Hi all

 

I am very new to photography, I bought a Fotodiox 58mm filter thread macro reverse mount adapter ring and the damned thing is stuck on my camera. It wont move an inch. 

 

I've obviously done something wrong. Can anyone help me please?

 

What will happen to my photos if I cant get it off and I continue using it the correct way round?

 

I am actually just noticing, I ordered a 58mm but when I look at my lens I see it says 50mm. Could this be why?

 

Gosh I'm so silly.

 

THANK YOU

That looks stuck on your lens, not your camera. The AF-S 50 mm primes all have the same 58 mm filter thread.

To remove it easier, get a filter wrench that fits 58 mm filters.

Peter’s suggestion is a good one, as it’s the correct tool for the job.

 

However, if you have some string that will go round the knurled edge of the adapter,

this may give enough grip to allow it to be rotated & removed.

I agree with Peter as well....The right tool for the job and not to expensive.  Quicker and less expensive is the string above or a rubber band.  I used to keep a couple in my bag for just such occasions.
