The new EX 1.5X Tele Converter from 16x9 is designed to enhance the performance of compact HD camcorders, including the Sony HVR-V1U and HDR-FX7. The latest in the 16x9 EX collection of HD-quality lens accessories, the 1.5X simply threads onto the front of the camera lens, adding 1.5X magnification.
When used with the HVR-V1U's internal 1.5x digital extender, the EX 1.5X combines to produce a full 2.25X telephoto effect. The original camera lens focal length of 3.9mm to 78mm shifts to 14mm to 175mm, or the equivalent of a 35mm still lens with a range of 135mm to 1683mm.
The new 16x9 attachment also offers significant zoom-through ability. When used with the internal extender, the Tele Converter lets operators zoom nearly 12.5X before vignetting.
