.
● When mounting the HDP-2800ES lens onto the High Definition camera, we recommend set the camera vertically and do it very carefully.
Exposing the conversion lens to a warm atmosphere in an instant way from the cold area may create some dews on and inside the lens. When it happened inside the lens, keep the lens in a dry area till the dews disappear before using. Repeating such situation may leave dirt spot-(mildew) and affect the image.
All of Raynox conversion lenses are proudly made in Japan. At our wholly owned manufacturing subsidiary, every stage of production is rigorously checked and tested so that the lens elements compensate effectively for astigmatism, distortion and spherical aberration.... for an excellent image quality.
The lens is neither made for dust-free nor moisture/water-proof.
* The 5x zoom compatibility mentioned above is based on the actual test data made with the under 10x zoom HD camcorder, and depending upon the model of camera lens you use, effective zooming may become less than 5x. For finding the suitable camera models please visit our Raynox Home Page and see the Cross Reference Table.

It is recommended to use the 2-diopter and 3-diopter lenses with the camera lens set at longer than 50mm FL (35mm film equiv.), and 100mm FL with the 5-diopter lens.. There may be a possibility of vignetting (darkened corners) happens when the FL (focal length) used is set at shorter than the above mentioned.
The all figures and numbers of the lenses mentioned in this explanation were the ones obtained when the focusing distance of taking lens was set at infinity. Usually, when the focusing distance is set at nearer than the infinity, the focusing could be done at the nearer point than the described in this explanation.
While the Macro lens is attached on, do not use the built-in flash. If you do, there would be a shadow of the lens barrel shown in the picture taken.
There might be a possibility of not functioning of a remote control when the Macro lens is attached. Please try a rehearsal shot first before using it.
Please detach the Macro lens and holder before carrying the camera around after completing the shooting.
The slight vignetting (darkened corners) could be shown on the taken picture, though it did not appear on the LCD monitor or viewfinder.
Knowing the rather heavy weight (395g) of the Macro lens, be careful in holding the lens and camera firm for shooting.
When using with an interchangeable lens of 35mm digital SLR camera, make focusing manually, except with the one made of an Inner Focusing system.
Screw-thread pitch size is 0.75mm unless specified.
The cosmetic design and optical specifications are subject to change without a prior notice.
