Wide Angle Lens for Amphibico VX 2000 housing

Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow Aquanauts!

I just started filming and I am thinking about getting a wide angle lens for my Sony VX 2000 in a Amphibico housing and now have a few questions.

 

-what are the odds finding a second hand one?

 

-what would you pay for it?

 

-100 degrees or more?

 

-do you think it is worth it? Will it make a big difference? Please share your own experience...

 

Thank you for taking time with this

 

Cheers

Roger

Amphibico never released their promised SWA for the VH2000. They did give a few people their older SWA lens that worked with the VH1000. I believe from memory it's based on the thalacetor SWA lens. They were near $6k retail at the time.

Good luck finding something now. Another choice is to custom build a lens.

If that lense was ever released it would have looked like this. :angry:

Gee, thats boarderline mean... What I heard was basically, "Ha! Ha! I have one (and probably the only one) and you don't".. But then again, I would probably have done the same thing.
