Here's a video I did about a month ago to introduce the new Magfilter threaded adapters for high end compact point and shoot cameras. These filters are now available to use any brand Polarizer or ND filter on cameras like the new Sony RX100. Adapters are available to fit 52mm, 55mm, and 58mm threaded filters of your choice. Check it out the Carry Speed website (click here).
Carry Speed MagFilter Threaded Adapter
@Mike - Yes it will work on the RX100.
Correction RX100 Mk 1. Sorry about that
Will the 58mm Magfilter fit on the original MK 1. RX10
@DR - I suggest using the 52mm threaded adapter since you can add your own glass CPL, ND, etc.. If you didn't catch this video, I used the G15 on vacation with the MagFilters. httpss://cheesycam.com/canon-powershot-g15-compact-vacation-time-lapse-camera/
Hi Emm, can you tell which of the two adapters 36/42 would fit the tested G15? Think, i've seen the metal-ring protruding into the corners of the view with a G15? Thanks in advance.
PS: The mag-idea seems just great... 😉
@Gerson - The 52mm works fine.
Hi all ,what best adapter filter for close ups for sony rx 100 ... 55mm 52mm?? I want buy one tanks
@Danny - I'm actually doing a review as we speak on the Canon G15. Love it..
I'm in the market for a quality point and shoot. Do you have a favorite?
I'm looking for a small dslr in my pocket. Great video etc. rx100 or nex series? What's the latest?
Thanks as always.
I found the MagFilter CPL Filter comes in 2 sizes (36mm and 42mm) but the adapter doesn't. So this adapter can only fit on 42mm ring？
Thanks again Emm, I must have missed that in the video.
@Mojo43 - Yes it does, it shows in the video at about 2:00.
Thanks for the response, so just so I am clear... The thin metal ring comes with the adapter?
@Mojo - You buy the adapter. To install you stick a thin metal ring (this is not magnetic) to the front of your camera lens. The adapter has magnets built in and you can thread a filter to it.
So you buy the base and the adapter, correct?
52mm sold out 🙁
@Peter - Many had a preference with filter glass, so with the new threaded adapters, you can use your own variable ND filter. Other filters will follow after, but no ETA.
do you know when he's gonna come out with the vari-ND filter for the rx100? He had said sometime around now. Is it getting pushed back some more because of the monopod they've been working on?
that looks cool as well.
Give a heads up if you get a heads up.
