Know anything about Sea & Sea's Digital Wide Conversion Lens 0.56X?

05 July 2017 - 08:05 AM

I bought this externally mounted wide angle lens to add some width to my old system. Unfortunately I had to use step-up rings to attach it, and the extra distance from my port narrowed the angle of view, so, after six or seven dives, it got bunted to the back of the dive locker.
Years later I've decided to sell it and can find almost no information about it online. For instance, what is its coverage? 20mm? It has 55mm threads on the rear; what camera or housing is it designed to screw into? And what does 0.56X mean?
 I asked the same question in another forum here and received no reply. Does anyone have informative details on this beastie?

I bought this to add some wide angle function to my system. Unfortunately I had to use step-up rings to attach it, and the extra distance from my port narrowed the angle of view, so it got bunted to the back of the dive locker.

I suppose it's a worm's operculum of some sort. On the sand bottom at 30' in Monterey, CA.
