you can get the adapter/hood combo on ebay or at lensmate.com. You can also buy the original canon one at most camera stores. The original combo is around $30, but the ones on ebay are around $17usd.


This is what the quality looks like w/3.5 tele. mind you I just pointed it out the window in P mode, 50 ISO w/ no tinkering pre/post. (aside from 25% resize)I'm gonna give it another try with better subject, as I think shallow DOF/ camera weight/flimsy tripod, may have added to the dreaded results.

That is not such a bad price if a person can get a fairly decent tele to put on it. I used to use a 10X monocular at one time on my Nikon 990. It never really produced what we would call great quality results. It was a lot of fun though to see what can be done. I will look forward to seeing your other samples. Maybe if you have time, you could show one aside the other comparing the 10X with the 3.5 added next to it.

I actually did that when I shot the photo above. I tried to post them both, but only one gets posted??

Anyhoo, this is from the exact same spot at 10x.

Ill post more later with better subjects...

I was wondering what it'd take to make a couple lenses:

1 - a telescoping super telephoto lens
aperture is 24" wide, effective of F/16 or so.
telescoping so that the lens can be compacted down to no more than 6 feet long (or, including the camera and adaptor, 6 feet 6 inches or so)
I wonder how long of a focal length could be had with a baby like that..

also, a super macro lens - not really sure of the specs on this one, but I want to fill the frame with the heads of insects, for example.

Also, a redirection lens, so I can point the front of my lens one direction and take a picture of something else, off to the side, for example.

Any ideas on how to do things like that?
