Make your Kodak Zi6 or Zi8 (or any flip camera) into a Wide Angle
As I've mentioned in a previous post, the Kodak Zi6 is a great camera with which to capture content. But like many of its siblings (the Flip cameras, for example), it's not wide angle enough to record many speeches or especially panels, which means it has to be put further away from the subjects to get the whole view. This makes audio quality suffer. Today, I fixed that. Here's how (total install time, under 5 minutes).
First, I bought the Sunpak 0.45 wide angle lens from Amazon.com for $29.95.
Then, I installed the adhesive ring on the front of the Kodak camera. Amazingly, it fit perfectly! The wide angle lens now snaps right on magnetically to the ring I installed. Here are some pics of the setup.
