Re: Can´t remove UV filter from lens

A fat rubber band works a charm for this problem. Just wrap it around the filter, it grips well enough to allow for most stuck filters.

Re: Can´t remove UV filter from lens

Even though it's solved i'm going to add my 2 cents in here....

 

If you're in the field with no rubber band or hairdryer then use the soul of your trainer... it applies an even rubber pressure around the ring.... easy as pie. Unfortunately polarisers are a whole other ball game!

 

Best,

Re: Can´t remove UV filter from lens

What if I have put on the filter the wrong way round?

Re: Can´t remove UV filter from lens

Check this posting of mine. I had the same issue a couple of weeks back and found a perfect, cheap and safe solution to remove stuck filters "How to remove a stuck filter from front element"

 

In short, all you need is 2 zip ties, you may get away with just one, but it really depends on the diameter of the filter and how long your zip tie is. Good luck,
