Bower Filter Adapter for Select Canon SX Cameras

You Pay: $8.98
Product Highlights
  • For the Canon SX30, SX40 and SX50 Cameras

The Filter Adapter for Select Canon SX Cameras from Bower is used to mount a 67mm filter to the lens barrel of a lens mounted on a Canon SX30, SX40 or SX50 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.

Gotta have if you want to use a filter

I wanted the original Canon adaptor, but it was out of stock, plus the lower price of this one means I could get the Canon Lens Hood AND a filter adaptor for less money than some other websites wanted for just one or the other alone.

The lower price also means you could buy more than one, so you don't have to fiddle with removing and installing different filters, you could just leave each adaptor on each filter and then can quickly change from one filter to another.

So far, no problems with it.

You must have this adaptor to attach any lens filters to the Canon SX30is; however, it is quite easy to misalign the threads when adding a filter, making it extremely difficult to remove the filter. Also, you cannot attach this ring (or any filters) when using the lens hood, and in my opinion. the lens hood is more useful. I bought a set of Opteka filters to go with this ring adaptor (from another site) and will be returning them as they do very little, if anything, to improve the quality of my photos. I keep trying to make my wonderful bridge camera do things that an SLR can do, but not all things are possible!

      This adapter has performed pitifully since the start, now it is broken. It never was easy to align and never felt tight.

          Pops off and never stays on

            Comments about Bower Filter Adapter for Select Canon SX Cameras:

            The Canon adaptor was not available when I ordered this one (I was due to travel just a few days before its delivery)

            Twice, after very carefully attaching it to my Canon PowerShot SX50 HS camera, this adapter has popped off, sending my B+W Kaesemann MRC Nano filter crashing five-and-a-half feet to the ground. Should I have tried a third time to prove that B+W makes amazingly durable filters?

            Thankfully, that Bower White Elephant is lightweight, so carrying it on my two-month travels through Europe was not a problem. I have put it aside.

            Buy it if you like taking risks.

                The Adapter was easy to install on my SX50. It held my new 67mm UV filter which I purchased to protect the lens and provide a UV filter for the camera.

                  This adapter engages with Canon camera SX50 but it keeps popping off and the UV tolerances are rather sloppy / gritty fitting and I send it back with the intent of getting a replacement. Not satisfied with this accessory for this camera.

                      Comments about Bower Filter Adapter for Select Canon SX Cameras:

                      In a nutshell: this Bower adapter is difficult to mount and it's flimsy. So, if you're going to use it to hold a filter and NEVER touch it again, MAYBE will last. But if you're planning to change filters or god forbid, to mount a polarizer... be ready for a nasty surprise: it WILL break. Mine broke almost immediately, despite the extremely careful way I handled it. Did I get a bad one? Who knows. Anyway I'm not going to get another one for sure.

                            This adapter is made of plastic and came slightly warped which makes it challenging to get it to attach to the SX50HS lens. It is inexpensive so thats the attraction.

                              I use it to hold permanently an UV filter in front of my SX50 and I have no complains whatsoever. I don't know if the Canon filter adapter would be a better buy, in terms of sturdiness, in case of frequent usage of different filters, though.

                                          Used to add a 67mm filters to the front of a Canon SX20-IS digital camera. Fit well, good and snug. Would be better if it were made from metal instead of plastic. I'm concerned the fine threads will be crossed.

                                              You must have this adaptor to attach any lens filters to the Canon SX30is; however, it is quite easy to misalign the threads when adding a filter, making it extremely difficult to remove the filter. Also, you cannot attach this ring (or any filters) when using the lens hood, and in my opinion. the lens hood is more useful. I bought a set of Opteka filters to go with this ring adaptor (from another site) and will be returning them as they do very little, if anything, to improve the quality of my photos. I keep trying to make my wonderful bridge camera do things that an SLR can do, but not all things are possible!

                                                      This product is very usefull if you want to had a lens filter at the end of your zoom. This adapter is less expensive then the one made by canon himself and it does the same job.

                                                      I wanted the original Canon adaptor, but it was out of stock, plus the lower price of this one means I could get the Canon Lens Hood AND a filter adaptor for less money than some other websites wanted for just one or the other alone.

                                                      The lower price also means you could buy more than one, so you don't have to fiddle with removing and installing different filters, you could just leave each adaptor on each filter and then can quickly change from one filter to another.

                                                      So far, no problems with it.
