I am confident I am missing something, so please fill me in. If you put a 2x converter on your 3800 doesn't the camera just measure the exposure based on the amount of light coming through the lens like always. What needs to be made to work. I am not a digital camera expert. Do most of them measure exposure through the lens? Like I say, I must be missing something.

What did you figure out, I'd like to know.
I, too, have a 3800 and a 2X teleconverter.
I thought you just attach the teleconverter and it doubles your focal length, making telephotography possible.
Are there any special settings or adjustment, or am I missing somehing?

I just tok a pic of one thing without the lens at full zoom and one with a lens at full zoom also, and saw the difference.

When I use my 2x teleconverter on my camera I firstly attach it to the camera and then in the setup menu I change the option 'set adapter ring' from 'no' to 'yes'. That's all.

My camera is the Finepix S602 zoom. Maybe it works with your camera the same, lotus999.

Default Using "3rd party" aftermarket converters

If you use a teleconverter which was not made for a specific camera, there is the chance that it may not "couple" to the prime lens properly. This is due to several factors, such as optical design differences and the distance from the front element of the prime lens to the rear element of the converter. An adapter ring complicates this a bit by adding a few mm of additional distance between the lenses. However, there are times when even more distance is needed. These factors may result in:
a) the camera being unable to focus at either infinity or the closest distance it normally can;
b) the center and edges of the picture may not be in focus simultaneously;
c) there may be color fringing;
d) the pictures may be less sharp overall;
e) there may be vignetting ( black at the corners) at wide (or all)apertures.
