Teleconverter (English sec. TS) is an additional optical system, which is fixed between the camera body and the main lens.

For example, for a telephoto lens with a focal length of 300 mm f / 2.8, a 2.0x teleconverter will double the focal length and reduce the maximum aperture by two full feet, resulting in a focal length of 600 mm f / 5.6.
