Default Teleconverter for Sony CD400?

I missed a great photo opportunity the other day. I was outside with my camera when several hummingbirds came around. They hovered within 5-6 feet of me for several minutes. I took several photos of them at full (3X) optical zoom on my Sony CD400, but they still appeared distant.
I wish I had been able to zoom in closer for a better picture, so now I'm looking for a good 2X or so teleconverter. I've seen mention of several brands, but no specific mention of the best one for my camera (the CD400). Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
Thanks!!

Kenko makes this 3x teleconverter.

Not sure which adapter tube you are using, but it comes with adapter rings.

Question about that...

My canon has an adapter ring for 52mm, does that mean I could use that lens for the camera??

Yes, it does. But before jumping at the often spoken of Kenko, you might want to check around and look into others such as Tiffen or Raynox. Go to http://www.bugeyedigital.com/for a real educational experience in WA and Tele lenses. You will also find this site extremely informative

www.raynox.com Check their English site and then look at the left side of their menu page for your camera.

Enjoy, I sure did. By the way, when you speak of a 52mm, I trust you mean the receiving end where your filter or lenses would be attached to, and not the end that goes into your camera body. I say this because it is important to know what the size of your screw in size is on the camera.
