Two years back I used a clunky vx9000e often with a suprisingly good kenko .5x wide adaptor.
Then I get my nice pro jvc shoulder cam - all lovely untill i think of getting a wide convetor - £ 900 - might as well get a wide lens - £10,000 argh !
In a shocking act of good sense just now I dug out the kenko and gaffa tapped it to the fujinon on the JVC - and it works a treat - still got the short end of the zoom and vignettes but a smidgen.
All I need is a £2.90, 52mm to 62mm adaptor - I am well pleased - now I can frame shots properly in normal sized rooms again. It flares like mad - no hood - so I can use my gaffa skills for a cool matt box too.
Never underestimate the power of the botch.
Stills are raw from camera in my 3.5m x 12 foot front room - both shot from back of the room - hugely more huge - nice.
