Question :
Why does the TG-1 have a removable lens ring?

Answer:
The lens ring is removable so that the converter lens adapter CLA-T01 ( sold separately ) can be attached to the camera.


The converter lens adapter CLA-T01 is required when using a converter lens or lens filter.
Refer to the following question for more information:
* How do I attach a converter or a lens filter to the TG-1 using the converter lens adapter CLA-T01?

Question :
How do I attach a converter or a lens filter to the TG-1 using the converter lens adapter CLA-T01?

Answer:
Converter lens adapter CLA-T01:

CLA-T01


The converter lens adapter CLA-T01 ( sold separately ) is required to attach the Teleconverter TCON-T01 or Fisheye converter FCON-T01 to the TG-1. You can also use the converter lens adapter CLA-T01 to attach a 40.5 mm lens filter that is 6 mm thick or less.

Before attaching the CLA-T01 to the TG-1, remove the lens ring from the camera.

Note:
- When a filter that is 6 mm thick or more is attached, vignetting may occur in the corners of the images. In this case, use a thin circular-type polarizing filter.
- Filters cannot be attached directly to the TG-1 camera.
- The image quality when using a filter is not guaranteed.
- A filter and a Fisheye converter FCON-T01 cannot be used simultaneously.
