I just dont understand why Canon made this item in plastic. Would have bought a metal one but i heard there are some distortion issues and i thought canon name would be better. I wish bh had the lens in stock, I heard it's a pretty nifty item to own. I use this adapter with the wide angle, lens is also nice but wish it was a bit wider and there is no macro. Still love my G9.best camera i ever had.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is a simple piece of plastic that easily clicks into place on the camera and has a screw thread on the other side. So you can attach various filters, teleconverters, or wide angle lenses. I used it with an A710IS.
The color doesn't match my camera, but I guess it fits several different cameras, some of which might have been available in different colors. But if your camera is black, it will match.
When attached to the camera, it is ever so slightly loose. That hasn't caused a problem for me at all, but it feels like it could have been a little tighter.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This is a simple plastic tube. It allows the mounting ofauxiliary lenses to the body of the Canon A700 or similarmodels. The existing camera lens extends into it while it ismounted. There are additional uses for this accessory whichare not mentioned by Canon or by retailers. When theunit is attached without any lenses it functions as a shadehood. Additionally, it will accommodate 58mm filters andlens caps. Granted, it will look pretty dorky mounted onyour camera by itself without an auxiliary lens, but if youwish to explore filter use and find shade hoods useful, thisis a must have accessory.
