(*1)Contact Canon Inc. for detail of camcorder/water-proof case. INON Inc. confirms product compatibility based on a camcorder/housing available in Japan.


Compatibility with INON attachment lens

The WP-V1 directly holds INON "M67 Mount series" attachment lens.

  • Macro lens
    UCL-330/UCL-165M67 close-up lenses are compatible.

  • Wide lens
    The UWL-100 Achromat Type2 is physically attached on the WP-V1 (*2). Please note followings when using this wide conversion lens.

    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 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.

  • Optional attachment lens for semi-fish-eye shooting
    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.
(*2)The UWL-100 Achromat Wide Conversion Lens Type1 is not physically attached on the WP-V1. However UWL-100 Achromat Type1 can be modified to UWL-100 Achromat Type2.
Please contact your purchasing dealer for detail.
