Product Highlights
  • For the G10, 11, 12

The Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC58B for the G10, 11, 12 is used to mount 58mm filters to the lens barrels of the cameras. The advantage of this adapter is that it adjusts as you change the zoom angle of the lens. In this way, vignetting (the darkening of the corners in the image) is eliminated.

    I bought this product so that I could use a infrared filter on my G10. It slips onto the camera easily and is as firm as the original lens ring which has to be removed before you can put on the adapter. With the adapter on I've noticed no vignetting on my pictures and the lens zoom works flawlessly. The only issue now is that I need a wider camera case so that I can keep this on the camera all the time.

    I use this adapter with my G11. It works well to hold the filters. HOWEVER, the release button is easy to press by mistake when handling the camera, and with the added weight of a filter or two on the end, the adapter is all the more likely to just fall off. I learned this the hard way when my adapter, UV filter, and circular polarizing filter took a dive off a bridge while I was taking some shots, an expensive mistake. Be aware of this and be careful!

      Comments about Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC58B:

      This provides the ability to add a clear or haze filter to protect the lens and a circular polarizer when conditions ask for it. Added a 58 MM lens cap so I can leave the filter in place. The filter adapter for the Canon G1X is much simpler (a plastic ring) and does the same thing. But, both work so I cannot complain.

        My Canon G11 is a great camera for casual travel, however it neds a polarizer when used for landscape shots. The older Canon 2-part filter adapter was a pain, because I had to switch parts for tele or woide angle. The new, auto-adjust adapter solves that problem!

          Comments about Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC58B:

          If you plan to use filters with the G12 camera, the FA-DC58B would appear to be an absolutely necessary accessory. I looked at several after-market accessories designed to allow use of filters with the G12. Some were two-part add ons that required the use of one or both screw together barrels depending on the zoom factor of the lens. Higher zoom...add the second barrel section. Some were one piece but required the use of much larger filters, which we all know can be much more expensive. The Canon designed and built FA-DC58B fits snuggly to the camera, expands or retracts with the camera lens zoom action, and allows the use of common 58mm filters you may already own for use on other standard Canon lenses. I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend this adapter to others wanting to add optional filters for use with the Powershot G12

            I use it on a PowerShot G15 and while a tiny bit loose it holds a circular polarizer and a UV filter nicely. It is no more visible in the view finder than the fully extended lens, and I consider it essential to have the filters mounted at all times. This is a highly recommend accessory.

              Comments about Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC58B:

              I bought this product not only to adapt different filters to my new camara. I wanted to protect the objective because my other 2 camaras similar like the G12 were damaged because of the dust and sand that entered to the objective. This filter covers completely the total lenght of the lenses, so it is very safe for the camara.The cons are that if you want to use the camera flash you have to remove it because it blocks a quarter of the flash light. Also if you want to focus through the viewfinder you have to remove it because it blocks also the vision.Finally, it increases the volume of the camara making it look bigger and more pro, but it´s not so easy to carry in your pocket.

              Comments about Canon Filter Adapter FA-DC58B:

              If you absolutely have to put a filter on your G series Canon, this is really your only option. Knowing that the FA-DC58B is made of plastic, I ordered the aluminum adapter (filter & telephoto) by Bower and was extremely disappointed (vignetting, two-piece design means that you can't have both pieces on without it, and with only one piece on, you can't zoom). The only way that the FA-DC58B is better is the spring mechanism that allows it to retract with the camera lens. It is cheaply made and feels so, but works for the intended purpose. NOTE: if you are planning on using this adapter with flash photography, you will need an external flash as the built-in makes a "black hole" in your photos with this adapter...

              You don't want to leave your lens naked. I bought this adapter so I can add a UV filter to my Canon G12. I use the camera for work under varied weather conditions. It does the job. What I can't understand is how a company like Canon can make a product like this that significantly obstructs the viewfinder. That's why this cannot be a 5 star product.I use the LCD screen so that really was not a major issue. The bottom line: If you have the G12, you need this adapter even with the serious flaw.

                I bought this for my Canon G12 to use with a polarizer. It's a great little thing to have, and while it holds any 58mm filter, I said it was an important accerssory because it's important to shoot with a polarizer. The adapter attaches very securely to the camera. It is small enough to fit into a very small camera bag as long as you are using one that is somewhat larger than the camera. I'm very glad I got it and I recommend it without reservation.

                    While it is plastic rather than metal, it looks to function well, and I just hope it's the type of polymer that holds up well (some do better than soft metals). Lightweight, and fits tight.
                    I purchased a G-series camera partly because it is one of few non-SLRs that can accept filters, like the polarizer or graduated neutral density.
                    This short filter adpater seems to create less problems than the adapter for lenses, based on several other reviews.

                      Now it's time to add to the filter collection and thus add to the capabilites of the G12.

                      The adapter works well - and makes my G12 look like a small DSLR. The addition of being able to use 58mm filters is huge! However - the adapter ring flares out a bit and covers part of the built-in flash - and a dark spot is evident on each picture taken with flash. I would still recommed this highly though. A solution would be to use a flash mounted on the hot-shoe.

                        Works great for adding filter effects on the Powershot "G" series cameras. I do mostly landscape photography, and a polarizing filter is important to me. The adapter moves in and out with the lens so I leave it on most of the time with a 58mm lens cap.

                          Really useful accessory as it adjusts with the lens unlike the two-piece Canon telephoto lens adapter.

                            This allows me to mount a 58mm filter and wide angle lens hood on my G12 and make my camera look like a little DSLR. Way cool. When zoomed all the way out, the filter adapter zooms with the lens. This is even cooler. It's too bad that other manufacturers don't think of innovative products like this. I just wish that Canon would make a battery grip for this camera!
