That won't workit is too small. If you do get one it has to be the large sized one for the action hd 1080p. 22mm to 27mm is the size that fits,if I remember correctly.

That depends on what you want. Did you want a fisheye or wideangle lens?

Whatever lens you get, you just want to make sure you get one that fits cameras with 17-27mm (11/16" - 1 1/16") diameter. That isthe size for the action hd 1080p.

honestly i always thought fisheye was a slang/generally used term for wide angle. but yeah i want a fish eye but just wide would be fine. whats the actual difference between the two?

and so im guessing these 2 are the best result ?

What did you plan on using the lenses for? A true fisheye lens is what they use in skateboarding.

Here's some info. http://www.demonfisheyelens.com/lens_facts.htm



Sometime ago I did a test on magnetic lenses and involved a wide angle lens. I did not like the results with it .But, maybe it's what your looking for.

For your problems, What are you doing when the file fails? Are you recording orplaying iton your computer.

As for imovie. I have no idea, I don't use it.

1. format sd orsdhc card in camera. rather the PC or mac

2. editing use software provided if pc mac you're not allowed. other 3rdparty,

editing you are basically your own editer.

yay. answers.

yes i am using for skateboarding. the file fails when i am recording. i always format the card on the camera not the computer. AND 1 card was an optima SDHC card and the other was another kind of sd card also

also last week for 2 days my camera didnt work. it would turn on and just show the display then freak out and shut down but light would remain on and i would have to take the battery out to turn it off. also when i connected it to the computer it wouldnt show. but that problem mysteriously disappeared

and what do you mean man your not allowed?...

i think i am going to get the fisheye magnetic lens.
