xt3 - ND filter won't fit (xf 18-55)


Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

Very new to "actual" cameras, I came from a Mavic 2 Pro which got me into photography, so apologies if i am completely missing something here, but i bought a Hoya ND filter for the xt3's kit lens (18-55). I did my research and bought a 58mm ND filter, as it states the 58 on the front of the lens, but it seems far to small for my lens, there is nothing for it to screw onto. I assumed it would screw on the same as the lens hood, but its just too small. The filter says 58mm on it and i've also put a tape across it to make sure it is 58mm, and it is. I know im being really stupid here and missing something but i cant find anything online, as soon as you type nd filter into any search its just comparisons on youtube or  filters for sale. Any help would be highly appreciated, we've got really heavy rain and i want to slow shutter the life out of every river near me when it stops :)

    • Can be something in camera make part of picture look blurry? when i focus long distance. is next to impsossible belive two different lenses have this.(18-55mm/f2.8-4 and 16-80mm/f4). and i mean with x-t20. and i meansomething else than sensor dirttiness i dont see anything and i used tools what are clean up sensor. i feel veryliekly not is my subject becouse with anoteher older body (non Fuji but Nikon) does not have it. oddly even i think i dont get this with 55-200mm/f3.8-4.8 i feel. or is these lences field curvature is so bad is impossible shoot godo landsacpes based photos what i seen net no is not. oddly even other things photograph finely.    
    • Hi guys! I see Fuji have released their new 1.40 firmware upgrade for the x-t30. It's supposed to support X-Webcam now. I'm not sure if that equates to usb tethering but I'll download it tomorrow and give it a try. Louise
    • I would like to know if I can take up to 5  multiple exposures on one frame? Is this possible using the X-T2 or X-T3? Or, is there an alternative fuji camera I could achieve this effect with? Thank you.  
    • Your comment intrigued me enough that I did some research. Based on the information at http://www.doc-diy.net/photo/remote_pinout/ most Fujifilm cameras use the same "remote protocol" as most Canons (and some Olympus and Pentax). So I wired up a 3.5mm plug the same way and it worked! So all you should need is a cheapish ($10 to $12 on Amazon, like this https://www.amazon.com/Kiwifotos-RS-80N3-Control-Shutter-Connection/dp/B071XPW655/) Canon remote and the plug adapter. Someone on another thread somewhere said "if you look for Canon Rebel you'll be good".
    • On my video files appear horizontal lines, I attach the screenshot, have anyone this problem? How can I solve it? Thx
