Thanks for that Peter - I did figure out your link but then wandered off to play - well that's what long weekends are for. Shall take a closer look at that and the other goodies on the site later!

Alison did you once say you had a bulb air release knocking around somewhere, I could just imagine you doing a balancing act wearing high heals trying not to fall over while doing a self portrait Smile

Peter I found this review on the JJC hood and adapter I`m using.

And another on a thumb grip, any street shooters here that have ever used them in the past, these are nothing new.

Indeed i do have a bulb air release though it's not the most reliable bit of kit Smile I'll stick to my A350 for the self portraits - I have a nice wireless remote for that although I did find out (and it makes sense) that it doesn't work through my ducting Smile

I've yet to investigate goodies for the X10 - the evenings are going by far too quickly to get much done at all Sad

I`ve been enjoying a few days off, but working 3 double shifts, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, there going to hit me with a vengance Sad

Money`s tight and I`m not exactly rolling in dosh, I`ve been debating the pro`s and cons of getting a cheap IR filter over a dear one just to test out Smile

I must rummage through my filter box - I know I've got a small R72 knocking about somewhere - just not sure where Smile I'll add that to the list of things to do tonight!

Thanks Paul for pointing us to that review, I will definitely get an 52mm adaptor for the X10 but I am struggling with where to get a non Fuji branded one, the company I mentioned previous (Suntekstore) gets all their orders from Hong Kong and after doing a bit of research their are a number of unhappy customers!

Ebay are a bit up and down, so I will just have to be patient Smile

I ordered one via ebay last night - from a supplier that I've used before so I'm confident it'll be just fine.

However looking through my filter box I see that most of my spares are 55mm - just 3mm out!

I had a dig around and I found the old 52mm polariser filter I thought I had Smile

Have you a spare 55mm lens hood, preferably designed for a wide angle lens Alison, a step up ring could be the way to go, but only if you disparately want to use those filters.

Yep - I've got a step-up ring so that's sorted. I must just go through my box and see what's there - I know there's a 55mm R72 amongst them, plus a circular polariser and maybe a few ND filters too......

Got my filter adaptor from ebay, a beautiful piece of engineering at a reasonable price Smile
