16×9 Inc. upgrades its EX line of specialized lens attachments with the introduction of the high-definition-quality EXII 0.45x Super Fisheye. The new, single-element EXII 0.45x Super Fisheye offers significant improvements in design and functionality:
- Smaller, lighter design
- Fits more cameras
- More mounting options
Being smaller and lighter than its popular predecessor makes the EXII 0.45x Super Fisheye ideal for handheld applications. The new design allows it to fit an even wider variety of cameras without vignetting issues, particularly when the lens is set to full wide. The HD-quality Super Fisheye lens attachment has more mounting options, including threaded 62mm, 72mm, 77mm and 82mm, as well as multiple bayonet mounts for most popular cameras from Panasonic and Sony.
A favorite of extreme sports cinematographers, fisheyes expand the view of the lens, providing a wide-eyed perspective that pulls the eye close to the center of the action. By adding a full .45x magnification, images appear convex with exaggerated angles and extreme barrel distortion. For example, when added to the front of the Panasonic AG-HVX200, it delivers a 115-degree horizontal and 135-degree diagonal field of view.
