Hi! I haven't been here in so long!
Anyways, last year I was using a Sony DCR-SR47 camcorder with a 30 mm thread size to screw my polarizer and other lenses onto. I now have a Sony HDR CX-500v that has a 37 mm size.
If I get a step down ring to convert all of my 30 mm filters to fit on the 37 mm new camcorder, do you think there would be a problem with focusing or vignetting? I only plan to use 1 filter at a time, not stack them.
And lastly, I've done searching and am having a very hard time to find a ring that would fit the sizes mentioned. I believe the only place was on Ebay, but I'm curious as to why it's so difficult? Are these not popular size threads or something?
P.S. This is the one I'm looking at. I contacted the seller and supposedly it will fit on my camcorder, but I'm curious why they show a photo of a camera? http://cgi.ebay.com …ories?hash=item2c52b9647f
Does it sound sketchy to you? (plus no returns accepted) I simply can't find one anywhere else though!
