Note: Trunk of GetHypoxic has done a full review of lenses and their compatibility with the CX100/105 & CX110/150. Trunk suggests using the Cookie Liquid 5 "if you have one. Hold on to it but think about upgrading. Good for 4:3 setups and for those wanting a .3 low profiles lens." His favorable comments include "Low Profile lens," while his drawback comments are "SD resolution, non-zoomable."
Camera-setting notes: To focus your Liquid wide-angle lens, set your camcorder to ‘auto-focus’ and let the image focus automatically. Then set your focus mode to 'manual' (usually the 'f' in the little hand). Do not use 'infinity' mode (the picture of the mountains). It is also possible to initially set your camcorder to ‘manual focus’ and use the ‘manual focus ring’ to self focus (some camcorders do not have a manual focus ring). It is possible to use your camera in any 'program mode' (sports, auto, beach and ski, etc). If your camcorder is anything but 'auto' however, you will need to manually focus your camera any time it goes out of focus. Use the manual focus ring to do this. Or, put the program mode back to 'auto' and let auto focus do the work, then choose your desired program setting. Don't worry, you will not need to re-focus your camera often; only if your camera goes out of focus for some reason.
