Stuck filter on Pro 1
Apr 24, 2012

I use a Powershot Pro 1 and have been trying to remove the UV filter from the adaptor ring (Canon's own). It is stuck and, on reading the Lensmate web page on accessories for the G1X, realise it's not unusual. Hence they use a different material for their adaptors. Does anyone have experience in separating a stuck filter from an adaptor? Any ideas on the best way to separate them? It seems Lensmate don't offer adaptors for such an old camera. I've been looking at the G1X as a replacement for the Pro 1 but am still not sure if it offers sufficient improvements and overcomes the Pro 1's main issue (for me), the slowness. Opinions welcomed and any responses greatly appreciated.
