    What exact model of lens are you using? If it's a digital compact camera, there's a chance that there are no accessories for that size available, especially if it's the retracting lens type.

    Generally, the screw thread filter size is written on the inside of the lens cap next to a symbol not dissimilar to a theta.

    Dpreview says that camera has a lens thread with an optional adaptor. It looks like there are some on eBay which would do it, but you're gonna need to use PayPal or something:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/52mm-UV-PL-DI...ryZ23780QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    If you want to get one elsewhere, you need to find the mm measurement of the screw thread. The advert indicates that it is 52mm, but that may be with some kind of adaptor.
