Are you referring to the one that attaches to your lens and it becomes a wide angle kit?

Sure, there is feedback. If you take the efforts to search the forum you will find related feedback. There's even a thread collecting example images when using such adapters. So far I have yet to see any positive feedback - unless you fancy distortions and lower image quality.

Just to let you know, these 0.42x or 0.5x wide angle tele-converter are some ways the shops try to "chop" you.
They will quote $100+ for it.. ;)
Second that, it is known as "vitacon" for a reason and just for your information Photo & Consumer Investments Pte Ltd is the owner of the brand.

My sch has two, a 1.5x tele and a 0.5x wide angle. Its classified under video camera lens, but i dont know the quality of photos that you can get out of it. I think that I will be mounting it onto my cam soon and then I can find out.

Post back when I have more info...

No need to test, as stated in this thread, it's been tested and slammed. They're rubbish, not worth more than 20-30 SGD. No point ruining your pictures with them.
