Hi

I have a CasioExilim EX-Z750. My question is, does it support the use of wide angle and tele converters?

I am interested in extending the zoom factor of the camera, it is sometimes useful to be able to zoom in more than the standard 3x.

I know that for example the Casio EX-P600/700 comes with optional converters asit uses a Canon lens, how about the Z750?

I've been looking for the same thing. I found this new setup by Cokin:

but I haven't found it available yet anywhere. I may try to make my own using filters and lenses that I already have with some sort of rigged up adapter tube. The Z750 is great in many ways, but I'd love to get closer in macro and have more zoom.

If I run across any solutions, I'll be sure to post back.

I found these items, but it seems that they are mostly unavailable or very costly:

and 9th item down... but I can't find it when I click on the website of the manufacturer

found it elsewhere, but seems pricey

Impressive! Very nice! Thank you indeed for doing the "research". I'll buy something like that myself.
