The Diamond 0.3x is designed for the skydiver in mind with a low profile physical design creating less risk of line snags, and a large image area with Absolutely No Vignette! (Black corners in the image).
With a wide-angle lens, you can more easily include foreground subjects and emphasize the distance to the background. A wide-angle lens has a shorter focal distance than a normal lens. From any given spot an image is made with a wide-angle lens, it includes more field of view than with a normal lens.
The Diamond 0.3x produces about a 110-degree field of view, the No. L1318 Stealth 0.5x produces about a 67-degree field of view, and the No. L1320 Platinum 0.2x produces about 180-degree field of view (actual field of view depends on your camcorder's specifications).
Whether you prefer to use the Diamond 0.3x, the Stealth 0.5x or the Platinum 0.2x depends on how far away you think you might usually want to be from your subject.
