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.

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 some cameras you can shoot a Circular Fish-Eye picture but not a Diagonal Fish-Eye image. Video camcorder may not achieve circular fisheye image. **DCR-CF187PRO


 
 
Upon mounting on the zoom lens, The DCR-CF187PRO/DCR-CF185PRO opens the field of view to the ultra wide angle, the diagonal fisheye angle and to the circular fisheye images. It's a completely new high definition lens made of the high index optical coated lens with a 4-group/6-element formula to obtain the maximum resolution power of 500 lines/mm at center (MTF30%), while it has low dispersion.

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.

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.

●** DCR-2025PRO/DCR-2020PRO may cause vignetting image( darkening one or more corner of the taken image )when used with this model.
●DCR-2025PRO/DCR-2020PRO was designed to use at most Telephoto position of  camera's zoom lens.
●Zooming towards wide angle side while the lens is attached may result in some degree of darkening at the corners of the frame(vignetting). Use at the maximum telephoto position of the zoom lens.
●The remote control function may not work properly when the DCR-2025PRO/DCR-2020PRO is attached. Use the LCD monitor screen for getting a precise picture framing, not through the optical view finder.
●Be careful in handling the camera with the lens attached, such as supporting or protecting the lens by your own hand.
