    Hi,
    Im EXTREMLY new to photography and am trying to read and learn everything and everything i can and get into this cool world of photography. The camera i have (which is also my first) is a Fuji finepix S5200. I keep reading that its a good idea to get a uv filter since im shooting alot outdoors, and just to protect the lense. my question is (and im sure this is extremly "noob-ish") is what size of filter do i get? when looking at the lense at the front it says f=6.3-63mm 1:3.2-3.5 55mm. im not sure what any of those numbers mean but im geussing i need to look for a 55mm filter? Hope i dont annoy all you pro's out there with this question but once again im just getting my feet wet in photgraphy. thanks alot!:) :apple:

    according to some quick research, the filter thread is 55mm. is there an O with a slash through it before the 55? that would confirm our assumptions.

    I have the S7000 and you need an adaptor to fit standard filters. Try the fuji site they have online manuals etc.

    F=6.3-63mm?

    I'm sorry to open this thread up so late, but I'm looking for some information for the Fujifilm S5700. I've had it for about 3 years now and I'm looking to buy a DSLR. But, I was looking at the lens of the S5700 and I was reading the specs of it. I know what they all mean, such as the filter thread and the ratio, but I don't understand one part. It says "F=6.3-63mm". Can you tell me what this part means? It's not the maximum aperture as I know this is f3.2. So what does "F=6.3-63mm" mean?
