Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Lens Hood Size

I bought a lens hood for my dcr-vx2000 with a 58mm radius size. But, it doesn't fit. Everyone I've talked to and even the manual showed this is the size I am supposed to get. I saw that my lens says 72mm. Should I have gotten a 72mm lens hood for it to fit properly? I didn't see that in any manual i looked at...all said 58mm, but that is too small for my camera.

The VX2000 lens does have a 58mm diameter thread for filters etc. The 72mm refers to the focal range (Zoom) from 6mm to 72mm. The 58mmm lens hood should fit, but I strongly suggest you obtain a SONY OEM lens hood with lens cap. Goto http://www.pro-cam-electronics.com or other professional camcorder sites for these items.

Petal lens hood is showing around the edges of shot


Apparently the lens hood is too narrow for the current focal length. Either zoom in to narrow the field of view or remove the lens hood.

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 need to replace the lens hood for my Sony dsc f828 . What size should I be looking for ? 55 mm ? Thanks


The lens thred is 58mm on F828, however a 58mm lens hood does not work; I have both a reverseable and a regular 58mm flower hood that extends 1/2" to the front of the lens causing dark corners on 28mm focal length. In addition, the lens itseft has built in receiver for hood as labled in the manual, I am thinking to get a 62mm or 60mm reversable hood and match up with the receiver on the lens

How do I fit the Hoya UV filter that I have been sold with my New Nikon D3100?? Darent be too heavy handed as new to this. Thanks.


The filter doesn't go onto the camera, but onto the lens. Assuming it's the proper size, it should just screw into the threads on the front of the lens (the end away from the camera). If the lens hood is on, remove it first.

How toput a filter and hood


Assuming the filter is of the right size, it screws into the thread mounting on the inside of the front rim of the lens.

Depending on the particular hood, it either fits into the bayonet mount on the outside of the front rim of the lens or simply slips on.

If you're using a step-up ring to mount larger filters or using a Cokin-type filter, then you'll need a new hood to accommodate.

Just bought a 52mm hood, but it doesn't fit... Why??! Do I need another adapter?


The hood you buy needs to be the same as the inner ring on your lens. If you look at the inside of the lens ring or on the outside of the lens it will tell you what size filters will fit your lens. If the 52mm is too small or too big you should be able to find a adapter for it so it will fit. Try going to B&H photo website. They have tons of photography items. Hope this helps.

Need to replace lens


Hi!
The DVC7 has a 43mm filter thread on its lens. Depending on your Bower's thread size, you may need a step-up or step-down adapter ring to fit it to the DVC. 
After checking if you have your sizes correct, you need to remove the DVC7's lens hood. After that, it's just a matter of screwing the wide angle lens to the DVC's lens.
Hope this helps!

Lost lens cap


I would sugest using an adaptor ring. You can reduce the size of your lens opening down a common size lens cap that will fit your camera. If you can't go this route then give me the make and model number and I will see what I can do for you. LJ
