New Sony 1.7x Teleconverter

Sat Oct 26, 2002 10:58 am

Greetings!

I got the new Sony 1.7x Teleconverter for my new F707 and here is a sample of what it can do. This pic was full zoom at 323mm

Steve, how much of the zoom range can you use? Do you see vignetting at - for example - 50% zoom (~160mm)?

And yep! the link leads to the middle of nowhere. Either the pic has been rejected or accepted.

The link isnt there.. I would like to see it, I think I'm going to new that one or the Olympus B-300 if I can find one at Ebay.

Also, LOT767-300, do you have MSN or something to contact, I wolud like to ask what setting do you use for take your photos with the F707.

Do you use 2560x as size and then resize to 1024x? Do you use ISO 100 always? Put some Sharp direct from the camera?? I'm asking because I'm have few problems with the settings.

Take care,

That looks sharp in the hazy weather and its far away. I can see this thing work on good weather.

That one works just fine, I don't know what the problem is. Restart your computer, and possibly restart your connection.

Think it was a problem with my ISP - other web sites wouldn't load too.

See it now, looks very interesting. Keep us informed please about how you get on with it Steve.

I hope to hit SJC next Saturday, weather permitting and spend most of the morning there and see what I get.
