While trolling around eBay, I stumbled across this extension tube for about $10 USD delivered from Hong Kong which attaches to the screw mount on my Nikon P6000:
The build quality and finish of the tube is almost a perfect match to the P6000. Nikon sells a similar tube (for around $40 CDN) which has a 43mm thread on the end which is meant to connect to their own $189 CDN wide angle lens attachment. As much as I love my P6000, I just couldn’t imagine paying that much for a few more millimeters of wide angle view (pretty much half of what I paid for the camera). It already has a 24mm wide lens which is pretty decent for a point and shoot camera.
I already had a 0.42x fisheye/wideangle/macro lens that comes with a number of step up rings including a fairly standard 52mm one. I figured if I can get an extension tube for the P6000 that connects to that standard size, my existing fisheye lens (bought for $37 from ebay) could be a nice, cheap alternative to the Nikon solution not to mention giving me the ability to use other filters that I already own on the camera.
Here’s some sample photos taken with the lens attached:
Here’s a little video demonstrating the effect of the lens on the camera:
So take a $10 tube and a $37 fisheye and you end up with a decent little mod for the P6000 for about $47 total.
