The Opteka Platinum Series 37mm 0.3X HD Ultra Fisheye Lens.
This is one of 5 HD lenses we have specifically listed at ChutingStar for the CX100/105 & CX110/115/150/155 cameras based on testing by Trunk of GetHypoxic. Trunk specifically lists the Opteka .3x HD lens as an "Inexpensive alternative to the 'Baby Death' lens. Highly recommend for close footage." His favorable comments include "awesome quality, high resolution," while his drawback comments are that it is a "wide lens and heavy lens, non-zoomable."
This HD Opteka .3x lens is an essential tool for extreme sports and dramatic action shooters. The 0.3x Super Fisheye Adapter offers an extreme fisheye effect and a high degree of barrel distortion. It exaggerates depth by pulling nearby objects closer and causing distant objects to recede into the background. Advances in high-index/low-dispersion optical glasses, new barrel materials, and exotic anti-reflection coatings, along with the latest in computer-aided-design/computer-aided-manufacturing, are combined to produce lenses of unprecedented quality.
The Opteka Lens includes metal step-up rings to fit most camera types.
The Opteka .3X HD Lens is in stock at ChutingStar for immediate shipment.
Here are few reasons Opteka says the "Pros Choose Opteka High Definition."
- HD2 (High Definition 2) 2 times the resolution of standard high definition lenses.
- DMC (Digital Multi-Coated) Greatly reduces the appearance of lens flare and ghosting caused by reflections.
- BAB (Internal Black Almite Barrel) Black matte satin finish which reduces reflections.
- BRG (Black Rimmed Glass) Reduces the chance of light reflecting off the edge.

BABY DEATH GOODNESSGreat lens for capturing those wide angles you need for skating. You do have to get up-close and personal with your buddy though. Captures some amazing video for that little bit of sacrifice though. Highly recommend this lens for the price
Great alternative to the CenturyOpteka has always been known for making respectable third party gear. This lens is a great alternative to the Century Baby Death priced at 1/3 of the cost. Chromatic abberations are less controlled compared to the Baby Death, fogging is a little more pronounced in humid environments but vingetting is kept in check and this lens should last a long time.
