Does the H1 need an adapter ring to use a 58 mm filter?

There are threads there - on the lens inside. What are they for?

Re: Does the H1 need an adapter ring to use a 58 mm...

In fact it needs an adapter ring and it comes with the camera, but the problem with this adapter is that it allows you to use sony lenses only (they made it too long on purpose, so only their brand optics can fir, otherwise you will get vignetting on the edges of picture. Note! This is not the issue of adapter ring itself, but the distance between photo lens and adapter - it is too big to use other branded lenses).

Re: Does the H1 need an adapter ring to use a 58 mm...

Yes. On the camera inself, there are threads on the inside of the lens area ...... that is for the adapter ring that comes with the camera kit. The 58mm lens does not ... and is a little pricey for me right now .... I was told you have to get "Sony Only" ?????? The adapter ring will also accept the 1.7x teleconverter lens ... which I did purchase and (personally) am not too impressed with it yet ... maybe if I went to a football game or baseball game, etc ... but for over all picture taking, the H1 itself has enough zoom power on its own. Have fun

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.

Polarizing filter for fujifilm FinePix digital camera A210


I'm not sure you can use a round filter that fits into the mouth of your lens. The manual does not say anything about thread size. But there should always fit a P type filter set. Kood has "cheap" sets. There are a lot of Chinese firms that are in this market. There are lots of other brands and it could be you can buy a filter and holder paying more than your camera is worth. A P-type adapter ring from KOOD is less than $10, and a filter from $30 (46 mm) till almost $100 for 86 MM.
Only if you are making lots of pictures in sun light and you want to have that touch more, you should invest in polarising filters, because they are very expensive. For your digital camera you only can use circular polarising filters. (That goes with every digital camera)

Will filters I have from old Nikon film camera fit or work with my Nikon Coolpix 8800? (I have heliopan filters) Thank you!


filter size of the Coolpix 8800 is 58mm, you might find single piece adapter/converter rings on ebay...... assuming the Heliopan's are 77mm.... try searching "77 58 ring" but you might have to get 3/4 rings to bridge the difference. Eg. 58-62mm, 62-67mm, 67-72mm, 72-77mm

Will the Quantaray 49mm to 55mm step up ring work on a Sony a100 DSLR camera


The step-up ring will on any lens with a 49mm filter thread, regardless of the manufacturer. The easiest way to find out whether it works with any given lens is to see whether the ring fits onto the front of the lens (you could also read the filter size written on the lens itself).
If it doesn't fit, purchase the appropriate step-up ring. That will be much cheaper than buying a whole new set of filters.
If the new lens(es) have a 55mm filter thread then you don't need the step-up ring at all. The filters will mount directly onto the lens.

Will a Vivitar 58 mm UV filter attach to a Nikon d3100 18-55mm lens?


Not directly. The 18-55mm takes 52mm filters. However, you could purchase a 52-58 step-up ring to allow you to adapt the filter to the lens for significantly less money than a 52mm UV filter. One such adapter is http://www.adorama.com/IRXRA5852.html

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.

How to install fisheye lens and adapter on kodak dx6490. Do I have to remove existing AF lens


No, you do not remove the existing lens. You need to purchase a lens adapter tube that fits around the existing lense. This adapter threads onto the inside bezel on the camera at the base of the lens assembly. Additional converter lenses and filters fit onto this. My adapter has 55mm threading for filters.

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.
