Hi there,

I have asked a friend living in Malaysia to get me a Canon A610 (I live in Kuwait) as the prices here are outrageously high ... almost by 33%!

Last night, I found that Sony was clearing up old stock and they had a couple of lenses/ flashes (slave) that were going pretty cheap by Kuwait standards. I was thereore wondering if the tele/wide lenses of the sony would fit the Canon A610.

The lenses on sale and their specs as per the net are as follows!

a) Sony VCL-ES20
2x Universal Teleconversion lens

Features 2.0x telephoto converter for Sony 30 mm, 37 mm and 52 mm diameter lenses Helps make distant subjects appear closer Includes: -2.0X telephoto lens -Carrying Pouch -2 Lens Caps (For the front and rear of the lens) -3 Mount Ring Adapters (For 30mm, 37mm, 52mm)

c) HVL-FSL1B Cyber-shot® Slave Flash with BracketHVL-FSL1B

DSC-P73/ 93/ 100/ 150/ 200
DSC-S60/ 70/ 75/ 85/ 90
DSC-V1/ V3
DSC-W1/ W5/ W7

I'm particularly interested in the Tele converter lens and the flash... the first because I understand that the Stitch function does assist a lil in covering up the requirement for a wide angle lens.

Basically my knowledge of cameras and photgraphy is ZERO and any little knowledge I've got has been acquired through forum readings for a YEAR in search of an ideal camera!

One other thing, there were these tripods for sale as well, the ones which are remote powered by a long cable .... could I use that to snap pictures of the canon as well or are they just restricted for use with Sony Handycams?

Will really appreciate any form of assistance!

Thanks & Cheers!
