- (July 10, 2004) I’ve had an Olympus C-750 Ultra Zoom Digital Camera for about 6 months, and purchased the Olympus TCON-17 (1.7x) Tele Conversion Lens about 2 months ago. The choice of the Olympus C-750 UZ (10x optical zoom) was made because the camera would be used for lots of sports action photography, and previous experience had revealed that without a strong zoom lens, it was difficult to get some of the shots I wanted. The 10x zoom on the C-750 has been sufficient much of the time, however, I began to get a feel for its limitations when taking some shots of wildlife. I was intrigued when I found out that I could push the magnification of my digital still camera to 17x with only a modest additional inv
- (July 28, 2004) Bought for Kodak 6490. This was on of the benefits to the kodak..add on lens. I wish these were 55mm instead of 58, then all my SLR lens would be available, but the fact you can add to this digital camera is great. The lens was first used to take a family reunion shot Works great. Lens and adapter both for 120.00. Not bad. Will next take picture at a baseball game. Wonderful experience to get new lens. Makes digital photography fun.
- (July 21, 2004) After experimenting with a few other 3rd party brands, this lens came out on top. It is by far the strongest lens that brings the telephoto side of the DSC-W1 to more than 7x optical. Which is a lot of zoon for a point and shoot compact digital camera. It also works on all other Cybershot series that have an attachment thread (Such as the P series and the W1.) So if ever you decide on changing for another Sony Digital (Cybershot), you can take these attachments with you. This lens (as other attachments)for the DSC-V1 and DSC-W1 have one major drawback which I didn't see anyone talk about during my PRE-Purchase research is that for DSC-V1 and DSC-W1, the flash is directly above the len
- (09/16/2013) I use the GP-E2 with my new Canon 70D Camera. It can be shoe-mounted, placed in a AB-E1 Bracket attached to the camera (and connected with an interface cord which is provided with the GP-E2), or worn in a pouch on your belt (and connected with a longer interface cable also provided with the GP-E2). I don't use all the features. I am mostly interested in tagging my photos with GPS location data. In my limited experience with the unit, I find it to be quite accurate. It is small, which I like very much. If I had a complaint, it would be that the pouch (for wearing the unit on a Belt) is a real tight fit.
- (09/16/2013) The product is useful to prevent flare, and to deflect semi-hard knocks. It is light, packs small,is inexpensive, and generally simple. It has two questionable issues: 1.It is not really sturdy enough for frequent mounting and dismunting; and 2.You need to be VERY careful to mount it properly. You have to be gentle, and be sure you have the lens flange tabs aligned wiith the shade cutout slots. If you try to screw it in, you will ruin the shade slots. Clear alignment dots would help a lot.
