Lens Adapter for Sony DSC-P92

I am looking for one of the Sony VAD-PEA adapter for my DCS-P92. Sony has discontinued the adapter and I cannot find it anywhere. Please help if you can.

I am also looking for one of the Sony VAD-PEA adapter for my camera. If anyone has a source for obtaining one please send me that info via email. Thanks!

Add me to the list looking for a VAD-PEA adapter.

Ordered one from CDW, and it's on "backorder". They tell me that they expect it in within the week, which I doubt since Sony has discontinued. If I get it, I'll let you both know.

It's pretty sad that Sony has already stopped supporting a camera that I bought only a year and a half ago. I got the telephoto lens for Christmas, and it's completely worthless without the adapter. Now the store won't even take the lens a back because of their return policy. Sony will be hearing from me on this.

I am trying desperately to locate the Sony VAD-PEA lens adapter without success: apparently it's been discontinued! But I purchased a teleconverter lens for my DSC-P92 camera without realising I need this specific lens adapter to attach it! Is there anyone out there who can help this gal out?? Perhaps there are some alternative solutions? Many thanks. Jackie in the UK

Try your local photography shops. I have heard that some users have luck with them. You can also cut and glue a PVC tube to your camera to use as an adapter.

Hi folks,

I know how hard it is to find the VAD PEA adaptor, been there myself. Just to let you know, there's one on auction at ebay.co.uk at the moment. This is where I ended up sourcing one from.

Hope this helps!!!

Hi just to let others know out there, there is a vad pea adapter for sale on ebay. This is where I ended up sourcing mine.

Thanks, wee! They look quite interesting (photo attached). I guess they are made by third-party. They are a little pricey as well . . . but at least there is now a lens adapter source for older Sony digital cameras.

If the VAD PEA is the main subject then that subheading is basically "nearly impossible to find". I would check ebay regularly.

Peed off

I purchased a Sony DSC-P72 a little over a year ago & now I am unable to purchase the lens adaptor. I feel that Sony has a lot to answer for,in bringing out a digital camera (worth $500)& not providing adequate accessories to compliment their product.When we purchased the camera we were told by the sales person, that there were accessories that could be purchased at a later date.

Any idea if the adapters you showed (that appear to have the functionality of the VAD-PEA, and would fit a DSC-P72 camera) are available anywhere?

I think it will work. But they are probably impossible to find now, as the market for them is gone. If you don't mind modifying your camera, you can make a lens adapter out of PVC tube and glue it to your camera (as described in the "Hacking Digital Cameras" book).

Many thanks Chieh for your gracious follow-up--really appreciate your taking the time. Where might I find the "Hacking Digital Cameras" book?

Hi
I found a VAD-PEA adapter on EBay. I bought it from a fellow in China. His Seller name is internet-time. It cost me 23.00 American + 20.00 for shipping to Canada. You might want to try this guy.
