Welcome to Pixalo Tigerbarb

You cannot change lenses on the Fuji s9600. The built-in lens will cover a range of about 28mm to 300mm.

You could buy lenses that fit onto the end of the existing lens, sometimes called close up and telephoto filters, but I don't think it is worth it on this camera as the standard lens will do pretty much everything you will want.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

Back in the days when the Queen was a lad, I used an Olympus Tcon-17 (1.7 x) on my fuji 602 (the grandaddy of your s9600) which was thought to be the best conversion lens for the fuji's at the time.
That would give a top range of 510mm but it was heavy and needed an adapter tube. I got some good results but vignetting could be a problem and focus was not always 100%.
To be honest, these days I would be more tempted just to use the camera as is and crop to get the shot you want.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

The reason why they say that you cannot use a flash with this lens is probably due to the angle of view. If the lens has a wider angle of view than the flash the lighting will be uneven and chances are that the auto metering system will not work properly. Also you will find that the lens will cast a shadow across your subjects. I find this happening even with lenses that are not very wide angle.

You will most likely find that even the standard lens will suffer from this when using the wide end of the lens and the built-in flash or a flash mounted on the camera.

If the converter lens has no fittings fo filters you might be able to use a filter between the camera lens and your wide converter lens, but you will get vignetting causing the corners of the image to be either darkened or cut off.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

Hi tigerbard, from my experience with fuji I could use the onboard flash fine with converion lenses but to do that (if I remember right) there is an option in the camera menu to tell the camera you are using one and it will compensate to allow the flash to be used properly (please remember I'm going back several cameras and manufacturers plus quite a few years so I'm not 100% on that, but fairly sure, I'd put money on it put it like that).
The converion lenses wont offer better DOF, what you may be thinking about is that some conversion lenses reduce the ammount of light getting through by a few stops but not add to DOF (Depth of Field), the T-con 17 I mentioned did not do that but the offset point there was it was a "physicaly" wide lense thus heavy. As a reference point on landscapes a sweet area is about f8 (+/)-with a wide angle so you will be fine.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

Hi Feeson
I take it that the f8 (+/) with the wide angle lens is a manual setting and not auto ?,would the lens on auto setting do any damage to the camera over a short or long period as it has a lot more wait to move the lens in and out .

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

I guess you are thinking about crashing the body lens into the bottom of the conversion lens. With my fuji it was mounted on a tube that slipped over the body lens, I think yours will be on the filter thread of the actual lens, is that right? As long as its designed for the fuji you should be fine at any setting.
And the f8 part, yes chose to set the aperture manualy to get that or whatever f stop suits your needs for the shot. You will find, as time goes on, that you will want to move away from full auto anyway and have control yourself over shutter speed/fstop/iso.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

Okay, take that filter off until you need it, thats a polarizing filter and only used when you want the effect. If you keep it on all the time you lose a few stops. Handy for shooting through glass, cutting reflections and making the sky a nice blue. I sometimes cheat and use one as a neutral density filter when I want to make my exposure time a bit longer and cant be bothered digging out the proper filter

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

I dont really know that one being honest, I guess its to give a centre subject surrounded by 3 repeats. But there is the problem of size, you would need a step down adapter ring 58-55mm and that would cause vignetting on your image.
Its an effect you can get by using photoshop or similar edditing packages.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

You can use any filters on your camera provided they are the correct size. Square Cokin filters need a filter holder with an adaptor to fit your lens.

Cokin P series filters are, I think, big enough to be used with the wide angles that your camera lens has, but if you can use the A series ones (if they are big enough to use with your lens) they are cheaper.

Re: Good lens for fujifilm finepix

The A and P size filter holders can both be fitted with an adaptor to fit your lens - or you can get one adaptor and change it from one to the other as needed (if it will fit both) I'd get two for convenience though. You will have to check to see if the P size will accept the 58mm adaptor or if you will need a step-down ring to bridge between the lens and the filter holder adaptor.

If your lens has a 58m filter thread, this is the size for the adaptor too, but the P size filters are quite big, so there might not be a 58mm one to fit the P filter holder without an additional ring.
