Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I just recently got a teleconverter lens for my canon s5 IS. I don't notice any appreciable difference between the 12X zoom and the teleconverter. The picture is slightly closer but not much. Also, I didn't notice ANY difference between setting the menu to teleconvter and when I didn't. I admit I'm a real novice when it comes to cameras. What am I missing or doing wrong?

With a 12X lens, if you put a 1.5X converter on it, there will be very little visual difference in the magnefication.

With a teleconverter, the lens will lose some F stop, and the optical image will be a little less sharp.

How do I restart canon sx130is lens error


This is a common error when there is a lens failure or the camera believes that there is something wrong with the lens. I would recommend that you bring it to a camera repair shop.

Want inexpensive 2x af teleconverter for d70 nikon lens 80-200 ed


You can order the Tamron 2x teleconverter here. Be aware that not all lenses are compatible with teleconverters, and you can actually damage some lenses by trying to use them with a teleconverter.

Will a quantaray AF LD 55-200mm lense work with a 2X teleconverter?


Well, this teleconverter would act as a magnifier to your lens. If you get a 2x teleconverter, it will double your zoom. so you'd then have a 110mm-400mm lens. The teleconverter is attached to your camera first, then the lens on to the converter. Make sure if you get a teleconverter that it's an autoteleconverter. Which means that it will allow you to still use autofocus. I would also make sure you get a name brand that has good glass because some converters will tint your images to a yellow ish haze that would require a whitebalance adjustment.

C-af 1 2x teleplus mc7 will not auto focus with my 90-300mm canon ef lens on my canon d7 dslr. can you help please.


Teleconverter loses maximum lens speed.
With 2X teleconverter, your 90mm-300mm f4.5~5.6 will become something like f8~f11. Most SLR AF cameras need maximum aperture of f5.6 to autofocus so by using the 2X teleconverter on this zoom lens, it will not autofocus, because the lens's light gathering became too low.
Here is more information about using teleconverters.

Problem with digital concepts teleconverter


The SX1 has an amazing 20X optical zoom. The teleconverter will allow to get pictures if the camera zoom is not fully on 20X. It means that you can't get a full 40X zoom images, but a 30X maybe. I don't why canon has this problem.

Purchase Zoom Lenses


Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.

Digital zoom doesn't work


Wet has affected the circuitry and could be progressive-[in which case there will be no repair option] best let the camera dry out in a warm place. Take batteries out and let it dry. You could help it along by putting the camera in a snap shut poly-bag with some rice or salt in a cloth/tissue tie to absorb any moisture. As regard the Digital zoom- strict speaking it has no value -it is simply magnifying the centre of the recorded image. rely on the optical zoom and print up bigger section for better clarity.

Does the teleconverter lens make a difference for C-2100?


Yes they do make a lot of difference. Try using your digital zoom a bit - it's like that only without the image degradation (at least for a good lens). Use the search function on the forum. You'll find tons of information and examples. If by some chance you find a b300 for sale don't spend a lot of time deciding to by it - just get it.
