Anamorphic lens options for sd camcorder.

There were Panasonic and Century adapters that screwed onto a filter thread and looked like they had some corrective elements to produce an acceptable image. Now, they're rare and usually expensive. You can buy an HD camera for less, maybe a stills camera with a video capability. Or a used HDX900 if you want to have ENG ergonomics and cheap hi-end zoom glass. Or something like a Sony DSR570WS if you need DV and nothing else.

The Panasonic adapter was the LA7200 and one went on eBay for $1000 recently, probably because they're seen as providing a degree of true anamorphic look to more modern cameras. It doesn't work brilliantly well, but that's why they're expensive.

 

If all you need is 16:9 pictures, I can only back up what Michael says - buy a basic HD camera.
