Not sure who’s cooler, the 1975 Stutz or the guy looking at it.

Local car show had some really nice cars. But this one, a 1975 Stutz Blackhawk VI, took the cake. When I shot it, I had intended on only shooting that pimped out car. The guy next to it backed up out of the frame, so he thought. Planned on cropping him out, but to be honest, I wasn’t sure who was cooler, the car or the guy looking at it.

My Review of Adorama Step-Up Adaptr Ring 67mm Lens to 77mm Filter

Good Step up ring

I use this step up ring for my 18mm-105mm Nikkon lens. It allows me to directly attach 77mm filters. The action is fairly smooth but the powder coating sounded a little crunchy initially.But the machining is nice.
It is aluminum, so take care not to over tighten the filter to the ring and ring to the lens. It would be easy to strip or damage the components if you are not mindful.
I suspect those who are negative on this product don’t know how to care for equipment properly.

My Review of Adorama Step-Up Adaptr Ring 58mm Lens to 77mm Filter

Good Step up ring

Pros: Firm Mount

Nice Step up ring. Fits well onto my lens and the filter. Made of aluminum and coated. The action is a bit stiff, but prevents the ring or filter from sliding off.
I should investigate using a small amount of grease to let the action slide easier.

Take care not to over tighten when using the ring. The ring could be damaged or make it a real hassle to remove. I made that mistake when using the step up ring with a filter that just wasn’t fitting on properly. It came off, but in the field it could be a problem.
