MX-1 details

Sorry it's a bit blurry!

Hi Ben,

Thank you.

In his video, Blunty used MagFiler on his XZ-1. XZ-2 has the same lens, which is almost same as the MX-1 lens.

We'll need to inspect lens barrel on XZ cameras, but I think that 32mm will not be a big problem.

I was aware of the two parts assembly but wasn't sure about the diameter of sticky part.

I sent an e-mail to Carry Speed and they asked me to refer to this picture of theirs.

Mag filter

(about this shot: not Bf, nor FF but side focusing LOL!)

To me it looks like the sticky ring, about 32mm diameter, will not be big enough to grip properly to the lens which has a minimum diameter, for this purpose, of 31mm. It really should be at the very least 33mm to stick satisfactorily.

I don't think I will take the risk!
