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?

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).

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

Will a mercury optic .45x 58 mm wide angle lens fit on a canon camera?

It will fit onto any lens with a 58mm filter thread. It can also be used on lenses with different size filter thread with the appropriate step-up/down adapter.

Need to convert a Vivitar 70-150mm telephoto from Canon TX to Nikon FTn mounts

Vivitar made several different 70-150mm lenses. If the lens has a T-mount then you can purchase a Nikon T-mount adapter and replace the Canon one on the lens. If the lens does not have a T-mount then you're out of luck. Nikon cameras have thicker bodies than Canon cameras, and an adapter would have to have negative physical size.

HOW TO PUT Fotodiox 49mm Filter Thread Macro Reverse Mount Adapter Ring for Sony E-series

The ring threads onto the front of any lens with a 49mm filter thread, just like a filter. The front of the lens then fits onto a camera body, effectively mounting the lens "backwards" or reversed. With most lenses, this allows the lens to focus very close, for close-up or "macro" photography.

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.

I have a Kodak camera with a lens adapter that has 55 mm threads. How do I attach the Meade 64t-adapter to it?

Try a photo shop to see if you can get a T-adaptor to fit your camera (this is for SLR cameras without lens attached - the telescope becomes the lens)

But if you mean the 55mm filter threads, ie with the lens still on the camera, then you have the wrong thing. You need instead a contraption that holds the camera in position to take photos through the eyeepiece of the telescope (ie both telescope eyepiece and camera lens remain in place). With non-SLR cameras, that is the way to do it.

Filters

If it is the EF-S 18-55 mm lens, the filter diameter is 58 mm.

Attachment for filter and hood

If you go to the camera store that sells quantaray then they will be able to order you one if they do not have it in stock.
or you can find one on a online auction site.
you need a step down ring. I believe the size of your lens is 58 mm but you could go to any camera store and ask them to verify that. but it should also be stamped on the front of the lens written in white.

if you find 58 mm anywhere on it then I am right. And that means you need a 72 to 58 mm stepping ring.


hope that helps,
Caleb
