Hi all:

What do you think about Z740? I am currently using the DX6490.
I kind of like the 50X Zoom on Z740. If you have it ready, could
you please share with us. Thank you very much. :)

Digital zoom is a waste of space in my opinion, you have the equivalent of 380mm at full zoom with the 6490, buy a lens adapter and a Olympus TCON-17 and that will get you up to 17x.


If you want more, a Raynox DCR-2020 Pro might be what your after, but I haven't used one, so tread carefully.

The lens adapter is available from Kodak, that will give you the option to add lenses or filters.(You need the 55mm version, not the 52mm Ebay version)

The TCON-17 is an Olympus add on lens that can be found on the auction site for around $100, the Raynox is almost double that.

If you don't use Ebay, a Google search should show you where to find them.
