ZS30 with Teleconverters

 


The ZS30 with the Olympus C180 Teleconverter

Using the adapter as described in the previous section, I tested the ZS30 with the Olympus C180 TC (power 1.7x) attached. 


Below is a shot of a parrot sculpture at maximum zoom (480mm equiv.) without the TC.  The full sized image can be viewed here.


ZS30 without TC, 480mm (equiv.), f/6.4, 1/10s, 100 ISO


Below is a shot from the same position, at maximum zoom with the C180 attached.  The full sized image can be viewed here.



ZS30 plus C180, 480mm (equiv.), f/6.4, 1/10s, 100 ISO


I think the IQ is good, and there is no vignetting.  At this distance (about 25ft or 8m), the magnification with the TC attached was calculated to be 1.61x, giving an optical focal length of 773mm (35mm equivalent).
