    Hi,
    I've been looking at purchasing some filters for my newly acquired Fuji s9500. I was doing well, until I came across "Twin Threaded" filters. I know what a twin thread is, but there's nothing on the camera or owners manual or on the Fuji site to let me know which type of thread is used.

    Can I use a Twin Threaded 58mm filter on a Fuji s9500?

    Or will it screw on Squint?

    :lease: Help.

    Tom.

    Isn't twin threaded that it has a thread on both sides i.e. a thread to screw it onto something (cameara) and a thread to screw something else onto the filter (skylight)?

    or am I totally off it?
