Fotasy 49mm to 52mm Step-Up Ring Adapter
The Step Up Filter Rring adapter easily screws onto the front of any 49mm lens, and converts the thread size of your lens the thread size of any other 52mm accessory (such as filters, hoods, flashes and lens converters).
Made of high quality anodized black aluminum (metal). Color: Black.
Extremely solid and lightweight. Specifically designed for your camera for a tight and secure fit. No wobbling or cross-threading.
Your camera's lens thread size will be marked somewhere on the lens barrel. This number is always preceded by a "Ø" (diameter) symbol. For example: 49 = 49mm lens thread size. This number can also often be found printed on the back side of your lens cap.
They work. They don't cost a lot. You can buy better adapters but they will cost MUCH more! These do the job and are very inexpensive. The job of an adapter is not super complicated. The main concern is the quality of the materials and the threading of the parts. Bad threads and poor metal can result in an adapter that gets jammed. These work OK if you just use a little care. I am happy with them and they do exactly what I need and work OK. The price was super as I didn't want to spend ten times as much for a part I rarely use. If I were a working pro and had to put these off and on many times a day maybe I could see spending more for a well made name brand brass unit. For my limited use these work just fine and I would buy again.
I used this once with my Hoya ND filter and it is completely stuck on to the ND filter. I am desperately trying to get it off with no luck so far. I need some kind of rubber sheet I can grip this with. It would be so much better if it had some kind of grippy edges.
It's a 2 pack of 77-82MM Step-Up Ring Adapters. There were 2 in the pack as advertised, they do in fact adapt from 77 to 82MM. Honestly it's a bit silly to even request a review, but hey why not what else would I do with the 30 seconds it took to write this
The ring arrived to my office mail room and I used it. The ring was perfectly round and fit the threads on both my lens and camera, so the dimensions and roundness factor must be correct. Unfortunately for my old wide angle lens, when I zoomed out I could see the black around the edges, forcing me to zoom in while shooting, which negated the purpose of the wide angle lens in the first place. I was only out $4 though, so whatever. I can still impress oblivious clients with the act of changing lenses and back I guess. This of course wasn't the rings fault, the ring did it's job, it's a fine ring. It seems to be made of some kind of metal also, possibly aluminum.
For the price, these are nice adapters. Just be careful putting them on and taking them off so you don't strip out the threads. They will do the job and not break the bank.
5 starts because the quality seems good. It doesn't do what I need though. I needed a step down ring. don't be a stupid dummy and make the same mistake I did and think this will work to mount an 72mm fisheye lens to an 82mm threaded Panasonic hvx200. The male threads on this ring are 72mm and the female threads are 82mm
These seem well built and don't have the sticky thread feeling. Easy to take filters off of them.
Cheap and simple, it's of the specified dimensions.
