About the Nikon WC-E80 Wide Angle Converter Lens for Select Coolpix Cameras (25106)
One of the most frustrating problems facing any digital photographer is the inability to fit an entire group of people or breathtaking landscape scene in the picture. While you can’t remove the standard Coolpix lens and replace it as you can on an interchangeable lens SLR camera, you can quickly and easily attach this accessory wide-angle lens onto the camera’s built-in lens to get the results you want.
The Nikon WC-E80 converter increases the wide-angle view of your lens by a magnification of x0.8 to offer enhanced coverage equivalent to that of a 22mm lens (Coolpix 8400) or 28mm lens (Coolpix 8700/ 5700) on a 35mm SLR. Both autofocus and auto-exposure functions work are retained and its large precision front lens element maintains your lens speed and low-light shooting capability. Matching the optical design of this accessory lens to their camera’s prime lens, resulted in Nikon’s creating the highest quality wide-angle lens attachment possible for the Nikon Coolpix 5700, 8400, and 8700 cameras.
Please note that the WC-E80 requires optional Nikon UR-E8 Adapter (not included) on the Coolpix 5700 or 8700 and the Nikon UR-E9 Adapter (not included) is required for use on the Coolpix 5400.
