I saw this website
http://www.nextphoto.net/SP550.htm#
And the seller claims the adapter will also work on my camera since it looks almost identical to the Olympus model. "Identical" isn't good enough for mr. Gordon, besides the extra megapixel, how are the Fiji and Olympus models different? Does the Olympus have a lens filter thread?

Hi Shutter Puppy, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

First things first: I believe the S8000fd is based on the SP-560UZ, so you'd have to find out if this filter is compatible with the 560. I think the 560 lens is the same as the 550 though, so you should be ok.

Also remember, although the S8000fd appears to be absed on the same shell as the 560UZ, there are some cosmetic differences, and this could include the thread you're after.

I don't have the S8000fd with me anymore, so can't say for sure, but looking at my photos of it, I'd say there's what looks like a filter thread on the barrel. I can't say for sure if this will work with your filter though.

Perhaps the seller could offer a refund if it doesn't work?

Gordon
