(*1) The "UWL-100 Achromat Type2" is originally designed for a digital camera carrying 1/1.8 inch image sensor (CCD etc.), approx. 7mm focal length at zoom wide end (35mm film equivalent: 35mm) and approx. 3x zoom lens, and not designed for a digital camcorder iVIS HF20, iVIS HF21, iVIS HF M31 which carries 1/4 inch image sensor, 4.1mm focal length (35mm film equivalent: 39.5mm) and 15x zoom lens.
Our detailed compatibility test has confirmed that there is significant degradation of image quality on circumference part of an image comparing to compatible digital camera, so "compatibility is limited" only for those can accept below sample images / movies quality.

(*2) The combination of "UWL-100 Achromat Wide Conversion Lens Type2" and its super wide option "Dome Lens Unit for UWL-100" is NOT compatible since this combination has more significant image quality deterioration than above "UWL-100 Achromat Type2" stand-alone use. Please refer below sample image / movie to see image quality with this combination.

(*3) The UWL-100 Achromat Wide Conversion Lens "Type1" is not physically attached on the WP-V1/WP-V2. However UWL-100 Achromat "Type1" can be modified to UWL-100 Achromat "Type2". Please contact your purchasing dealer for detail.

(*4) It is recommended to use "UWL-H100 28M67 [Type2]" for its optical compatibility rather than using "UWL-H100 28M67 [Type1]" / "UWL-H100 28M67[Type2]" though both of them are physically attached on the water-proof cases. Optional "M67 Screw Ring Set for UWL-H100 28M67 Type2" allows you to change from Type1 to Type2.
"UWL-100 Achromat [Type1]" is not physically attached and "UWL-100 Achromat [Type2]" is not optically compatible.
