I must state first that I use this product with a Canon XA10.
As I previously stated I am not a huge photography fan, but what I am is a good usability and real world reviewer, I look at the little things which will end up bothering you the most at some point in the lifetime of a certain product. With this one though it is not the case, I really enjoyed it fully, good bang for the buck too, I cannot imagine how it is to pay the £1500 or more sums for a lens, I will never need such a device.
I have tried a few Teleconverters before with mixed results,but this time the lens is better than I expected,and although not the cheapest it comes with a price,and I expected high of it ,because this is a piece of glass after all,and for a piece of glass it more expensive than some good Smartphones and also it is made by Canon and they never let me down!
What I like
The image is sharp, with very little loss of light. Since functionality has the most weight in the evaluation, I would say, don't even bother with any other brand.It produces stunning results and I rarely am impressed by pictures.It has excellent reliability. No complaints after a lot of use.Did not have to call Canon on anything yet, so albeit I cannot evaluate the support,but I guess that's another point for reliability.
What i do not like
Te lens is quite heavy,it's heavier than the device,and as expected it needs a tripod.And the worst of it you cannot put in filters on this thing. Even if you tried putting in a 58mm filter on the camcorder, and then try to screw it on, it won't be stable.
All in all I will give it away soon,and if you ask me,I recommend this product and I am completely satisfied by it.
The Canon Tele-converter TL-H58 is optically matched to the superb quality optics used in Canon's high definition camcorders. Offering a magnification factor of 1.5x, this converter provides an extended telephoto range, allowing distance subjects to be captured with brilliant clarity.
