Schneider L/S 240mm and Lee SW150 Adapter

Postby smajeed » Wed Apr 06, 2016 12:33 am

Hi,

New to the forum and wondering if someone can help me solve what is most likely a very simple problem but one I cannot seem to be able to fix and it is probably something silly.

I have the L/S 240mm lens and bought the 86mm filter adapter from Lee to connect to the SW150 filter system. I also bought adapters for other lenses and they all screw on without any issue and is straightforward enough but for the 240 lens I cannot for the life of me get the 86mm lens to screw on to the end of the lens.

It seems that because the hood sticks out a few mm from the lens itself the adapter is unable to hook onto the lens thread - it would only seem possible if I can remove the lens hood but it does not seem possible to remove the lens hood? It may well be an issue with the adapter but I assume lee are advising this adapter and it has been tested by someone...

Anyway - the 86mm is what is compatible according to suppliers and Lee's website but although the other adapters are spot on - this particular lens is proving tricky. If anyone knows if the hood can be removed (and how) or if they themselves happen to have tried the adapter on their own 240 lens - would be great to get any advice/help.

Thanks
Shahbaz

I know this is an old post, but I thought I would reply, as it concerns me as well. As you've probably determined, the integrated lens hood on the 240 makes using any filter slot system almost impossible. I have the Lee SW150 and the Wine Country Camera, and the Hitech, and the Breakthrough, blah, blah, blah. The integrated hood on the 240 seems to be just deep enough to prevent use of the adapters for these systems. Interestingly, I can get a Wine Country 77mm adaptor on my Mamiya 3009/4.5. Not sure if my Lee 77mm will work on that. Would love to have a solution for the S-K 240, though, that doesn't require individual 86mm filters.

Anyone tried removing the integrated hood?

Unfortunately I never got any further on this - no-one was able to help...

Thanks for the reply. I am inquiring of my dealer. I really might be willing to take the hood off, permanently if necessary, to be able to use filters better

Do let me know if you figure it out - how to remove it!
