    I have a camera with a threading for 43mm adapters can I buy two that will
    join together to make 6x zoom.
    eg. 3x 43mm := first adapter : 3x 53mm.:= second adapter =6x.

    TOAK,

    What camera do you have? (Brand, Model)
    If it has removable lenses, what lens(es) are they?

    What are you trying to achieve? Making a distant subject appear closer?

    Are you thinking of those video attachments that s on your font of the
    lens to give you either a wide-angle or tele effect, in your case the later.
    I have a friend who has been around the various CC and bought up such beast
    so he could do just that on his HP digicam, but with only 2mp you can really
    get a good sharp image (no offence meant!) with two of these converters on,
    I mean it is bad enough if we on 35mm or greater Camera add a 2x extender.
    Anyway he used a stepup ring - I am sure if you ask at your local store they
    could help you out.

    anyway, for him it is a cheap way to get a bit more yield out of his camea -
    which by the way got stolen over the weekend :-(. It is probably worthless
    in a Cash Converter but it gave him a lot of fun.

    So to make a short story long, if you are after quality then NO, don't go
    down this way! but if it is just to make do, then why not.

    best regards

    Henrik

    I dont think it will work. If you want wider or zoom function you must buy
    an attachment for that purpose.
