It is pretty bad, I guess I should have used 52mm filters with no adaptor?



Thanks again for the help.

You can still use the filter you already bought, I think the lens adapter is more for the TCon than the filters... but if you go by Ritz, they should have a 52-55 step up ring that will allow you to put your 55mmfilteron your 52mm threads.

That's what I had to do. I have a 52mm adapter for my P850 and accidently bought 55mm filters. Being in Iraq I figured instead of trying to return them it'd be easier to just get the step-up ring. I used the adapter and filters during an outside shoot for my squadron and I didn't notice any vignetting problems. I'll break down and buy the 55mm adapter at some point...as my next major purchase for my camera will probably by the Oly TCON.

Anyways, glad you got your filter problem taken care of

I tried the advice on the 52mm to 55mm step up ring and 55mm lens cap. It still has a small amount of vignette at 24mm. Does a 52mm filter fix this problem or is this as good as it gets?

Thanks

I bought the 52mm uv filters for my P880 and I don't have any vignetting at 24mm.

Now I thinking of getting the Kodak Telephoto and adapter. Does anyone know if I can I install the filter between the main lens and adapter?

I think the reason you are getting vignette is due to the filter being stacked so to speak... it's stacked ontop of an adapter, the larger size filter you use, the more you will be able to stack... I use 58mm filters and can stackthree high (two filters plus the step-up ring) without any vignette... i'm highly doubt you will be able to put more than one 52mm filter on there... maybe try a 52mm filter if you never are worried about having to stack them... or 58mm (or larger)+ stepup ring if you want to one day stack filters

Please, someone, put a sticky note on this forum topic: The P880 takes 52mm filters directly.

It is nutty for Kodak to suggest their adapter plus 55mm filter, as that is unwieldy, expensive, and TOTALLY unnecessary. The 52mm filters I use showNO vignetting at 24mm unless you try to stack two or more.

The only reason to buy 55mm filters for the P880 is if you want to share them with a P850 (or other 55mm diameter lens). I have both cameras, and found cheap but effective Sunpak filters (under $20 @ buy.com for a pair of UV and circular polarizer). So I have both sizes in my kit and can use both cameras without messing with filters or adapter rings.

I am thinking about buying a P880, and am confused about this filter issue. If the P880 lens is threaded for52mm attachments, can I buy a 52mm polarizer and/or 52 mm uv filter and just put them on the lens without any adapters or tubes? And if I am able to use the filter the is appropriately sized for the lens, will it cause vignetting?



Thanks.

The P880 will accept 52mm filters directly. Simply place them over your lens and screw into place. You may get vignetting if you stack two, but that is an issue only when you are in the 24-28mm range. I keep my UV filter on all the time with no issues. If I use a polarizer, I just take off the UV filter and put on the polarizer.

Please note that you don't want to put something heavy like a telephoto lens on these threads. Neither the threads nor the zoom portion of the barrell are designed to take that kind of weight. That's about the only use for the 55mm adapter.
