    Hi

    I've got a P850. Looking at the manual it says you need an adaptor to use
    55mm filters for which it
    list neutral density and polariser. The UV filter is there but does not
    seem to be grouped with the
    other two. the question is .... DO I need this adaptor in order to fit a UV
    filter ? The information given
    is NOT very explicit at all and when I look on the web page it isn't much
    better. A google turns up
    some bits but not what I need to know.

    CAN I get a UV filter of some sort to fit the P850 without this monstrosity
    of an adaptor. I saw a pic
    of the adaptor and it doesn't exactly look flat. How does it work with the
    lens retracted ? The MAIN
    reason I want a UV filter is to protect the lens so it has to be on AT ALL
    TIMES and not just when
    the lens is extended.

    Cheers for now

    I have one of the adapters. It is fixed, the lens moves within it. I
    easily attached my old polarizing filter. IMHO it makes a dandy lens hood
    and with it attached the camera is a fixed size - which one can view as an
    advantage or a disadvantage, I guess.
