Thread: Help Needed with Wide Angle Lens

    Unhappy Help Needed with Wide Angle Lens

    I own a DCR-HC28 MiniDV camcorder and also purchased the VCL-0625S wide angle lens that screws on to the camcorder lens.

    I have owned these two products for almost two years now but I seem to now have problems unscrewing the wide angle lens from the camcorder. Nothing I do to unscrew the lens from the camcorder seems to help. I am afraid that applying too much force might damage the camera. Has anyone ever had this problem and if so, did you ever find a solution for it?

    Thanks to all for your help in advance.

    Sounds like you over tightened it or cross threaded it, can say for sure since I cant see the camera. I don't if it can corrode or not. All you can do is try and hope for the best or send it in to a repair shop and see what they can do for you.

    I'm not sure if it is cross threaded but I am guilty of maybe leaving the lens on the camera a little bit too long. I was thinking about spraying some lens solution between the grooves in hopes of loosening it but I am not sure if that would lead to other problems.
