I don't understand this. You attached the crystalvue thingie and got a 10x optical zoom? S1 already has 10x zoom. What am I missing?

Or does sharpshooter offer MORE magnification? 8x or what?

Can you post a picture of the S1 with the thing attached, plz? Is that possible?

the sharpshooter gives additional 8X magnification, giving a total of 80X with the S1's 10X; so the effective focal length is 80x38=3040mm, according to 35mm standards; a composite picture of the S1, the adapter and the spotterscope is attached ( S1 picture from this site, added to the picture of the adapter+scope taken with my S1 (a lot of work in Photoshop, CorelDraw); had to do it this way since I have only one camera and the S1 can't photograph itself!!!!!!!!!

wow, mama. That's incredible. 80x zoom?!

Yeah, judging by the size of that thing, it's not something one would take for a leisurely walk in the park.. goddamn..

I think you just got nominated into the Paparazzi club, except you will be stalking planets and satellites rather than humans :|

Pardon me if I go a little off-topic, the telephoto is great but I am also drooling over the macro shots which S1 seems incapable of. :sad:

I came across some really great macro shots here:

http://www.stevesforums.com/forums/v...=11&page=1

Apparently these great shots were taken using DSLR cameras with Sigma 105 Macro lense...

My question is, can we use any marco lense on Canon Powershot S1? Has anyone tried?

I asked ckc for the 8X32 and they said:

"The 8x32 will vignette too much with the S1. The LX lens
would have a better chance but I still think it will
vignette some with the LX as well. I wish I had better
news for you.":sad:

so non tele? is that bad?
