Re: A few more Newbie questions

My Cannonete 35mm point and shoot has the lens threaded for any filter 
that you want.  The only problem is that it is a smaller size than the 
normal filter that the stores alwas carry.  I have to special order 
filters for it.  I have had this camera for over 18 years and it has given 
me good service.
