    you can get the cheaper lens adapter from AP (about $18 - $26), which is a 45.6mm to 52mm adapter. then you can also get the UV lens for about $10.00 there too.

    The original Olympus lens adapter CLA-4 is a 55mm adapter compare to the non-original 52mm. What is the benefit to have a bigger adapter?

    Today went to AP and CP, both have no stock for CLA-4....

    Anyway, anyone know the price for ND and polarizing filter?

    Thanks.

    You pay more for bigger filters...

    my wife bought the remote control in Akihabara, Tokyo. paid about $36.00 (2500yen).

    AP is selling them. didn't ask them for the price.

    This is the only reason? So if given a choice, you would always go for smaller thread size adapter?

    Does anyone have advise on the use of the Olympus C730UZ in cold weather? I'm talking about 10 to -7 degrees C.

    How should I protect the cam?

    don't think no air tight box is going to protect it from being forzen... frankly there is no why you can protect it.... from the tempreture.... unless you use a full manual non electrical camera....

    alamak, can stack more without vignetting lah...
    e.g. hehe CPL + ND4 + +4 (shooting at fly outside window against sun. need flash)

    low tempreture even to zero degree...shouldnt be much of a problem unless condensation sets in
