You can get screw-in filters, but those that require adaptors or holders are more versatile, as you can use them on a variety of different sized lenses.

How to install a 52mm filter to a nikon 18-55mm lens


If you have 52mm screw in filters, look at the filter and you will notice that the metal ring has threads. Look at the inside of the rim surrounding you lens front element and you will also see screw threads. Carefully align the filter with the lens threads and screw them together. Do not over tighten or you will have difficulty removing your filter.

Although less common today, unthreaded filters are or were in the past available. If you have unthreaded filters, you will need to buy a 52mm filter adaptor. The adaptor is made in two screw together pieces. Unscrew the two pieces, drop the filter in between them and screw them back together. Then, screw the adaptor onto your 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.

Are there filters made for the Finepix S1000fd? If yes can you recommend a seller?


You will need to buy an adapter I believe. Filter kits and auxilary lenses are sold all throughout eBay, KEH.com, bhphotovideo.com, lots of places.

Just make sure your threading is correct. You can get 3 filter kits for $30 or less

Hoya filters are an excellent choice.

Setting to shoot black and white


No, you can reduce the saturation but not go mono, (in the parameters settings)
You will need to adjust the colour balance and convert to mono in photoshop (or similar)
There are quite a few articles on the web regarding shooting in IR with the rebel, best results can be obtained with a modification to the camera http://ghonis2.ho8.com/rebelmod.html (reversable by using a IR cut filter for non IR shots) as it contains quite a strong IR filter which means although it is possibler without modification exposures will be quite long with IR filters and focusing difficult as the auto wont work and you will be able to see very little trough the viewfinder once the IR filter is on.
Here are a few articles, they may not relate to your exact model but all the eos cameras are somewhat similar.

Im sure there are many others.

Best of luck

Lens adapter needed


Get yourself a step ring, 52mm for you S8000FD, this has a thread on the end and allows filter attachments. I have an S8000FD and have since bought a step up ring, UV filter and Polariser, plus another lens cap which fits on to the end via a pinch mechanism rather than clamping like the one provided by Fuji.

Dropped my camera


Take for repair - The cost will be about half the price of a new camera assuming that parts can be found. Get the new camera.

CD400 and IR


Check it by point the lens at an IR source, like a remote control. Click on the remote, if you can see the IR light in the LCD finder, then the camera is sensitive to IR and should work. I think it will. The specs on the CD400 is almost completely the same as the S85 (excepting the obvious differences) and it probably has a lot of the same guts.
