Hi ,

I have a conon A95, which is a good camera but with a meaky 3X optical. I need big zoom capability. I've read that you can attach lense to this camera. Does attaching lens increases the zooming capability of A95? Which type/make of lens i should buy. In short i need to expand my A95 for 10X optical zoom. If this can be done then which is the best lens to buy along with all necessary acceories.Does image stabilization be a factor after attaching the lens.

or is it a good idea in first place to attach lense rather than buying anew camera altogether.

The Canon A95 can't give u 10x zoom without you using digital zoom. What I mean is that even with a teleconverter, you will get a max of about 6x optical zoom.

Besides, personally I wouldn't necessarly suggest that since its not as good as the lens and its sort of bulky to carry. If you don't use a tripod, you will need to use a faster shutter speed since it has no Image stabilization.

All in all, I'd say either you stick with what you've got or you go for a bigger zoom camera, but make sure u think about howmuch u'd user the 7-10x of the ultrazoom.

You may consider the CrystalVue SharpShooter 8X, the 37mm thread version. To use it, you will also need a 37mm adapter tube. But, you should not expect the image quality of the on-camera lens. See the Odd Stuffs/Converter Lenses section of my Nikon Coolpix 4500 user guide for more details about these monoscope lenses. In fact, you can use virtually all Nikon converter lenses, from fisheye to excellent 3X,on your A95.

See this thread of discussion http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...mp;forum_id=15and trace back. Then, you will find more information about adapter tubes.
