Very Artistic Fred, GGreat Shots one and all. The FX01 brings out the best in you. Would the FX01 be a good low light camera? I'm back to trying to find a inexpensive camera for low light action shots (High School basketball shots) for example. I understand that the F30 is probably the best right nowbut is a little expensive, no more than I would need it..

Very nice, Fred. Using your idea, I went to the local hardware and found 2" rubber plumers cap. Using an exacto knife, cut a hole in cap to fit over the FX01 lens. Then using an adapter for the TCON 1.7, this is what I came up with.
Good for you, Jerry! What doesthe outside depth of the cap measure? 3/4"? How about the outside diameter of the step-ring the tcon17 is screwed into? I'll pick up one of those the next time I'm at one of those places, which is frequently. My first real job (46 years ago!) wasworking ina hardware store. I love hardware stores and being curious and finding stuff and my wife says we gotta clean this stuff up .... trash day is coming.!

Fred, the outside depth is 1" and the inside is 7/8". The inside diameter is approx. 2 7/16". The stepup ring is 55 to 62mm 'C' ring that I ordered from Lovelife with the WCON 07.

Rear view of cap with approx 1 3/8" hole. Snug fit but not too much so, I don't have to force it over the lens.

Hi Fred

When I saw the title to the post, I thought I'd misread it and then was wondering how you could conect a TC to teh FX01 but you'd done it - and the results are superb ! Now thats what i call using your brain !! Jerry's use of the TCON17 look pretty good as well - I'm amazed how well teh TC is working with teh fx01.


Amazing stuff dudes !!

Cheers
