Hi fellas;

Can anyone please recommended a lens adapter for C730UZ? And best if you would give a approximate cost as well. And also just to clarify whether is it possible for me to add on lens so as to further enhance my optical zoom? Could some experts please kindly advise?

Alan photo should sell those 3rd party types. Should be less than $20. Yes of course its possible to add Teleconvertors to increase your optical zoom. But a good one is not easy to find. :)

And also upon installing the lens adapter will i be obstructing the digicam's lens? Cos the lens of C730UZ will extent when you power on. Thus if the lens Adapter is fixed on before powering on, will powering on later cause any problem? Sorry if i sounded stupid cause newbie at work. ;)

Just bring your cam down and tell the salesman you wanna get a lens adapter. Try on the spot to make sure it fits. Size-wise, i can't rem. No worries, they'll know wat to give you if there're stock.

The adapter is supposed to fit the extending lens as well, so no worries. And rem to get a UV filter with a size that fits the adapter. Its to protect the camera lens.

The original adapter will costs more, so if you wans to get one that is cheaper, get the 3rd party one. Dun worry, 3rd party ones are equally reliable. So far, have never heard one that actually gave way. ;)

Jeremy McCreary's web site is a source of much useful information for digital photography in general, with particular emphasis on Olympus digicams: http://www.cliffshade.com/dpfwiw/
