HDP-7700ES Telephoto 3.0x

HDP-7700ES High Definition
Super-Telephoto conversion Lens 3.0x
Finally, we are able to introduce an ultimate telephoto lens of 3.0 times high powered yet constructed in compact measurements of 92mm length (without Lens Shade) x 58mm outside diameter (at the largest). Thanks to the State-of-the-art lens designing formula developed here in Tokyo Lab, the new 3-group/5-element construction of high index optical glasses reached up to a high image standard of 220 lines/mm resolution power at center (MTF30%) with three times high powered telephoto magnification. It never reached before.

The Lens Shade and 5-adapter rings come with the lens as a standard accessory.

With the HDP-7700ES lens attached, there will be no influence on F number of the master lens.

The lens has a mounting thread of 37mm.


The lens shade will cut an unwanted light beam, and it reduces flare and ghost image effect considerably.

HDP-7700ES HD Super telephoto conversion lens + High Definition camera.
(*The DVR-3000 lens has been discontinued its production in April 2003 and it is no longer available from us.)


Set the camera's f-stop at F/2.8 when used with Canon HV30/HV20/HG10/HR10 camera.Taking an image when the camera's aperture opening of F3.4 or slower than F3.4 may increase vignetting.(darkening corners of image.) Click and see the actual images taken with the HV20 camera.
● Vignetting may appear when used with Panasonic HDC-SD1, HDC-DX1 camera. Click and see the actual images taken with the HDC-SD1 camera. Remove camera's front ring before you mount the lens.
● Remove camera's lens hood first when used with Panasonic HD cameras.
● The 3.0x Telephoto 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.
● The built-in flash cannot be used when the Telephoto lens is attached. Otherwise, it will create a shadow of the lens on the picture.
● When the Telephoto lens is attached, the remote control system of the camera may not function properly. We recommend trying a rehearsal shooting if you have to use the remote control system, to make sure.
● To protect the camera from an accidental damage please remove the HDP-7700ES Lens before moving the camera and Do not carry around the camera with the HDP-7700ES Telephoto lens attached.
● The HDP-7700ES Lens is designed for using at the telephoto end of the camera lens, and it may create a vignetting effect (darkened corners) when zoomed to the wide angle range.
● Please note that the minimum focusing distance with the HDP-7700ES Lens attached will be approximately 9 times more of the original distance figured at the telephoto end. We recommend to use a sturdy tripod when shooting with HDP-7700ES lens on.
● You may aware of the lower magnifying power at a shooting distance of 50 meters or less, with HDP-7700ES lens attached on. It could be less than 2.8 times.
● The specifications and cosmetic designs may change without a prior notice.
● There will be no influence on the original F number of the camera when HDP-7700ES lens is on. It remains the original F number of the camera lens.
Screw-thread pitch size is 0.75mm unless specified.
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.
