      Causes vignetting

        Comments about Bower Adapter Tube for Canon G15 & G16 Digital Cameras - 58mm:

        I bought this filter adapter for my canon G16, unlike canon's model, this does not extend and retract with the lens when zooming in and out. You can unscrew the distal part of it, but when that's done and a filter is added, the lens can't zoom in all the way to the 140mm equivalent. There's no vignetting when the adapter is attached, however once a filter is attached (I got the Tiffen 58mm polarizer filter) there is lots of vignetting on the edges when the lens is at its 28mm equivalent! To prevent that the distal part has to be removed and the filter reattached, which is very bothersome.

          Comments about Bower Adapter Tube for Canon G15 & G16 Digital Cameras - 58mm:

          I'm using this adapter on my G15. It seems to fit fine and work well, and is metal, not plastic.The only big issue I had is that there were no instructions with it indicating I had to remove the ring surrounding the lens FIRST, at which point the actual mounting point is exposed. I was fiddling with it for a while until I noticed that the ring around lens might be removeable. Once I did that, all was well.I use it exclusively with a polarizer.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Bower Adapter Tube for Canon G15 & G16 Digital Cameras - 58mm:

              I shoot a lot of exterior nature timelapse with the G16 and wanted to be able to polarize, which this allows me to do.

              I was pleasantly surprised that there was no vignetting with both tubes on with the camera at it's widest focal length. Past versions were reported to have this problem.

              Be careful not to screw things down too tightly!

                  the only way to protect the lens is with this which is a pain to use and carry around,, makes the pocket-ability of the camera difficult… have never figured out why these cameras which are not cheap have no lens protection nor filter ability… this is the only way so if you want a polarizer ,ND,etc and cover for lens this is it. the canon model double in price is smaller and a little more practical,.,.,. neither recommend nor not recommend YOu decide

                    I had canon's adapter with a G15 that got lost, and this one with a G16. canon's own version was very loose, and spring loaded: if the release button is depressed, and you shake the camera, there is a chance of it rotating itself and come off.

                    this bower's adapter with G16: it fits very tight. but it sits above the camera's body. so even when it's completely clicked in place, there's still a gap and you can still see part of the metal that locks it in place. the one con I can think for it would be... more prone to dust getting inside.

                    even though the title says for g15 and g16, the marking on the tube only says g15, which means it was probably developed before g16 got released, and maybe there's just a slight different in size between g15 vs g16. However consider this: I still have the decorative ring from g15 that needs to remove in order to attach this tube. That thing fits perfectly with g16, with same level of looseness and what not...

                    better build quality than canon's own, even though it's just a metal tube.

                            Very well constructed and light. Great product for far less money than the Canon adapter. Front of hood is actually two 58mm threaded peices for choice in using.

                                This adapter does what two higher priced Canon items do but for a lot less money and it works just fine. I'm a big Canon fan and user but when it comes to accessories they are over priced and we all know it. I use this for filters and the canon tele-converter. At this price I highly recommend this Bowers adapter tube.
