      I put clear B+W filters on all my lenses since I don't buy any cheap lenses, and this is going on the G1 X with a protective filter. People complain about it being cheap, but it is resilient ABS material whereas third party adapters may be strong but don't take impacts very well. No issues with locked filter or being too tight when putting it on the camera. Put the filter on the adapter then pop it on the camera. Easy. Also great if you want to have multiple filters on their own adapter for quick changes.

      A filter adapter is necessary for the G1X, since it is marketed as a "pro" camera. This one works, but for $30, it could be made of metal, not cheap flimsy plastic. I can't imagine that it cost Canon more than a couple of dollars to have it made, so why the steep price tag? I guess it's possible Canon would say they made it from plastic to avoid damaging the lens when you put it on, and that's fine. But once again - why the steep price tag?

              Would have been better if it was made out of metal but does the job well. I bought a UV Filter for my G1X and I use it all the time. Love my G1X! Yes I would recommend it.

                Comments about Filter Adapter for Canon G1 X:

                Canon should have put standard 58mm threads on the lens to start with. But since they didn't, this allows me to add filters to my G1X. Some people complain that this is plastic but that's what keeps it from binding to either the lens or the filter. One thing of note: the larger lens diameter slightly interferes with the light from the pop-up flash causing a dark arc the bottom of photos; but that can be cropped out.

                          Now I can use close-up and polarizing filters with my G1 X.
                          One downside is that you can not use the sun shade with this mounted to the lens.

                              I expect the best from Canon. I was disappointed. Product is cheap plastic. Plastic is NOT the right material for filter threads. Price is outrageous. Manufacturing cost has got to be less than 0.01, how does Canon justify charging over [$] d o l l a r s for this???

                                            I use this adapter to attach protective UV filters or a polarizer. The UV filters offer continuous protection as opposed to the awkward snap-on lens cap; the polarizer does what all polarizers do. Although the material could be more durable, I don't find this as big a hitch as other reviewers -- it works. And price? Not that bad, really, although we'd all like to acquire accessories for less, I can live with it.

                                                  The adapter fits snugly onto the G1X. My circular polarizing filter screws firmly into the adapter. I have taken about a thousand photos and videos in New Hampshire's White Mountains and whale watching out of Plymouth, MA with excellent results in that the polarizer works as expected and there is no looseness or play in the adapter. The combination of adapter and polarizer on the camera fits perfectly into the leather case sold separately. One cannot use the lens cap that came with the camera once you attach the adapter, which is no problem as the case protects the front filter and I no longer have the bother of fiddling with the lens cap. I keep a cleaning cloth in my back pocket when shooting and clean any dust particles from the filter as required.

                                                      Comments about Filter Adapter for Canon G1 X:

                                                      I put clear B+W filters on all my lenses since I don't buy any cheap lenses, and this is going on the G1 X with a protective filter. People complain about it being cheap, but it is resilient ABS material whereas third party adapters may be strong but don't take impacts very well. No issues with locked filter or being too tight when putting it on the camera. Put the filter on the adapter then pop it on the camera. Easy. Also great if you want to have multiple filters on their own adapter for quick changes.

                                                          I got the filter adapter so I can use my 58mm close-up lenses and polarizer. It was a quick twist to put on and the lenses work fine. I think for what it is, this adapter should have been included with the camera and not be an expensive add on. If you have a G1X, and want to use a polarizer or other types of filters, this is a only good way to do it.

                                                          So Canon again made lens without UV filter on board and we need to use external filter holders...
                                                          This is sad.
                                                          I bought this adapter and i was in hope that will be solid metal but unfortunately this is weak plastic. And not strong at all.
                                                          So be careful with this adapter. This is not the same quality like G1X camera...

                                                              You'd think that Canon's accessories would be the best, but you're better off buying after market. Their adaptor rings for all of the G-series are made of cast plastic, never fit snuggly onto the camera and easily accidentally unlock. This one is no exception. For such poor quality, you'd expect them to charge less.

                                                                I've gone from the 350D to the 5D MKII. But for a recent strictly tourist trip to Paris with my wife I chose to travel light, so I bought the G1X. The G1X is a FANTASTIC camera.But as for any street-outdoors good photographic endeavor, it needs a polarising filter. And this is where Canon drop-to-drop accessories availability policies are unacceptable: to attach a polarising filter to the G1X you need this Out of Stock thing. And it is not available with B&H only, I searched all photo stores in Paris and I couldn't find it.So there's when a $ otherwise remakable machine fails, because it lacks a cheapo plastic accesory.As ever, Canon cannot do it absolutely right.

                                                                  This accessory is needed to mount 58mm filters and items such as close-up adapters on the G1X. It does its job with those attachments, but I am not sure about its longevity - it appears to be made of plastic. I have tried it also with a Canon 0.7x wideangle attachment, which is considerably heavier than a filter, and it still works, but appears to flex very slightly under the weight.

                                                                      After scratching the lens on my G9, I was really happy to see this adapter on the G1X. I already had an assortment of 58mm filters making this camera even more versatile.
