Hello Edward.
What mount does it use?
Bayonet-type K-mount?
Screw mount?
Can you supply a photo or graphic of mount?

SOURCE: conversion lenses & filters

These screw on the front of the plastic lens adapter and adjust the focal length. On the side of the adapter lenses it will quote the ratio. My wide angle says 0.66x so just multiply the range of focal lengths by this figure and you will see that it adjusts the camera zoom accordingly - making the image wider and probably also increasing the depth of field (what is in focus). Similarly a 1.5 tele will inrease the range of focal lengths to make the lens "longer" eg higher magnification , useful for astro photography - shots of the moon and terrestrial long distance work but detracting from the depth of field, eg the range of distance over which objects are in focus will be reduced.

The wide angle will allow you to come in close and get WIDE objects fully in-frame- hence "wide angle", while the telephoto will give you better overall maginification of the image but will probably increase the MINIMUM focal length - eg you may not be able to focus on objects closer than >2m (instead of ~1).

The screw-on adapter lenses I found were cheap in a Jessops sale use a 52mm thread, while the S5500 provides a 55mm internal thread. I use an appropriate 55mm to 52mm step down ring adapter. There is slight vignetting (shading around the edge of an image) at certain combinations of zoom, but generally these are very useful accessories.

As these are adapter lenses on the front of an already powerful 10x zoom that must be optically compromised at the price of this camera, there maybe some colour fringeing around bright images. If you want a better solution you really need to get a DSLR. Overall a good solution for the price.

SOURCE: Camera won't autofocus

I too had D50 autofocus problems and ended up buying a new D300. I then learned that my issue was in the focus areas. The D50 has five focus areas. As you look through the lens, you will see one rectangle in the center and four to the top, bottom, left and right. You should make sure that the center rectangle is highlighted. Use the round thumbdial on the back of the camera to move the focus area.

SOURCE: I'd like to purchase a micro lens for my Nikon

If the Phoenix lens is autofocus (AF) in Nikon mount, it will work with the D90. You may find that you want to switch to manual focus when you are using it for macro shots for better control of focus. It will still set exposure properly when set to manual focus.

SOURCE: Nikon DX AF- S Nikkor 18-55 mm lens won't Auto focus

Is the switch on the side of the lens set to manual or auto? Sometimes it's the little things like this that we don't notice.

I just got a Bower Elite series 4.7x Xtreme high definition AF telephoto lens for my Nikon L810. Installed but it won't focus correctly. Does the camera need to be taken off auto focus, if so how?


It's not actually a telephoto lens, it's a telephoto adaptor. I have used something similar, though not this actual model, and only on MF lenses. Have you tried at all focal lengths of the zoom - it may only operate within certain limits. If it happens constantly, then you may need to switch to manual focus.

What is T Mount Telephoto Zoom Lens with 2x Teleconverter


The T-mount is a universal thread developed by Tamron which allows various adapters to couple a lens to a wide variety of camera brands. If a lens is listed as having a T-mount, it means that the lens can be coupled to your camera if you have a T-mount adapter for your camera.

A 2X teleconverter (often called a doubler) enables a lens of a specific to be doubled. For example, the lens referenced above actually is a 650-1300 lens but with the 2X teleconverter the focal length can be doubled to a maximum focal length of 2600.

I have an Opteka 600-1200 telephoto lens which I consider to be a decent lens for its very low price. I also have a doubler which came with my camera kit. That means I can increase the focal length of my lens to 2400 but I cannot imagine any reason to do so. At it's full zoom 1200mm focal length, this lens is very difficult to handle and must be used on a tripod with a remote shutter release.

It is extremely time consuming to focus and must be focused very accurately because it has almost no depth of field. At 1200 mm, the slightest breeze or vibration will cause the picture to go fuzzy from movement.

The lens is also large and does not fit conveniently in a camera bag so it rarely goes with me unless I know for sure that I will need it. It is not particularly good for sports action shots because the action will be over before you are ready to shoot the picture. With very bright light (such as the mid-day sun) and pre-planning and pre-focusing you might be able to get some interesting sports action shots. Say you're at an automobile race and you know a car will be coming into view at a certain spot, you can set up for that spot then trip the shutter when the car pops into view.

All that being said, I think this is a good lens to have in my bag without spending $10,000 plus for a really good lens of this size.

I don't know how to remove the lens for fujifilm s3200


You don't.

It may look superficially like an interchangeable lens camera, but it's not. The lens is permanently fixed to the camera.

Yep these work on all D-SLR,S you might need a t-mount to make it fit you camera ,cheap as chips on the bay .Use the camera on manual mode set fstop and focus on the len,s no af on these old slook types of telephoto you may have issues at these massive focal lenght as no IS on the len,s or you canon so tripod and cable release or self timer needed .But it will work massivly slow at 2600mm so long exposure time expected .

I have seen a add for Opteka 650-2600mm High Definition Telephoto Lens for Canon but if we see a price of the lens it seems to be too low. I am consuffed whether the lens is good or it is just a marketing...


It is an inexpensive lens. It's actually a 650-1300mm lens with a 2x tele-extender to take it out to 2600mm. It's slow, manual focus, without any form of image stabilization, and with no electronics so setting the exposure is also manual. It won't be as sharp as a Canon 600mm lens, for example, but it is a lot cheaper. Also bear in mind that the 2x tele-extender will cost an additional 2 stops of exposure, so with it attached the the already slow lens becomes a very slow lens, giving a very dark view through the viewfinder.

Minolta SLR Lens on Sony - Does it work.


As I understand it, Sony bought Minolta, lock, stock, and barrel. Theoretically the lenses should fit and may work on manual, but I'm very sure they will not totally work on sony digital cameras. I wouldn't even try to fit them as the autofocus system on the camera may be damaged.

I want to use fairly telephoto lens in D3 slr nikon camera


You don't say what sort of telephoto you want to buy or how much money you want to spend but basically anything longer than a 50 mm is regarded as telephoto.
A staring point for you maybe the lens listed below: Nikon Telephoto Zoom 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR
It importantly has VR or "Vibration Reduction" on it to reduce camera blur when hand holding telephoto shots. This is just a staring point... You need to work out what you want to photograph Cheers Ian
