    I've been waiting for this adaptor to come on the market but, at $20, I think I will wait a bit longer. :shock:

    My Spanish is not so good but this is just the kit? That means you have no filters yet?

    Yeah, it allows mounting of standard 46mm camera filters... Which you'd need to buy, or may well have already.. I have polarisers and ND filters at that size...

    Awesome filters you have. For sure you will be happy with the polarized filters. For what you need the nd filters in the sky? I bought them for my slr camera but that is for water and a long shuttertime.

    I will check my ´camera closet´ for 46mm filters but i dont think i have that size. I will look for an adapter set because i have loads of filters for my camera.
    The lens cap is falling of all the time so it is not a bad idea to use this kit and put an uv lens filter on the Vision camera for permanent protection of the lens.

    You're right -- probably won't need the ND on the PV... But I have them anyway!
    If you have bigger than 46 filters then as you say an adapter ring will be good... And yeah, the lens cap us pretty useless!

    Hopefully dji will have the filter mount soon...

    Now if there was only a way to adjust a circular polarizing filter. LOL. I guess you can preset prior to launch and get what you get.

    Why not just get an lens adapter? MagFilter is the best - I have one for my Rx100 - it is magnetic (you can get adhesive ones too.) and it allows me to put any 52mm filter I want on my point and shoot camera. Should work exactly the same on a Vision.

    I hadn't thought of that benefit. I've already lost my rubber lens cap somewhere between the car and the field. If you had a UV ring filter on the camera you could also put a standard 46mm spring-loaded lens cap on the filter!

    Brilliant combination

    I just checked, there are many 46mm filters (and spring-load lens caps) on the market. This way it will be a very easy to use this product to protect your lens and add any filter you like.
    Also the kit seems so go a bit further on the camera so probably you don´t see the edge of the filter when you make pictures.

    It might not be the best idea to use anything magnetic so close to the compass.

    None of my filters or rings has any ferromagnetic materials in 'em... All light alloys...

    Pointless, actually. I just never thought I'd have the right filter size kicking around since I can't seem to pick a winner re: technology. What's your point with the snarky response?

    Also pointless but not snarky. I saw my text in your quote that made me curious. Thats all

    I just loaded up my Maglens and works perfectly. I'll post some pictures.
