You can try this but at your own risk. It is likely you will damage the filter, its threads or the lens' threads.


Recommend that you remove the lens from the camera to avoid damaging the camera.

Option 1: Wrap a rubber band around the filter ring only and see if you get a better grip.

Option 2: Use a sharp nosed pair of pliers and grip only the filter and *PULL* (not push) in the anti-clockwise direction when facing the lens towards yourself. This is likely to damage the filter or the lens thread, but may remove the filter.

Sometime the filter gets screwed on too tight. If you can't remove it there is a tool available that grips the outside of the filter tight and allows you to unscrew it. Google filter tool. Remember...Lefty loosey Righty tighty.

What would happen if I would take out both hepa filters from my rainbow e-series? I do need extra super filtering - previous versions didn't have it and it was ok... Hepa filters are not so expensive...

It won't hurt anything if you don't have a problem with the tiny particles that will be blown into the air. The Hepa filters trap small particles that can be unhealthy to breath. Most of these particles consist of human skin and hair, pet dander, dust mites, etc.. Many people are not bothered by these tiny particles. Others, like asthmatics, can have serious complications from them and the Hepa filters really help.

I think the protective layer of my lens is damaged, possibly from photographing in a hair salon (Bride getting ready) and just being around hairspray. I have cleaned the lens with lens solution, a cotton...

It seems that hairspray has hardened on your lens.I would at least try some isopropyl alcohol(rubbing alcohol).It won't hurt the glass.If that doesn't work goo-gone should and should not hurt the glass but I am not sure about the plastic.I think it will be okay,just read the precautions.It sounds like if you don't try these at least,you're going to need a new lens anyway?
Good luck! Greg

Camera filter stuck on lenses

You can try using one of those rubber jar openers, if you have one handy in your kitchen. Or wrap a suitable size rubber band around the filter to improve traction.

If that doesn't do it, a good camera store should have a filter wrench for exactly this purpose. If you don't want to buy one, simply ask for a demonstration of the product, using your lens. Most clerks will be happy to remove one or two filters. If you bring in a large box of lenses...

Does the 52mm filters fit a Canon AV1 35mm SLR?

Filters fit lenses, not cameras. Some lenses take large filters, others take small filters. Many lenses have the filter size inscribed on them near the front, followed by something that looks like a Greek phi (a circle with a line through it). Alternatively, since the size is the diameter, you can always measure the lens with a ruler to see how big the diameter of the filter mount is.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens not focusing

I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.
