Sony RX100 VI Quick Change Filter Adapter Kit 52mm by Lensmate + Hoya 3 piece Digital Filter Kit With Case

This combo includes our Sony RX100 VI Quick Change Filter Adapter (which allows you to use any standard 52mm filter with no vignetting throughout the entire focal range) plus the Hoya 52mm Digital Filter Kit.
  • $ 59.95
  • Save $ 4.95 (reg. $ 64.90)



Now you can add filters to your Sony RX100 VI with no vignetting through out the entire focal range.


Note that our current Quick Change Part 2 will also fit the new RX100 VI, and the filter size will still be 52mm.


Using the Lensmate Quick-Change Filter Adapter kit, only the tiny receiver stays on the camera (it adds only 3mm to the depth of the camera). The filter/filter holder assembly bayonets onto the receiver for quick changes without having to thread the filter on and off. The filter holder is retained by a low tension locking system, so very little torque is applied to the lens barrel when attaching and detaching it.

There is no chance of flash blockage at any focal length (with the filter holder removed), since the receiver is smaller in diameter than the end of the lens barrel. It attaches to the camera using a 3M dual-sided adhesive film which holds tenaciously yet is easy to remove cleanly and safely when desired.

We designed the system so that the filter remains in the filter holder and is attached/detached as an assembly. The filter holder bayonets onto camera with less than 90 of rotation to the locked position.

The low tension locking system assures that the lens barrel won't be harmed by over-enthusiastic tightening (or loosening) of the filter. The ability to quickly change the filter without having to thread/unthread should appeal to filter users. You'll find that you're more likely to use your filters when they can be mounted and removed this easily.

The Sony RX100 VI Quick Change Filter Adapter Kit 52mm is comprised of the following:

  • The receiver with custom 3M adhesive ring (Part 1- stays on the camera)
  • The filter holder (Part 2)
  • 52mm clip in style lens cap with tether.
  • A hinged lid container for the filter/filter holder/lens cap assembly for convenient storage.
  • Safe removal device.
  • Custom Install tool.


Kit includes:

HMC Ultraviolet (UV) Filter- removes Haze and helps protect your cameras from dust, moisture and scratches.

Without UV Filter With UV Filter


Circular Polarizing Filter (double coated)- dramatically deepens blue skies, reduces unwanted reflections on nonmetallic surfaces and saturates colors, especially outdoors. The filter can be rotated to achieve the desired effect.

Without Polarizer With Polarizer


ND8 Neutral Density Filter (double coated)- Neutral Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film or sensor. They have no effect on color balance.

Their primary uses are:

  • To enable slower shutter speeds to be used, to record movement or motion blur in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars.
  • To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background and improve bokeh. The ND8 will reduce the light transmission by 3 stops.

  • How much does the Lensmate RX100 VI Filter adapter weigh?
    The combined weight of the receiver and filter holder is about 3 grams. A thin 52mm polarizer weighs about 15 grams for a combined weight of 18 grams. With the vented hood added, total weight is 30 grams.

  • Will the camera be as "pocketable" with the RX100 VI Filter adapter added?
    You'd probably not even notice the difference - the receiver itself adds only 3mm or 1/8" to the camera.
  • I am going to a hot and humid climate, is the adhesive on the part that stays on the camera still going to hold?
    Yes, the adhesive is good to at least 200 deg F (~93 deg C). Humidity should not be a factor. If you want to read more about the adhesive it's 3M 9731.
  • Can I attach a conversion lens with the adapter?
    We recommend attaching only 52mm filters or macro lenses to the RX100 VI as a conversion lens weight could damage the quick change system or or put undue pressure on the cameras zoom lens.
  • Will using the Lensmate RX100 VI filter adapter void my warranty?
    If you need to send the camera in for service, just remove the receiver. It will come off cleanly with no residue left on the camera.
  • Can I reattach the filter receiver after removing it?

    We don't recommend it - the adhesive is usually compromised and won't have the bond strength it had. (We no longer sell the adhesive sticker alone because its placement on the receiver is critical and requires a fixture to position it precisely.)

    If you find the need to remove the receiver and would like to replace it, it's best to replace it with a new receiver which we now sell singley. When you return your used receiver, you will receive a full refund for the item.

  • Will the receiver on the camera lens affect the built in lens cover?
    No, the RX100 VI receiver does not affect the automatic lens cover in any way.
  • Can I use more than one filter at a time?
    You can stack 2 ND filters of normal depth, or one normal depth polarizer + ND filter with no vignetting.
  • I saw on the internet someone had trouble with the B+W XS-Pro circular polarizer which is a "slim" filter and the Quick Change Filter Adapter.

    For some reason the housing on the B+W XS-Pro circular polarizer is different than other polarizer brands, in that the back piece of glass, that does not move, is set closer to the threads on the backside. Our bayonet mount on Part 2 the actual filter holder uses tiny tabs, this B&W polarizer glass being set back in the housing is getting contact. The work around is to use a UV filter or a 52mm - 52mm step ring to screw the B&W polarizer to, so it's shallow backside has enough room.

    We have been selling our custom Quick Change Filter adapter Kit design for about 9 years now, on many different camera models, and since this single B&W Slim Polarizer is the exception to all standard filters that do fit - we feel the workaround is acceptable.

  • Will the quick change affect the built in flash? The new RX100 Mk VI has a much longer focal length than previous models - 200mm vs 70mm. This requires in an additional lens barrel section which is smaller in diameter than before, also having less surface area around the lens. Since the ID of the receiver cant be made smaller without vignetting occurring, its outer diameter is slightly larger than the lens barrel, which in some circumstances shows a small amount of flash blockage with Part 1 on the camera. Shown are samples at 24mm and 28mm. Of course at longer focal lengths there is no flash blockage.



Can I use Part 2 of the RX100 VI with your prior Quick Change System RX100 VA, RX100 IV, RX100 III, RX100 II, RX100 ?

Yes our Part 2 52mm Filter Holder will work with all these camera models, the Sony RX100 VI Part 1 is not interchangeable.

Can I use the Sony fitted case with the Quick Change system?
  • Yes you may use the Sony fitted case. To close the case you will need to remove Part 2 and whatever filter you might have attached, leaving Part 1 on the camera.
