Default Can I put a lens filter on a fuji S8200

Bought my daughter a bridge camera as she is just beginning to learn beyond point & shoot. Starting with the fuji S8200. Can I put a protective lens filter on a fuji S8200?

Having looked at loads of images of the S8200 I cannot see any threads on the end of the barrel to put a filter onto.

G'day Linda

While I agree with Kenzie, and it certainly appears not to have any threads, I wonder how the lens cap clicks into place - are there small threads for that?

There's a 'maybe' creeping in here - maybe something can be found

On the other hand, the front glass elements are very exposed to cross-light & physical damage - is there a lens hood that clips on? and could that have any filter thread capabilities?

there is a 'small' groove to accept the expansion ears of the PROPRIETARY lens cap

imo: due to EXTREME zoom (24mm equiv) and the lens 'flushing even' when retracted a filter would be impracticle anyway

the camera retails for under $300 bucks and is a 3-5 yr 'throwaway'

A rubber band, and a circular cutout from a plastic freezer bag.
