Re: canon digital camera
Hey jpmodell, Whether or not you can use your old lenses on a new DSLR body depends on how old your lenses are and what model lenses they are. Modern Canon DSLR cameras use what is called the EF mount which was introduced by Canon in 1987. Canon lenses prior to 1987 have what is called the FD mount which will not directly mount onto new digital cameras. Some companies do make an adapter to allow the user to mount an FD lens onto an EF mount camera but it would provide very limited functionality. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.

None of these Canon Powershot cameras have a lens which will remove. The ring is only for a special kind of add on lens for either wide angle or telephoto, which will only fit this camera or possibly a few other models.
Never try to unscrew the lens, you will ruin the lens permanently.
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.
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.
Believe it to be a camera fault. Reason: zoom feature makes the lens extend for telephoto work, therefore, the autofocus feature should be working at any distance you set the lens for and your shots should be clear. Could be an autofocus problem or the lens and CCD are misaligned at the telephoto position. Have the camera checked by a qualified repairperson. Get an estimate first. You may want to ask this question at the Canon website also.
If you set the camera to P (program) the flash will not pop up automatically but the camera will still control the shutter speed and aperature settings automatically. Also with the lens you are using you should probably have a tripod which will help you hold the camera more steady.
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:
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).
