Why does my Lumix FZ72 occasionally ask me to Please restart camera when using a DMW-LT55 teleconverter NOT in teleconverter mode?


When the lens (barrel) is obstructed in its free movements, not knowing you did put a heavy converter on it, it could sense that and asking for a reset. Also when it senses the lens is not in the position it was send to. Or when the camera has problems to focus correct. Don't think your camera is defect. Everything is functioning as it should.

I want to add a lens to take better close ups from far away. What would be the product number?


If you want to take close-ups, you want the DMW-LC55 (and the DMW-LA1 adapter).

If you want to take pictures from farther away, you don't need any additional gear. Just get farther away from the subject then take the picture.

I bought filters for Nikon d60 n I don't kno how to fit them.now they told me tk buy the 55 mm filters so I bought them because apparently thats the size of my lens which 18-55 mm n now I dunno if the...


They told you wrong. The 18-55mm lens takes 52mm filters, as is marked on the lens near the mount.

You can either trade your 55mm filters for 52mm filters, or else get a 52-55mm step-up ring, which will adapt a 55mm filter for a 52mm lens.

Filters go onto the front of the lens. Remove the lens hood if one is attached. You'll see a threaded rim around the lens. The correctly sized filter (or step-up ring) screws into that.

FZ18 Lens Cap error message with telephoto converter


I have the same camera, and had the same problem. Make sure the camera is switched off. Then take 2 hard pieces of plastic with sharp ends. Carefully try & jam the outer ring with one, and try turning the converter with the other. I used a mini screwdriver, and left some marks on my camera. Thats why I recomend using plastic of some kind.
When you use the converter, switch off the battery saver in the camera. That way the converter won't jam again, as the camera won't switch off automatically. There is also a programme in the menu that is used for converters and external lenses. It also prevents the lens from retracting completely.
Hope I have helped you.

62 size


If you want to add other lenses, either macro, wide angle, telephoto or just filters, they go directly on the adapter. That's why the thread size (62mm) is important because that's the best fit for that adapter. If you get other sizes you can still use them with step rings but that adds to the expense and stepping down can cause vignetting. In case you were wondering, here is a link to the Phayee auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/... ...wItem&rd=1&item=3865219929&ssPageName=STRK:MEWA:IT

Wide angle adapter


I wouldn't worry about the adapter. I'm going to try ordering a telephoto converter this weekend.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).
