Panasonic HVX200 fisheye lenses and other questions
« on: February 23, 2021, 02:07:09 PM »
Hey Guys, I'm getting my HVX200 in a month with everything I need. I'm having a hard time trying to find a site that still sells fisheye lenses for it. Any recommendations on how I can get one? What else should I get for this thing?

Don't get the HVX. Get a Sony AX11 or a X70. The HVX is an out of date camera shooting to expensive media, and getting a fisheye for it is a pain in the aris unless you don't mind Opteka, and still, the camera is heavy and crap in low light.

If you still wanna get it, just get an Opteka/Kapkur 72mm fisheye, and get a step down ring from 82mm to 72mm and you'll be good to go. Save the few grand you'd spend on a Xtreme and do something nice with your girlfriend/boyfriend, or buy your mum a present. Buy some drugs I don't know. Good luck

If the "Xtreme" fish eye lens go for big bucks right now. Rarely pop on eBay.

I canít believe this shit goes for $5600, unreal. Itís not even a good lens IMO.

The Sony X70 is older and I have no idea what a Sony AX11 is 🤔
