Customer Reviews:

  • Wide angle lens
    I bought this lens to give me more options on my Sony DSC-W7. I really like it! It's easy to attach and easy to remove and makes a noticeable difference on my pictures. This whole set up is not for a professional photographer but more for a person who'd like to take some better than average photos. I've managed to take some shots (especially of flowers in my garden) that two of my friends (with degrees in photography) say would be great blown up into posters! Sony makes great products!...more info
  • Very nice lens...just what I needed
    I bought this lens and the telefoto lens for my Sony W70 before going to Switzerland. Wow...the difference in pictures of the mountains made this purchase very much worth the money. I have only used it for pics outside, and the quality of the image is excellent. I have seen some complaints about shadowing, but haven't used this lens in a situation where I've needed the flash, so I can't comment on that. So far, for what I've used it for, I'm extremely happy with this lens. I've got no complaints....more info
  • adapter for wide angle
    Same as previous e-mail. Ordered two by mistake. Didn't think the first order was submitted. Therefore another was ordered....more info
  • Wide angle lens
    Bought this product to take closer photos of group family shots and to be able to take wider photos of scenic shots. Quality of photos is great!!...more info
  • so-so
    The adapter wide lens provides an ok performance. The adapter with the lens causes pics to be dark. the lens doesn't provide much more than original lens. so, if you want a little more in your pictures and have great lighting, then the adapter may be ok for you. just don't have too high expectations....more info
  • Sony VCL-DH0730 Wide Lens 30MM
    Recently purchased this product to take X-Mas photos.
    Pro - All family members were able to fit in the picture.
    Con - A shadow is produced at the bottom of pic when the flash is used. This is because the lens protrudes into the flash area.
    Anyone else have this problem or solved this issue?...more info
  • Nice product
    The Sony VCL-DH0730 30mm Wide Angle lens is a fine product as far as I can tell. It provides a much larger shot (as it claims) and I haven't yet noticed any of the distortion effects sometimes associated with wide angles lens. The only downside is the adapter I had to use on my camera (Sony DSC-W1) blocks the flash from a small portion of the bottom/center of the picture. (About 15% ?) On the upside, this sometimes forces me to turn off the flash and use a tripod, which usually provides a much nicer picture anyway.

    I've said this before, but it's worth repeating: Amazon makes if VERY difficult to ship to P.O. Boxes, and they still don't seem to understand why this is a problem! You guys need to work on it. I can't be the only person in the US that orders stuff off the Internet to a P.O. Box....more info
  • sony wide lense
    I purchased this product while on a deployment in AZ, had it shipped to my Hotel, I had to leave before I could recieve my product so I had the Hotel staff return the product. This was in July I believe, and I have yet to see a refund... my first negative experience, while I know it was not directly Amazons fault, probably the shipping company or Comp USA's, but it was still my first negative experience.......more info
  • Works great!
    This wide angle lens works wonders with any camera that it's compatible with. I manage to take very good pictures that would not be possible without the lens. The difference with and without the lens is very noticeable specially when you're taking pictures of far away objects. I manage to take a picture of the entire length of a spotlight from the ground up to the clouds using this lens.

    As other reviewers have said, it comes with a tradeoff. When using a flash, the shadow of the camera shows off in the picture. When used outside..some trails are visible against the background (like a ghosting effect). But overall, it's great!...more info
  • GOOD ADDITION TO CAMERA BUT WITH "TRADEOFF"
    I USE THIS LENS FOR MY DSC W-7. THIS LENS ENABLES YOUR CAMERA TO CAPTURE A WIDER VIEW. FROM A DISTANCE OF ABOUT 8 FEET AWAY FROM MY COVERAGE AREA, I HAVE NOTICED THAT IT ADDED ABOUT 2.5 FEET MORE ON EACH SIDE OF THE AREA. I FIND THIS COOL BECAUSE I DONT HAVE TO ASK SOMEONE TO SQUEEZE IN-FRONT JUST TO BE INCLUDED.

    GOOD POINT:
    USE IT AT DAY TIME OR ON A WELL LIT PLACE, NO PROBLEM. IT WILL PRODUCE THE SAME GOOD QUALITY IMAGE EVEN AT THE LOWEST RESOLUTION

    BAD POINT:
    WHEN YOU NEED TO USE THE CAMERA FLASH: IF YOU ATTACH THE ADAPTER & LENS TO THE CAMERA BODY, THE ATTACHMENT EXTENDS TO A LITTLE OVER 2 INCHES. THE BUILT-IN FLASH IS JUST ABOVE THE EXTENDED ATTACHMENT SO EVERYTIME YOU USE THE FLASH, THE GLOW THAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE SPREAD OVER THE SUBJECT SCENE DOES NOT GET THAT LIGHT BECAUSE THE ATTACHMENT BLOCKS IT. PHOTOS TAKEN SHOW AN OBVIOUS DARKENING (SHADOW) AT THE BOTTOM. I SEE THIS AS A STRUCTURAL DEFICIENCY WHICH "SONY" CORP SHOULD ADDRESS IN FUTURE MODELS. PERHAPS IF A "SEPARATE" FLASH CAN BE ATTACHED TO THE CAMERA THEN THIS PROBLEM WILL BE NEGATED.
    THIS BEING THE CASE, THE OTHER TWO LENS ATTACHMENTS AVAILABLE TO THE WSC W- SERIES WILL PRODUCE THIS SAME DEFICIENCY....more info
  • Nice lens, but requires a slave flash
    The lens takes nice wide angle pictures. However, it requires an adaptor on my DSC-W5 Sony Camera in order to fit. This puts the wide angle lens sufficiently away from the original lens that you see a shadow on the picture when using the build in flash. It appears that the build in flash is blocked a bit by the set up. The slave flash corrects this, but even at low setting it's sometimes too bright for the picture....more info
  • Sony wide angle lens
    The wide angle lens is good for outdoor pictures when you do not need to use the in-built flash. I used it with my DSC-W7 camera. It helped a lot to get wider pictures.
    The lens is not good for indoor pictures as it obstructs the flash light...more info
  • Pricey, but good
    I purchased one of these for my Sony DSC-W5. It is a well made, weighty piece, which matches the finish fo the VAD-WA adapter well. My wide angle photos came out pretty well, with good detail and a tolerably small amount of barrel distortion. ...more info
  • Decent wide angle
    I disagree with the previous review. I bought, tried and shipped back two other wide-angle lenses for a Sony P150, both with smaller ratio (0.6x and 0.45x). The problem was that they distorted the image way too much, and had unacceptable vignetting and chromatic aberrations. The Sony 0.7x lens might not be as wide as we would wish sometimes (is there a lens in the world that's wide enough to capture it all anyhow?!) but at least it gives decent results....more info
  • Lost money
    I bought this item on november 2004 to use with my excellent new DSC P100. My expectation was take good shots wtih wide angle, I don't have previus experience with how much mean 0.7X in terms of reduction of scenary angle. With the first photos, I really felt disapointing because the "wide angle" is not enough, actually the difference between the scenary angle with the lens and without it, is pretty low.

    Now I'm searching for lens with bigger reduction, maybe 0.45X...more info
