Buy a 58mm to 52mm step down ring. They're readily available on eBay.

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?


I'm afraid this will not work.
The filter size from the Nikon is 67 mm. and your vivvitar had a 52 mm tread. The step down convertor from 67 to 52 will block to much to use the wide-angle convertor.
I think you still will see a wider part in the centre of the frame, but in the end, the vignetting that takes place, will leave you with only a part of the picture to use. What stays will be smaller than what you pick up with the lens in the 18 mm setting.

Just try what you see, when you just hold the vivitar in front of the lens and shoot a picture. Take care you don't scratch the front lens of your 18-135. put a cheap UV filter, when you want to test.
See you only have a circular picture with this test.

I have a 12-24 lens and only use it once a year, so if you don't have a special purpose for a wide angle, don't bother buying one.

Will a mercury optic .45x 58 mm wide angle lens fit on a canon camera?


It will fit onto any lens with a 58mm filter thread. It can also be used on lenses with different size filter thread with the appropriate step-up/down adapter.

Need to convert a Vivitar 70-150mm telephoto from Canon TX to Nikon FTn mounts


Vivitar made several different 70-150mm lenses. If the lens has a T-mount then you can purchase a Nikon T-mount adapter and replace the Canon one on the lens. If the lens does not have a T-mount then you're out of luck. Nikon cameras have thicker bodies than Canon cameras, and an adapter would have to have negative physical size.

Polarizing filter for fujifilm FinePix digital camera A210


I'm not sure you can use a round filter that fits into the mouth of your lens. The manual does not say anything about thread size. But there should always fit a P type filter set. Kood has "cheap" sets. There are a lot of Chinese firms that are in this market. There are lots of other brands and it could be you can buy a filter and holder paying more than your camera is worth. A P-type adapter ring from KOOD is less than $10, and a filter from $30 (46 mm) till almost $100 for 86 MM.
Only if you are making lots of pictures in sun light and you want to have that touch more, you should invest in polarising filters, because they are very expensive. For your digital camera you only can use circular polarising filters. (That goes with every digital camera)

Will a Vivitar 58 mm UV filter attach to a Nikon d3100 18-55mm lens?


Not directly. The 18-55mm takes 52mm filters. However, you could purchase a 52-58 step-up ring to allow you to adapt the filter to the lens for significantly less money than a 52mm UV filter. One such adapter is http://www.adorama.com/IRXRA5852.html

I bought filters for Nikon d60 n I don't kno how to fit them.now they told me tk buy the 55 mm filters so I bought them because apparently thats the size of my lens which 18-55 mm n now I dunno if the...


They told you wrong. The 18-55mm lens takes 52mm filters, as is marked on the lens near the mount.

You can either trade your 55mm filters for 52mm filters, or else get a 52-55mm step-up ring, which will adapt a 55mm filter for a 52mm lens.

Filters go onto the front of the lens. Remove the lens hood if one is attached. You'll see a threaded rim around the lens. The correctly sized filter (or step-up ring) screws into that.

I have a Kodak camera with a lens adapter that has 55 mm threads. How do I attach the Meade 64t-adapter to it?


Try a photo shop to see if you can get a T-adaptor to fit your camera (this is for SLR cameras without lens attached - the telescope becomes the lens)

But if you mean the 55mm filter threads, ie with the lens still on the camera, then you have the wrong thing. You need instead a contraption that holds the camera in position to take photos through the eyeepiece of the telescope (ie both telescope eyepiece and camera lens remain in place). With non-SLR cameras, that is the way to do it.

If it is the EF-S 18-55 mm lens, the filter diameter is 58 mm.

Attachment for filter and hood


If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.


hope that helps,
Caleb
