    Hello to this forum, I just registered to it (after some read-only sessions earlier).

    Few weeks ago I bought the DX-2G camera (after using for the last 13 years
    the Motormarine-IIEX with the last dive with it - just a month ago).
    The DX-2G purchase was of the "Pro package", with everything.
    For the last few weeks I'm reading the manual and experimenting with the
    camera and the strobe (YS-110a) on the table (and also making a protective
    cover for the strobe-end of the fiber optics strobe sync cable which also
    serves as easy-attachement/removal diffuser). Today I attempted to use the
    wide angle conversion lens. I already changed the settings of conversion lens
    to treat attached lens as a wide angle lens. According to the manual, when
    the lens is attached (or when the camera is turned on with the wide lens attached)
    there should be an indication that a wide angle lens is attached. But I don't see anything
    being displayed. What am I missing? Should the camera be in a specific mode (I didn't
    see anything about it in the manual but maybe I missed, after all, there are 254 pages)?
    I attached the wide angle lens in "auto" and "A" modes, no indication in either of them.

    Does the conversion lens detection mechanism works also on land or only in the
    water? How the camera detects that a conversion lens had been attached?

    Thanks in advance for any help,
    A_kaza.

    HI-
    The w/a conversion lens the DX-2G camera manual refers to is a Ricoh accessory product and meant for use on land only. It is not referring to the DX-2G housing wide-angle lens for use underwater. The camera settings do not need to be adjusted for use with the housing wide-angle lens.
