Kenko SGW-05 PRO wide-angle video conversion lens is designed for compact digital/video cameras that have a higher resolution recording ability such as DV formats. The KGW-05 Pro widens the angle of view by multiplying the focal length of the video camera by 0.5 times. This doubles the angle of view making it an excellent lens for groups or wedding videotaping. This view can also improve the composition of many interior and wide scenic shots.
This compact camcorder lens features optical glass lens elements, which are multi-coated to reduce the possibility of flare and ghosting caused by light reflecting off the surfaces of the elements and then reflecting again into the camera. The inner barrel of the lens has a matte-black finish to further reduce the chance of any internal reflections while the outer barrel has an anodized silver finish to match the appearance of most digital video cameras on the market today.
