    Sony VFA-49R1 reviews

    VFA-49R1 49mm Filter Adapter for Select Cyber-shot Cameras is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Right Way This adapter is perfect for the RX100 series cameras. I used a quality aftermarket magnetic adapter for nearly three years and although I have nothing poor to say about it's quality, it just wasn't a good match. This new OEM adapter is by far the right way to go. The package includes an alignment ring that centers the adhesive-backed adapter ring to the center of the lens body. This eliminates shadowing from off-centered stacked filters and add-ons. The lens adapter mechanically locks onto the adapter and can be attached and removed quickly. I'm very happy with this accessory and should have gone down this road in the beginning.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Think carefully before purchase It works well, but adds a ring on the front of the lens that sticks out between 1-2 mm. I had to change the case because it was too tight. The product is useful if you use filters very frequently, but probably not worth it for occasional use of filters. If you only use a filter occasionally, just hold the filter against the lens. Bear in mind that you are advised to store the filter separately (disconnected from the camera) when not in use (to avoid the risk of it becoming detached).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy. If you wanna use your camera for astrophotography then you'll need some other adapters but once you got all that's needed then it's a breeze. When fitting I suggest leaving it facing down on a table with camera weight on top (if that makes sense) for 24 hours so it locks fully to camera and can sustain max weight. If you don't leave for 24 hours or a lot less it will stick but not at 100%.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Details that weren't perfectly clear: > *Doesn't significantly reduce the carryability you wanted in the RX-100*: This product is designed to allow 49mm filters without significantly adding to the size of the camera. For that reason the base ring that's stuck to the lens is quite small; it sticks out an extra 3 mm or so, immediately around the lens itself. For me, anyway, this doesn't affect the camera's pocket-friendliness to speak of. If you look at the main picture of this product above, what it's showing us in deep black is the significantly larger filter adapter that grips onto that base ring. That's where the filter threads are. Until you pop that filter adapter into place with its filter on it, the size hasn't changed nearly as much as that picture implies. When you're carrying the camera around, you can pop the filter assembly off again by squeezing the release tabs on the adapter's sides. You can see one of those on the side in the picture. (The largest thing in the Sony box is the spacing ring, whose purpose is just to help you get the base ring on cleanly around the lens. After that it's useless. The box also includes two plastic rings with a fine string in between, which it calls a remover. I imagine garroting the lens barrel. You can't put the ring back on if you remove it, because the adhesive's weaker.) > *Wait to use the camera again!* The base ring is attached using the aforementioned adhesive. You remove a paper ring to reveal it, and then press it firmly into place on the camera's lens barrel face. Then, crucially, you wait. The instructions say two things in quick succession about waiting on the adhesive. The first is that adhesion is not stable for several hours after attaching the base ring. The second is that one should use the camera again about one day after attaching the base ring. (It seems quite possible that one reviewer here didn't see those admonitions in the step-by-step text. This stuff does need to set. Another reviewer here said two days, but that's not in the instructions. Wait, though!) > *Carrying the filter adapter and any filters*: The box doesn't come with anything to protect a filter's face. One could pick up a spare 49mm lens cap -- that's the standard NEX size -- and attach it to the filter. While it's on, you have a temporarily bigger camera to carry. Or, one can squeeze the filter adapter's side tabs to release it and then carry it around with its filter attached in another pocket. That means a filter case deep enough to carry both the pieces involved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must for Serious Photography Normally, using my DSLR, I always keep a polarizer on hand for my color photography. I recently acquired a Sony RX-100ii which is a phenomenal camera for use when I don't want to carry around the much heavier and larger D800. I bought the filter adapter as well as a quality polarizer for it and I am very very pleased. Kept in the main adapter piece in a pocket of my small case, it is always available if needed. If I don't need it, I leave it in the case and just take the camera in my pocket. It isn't an expensive accessory, so do go for it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works It is not as stable after attaching it as the one by lensmate, and is more clumsy to use but works so far.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will Not Stick after one Year This is a nice attachment system, but after one year of use, the adhesive ring that sticks to the camera lens became unstuck. Luckily that happened in a camera bag or I could have lost an expensive filter and lens cap. NOTE: All original instructions were fully followed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Most worthwhile upgrade! This filter adapter works exceptionally well and is well worth the price. The ability to add a UV/polarizing/ND filter only enhances the capabilities of the RX100 line. Easy to put on and easy to use. Even my boss could do it.
