PMW-350 - Fujinon Lens Vignetting Issues
on Aug 30, 2010 at 4:58:34 am

Hello folks:

We just started shooting with a new PMW-350 and I am trying to bond with this camera and solve some problems.

The first is trying to put filters on the stock Fujinon lens. I shoot location glamour chiefly outdoors and always use a linear polarizer. Unfortunately, anything I put on this Fujinon lens creates a vignette, even the most narrow Tiffen. What? How can this be? I have been to a number of pro shops in LA for help and no one has a solution. Am I the only one trying to do this?

My question is, how do I get a polarizer (and potentially a softFX filter) on this 82mm lens without vignetting? I have a 82mm to Series 9 adaptor ring (and a nice Series 9 shade) but those cause vignetting if used with any other screw on filter. The only solution might be a Series drop in.

Can anyone suggest a solution to this?
