Question about Sakar DIGITAL CONCEPTS FK49CL Camera Lens Filter Kit

1 Answer

Lens filters I am new at this. I was studying the different lenses and lens filters and combinations that I bought for my canon video camera and now two of the filters are stuck together. The CPL and a FLD. They screwed together easily but I can't get them apart. The CPL has the moving portion and that makes it difficult to get a good grip when trying to unscrew them. I'm pretty gentle with this stuff and in no way forced the threads when I first put them together. Can I just run them under hot water or something as normal as that? Thanks.

    Thanks for your suggestion but it didn't work. I don't get it. I really did not force the threads on this thing but it's acting like I glued it! Would hot water hurt this filters?

  • Lesowen Jan 29, 2008

    Success! Hot water worked. My wife made an interesting observation. She suggested that because of the tight seal a vacuum was created and when I heated the air between the filters it opened easily. I put them together again and found them to be impossible to separate but when I heated them up under the water they gave in within a minute. I think she's right! There's one to file away!

Lee, a little rubbing alcohol dabbed around the seam between the filters should loosen the threads, Make a full circle and while they are damp, tap the filters lightly a couple of times and try to separate them

    it is unlikely that water will hurt either of the filters, not too hot though

    Excellent, I will do that. Sometimes the alcohol trick works but lighter fluid has better properties. I've used it many times where the trim ring of a lens must be removed and there are no notches for a tool to spin the ring.

Adding a lens to my camera


To be sure you can use the lens, buy a Canon EOS lens. The plastic ones, can be cheap. I bought my last lens 28 - 80 mm, couple of months ago, for 5 dollar. and a working EOS 500 was connected for the same price. (lens and camera are still in good working order) Don't try other brands, because even when you find a convertor, it could be the lens will only work on manual focus.

Sigma produces lenses for different brands of camera's. The optics are the same, but the connection differs from brand to brand. So if you have a Sigma lens for Nikon, you won't be able to use it on a Canon or Sony. Unless you buy a adapter. But when you start using an adapter, you will lose the Af in most cases, because the electronic in the lenses differ also. and that can't be bridged.

Almost all early Quantaray lenses (and Sigma lenses, Sigma made Quantaray) in the Canon EOS mount will show error messages on Canon digital cameras (but still work fine on older EOS film cameras). usually err99 but err01 also. There is no DIY fix and Sigma ran out of update parts years ago. Current production lenses and Canon made lenses will not have this problem. This lens would only work for someone shooting EOS film cameras with no intention of "upgrading" their system to digital Canon cameras in the future.

How to mount q-ray 70-210mm lens on canon t3i body


Quantaray makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts. Assuming the lens has a Canon EF mount, it will fit onto the T3i just like any Canon lens. If it has a different mount, you'll need an appropriate lens mount adapter.

I have a Canon Power shot S3 . Can I use a Sigma AF-Mf zoom lens 100-300mm to it. If Yes, what type adapter to use.? I also have a 35-80mm canon lens. can this be used ? Thanks.


Your camera is a fixed lens compact model. You cannot fit other lenses to it unless they are specifically designed as supplementary lenses which screw onto the existing lens filter thread.

There are no adaptors you can safely use either, the only ones would be lens reversing rings which are used to mount lenses backwards for ultra close-up macrophotography, but the weight of the lenses you propose on the end of your existing lens would break your camera.

If you wish to use interchangeable lenses then you need to obtain an SLR or an interchangeable lens rangefinder camera.

It's probable that although it's designated Macro, the lens actually only gets in fairly close. I recommend you buy a closeup filter which is a simple lens you screw on the front of your lens. You can different strengths for getting in closer. Otherwise treat yourself to a set of extension tubes which do the same thing but more effectively.
I hope that helps

How do you remove the lense? Bought new lense but didn't come with instructions on how to remove the old one.


Switch off your camera before changing or removing lenses to avoid dust being attracted to the sensor
If you camera is a Canon Eos Digital Single Lens Reflex, the lens fits onto the body by being inserted into the 'hole' in the front of the body. To disengage the lens, press the button found at 4 o'clock on the body looking at it from the front and right way up. At the same time twist the lens anticlockwise and the body and lens will separate.
To mount a lens, line up either the red dots on the lens and body or the white rectangle, insert the lens into the recess and twist clockwise until you feel and hear it click home I hope this helps

I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...

Sigma 70-300mm lens not fitting Canon EOS 350D


Are you sure you bought a lens with Canon AF mount? To me it sounds like you got one with a mount for a different camera.
Does the mount on the lens look like this?
db24937.jpg

If it doesn't, you got the wrong version of the lens. If it does look like the mount in the picture, your just mounting it incorrectly.
If you hold the camera with the lens mount facing you, the red marker on the lens should be in the 12 o'clock position, lining up with the red marker on the lens mount on the camera. The turn the lens clock wise, about an 8'th of a full turn, and the lens should click into place.
I hope this help you!

Macro lenses are mounted to your camera body in place of the lens you currently have mounted on the camera. If you bought the camera with the lens already mounted you may not have realized that the camera and lens are 2 separate objects. To remove your lens see page 8 in your user manual for instructions and an illustration. If you don't have your user manual handy, you can download a PDF file from NikonUSA Here.

If what you bought are macro rings, they go on the camera, then your regular lens mounts onto the ring. You can use one or more of the rings between the lens and camera to produce different macro settings.

If what you bought are macro filters, they screw on to the front of your lens. If you have a UV filter on your lens you need to remove that before you attach another filter.
