Add filters to your Lumia 1020 (or Nokia 808)

  • Hi

    This is a quick tutorial to add filters (UV, close-up, ND, etc.) on your Lumia 1020 or Nokia 808. I've started this with the 808, inspired by Al Reynolds (@ibat400 on Twitter) experiments.

    The idea is to take a hard case (for the 808) or the grip (for the 1020) and to glue an adapter ring on it ; filters will be screwed on that adapter.

    For the 808, I used a 49-->52mm step-up adapter (my filters are 52mm).



    The adapter ring is glued on the case with sugru (sugru.com). Just clean your hands before touching the device, to avoid to leave dirty fingerprints :)

    For the 1020, it's a bit different. The lens is not centered in the camera island. For macro lenses, to avoid a fall-off, one should recenter the filter on the camera lens, not the camera island. Richard Dorman (@sheridan01) has come to the same conclusion before me.

    To achieve that, I've chosen the biggest diameter for the adapter ring. According to me, it's 62mm. So I have a step-down adapter for the 1020 : 62-->52mm.

    Glued like this, always with sugru:



    As you can see, there is an offset. 2 advantages: you can use the flash if no filter is mounted. And with macro lenses, they are as centered as possible.

    One warning for the camera grip: adding that ring will stiffen the grip and removing the camera grip will become much harder. I've finally found a technique to remove it, but if I have the opportunity, I'll get another grip to have one for filters, another for P&S (with easy removal).




    The filters I own are: UV, polarizer, close-up, ND. They all work great with the 808 and the 1020  ;D

  • Great tutorial! I will look for a good case to apply this (not sure if it will be a Nokia Camera Grip...).

    Did you bought the material online or from local stores?

    We also need now some examples on with and without special lenses.   ^-^  Do you know any lenses that will fit there and help avoiding spotlights to cause reflexes on the lenses?

  • I bought all the hardware online, from French stores. I forgot to say:
    1. One 5g sachet of Sugru is enough: I bought the pack of 3 and kept it in the fridge. After the setup for the 808 and the 1020, I still have a 5g sachet left
    2. You can of course choose filters with a different diameter (greater than mine)
    3. Buy only quality filters (I recommend Hoya and B+W)

    For the spotlight/flare, the lens hood reduce it a bit yes.

  • Hey Massis,
    Thanks for the tutorial, pretty amazing what you did with your 808 and 1020 :Thumbs

    Doing something like this, is quite tempting to myself too... I didn't do it so far, because I think I just wouldn't carry around the filters with me enough (same reason why I don't have a DSLR).

    Btw. if anyone is looking for a simpler solution, I added a picture of my attempt as an attachement
     :))

    That is very high-tech mate!  ;D  I'm thinking on creating something similar to what Massis created but I wanted to do it on a case, not a camera grip.  Have you guys seen any case for the Lumia 1020 that is not the Camera Grip and not the wireless charger?

  • Great work Daniel  ;D But actually, with the polarizer, the rubber bands would be difficult to use.

    My 808 setup can be duplicated for the 1020 (ie, not on the grip); there are hard cases, for instance:
