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.

Would a hoya Infrared R72 filter tamron 72mm lens

That would depend on the filter.

Since Tamron has never made a lens with a fixed focal length of 72mm, I assume the 72mm is referring to the filter thread. I also assume you mean the Hoya RM72 infrared filter. The "72" in the filter name is a description of the filter and has nothing to do with its physical size. One vendor lists the RM72 filter in sizes ranging from 46mm to 77mm. As long as you get the filter to match the thread on the front of the lens then it will screw right on.

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.

Dont know where filters go for Quantaray mirror lens 755035

That lens takes a 77mm filter - if you examine the end of the lens very closely, you'll see some threads just on the inside lip of the very edge - the filter screws on to the end via those threads.

My rotating polarizing filter fell apart and I can

Hi,
Based on the fundamentals of retaining rings, The filter lens probably fits into the ring housing first, and the retainer ring is inserted inside of the ring, following the lens. The retainer will need to be compressed in order to fit inside the ring, but will snap into a groove once in proper position.
I hope this is helpful... Good luck.

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.

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.
