Someone reco a digital camera forum?

not exactly related to Seven ... but since this crowd is the 'devil I know' I thought I'd ask directions here.
I need a digital camera forum... I have questions about a couple of cameras and can't easily find good answers by web searching. I sure tried

Who are the manufacturers of the cameras? Many, but not all, of the manufacturers have their own forums.

What are the specific model numbers of your cameras? Have you tried Googling with that as a search term to see what comes back? Also, use the same information as a search term in the forums I suggested.

yes I have, quite a few differing searches, substituting a term here and there. DMC-FZ8 and DMC-fZ18
I have a TZ10 also but I plan to ebay it as soon as I get the oddball usb cable for it and upgrade the firmware. [different issue... what IS that type usb connector called?].
The wife and I are both pretty much noobs at the accessories. I don't understand what adapter rings/tubes to go for, and having done so, what size/type telephoto lens would be a good 'starter'. I have tripods and such... that part is easy. I gather that there are some lens dimensions/sizes for which there is a much better supply of choices. also confused about which adapter in terms of the threading: external, internal, both, etc. sorry I can't explain better...

nawwww.... all the dmc-fz# models take a variety of attachments.
I got some better clarity from studying the Raynox offerings yesterday:
Raynox conversion lens and accessories for Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ28, DMC-FZ28EB, DMC-FZ18, DMC-FZ18EB Digital Cameras
and there's this:
DMW-LMC46 MC Multi Coated Protector Filter DMWLMC46

I asked a question about that one and am told it screws directly on, no adapter needed.

I think I picked up on a key term I did not previously recognize but I'll frame it as a question: do the makers of these devices use the term "conversion" in the descript to indicate that the device changes the size of the receiver? that is, a "conversion adapter" or ring takes the device from the default 55mm or 58mm [which is it??? that's part of the issue] to something other... from 55 to 58 or 63. I also noticed that some of the lenses are actually kits that screw on a succession of filters? inline between the stock barrel and the actual lens [and I haven't a foggy clue what those are there for.]
