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 :)

    • I picked this up and have been testing.  The assembly looks a bit frankensteinish but seems to serve the purpose.  I agree with CatAreGods comment on this maybe being unnecessary under some circumstances.  I am pretty happy with it from the standpoint that it lets me balance the entire camera/lens/teleconverter assembly much better over the tripod mount.  That will come in handy with windy or other challenging conditions.
    • I'm going to throw in my two cents here. I have the Fuji GFX 50r and the 50MM pancake lens. This is a great street and general shooting 1-lens kit. As to the difference between FF and MF, I also agree with Jim, I see a difference in the color and resolution on screen (I have yet to print from my Fuji yet). A friend refers to this characteristic as the "special sauce," the combination of Fuji's sensor and lenses. Yes, I have FF Canon R6, the files are good, but there is a visual difference that to me looks richer with the 50r.  The shot of Mano was taken with the 50MM lens on the 50r.
    • Nope, even when it was at minimum extension, no hood.
    • Thank you for your all your replies. I'll update this once available. It's not easy to go to the service center this time.
