I would be happy to buy online - preferably in pounds, although I daresay I could cope with other currencies. I do not want to spend a fortune...but a couple of filters should not cost much, should they? I would be interested to find a local proper shop, too. MD
I already have something along these lines. The problem is that you cannot use the lens hood with the adaptor. So I need filters which fit the camera without an adaptor - which is what I would expect from a large manufacturer - or possibly a lens hood which would fit round the adaptor and still do the job without intruding in the picture. It seems to be a ridiculous problem. Thanks for your efforts, MD
I want an ordinary hood that blocks distracting sidelight. The one you showed me looked too complicated and much too expensive. Every camera I have owned I have equipped with hood and either a uv filter or a plain glass protector of the lens. There has never before been a problem - either buying standard sizes, which seems not to work for Fujifilm, or getting from the manufacturer. I must say their customer relations seem poor. No way on the website to contact the firm directly or to purchase such things, if they exist.
Thanks for trying. I have sent them an e-mail and await a response. I have a bit of a problem with my very slow, steam driven computer at the moment. I shall let you know what the response from fujifilmusa is. I suspect I shall be put on to a commercial question and answer site............
No joy from Fuji USA. I was advised to use an adaptor and lenses that i already have, indicating that 1) Nobody read my message thoroughly to identify the problem, and 2) there are no filters that fit this camera and can be used in conjunction with the lens hood. Had I known this, I may not have bought the camera. Still, it is a nugget of information you may want to use if asked to compare bridge cameras. Fare well and thanks,
