Wide-angle camcorder lens

  • Sony VCL-0625S



Our take on the Sony VCL-0625S

by Dave Bar

Sony's VCL-0625S wide-angle lens is the ideal way to capture group shots in tight quarters or indoor areas where there's insufficient room to back away from your subjects. It simply attaches to the built-in lens of your compatible Sony camcorder to help pull even the largest groups into the picture without forcing everyone to squeeze closer together.
