4x3 to 16x9 direct
These adapters optically convert 4x3 directly to
16x9, so there is no need for post production
re-formatting. This saves time and money in
post production. The 20x26mm adapter pushfits onto the front of single-chip miniature 4x3
“lipstick”cameras. The small size enables
discrete use in sporting events e.g. tennis line
calls, cricket stumps, motor-bike helmets, in
racing cars etc.
