Use Jar Openers for Stuck Lens Filters

Here’s a quick photo related life hack: if you have a lens filter that just won’t come off, try using a rubber jar opener to do the task. If you don’t have one already in your kitchen, there might be cheap ones at your local dollar store!

    For the mechanicly inclined using one of those oil filter removers that use the rubber belts would do pretty much the same job.

    I though would be about use them for a followfocus. Any tips on how to get a dent out of the filter ring the easy way?

    Yeah I’m with Chung Dha… I thought of this jar opener to be a really cheap way for follow focus

    I have always kept a couple of wide rubber bands in my bag. They’re not bulky, and they are very light.

    of course you could just do what photographers have been doing for years and like the previous poster also mentioned… keep a couple of good ‘ol fashioned rubber bands in your camera bag.
