I posted this over at dpreview in the Casio forum, but I wanted to share it here as well.
I decided to just see what would happen if I tried out my Hoya R72 with this camera. I wasn't expecting much, but I think with the right set up it could be great! I used the plastic front adapter that came with my Panasonic FZ3, since it had the right sized threads for my filter, and it was deep enough not to interfere with the lens of the Z750. Any tube that was sealed enough not to let light in would probably work fine, even cardboard.

I took these handheld in snapshot mode (not worrying much about composition) and I tried some with manual white balance, some without. I prefer without, since I can use the red hues to shift the colors around as I've done here. With manual white balance set, the images turn out black and white, but grayed down and in need of contrast. The exposure time was 1/8 sec. so a tripod would help, but it wouldn't be a necessity. I think with a bit of experimenting with the camera settings the quality of the images could be wonderful. Oh, and there was no noise removal done to these, although it probably would make them better.

Just one more fun thing to try with this cool little toy!

Here is one example:
