(Van Nuys, California--June 1, 2009) Schneider Optics introduces Century HD accessories for the new HVR-Z5U and HDR-FX1000 camcorders. Many of the Century lens add-ons created for Sony’s HVR-Z7U and HVR-S270U are also a perfect match for the HVR-Z5U and HDR-FX1000.
Attaching neatly to the camera’s lens front, Century Pro Series HD accessories are designed to help the user shoot wider, reach further, and move in closer than the lens alone will allow. These state-of-the-art optics produce crisp, high-resolution images with low distortion, and superior contrast edge to edge. Multi-coated glass elements provide sharp images free of unwanted distortion or chromatic aberration. Most units are equipped with a bayonet mount for quick, secure installation and easy removal.
Century HD accessories that are compatible with the HVR-Z5U/HDR-FX1000 include the .6X HD Wide Angle Adapter, .75X HD Wide Angle Converter, Fisheye HD Adapter, 1.6X HD Tele-Converter, and Achromatic Diopters in strengths of +2.0 and +3.5.
U.S. List price starts at $490.00. For more information on all Century accessories for popular DV, HDV, and broadcast cameras, contact: Schneider Optics, 7701 Haskell Avenue, Van Nuys, CA 91406, telephone (818) 766-3715; fax (818) 505-9865; http://www.schneideroptics.com
