I spoke to a retailer who had the B-300 in stock. He felt it was designed for film cameras and didn't know if it would work on digital cameras.

I did buy my B-300 for my IS-1000 35mm 3x zoom film camera - and I have used it ever since with a succession of digital cameras. I currently use it with my Olympus SZ-30MR.

The adaptor is a CLA-4 (for the C-750UZ) modified to press-fit on the SZ-30MR lens flange.

This is a moon shot taken with my SZ-30MR with the adapted B-300 1.7x tele-converter.
