Well, I was messing with my old sony handy cam today and thought I got all these lenses and filters to bad they don't fit my Action HD.

Well, after some thought I decided to remedy that. So, I made a adapter for the Action HD and it accepts all of my 37mm lenses and filters. Now I don't have to settle for those magnetic ones with so so optics and the camera's lens is protected now from scratches.

In my excitement I forgot to photo the process. I have already been ask to make another for a person. So, I will photo how to do it and post it this weekend hopefully for all of you.

Best of all. It just slides on and can be taken on or off without harming the camera.



Here's some pictures with it finished:







enjoy

sweet...

did this , done that. a matter ofwhat you want to spend.

be careful when doing the pop or slide on the Aiptek, has a pop on lens as well clipped.

in order to take the Aips lens off under (6 o'clock position ), is a hole, to place in and two clips hold the lens protector.

so yes with th right parts you realy could have a modded Aip

reason why we love these things.

The way I made this you don't have to take anything off the camera. It slides over the original housing.

yes I understood, but on the cam itself I am saying be careful the lens barrel itself is a removable item.

Yeah, that's why i kept it light weight. I only plan on using my filters and my wide angle lenses which are light also.
