Depending on the model, there may be accessory close up/macro, telephoto and/or wide-angle lenses available. These add-on lenses can significantly expand your camera's capabilities.
These accessory lenses typically cost from about $50.00 to $150.00 or more. However, a few companies – like Kenko – manufacture accessory lenses for a number of different makes and models of camera, and these often sell for much less than the camera brand lenses.
If you're interested in taking advantage of the added capabilities of accessory lenses, check before you buy. Only some digital camera models are designed to take advantage of them.
