Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera

1 Answer

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion icon to stop blinking red to white at full zoom? Can i still take quality shots at different focal lengths with the blinking red icon in the view finder or at only full zoom.What have i missed? Thanks!

Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with the zoom all the way in (cause your getting the widest angles). As far as quality, you really shouldn't have an issue except you may get black edges depending on how big the end of your lens is. Good luck

Is there an adapter for Tokina Rmc 1 3.5-4.5 35-135mm Zoom Lens to fit to panasonic gh2 m4/3?


Perhaps. Tokina makes lenses with a variety of mounts. If the lens already has an m4/3 mount then you won't need an adapter at all. Some Tokina lenses take the "universal" T-mount. In this case remove the current mount and put on an m4/3 mount. If it has some other fixed mount, m4/3 adapters are available for some of them. It all goes back to the mount already on the lens.

Lens


You have a 55mm filter size on your camera, and the accessory lens requires a 62mm camera connection. I think you are looking through a 55mm tunnel into a 62mm lens (over-simplified I know). The black ring is the result, and I don't think you can fix that. Is the telephoto a Panasonic accessory, or a third party item. I think I already know the answer to that. I'd take it back and see what Panasonic recommends - you'd be happier. However, Panasonic has Leica glass (Leitz lenses) so it won't be cheap.

Tiffen 2X teleconvertor telephoto lens


I was testing the new Kenko 2x teleconverter I just got. Seems to work, but only at full zoom. But I left the epson supplied adapter ring on when I turned the camera off, and it interferred with the lens cover, and jammed it. It's a 4 leaf shutter assembly, and mine is screwed up so it won't open or close. Needless to say I'm kind of unhappy. I've heard Epson service is good, guess I'm about to find out. If you use the adapter, take it off when you turn the camera on or off!

Telephoto images


The D-630 has a 3x optical zoom and a 4x seamless digital zoom. In order to use the digital zoom, press the OK/MENU button on the back of the camera. Press the right arrow key to access the Mode Menu. The first setting under the CAMERA tab is DIGITAL ZOOM. Press the right arrow key to highlight this setting and then press again to select ON. Press the OK/MENU button to set the DIGITAL ZOOM to remain ON. When you press the zoom button with the T on it, a zoom indicator will display on the right side of the LCD. The W represents a wider area of view as you zoom out, and the T represents telephoto as you zoom closer to the subject. When the zoom indicator is in the red zone, you are using the digital portion of the zoom. images taken in the digital zoom will appear “noisy” or “grainy” which is normal when using the DIGITAL ZOOM.
