The following listing for E-Bay stores have adapters that will fit Kodak Z1012, Z812, Z8612, Z712, Z612 cameras.

All links I am posting are from international E-Bay stores.

Don't pick the item that has the cheapest listed price. Check them all out and add the item cost and the shipping cost together to get the total final price. Some stores are notorious for charging exorbitant shipping costs. Be careful!

Adapters available:
(some stores only have one size in stock)
49mm to 58mm adapter
49mm to 62mm adapter
49mm to 67mm adapter

You can buy step-up & step-down rings to fit most lenses and filters that are other sizes.

I see this thread is a bit old, but I found something that might be useful:

Under $10, you can't really go wrong. If you scroll down a bit to "Frequently Bought Together" there are macro and telephoto lenses designed for this, and from what the reviews say they seem pretty good.

Hopefully this is helpful!

Default Kodak newbie!

I am new to the group and a new owner of a Kodak Z1012 IS Camera.
To be honest... I am new to camera's too!! LOL
I bought this camera to take shots of my grandkids, dogs, and dog shows. The problem I have is that the camera takes so long to process each pic that my next shot is long gone by then. Any suggestions on how to fix this or should I buy a new camera all together? I found an additional lens with tube (2x 52mm) on ebay for less than $40..... is that a good deal and would it allow me to take better close ups?
Thanks for any and all advice!!

fonda-

Welcome to the Forum. We're delighted that you dropped by.

Try using the "P" for Programed Auto mode rather than the little red camera, which is Easy Shot. The "P" Mode is a good deal faster and that should speed things up for you.

Have a great day.

I know I don't have many posts here, so I hope to not sound like a know-it-all. I'm trying to stop by more often and hope to contribute when I can.

This is good advice. Using the Auto mode automatically applies "Perfect Touch" processing to the picture (I believe), and thus slows down the performance. As Sarah suggested, trying using "P" mode. Just select an appropriate ISO, and shoot away. If you're not familiar with ISO settings, use lower values for bright images or for the cleanest possible dark images (which results in longer shutter speeds, so use a tripod) and use higher values for darker images or fast action. Pay attention to what aperture (fstop) and shutter speed the camera uses when you take a shot. It will get you more familiar with camera settings for various scenarios.

By they way, what lens did you find? If it's a telephoto converter, be aware that some (I don't know about all of them) produce a horrible image. I just recently got the Opteka lens. I knew I was taking my chances with it. To put it this way, I'll never take it out again. On the other hand, I have close up filters and a X10 macro lens converter from the same company, and I'm very happy with the results I get...considering what it is.

Happy shooting!

It is always re-assuring to have another person validate your information.

Have a great day.

Default z712 filter tube

Hi everyone, just joined up. I just decided to put my DX6490 out to pasture as I wanted some more resolution so I bought a used Z712 off eBay and I just started playing with it. On my 6490 I put the extension tube on it with a UV and Polarizer filter and left it on permanently so I could do away with the lens cap nonsense. I'd like to do the same with the Z712, but I noticed in many forums on the subject here that at wide angle (38mm) settings vignetting is severe. I was curious if anyone has found a product that solved this or a combination of tubes and adapters that made this work. I found a 49mm to 67mm adapter for the Z1012 that would fit but I'm not sure if this would cure the vignetting or fit my Cokin filter adapter.

Thanks for any insight.

P.S. One of the reasons I decided to get a new camera was on my last trip to the George Eastman House I saw my camera in one of the museum cases; didn't make me feel on the cutting edge.

flipfriddle-

Most lens adapters seem to create a certain amount of vignetting. The one I have on my Z-1012 does and that is 49mm to 58mm. Perhaps the 49mm to 67mm is enough, but you will never know until you try it for sure. I would think that it should be enough as with 58mm at full wide angle (38mm) I only see a small amount of vignetting.

Ok, Heres my problem. I have a ZEIKOS 3.5X 58mm telephoto lens. It came with a 49mm-58mm adapter tube thats about 2" Base to front. This does enable me to connect the lens to the camera BUT with the camera zoomed all the way back (out) there is just a small circle that I can see. I can not find a simple 49mm-58mm step up ring that has threads deep enough to screw into the camera, (needs to be 1/4" at least). The adapter tube screws in perfectly and has 1/4" threads on the 49mm side. How can I get this set up to work or do I need some other tube/ring? Thanks for any help and, yes, I've looked at most of the replys in this thread but dont understand what was mentioned about 49-58 vs a 49-67 tube. Other than the size of the telephoto that can screw into it.
