First of all, tele-multipliers or tele-converters do not have the greatest optics in the world, and are usually fine for close up images but not much else. Secondly, they do restrict the amount of light coming into the camera which could interfere with the internal metering. Third, you have additional lens surfaces to get dirty. To fix the problem, start with the easy one, and clean all lens surfaces meticulously with a soft lint free cloth. If that doesn't fix it, try shooting non-moving objects in brightly lit areas. If you are still getting blurry pictures, try using the tele-converter on a close-up image within the focal length of the lens combination. If that doesn't work, give the teleconverter to someone you don't like and go buy a good quality 50-135mm zoom lens. Vivitar, Sigma, or other similar lenses are good quality and are very reasonably priced.

I once had an Olympus sp500uz and I used it until I simply wore it out. I don't think you can change lenses in that camera so you can't just go out and buy another lens.

That means that if you want to increase the focal length of the lens, your only option is to use a doubler such as you describe. Unfortunately, that may impact the ability of the autofocus to work.

However, if the shot is in focus on the screen, the picture in the camera should be in focus as well. If you can't get it to focus clearly before you shoot, then the 2X lens is not compatible with your camera.

If it is in focus and the pictures are not clear, there's another problem and it might be worthwhile to contact Olympus technical support to see what they advise.

All that being said, I recall that the sp500uz had an excellent and exceptionally long focal length zoom telephoto that could be adjusted quickly with the push of a button and the autofocus would quickly adjust to the zoom. You may just be asking the camera to do more than it is capable of.

How do i attach the my zeikos 52mm HD Dslr MC AF 2x telephoto lens to my nikon d90?


You don't. The Zeikos attaches to the front of lens with a 52mm filter thread, which then attaches to the D90. If you have the 18-55mm lens, for example, this will fit onto the front of that lens, effectively converting it to a 36-110mm lens. If you have the 18-105mm lens, this won't fit onto it.
This device is really intended for use with cameras that don't have interchangeable lenses. With your D90, you're much better off using another lens instead of putting this onto the front of another lens.

I have an SP 510 UZ digital camera. I have just bought a new telephoto lense, but I can't seem to get the existing lense off the cammera. Help!


Hey john42hockey,
The lens on this camera is not removable. What you need to attach the telephoto lens to your camera is to get a 43-55mm Step-Up Ring, and a CLA-1 lens adapter tube. You should first attach the lens adapter tube to the camera, and then screw the step up ring into the tube and then screw the telephoto lens into step up ring. I have included a link to the manufacturer where you can purchase both the step up ring, and the lens adapter tube incase you need these. I hope this helps!

when using any digital camera, you need to do a soft press on the shutter button to capture better pics... when pressing down hard, the images tend to be less than desirable

Conversion of LCD


Unfortunately such conversion is not possible. If the "vari angle" screen is an essential your best approach would be to dispose of the SP 550 UZ and buy another camera meeting your need. Sorry!

if you go to the olympusamerica.com/store you will see the telephoto lens but you will need the cla-10 adapter to use it with your camera
although you do get more telephoto with it... you can turn the digital zoom on in the camera and go to 90+ times zoom

Problem with camera OLYMPUS SP 500 UZ


This sounds like a CCD issue in the camera. The CCD is the part in the camera that captures the image (the "digital film") if you will and converts it to a format the camera can read.

When they go bad a lot of times you will see weird colorations and/or stripes, very similar to what you are describing.
You can try eBay for a place to buy, or maybe check the manufacturer.
