The Diamond .3 Wide Angle Lens

The 'Diamond .3' wide-angle video camera lens is now available. The lenses are handmade in Japan.
The Diamond .3 wide-angle lens gives a video camera a 110-degree field of view with very little barrel distortion. The lens is NOT a fish-eye.
The lens has no vignette (black corners in the field of view). It is perfect for freeflying, flat flying inside video, relative work and AFF coaching (from the instructor's angle), CRW, canopy swooping, BASE jumping or anything that an inside, wide-angle view is desired. Capture up-close shots with a crystal clear, non-distorted view.
The size of the lens is very low profile. The diameter is 44mm (1¾ inch.) and the length is 8mm (5/16 inch).
The small size has many benefits. It puts less stress and wear on the camera's frame and standard lens. It minimizes vibrations and camera shake since it is more than ¼ the size of other lenses. The chance of a riser strike on your camera's lens is decreased, as well as contact with any other object.
The lens is available in two different thread sizes, 30 mm (pc-1, 3, 5, 9, etc.) and 37 mm (pc-7, 10, 100, 110, etc). In most Sony camcorders, no adapter ring is needed.
The retail price of the lens is $200 US.
A special summer sale price is being offered at $175 (plus s/h)
For more information and to order, please contact Max Cohn from Generation Freefly by email at or by phone at 201.538.4652.
