So, what is a Teleconverter aka Extender?

A teleconverter is a lens you place between your camera body and your usual lens. The teleconverter will increase the effective focal length. So a 70-200mm lens becomes a 140-400mm lens if you are using a 2x extender. Question 2 - YES the teleconverter and extender are terms meaning the same thing. Please note that some lenses are not able to take a teleconverter and that using one affects the slowest "f Stop" of the lens.

Note that not all camera lenses will take a teleconverter so be sure to check the compatibility.
