    You do not need a filter and hood to use the camera or any camera. I have a Vito with a Skopar lens and have had wonderful results and never had a filter or hood on it.

    I have found the hood and it is 32mm (and fits my Vito). I thought I had also found a 32mm UV filter but on closer inspection, it's a +1 Dioptre lens. That will make all of your pictures blurry!

    If you send me your address by PM, I will post it to you.

    Dear Steve
    Sorry for the delay.
    My camera is a 35mm camera just like the one on the picture shown on the link you have sent.

    Dear Steve I thank you very much and your kindness to this matter is greatly appreciated.
    However, I live in Japan and it will be costly for you to send the material. I would like to remit money by bank transfer for all the expenses including the purchase of hood. I have no intension of having you go through all the troubles to do this for nothing. Please let me know the amount and where money has to be sent. Best regards

    I will find out what the (actual) postage will be today. It doesn't weigh much so I don't think it will be much (the Post Office website suggests £1.12 for surface mail and about £2 for air mail). Probably not enough to worry about. Certainly not enough to bother with a bank transfer. And I don't want anything for the hood itself.

    O.K. I will contact you via e-mail for your address then post it. Rather than repay me with money, just pass on a favour to someone else when you are able.

    I don't know whether Steve will agree with this suggestion, but I'll mention what I've suggested to others who want to do something to say thank you.

    lens hood

    If any store is trying to charge $250 for a lens hood unless it is made of pure gold, then run, do not walk away from there. and never go back!
