The most useless accessories I have: memory wallets (I have two), filters wrenchs and 40mm f2.8 lens hood.Forgot about the filter wrenches - they are worthless! Pipe wrenches, jar openers, rubber bands, and 100 other things all work better!
Ha, Ha, Ha, Dear mackguyver.
You are right, When I go to buy Filter Wrenches at my friend's Camera shop in my home town, He said to me = Forget it", and he take off his clean shoe ( which have rubber below of the shoe) , and put my lens with stuck filter ( UV Filter) to the rubber sole and turn the Lens = Ha, Ha, Ha---It work, Yes, I save 2 US Dollars. But he tell me as you say, , for Cir PL Filter, We must use the Big size rubber band, And Tell me that---DO NOT USE THE DIRTY/ MUDDY shoe in this case = Prohibit---Ha, Ha, Ha.
Nice to talk to you, Have a great day.
Dear Surapon, that's actually great advice! It may not have to be the bottom of a shoe, but a rubber matting will work too i imagine. I've struggled with tight filters before but have so far managed to get them loose by hand (took some patience though). Never thought they actually sold accessories to deal with this type of situation.
