How the telephoto lens works on the C2000z.
Or for that matter a wide angle lens? Since the camera has zoom capability
does it still have that same capability or do you have to push it to the telephoto
end of the camera and then add the lens for additional telephote? Or do you get
additionl magnification across the spectrum of the lens?

Re: How does a telephote lens work on the C2000Z???
You must have the lens extended all the way or you get a halo effect as if your taking the picture through a tube. This might be interesting in some instances. I have the 1.4x for my 2000z and it works very well although it is a little cumbersome.

Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoom up to the bird to the point where you have it nicely framed with none of its parts outside of the frame. Capture the whole image.
Wide angle lens is mainly used for scenery or where you want to take a group photo or panorama.
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.
There are lenses available to add with an adapter ring. I have the wide angle lens (which I LOVE) and a 2x telephoto lens. The wide angle lens allows me to macro from several feet away. It is an amazing lens. The telephoto lens is something you really need to use with a tripod. But yes, there are lenses you can add to your camera.
Hey needacamera, The range of an optical zoom lens refers to how wide angle to telephoto the lens covers. An example of a 6x optical zoom would be an 18mm-108mm lens, which covers wide angle to telephoto. An example of a 3x zoom lens would be an 18mm-54mm lens, which would provide a capability of capturing images from wide angle to normal views. To calculate the x factor of an optical zoom you would divide the largest number by the smallest number on your zoom. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
With the telephote lens, I am assuming that the camera is a bit more sensitive to any form of camera shake. My suggestion, when using the telephoto lens, is to manually set the shutter speed to its fastest setting (that, or set it to "sports mode"). Also, experiment with the telephote lens using your tripod. Set the camera up on a table and use the timer so that the camera will snap the image automatically. See if the picture is still blurry. If you don't have a tripod, just place it flat on the table.
That's completely normal for those cheap wide angle add on lenses. There good for a little fun but nothing serious. I bought the lens kit for the Kodak DC3400, probably the exact same lens.
The telephoto in that kit was actually pretty reasonable though.
I would be concerned. First, the C2000Z is a very precision device. It came with a 41mm lens cap. If the extended lens bothers you, get the CLA-1 adapter, and cap it with a 43mm lens cap. I personally would not buy a demo digital camera. It goes thru too many funky and un-caring hands, if you catch my drift. Lastly, go to the Olympus web site and download the latest software. Hope you make the right choice; as most times you still "get what you pay for".
