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...

What lense can i use for close-up shots

That would depend on the camera, but I'm going to assume you have one with interchangeable lenses.

The camera manufacturer probably makes one or more "macro" or "close-up" lenses for your camera. Any of these lenses will let you get closer than a normal lens. Many third-party lens makers also make macro lenses.

Another alternative is to put extension tubes between the lens and the camera body. This moves the lens further from the camera, shortening the focus distance.

Probably the cheapest (and lowest quality) alternative is to put close-up lenses on the front of any lenses you already own. These screw on to the front of the lens like a filter and act like a magnifying lens, letting you get closer to the subject.

Just bought the Olympus pen EP-L1 Im having trouble find lenses for my new toy any suggestions?

You don't state why you're having trouble finding the correct lenses, but they are easily available from online suppliers. Traditional retail outlets tend to stock very few of them though simply because there isn't sufficient demand to buy in and keep stocks of products which are constantly having updates and price adjustments.

You can use all Olympus Micro Four-Thirds lenses and most Panasonic Micro Four-Thirds (although to use some of the latter you may need to update the body or lens firmware.

Regular Four-Thirds mount lenses can also be used via an adapter but may not be fully functional.

Unlike other lens mounting systems, you can also get adapters to use almost any lens on Micro Four-Thirds system cameras, but the lens will typically have to be used in a fully manual mode with the aperture set fully open for composition and focus and then manually stopped down for metering and image capture.

Lense stuck out camera shuts downwith lense out

If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

My camera lense is stuck and my camera wont turn on

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

Your camera's problem is with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!
