    Lens Adaptor from 43mm to 87mm for fisheye?

    I'm working for a non profit organization who doesn't have any money for new camera equipment but they have some decent stuff from previous summers.

    I found a fisheye lens with an 87mm thread size and I am using either the Panasonic GS250 (43mm thread) or GS320 (37mm thread) or Canon Vixia HF 10 (37mm thread).

    Is there any way to use this fisheye lens on any of these camcorders? I found a site that had an adaptor from 42mm to 82mm but that was the biggest it went.

    Any Ideas?

    Please help! thank you!

    you can always stack adapters so, but you won't get full fisheye, as the smaller cameras will only be using the middle part of the fish eye. You will probably get a bent wide angle though.
