Telephoto lens for g9
I just got a telephoto lens for my G9 and when I zoom all the way out, I get a blurry picture, even with tc selected on converter, timer and tripod used. I see a clear picture on the LCD, but the picture comes out blurry. What am I doing wrong?..

Don't know if you've got "Image Stabilisation" on, but manual says:-.

"Converter Settings - Set up when shooting using the [IS Mode] by attaching theWide Converter WC-DC58B or Tele-converter TC-DC58C.".

Can understand "IS" being needed when using TC, but also seems to want it when using "WC" so could be worth checking..

As a matter of interest, do you only get blurring when zoomed fully out with TC or is it also there when at shorter zoom lengths with TC on?.

Sorry, if above doesn't work - all could then suggest is trying another one or getting money back!.

First of all, youre not supposed to zoom out. The tele-converter can only be used within a narrow range at the tele end of the camera. So the camera has to be zoomed in all the way or most of the way for the tele-converter to work property. If you want a smaller zoom, simply take the tele-converter off..

Also, which lens did you get? You cant simply put any ol tele-converter on a camera and have it work. Is it a real Canon TC-DC58C?.

It is important to set the Converter option to the correct converter that is installed, otherwise the IS system will not work correctly. But if you are installing anything other than a lens listed in the Converter options, then you must turn the IS system off..

When you use a tripod you can turn the IS system off if you like. However, tests on Canon P&S cameras show that it doesnt matter. You can leave it on and it wont affect the image. BTW this has nothing to do with the tele-converter...its just a tip..

Good luck!..

Not necessarily. The add-on teleconverters that are sold by the camera manufacturer are often very high quality optics and often command similarly high prices..

Now if the OP bought an inexpensive off-brand optic, then that is probably why he is getting poor results..

You may need to use a narrower aperture to get proper focus. Some experimentation will give you an idea what the minumum aperture (f number) should always be at any given focal length when using the teleconverter, to get a sharp photo..

It's the same way with my 50-500 mm lens. While it is suppossedly a 6.3 lens at 500 mm, without stopping down to at least f9, I get a blurry photo. It may look fine on the LCD screen with larger apertures but this can be a deceptive view of how blurry a photo may be when viewed on your computer monitor. Zooming in on the LCD screen view will tell the real story..

I'm thinking that you both mean the same thing and are just using a different perspective of the term. While we do usually desribe it as zooming 'in' to get a closer view, the lens is physically zooming 'out', increasing in length...
