    can you tell me what size I need and where to get it?

  • Harrie Mar 25, 2014

    I can't help you there I even got no clue how you connect the lens to your Samsung, because there is no acc for that. I do have two adapter lenses , a 0,5 wide angle and a 1,5 tele, the first has an opening of 43 mm the last, a canon has an opening of 33 mm.

    The wide angle is a Hama. It fits on a 52 mm filter screw fitting. Perhaps you should look for third party acc firms, because Samsund does not have this kind of stuff. My guess is, you next camera will have exchangeable lenses. It took me 3 compacts, before I realised I should buy a DSLR. Today I saw a add, about a new Nikon 3100 with standard lens for less than 300 euro. That's is less than 400 dollar. I did spent more on acc, let alone my cameras. Success

The dark halo, is caused, by the size of the lens. The convertor lens, is smaller than the front lens of your Samsung and blocking the light on the sides.
That is the halo you see. If you want a conversion lens for your Samsung, you need a bigger one.

You need to remove the batteries and remove the memory card. Then reinstall the batteries. Finally, press and hold the "ok" button, the power on the camera. This is a factory reset trick. It fixes approximately 40% of all error messages on the KODAK EASY SHARE CAMERAS. But of course, no one is gonna be kind enough to help somebody out, they just want to take your money!

Where can I get a memorty card SD 128 MB for my Kodak Easy Share C 743? Can I also use a larger memory card such as 2 GB or 4 Mb? A. N.

You can use SD cards up to 2GB in size. You cannot use SDHC cards bigger than 2GB. You should be able to get SD cards at any office supply or electronics store. You could probably even find them in most supermarkets and drug stores, though they might cost a little more.
