    Hi, I have a Sony PC106E Video Camera and i was just wondering if anyone had any sugestions on a fisheye for it. I am into skateboarding and one of the lens that a skaters use on their video cams are the Century Optics Fisheye which i like the look of but i was just wondering if any one could tell me where i could get this from and how much it would cost in the UK.
    Thanks

    I wouldn't go blowing huge sums of money on Century stuff.

    Check here first:

    www.keene.co.uk

    They have wide angle adaptors and adaptor rings for lots of cameras perhaps even fisheyes. Or try Optex in the UK.

    Cool thanks for the info i will try these places out later. I don't know why mostly all well made skateboard movies they use fisheyes, i think it might be so they can get closer to the skateboarder when doing tricks.
    Thanks
