I have a Sony DCR-PC100E camcorder and i'm looking to take it skiing. I'd like to fit it with a wide angle lens, but i'm unsure that 1. an alternative lens can be fitted, 2. what size i need. Does anyone know?

    No it doesn't accept other lenses.  Sorry.

    Don't be so quick to accept the first answer. While the DCR-PC100E does not have interchangeable lenses, it does have a 37mm thread ring for filters, and there are scrow-on wide angle adaptor lenses from Sony and aftermarket manufacturers designed for video cameras like this.

    nickedwards feel free to ask for the points refunded.

    Here is a link to what LHerrou is speaking of.  I tried one when I first got mine and was disappointed with the results.  That is why I wouldn't recommend it.

    RDAdams, your link is to the camcorder itself, and not the lens accessory. Sony's cheap lens (I think it's like $49) is pretty much crap, but they have a more expensive one that's better, and some of the aftermarket ones are cheaper AND better. I don't care about the points, no need to make any changes there.
