Product Description

This is a premium 58mm wide angle lens with 0.45x magnification for cameras and camcorders. The lens will multiply angle view of digital/video cameras by 0.45 times, which more than doubles the angle of view of the camera. It's great for landscapes or recording in situations where a little creative curvature of field is wanted for a certain style. This unique lens works on all Cameras & Camcorders with 58mm size Lens Filter thread! This excellent lens can be separated in two pieces (unscrewed): macro part and wide angle part. So you can use it both ways: like macro lens (without wide angle part) and like wide angle with macro together! This is a very unique feature of this lens for its price. So for the price of only ONE lens you are getting TWO!

Decent results considering the price. Dec 4 2009
By H. S. Pope - Published on Amazon.com

BUYER BEWARE (12/30/10 update):
I have received several comments on my review (Thanks, James!), have read several other reviews and have looked at the pictures posted by other users. Please be aware that the most recent pictures and the some of the most recent purchasers have NOT received the same product that is pictured. Please review the pictures that I have posted compared to several other users. If your results are significantly different than mine using a Canon EOS 18MM lens (or equivalent), then it is possible that you received a different product. If you received the same product, there should not be significant distortion in the picture or black rings around the edge when using the same lens at 18MM.

-------------------

I purchased this lens attachment in lieu of purchasing a brand-name wide angle lens. I wasn't expecting much, since it was only $10. That said, I was pleasantly surprised by the results.

I tested this attachment with my Canon EOS XSi and an EF-S 18-55mm lens, fully closed to 18mm. I shot images with and without the wide angle attachment, and noted a clear difference between the width of the target area. I viewed the images side by side on my large monitor (32" LCD HDTV) and did not see a significant loss of image quality. There was slight loss of sharpness, but not much.

Using the macro attachment with the same lens, I noticed a clear difference in the minimum focal distance of the lens, but I did not notice any loss of picture quality. The close up image was very sharp when viewed on the computer screen.

In both cases, autofocus did not work properly, so I had to use manual focus to achieve the best pictures. When holding the shutter button down halfway, the green focus indicator within the view finder worked properly though, and helped me get the best focus.

There are clearly higher quality lenses that serve this purpose, but this lens (wide angle and macro) is definitely something I will carry in my bag until I can purchase those more expensive lenses. It is definitely worth the $10, if you need something now.

NOTE: I also added pictures showing my test results. Follow the "See all # customer images" link below the main product picture to see my examples.

NOTE 2 (9/11/10): I've received a few questions about this lens and wanted to qualify this review a little bit. Shoppers please remember that this is a $10 lens. Even off-brand lenses for the Canon cameras costs $200+, so please do not expect to achieve the same quality results using a screw attachment. It may work in a pinch, but I would not rely on this attachment for critical photo ops when you can afford a true wide angle lens. Despite my initial thought that I would get a lot of use out of this lens, I haven't taken it out of bag, since I wrote this original review in December 2009. I haven't found the need for it. If fact, for wide angle or panoramic pictures,I use my camera's continuous shooting mode to take a series of pictures and use Adobe Photoshop Elements 7 [OLD VERSION] to splice the pictures together. It includes a feature that does this for you automatically and the results are amazing.

You definitely get what you pay for! Dec 4 2009
By H. S. Pope - Published on Amazon.com

I tested this lens attachment as soon as the shipment arrived and was extremely dissatisfied with the results. I paid less than $10, so my expectations were not very high, but I re-packaged this item and I'm ready to print the return label. I also purchased a Zeikos 4.5x lens, and had similar poor results. Zeikos ZE-4558T 58mm 4.5X Telephoto Lens

I purchased this attachment because no manufacturer currently makes a bona fide teleconverter attachment for the Canon EF-S lenses and I thought this would be a reasonable alternative until I purchased a longer lens or lenses that could be used with a teleconverter. I expected some quality loss, because even this cannot be avoided with top brand teleconverters. However, some of my test images were clearly unacceptable.

I tested this attachment with my Canon EOS XSi with both my EF-S 18-55mm lens and my EF-S 55-250mm lens. With the 18-55mm lens extended to 55mm, the images definitely appeared closer, but I cannot say that they were truly 2x closer. The images were not as sharp as the images without the attachment, but the results were surprising respectable. Also, autofocus was not much of a challenge, but I did use manual focus to get the best picture. That said, if this attachment truly achieved 2x that would give you the equivalent of a 110mm lens. The images were clearly not even close to those of my other lens at 110mm, so I would have sent it back simply based on this.

The test results with the 55-250mm EF-S lens were far worse, which I guess would be expected. First, with the lens fully closed to 55mm, the image was partially blocked by the outer ring of the lens attachment. With the lens fully extended, the image turned completely foggy and blurry. In fact, I could not even make out the text on the side of a box that I could clearly see with the 250mm lens alone.

In conclusion, I imagine this lens attachment may be useful in some limited situations, as I demonstrated with my 55mm lens. However, to say that this is a quality product that can be used on even an entry-level DSLR camera (which the Canon XSi is considered) is a major overstatement. I could see how this might be useful on a mid-range point-and-shoot camera that lacked sufficient zoom range. It is clear that any quality DSLR camera has lenses available that would easily exceed the quality of the images shot within the limited range of this attachment, which I demonstrated with my 55-250mm lens. With a high megapixel camera, I would even guess that a cropped image from a 55mm lens would still beat an equivalent photo shot with this 2x attachment.

For those with a DSLR, save your money and buy a better lens that will get the results you are looking for.
For those with a point-and-shoot, save your money and buy a better point-and-shoot.

NOTE: I also added pictures showing my test results. Follow the "See all # customer images" link below the main product picture to see my examples.

Buy this now! Oct. 9 2010
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com

C'mon, for seven bucks, you can't go wrong. It provides the wide angle advertised with some reasonable barrel distortion giving a slight fisheye aspect to the photo. I bought a 52-58 mm adapter to go along with it and attached it to my Canon A590IS. I had a fun day taking pictures emphasizing the distortion, as well as landscapes widening up the perspective. It's a great way to add some creative license to your pictures without breaking the bank. If you've been thinking about a fisheye lens, this is a great way to experiment before you buy a more expensive one. I attached to a point a shoot, so your mileage may vary, but it's worth a try.

Useful, Economical Addition to Camcorder Toolkit Dec 28 2010
By Robert Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Here are some comparative shots taken with a Canon Vixia HFS 200 camcorder, without the lens, with lens and macro, and with lens but not macro. Notice in the final very wide shot (the true .45x) there is some fisheye distortion and a bit of shading around the edges. However, the increase in angle of capture is so dramatic that the effect is worth it. Consider the distortion as part of the effect.
