Raynox 6600PRO 43mm

Its a little smaller, but does that make enough difference?

Decision time

I think I'm going for the Raynox 6600Pro

I'll need a stepup ring to go from 37mm to 43mm

Final question:
Should I get my filter set (UV, POL, 81A) to fit the 72mm of the front of the lens or 37mm or 43mm?

Get the 72mm filters with step up rings for the 37mm lens. That way you can use the same filters with or without the wide angle lens.

Optura 20 capture

I'm trying to connect an Optura 20 to my PC and use Vegas 6 to capture, however, when I connect it, the camera via firewire, Windows make the *bing* recognize noise, but when the window asking what I want to do with the device comes up, there are no options in the window. Also, when I go to Vegas to capture, it says there is no device connected. I don't know what the issue is. I do not believe that it is the cable, since it connects to Windows. I need some help QUICKLY, time is short. Thanks.

Is the camera in VCR/Playback mode?

I am running Winddows XP Pro, Home, and Media Cennter on 3 different PC's and my Optura 10 works fine for capturing. I have captured directly to Windows Media Encoder 9, Movie Maker 2, and Adobe Premier. Here is my suggestion:

1. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer.
2. Install the drivers for the camera 1st
3. Connect the camera (make sure it is ON and in PLAYBACK mode)
4. Hopefully Windows will recognize it, associate the just-installed drivers with it, and work perfectly.

I lost my original CD so I downloaed the drive from Canon and it worked fine on all 3 PC's.
