DCR-CF187PRO High Definition 185 Circular Fish-Eye Conversion Lens
 

Diagonal to Circular Fisheye image  

A fabulous 185-degree Circular Fisheye conversion lens was introduced from Raynox, called DCR-CF187PRO, DCR-CF185PRO Once again, Raynox filled the need of advanced image creators. Upon mounting on the zoom lens, it opens the field of view to the ultra wide angle, the diagonal fisheye angle and to the circular fisheye images. A very interesting feature of this particular lens makes it possible to change the scenery from an ultra wide angle view to a diagonal fisheye and to the circular fisheye or the other way, by zooming the lens.

DCR-CF187PRO comes with 4-adapter rings for 43mm/ 52mm/ 55mm/ 58mm filter sizes

DCR-CF185PRO comes with 2-adapter rings for 52mm/ and 58mm filter sizes

There is no difference in the quality of lens between DCR-CF187PRO and DCR-CF185PRO.

The Fish-Eye lens is a precision optical instrument, assembled with critical alignment tolerance. Do not subject it to severe shock and to the conditions of excessive cold, heat or humidity. Do not disassemble the lens.
See the focusing on the LCD monitor. Thru the optical finder, you cannot capture the whole broadened angle of view.
To achieve a Circular Fish-Eye image, the focal length of the camera's lens must be about 36mm or shorter (equivalent of 35mm film format). Otherwise, it may not make a complete Circular Fish-Eye image. There are cameras you can shoot a Circular Fish-Eye picture but not a Diagonal Fish-Eye image while the DCR-CF187PRO is attached.
The built-in remote control system of the camera may not function properly, when the Fish-Eye lens is attached. It is recommended to make a trial shooting before you use the remote control system.
Please remove the DCR-CF187PRO lens and holder from the camera after completing your shooting.
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-CF187PRO is attached.
The DCR-CF187PRO lens weighs 565g (1.24 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.

The above is simulated Circular Fisheye image and Diagonal 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.
● HDP-5072EX Semi-fisheye lens weighs 640g and it's rather bulky, and please support the lens by hand carefully in shooting, and dismount the lens after completing the shooting.
● The HDP-5072EX Semi-fisheye lens is designed with a priority purpose of widening the field of view in maintaining the superb high image quality when used at the wide angle range of a camera's zoom lens.
● There will be no influence on the original F number of the camera when HDP-5072EX Semi-fisheye lens is on. It remains the original F number of the camera lens.
● The focusing zoom range with the HDP-5072EX Semi-fisheye 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.
● With the HDP-5072EX 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 even with its manual focus mode.
● Although you may detect a white dot in the HDP-5072EX lens sometimes when looking into from the front, but it's not out of normal and would not affect any of image quality.
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.

DCR-5320PRO 3-in-1 High Definition Triple Macro Conversion Lens
  The DCR-5320PRO High Definition Macro Conversion lens is particularly designed to use with the high-end digital, film and hi-vision cameras, resulting in an amazing resolution power of 200L/mm at center (MTF 30%) with a low dispersion. With the Macro lens attached on the camera's lens, it makes possible to approach the object very close for macro shooting. The model consists of two independent lenses, one is with 2-diopter magnification and the other with 3-diopter. It also makes a 5-diopter lens by coupling the both lenses together. Taking advantage of using in three ways, you can shoot the object at the distances of either 50cm or 30cm or 17cm, depending upon the nature of a subject. All lens glass elements are fully coated for the optimum light transmittance and fine image quality.
The adapter rings which fit to the 52mm, 55mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 77mm, 82mm threads (except 72mm) are sold separately.










* MTF30%-theoretical number obtained.

 
The DCR-5320PRO Macro Close-up lens is made of two independent lenses of 2-diopter magnification and 3-diopter one, both fabricated in doublet formula for less color aberration at corners. By putting the two lenses together, it creates the high 5-diopter magnification macro close-up conversion lens with the excellent high resolution power of 200 lines/mm at center (MTF30%) at center.

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.
