I must buy the adapter PA62 Pemaraal alluminium for my Panasonic DMC-FZ20.

This adapter is good for this camera and which filters 62mm I have to buy?

Best regards and thanks in advance.

Get the following filters :

UV Filters: Tiffen-1 UV Haze filter or Hoya Super HMC Pro 1 UV –

ND filter: Hoya

and a linear polarizer

Permaraal is a good adapter. You will need, at least, an UV Filter, a 62mm lens cap and a 62mm lens hood.

Polarizer is a must for outdoor shoots.

If you want to reduce deep of field in portraits or shoot cascades or sea, I suggest an ND filter.

Do not buy any color filter for use indoors with tungsten lamp, use the white balance feature in your camera

Ahh!!, I forgot. Buy the Linear polarizer. Works better than circular and it is cheaper.

You don't need a polarizer on all outdoor shots. Use it sparingly for bright skies and reflections.

Thanks a lot to answer.

I just order the adapter PA62 and one lens cap 62mm.

Now must buy a filter for lens.

I think that to care lens is better UV filter, and is more necessary to

other filters.

After I buy a linear polarizer.... is correct?



Sorry for my bad English, but I'm Italian

Homeless, Yes get the UV first and leave it on for protection. The polarizer can wait.

The Hoya HMC Pro-1 accepts additional filters.

Do not waste your money on expensive filters that net minuscule results that cannot be seen. Buy expensive filter if you can get them for $20.00 each. The Hoya series B with one coating on each side will get you excellent results. Start with a UV for a lens protector and a polarizer if you want to begin experimenting with glare removal and more saturated colors.

BTW, always use your lens hood except for on-board flash.
