Question about Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Telephoto lens I have added a telephoto lens to my pro 1. I have 2 lens adaptor tubes and a merkury 2x 58 mm lens. When I try to photograph at any distance the object is blurry, out of focus.I have tried only using optical zoom and it still won't focus properly.Every other aspect of the camera is great.Macro works great with the merkury wide angle macro lens & adaptor, it's just the tele lens. HELP, I can't get as close to the deer as I would like without the tele lens.

Need to convert a Vivitar 70-150mm telephoto from Canon TX to Nikon FTn mounts

Vivitar made several different 70-150mm lenses. If the lens has a T-mount then you can purchase a Nikon T-mount adapter and replace the Canon one on the lens. If the lens does not have a T-mount then you're out of luck. Nikon cameras have thicker bodies than Canon cameras, and an adapter would have to have negative physical size.

Is the Raynox DCR 250 compatible with 75-300mm Canon lens?

Have a look at this page for discussion about this adapter. Depending on the lens you're using it with - the DOF can be extremely shallow and make focusing difficult. If you're in Auto Focus mode - try switching to manual and see if you can get better results.

Good luck!

I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and I recently purchased a 2x telephoto lens. When I use the telephoto lens and try to extend the distance as far as it will go, the camera shuts off and says lens error...

Did you tell the camera that you are using an external/additional lens? You have to specify it somewhere in the menu, the camera gives you some options (the lens model numbers) and you need to match it with your lens' model number.

I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr nikon camera

You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below: Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph Cheers Ian

Attachment for filter and hood

If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.

hope that helps,
