I think it makes a fairly big difference. At least the B-300 does. I don't have any explicit before and after photos but I think I can find some that I have taken. I will post them later. Just to give you an idea, I was at a Baseball game in Baltimore (Orioles' vs. Phillies) and I could get photos of the players in the outfield with the B-300 that would have been difficult without it.

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.

Nikon Teleconverter


You could probably use either a 1.4 x or a 2 x, depending on how much you wanted to increase the focal length of your lens. A 1.4 x would give you a range of 98-420, a 2 x would give you a range of 140-600.
Having said that, teleconverters are not usually recommended for use with zoom lenses, and you would lose one stop with the 1.4 x, two stops with the 2 x, thus necessitating longer exposures. Also, with the increase in focal length comes an increased probability of camera shake being more apparent, due to the increased magnification. In your position, I would attempt to get closer to the subject, using a teleconverter as a last resort if this is not possible.

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 bought a kit with a Canon EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 lens with a Vivitar Series 1 2XMC4 AF teleconverter. I have a Canon 6D. The camera reads F00 when hooked up and says there is no lens attached.


The teleconverter lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera, or to let the lens communicate with the camera. You have to use the manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

Use of teleconvertres


Teleconverters are not recommended with variable aperture and slow zoom lenses. Since there is an additional element, the effective max. aperture will get reduced to about f/8-11. So it is not worth the money.

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.

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...


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.

I tried using a 800mm lens with a 2x teleconverter on my canon digital rebel every time i press the shutter button i get err code 01 what does this mean


Hey there derf69, the error code "err 01" indicates the need to clean the lens contacts, which in your case you have several. I suggest you completely clean the contacts using a contact cleaning solution which dissappears completely. you can also use a clean eraser to effectively remove any resilient buildups. I suggest you completely disassemble your lens configuration, and rebuild, once all contacts on the lens and camera body have been cleaned. There is also a possibility that you may have an incompatibility problem. If the cleaning does not help, please let me know and provide the exact model name and number of your camera, lens, and converter. Good Luck
