Default Which Adapter for FZ35?

Folks, just got the LC55 close up lens for my FZ35 for Christmas. Which lens adapter model do I need to get?

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Yes, DMW LA-3 (not the LA-5). On the back of your user manual, there is a section called "connecting to other equipment", and there is a section on attaching conversion lenses.

Let us know of your success (or failure) with the LA3 and LC55. I bought these two items mid-year, and never got one good shot with the combination. They are sitting here, and soon to get trashed unless I learn something different.

My best luck with this combo is:
1. P mode
2. ISO 100
3. Keep about 12 - 18 inches from subject
4. Zoom as much as your AF allows
5. Spot Focus mode
6. Not necessary to put in Conversion Lens mode, simply zoom past the vignette
7. And most importantly, bright sunny day

Thanks Saly for sharing your settings. I really enjoy seeing what you can do with the LC55. Come spring I'm going to give one a try.

jj, the Canon d500 is as good if you can't a LC55, remember LZT's wonderful posts

G'day all

Roger ~ sorry to hear about your difficulties .... keep trying
Saly ~ your 7-step guide is great ESP item #3

With our FZ28/35 cameras, we usually preset zoom to about 8x - 10x first, then +/- the zoom to fill the frame. Tripod working certainly goes best, but as you say in #7, a sunny day will give good s'speeds too

Thanks again
Regards, Phil

Hi Square One. I just think the d500 has too shallow of a DOF and the LC55 would be easier to use.
