Dear all S602Z lauchao,

How many of you are using the tube converter. AP quoting me one (with no brand) for $20.00. It is a 55mm-52mm.

Is there a way of using 3rd filter BY NOT using the tube? Bcos after attaching the tube, the camera looks very LOONNNGGG! :D


Muchas gracias!

Hmmm...the other guy quoted me $25.00 yesterday for the 55mm-52mm adapter ring. So by getting the adapter ring, i can attach any no. of filters (eg. UV, polarizer, macro, etc) to it?
Thanks.

Someone was offered $18 for the tube. You can't use addon filters without the tube. Anyway your camera will be equally long anyway when it is turned on coz the lens will extend also.

I guess if u find it leh chey u can detach the tube after use.

hehee... it's not recommended, accidentally scratch ur uv filter is much cheaper than ur camera lens itself! especially like me sometimes will careless one... :D

my tube never removed since the day i put it on my camera... ;p

Chenwei, then what kind of case do you use for your cam? Must be those big ones?

did u get that cap-on Fuji bag that can fit a 602 (switched off and lens retracted) when the top is velcro-ed over?

I use that to keep my batteries, lens wires etc etc..

are all the adapters 55 to 52mm? Coz when u stack a few filters on at the same time you can see the further filters when taking un-zoomed shots...

Thats called vignetting. Yes, if you stacked more than 2 filters, you're likely to have vignetting.

Unless you get the original adapter (55-55mm), else 3rd party ones are all 55-52mm.

Then of course I heard that you can't get the original adapter unless u buy the telephoto or wide angel lens which cost like 100+ 200? That sucks man...

It's possible to attach a filter without using a tube, but it's going to be a "home-made" solution, and your lens assembly won't be protected anymore.

Yikes.. that looks a little risky... masking tape and all? what if the filters get too heavy and fall off? *crack*

But looks quite cool though.. haha

That's the bag I got. Looks like I have to follow what u did to change it into an accessory bag. :)

Aiyah! Happen to pass by CP today and got a bag liao...sorry hor:embrass: . They have this topload series bag which I think fit our S602 (w/t tube attached) perfectly. See here

http://www.lowepro.com/pages/series/toploads/top_mini.htm

They are selling the Mini for $18-$20.00.

I got a bigger bag (not this topload one) because I intend to put 2 cams in one bag. :bsmilie:
