    I wanted to increase the repertoire of my Panasonic camcorder. I had some 52 mm lenses and wanted to add a telephoto lens. This step up ring was the glue to bring the two together. The product does what it says it will do. I am now able to add whatever filters I want and enjoy the results produced. A great addition to any Panasonic camcorder owner with a 43 mm lens opening.

    Beware, this ring damaged my camera. After first removing it from my camera, I noticed some debris in my camera's lens threads. The male, 43mm, outer, top-most ring of this step-up adapter has aluminum machining burrs that had acted like a miniature hacksaw. You could file your nails with them. The burrs had eaten away at my camera's plastic lens threads. These burrs were left on the step-up ring by sloppy manufacturing practices and poor quality control. My particular "General Brand" ring was made by Bower.

                      The outer threads on the 43mm ring has two long areas that feel like a miniature hacksaw. I only noticed that fact after installation of the ring chewed the threads on my camera. Don't buy this if you value your camera.

                          Came with Raynox wide angle lens I purchased. Since it was free, for the money can't really beat it. Seriously, works great and does it's job.

                            I use step up/step down rings to adapt a variety of filters and accesspry lenses to my cameras. Use this one to attach a telephoto to my Olympus C-5050. Works great, machined correctly, makes my life easier.

                              If purchasing the recommended Raynox WA lens for a HV20,30 or 40, the 52mm lens size is is a better choice than the 43mm. You need the step up ring in order the screw the lens on to the camera.

                                                I bought this adapter to fit a teleconversion lens to my canon HV30 (also bought at BH).

                                                Good Quality ring, fits well on my camera.

                                                        It's a simple product with a simple job so not much to say other than it works. I use it to attach my Raynox DCR-6600Pro wide angles lens to my Canon HV30 camcorder.

                                                        If you need an adapter that meets your basical needs at a low price, this one!
                                                        Now, if you want something well done made or luxury, has many other options. I have several of them that I serve well both in use in SLR lenses as in camcorders.

                                                            It works well as an adapter between me camera (Canon HV20 with a 43mm lens) and my new 52mm wide-angle lens.
