HDP-6000EX lens weighs 485g and it's rather bulky, and please support the lens by hand carefully in shooting, and dismount the lens after completing the shooting.
The HDP-6000EX wide-angle lens is designed with a priority purpose of widening the field of view in maintaining the superb high image quality when used at the wide angle range of a camera's zoom lens. Though it's compatible with a 20x zoom lens, please note that the image quality may degrade at fringe when zoomed to telephoto end with some high definition camera lens.
There will be no influence on the original F number of the camera when HDP-6000EX lens is on. It remains the original F number of the camera lens.
When using with a high powered zoom lens of video camcorder, the wide angle conversion lens set at the telephoto zoom end may create some flares in a picture, depending on the shooting condition. It can be improved by closing down the aperture of the lens. It is recommended to make shooting under the bright condition when using a wide-angle lens at the telephoto zoom end.
Use of HDP-6000EX + RA7282 adapter ring may cause vignetting on Panasonic AG-HVX200 HDV Camcorder.
Exposing the conversion lens to a warm atmosphere in an instant way from the cold area may create some dew on and inside the lens. When it happened inside the lens, keep the lens in a dry area till the dew disappear before using. Repeating such may leave dirt spot - (mildew) and affect the image.
All of Raynox conversion lenses are proudly made in Japan. At our owned manufacturing subsidiary, every stage of production is rigorously checked and tested so that the lens elements compensate effectively for astigmatism, distortion and spherical aberration.... for an excellent image quality.
The lens is neither made for dust-free nor moisture/water-proof.
