The specifications and cosmetic designs may change without a notice.
When used with the camera other than listed on [Applicable Models], it may reduce the power of wide angle.
The HDS-680K lens is a precision optical instrument, assembled with critical alignment tolerances. Do not subject it to severe shock and to the conditions of excessive cold, heat or humidity.
Do not use the built-in flash when the HDS-680K lens is attached on. If you do, the shadow of the lens may show on the picture.
There may be some chances of malfunction of the remote control when used while the HDS-680K lens is on. So, it's recommended to make a rehearsal shooting, before using the remote control system.
Please treat and protect carefully in shooting the camera with the HDS-680K lens on. Please remove the HDS-680K lens from the camera whenever a shooting is over, and do not carry around the camera with the lens on. It may cause damages or spoil the lens and the camera as well.
With the HDS-680K lens on, usually do focus the camera under Auto Focus mode.
Although you may detect a white dot in the HDS-680K lens sometimes when looking into from the front, but it's not out of normal and would not affect any of image quality.
When mounting the HDS-680K lens onto the High Definition camera, we recommend set the camera vertically and do it carefully.
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.
The lens is neither made for dust-free nor moisture/water-proof.
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.
