        Comments about Canon FA-DC58E Filter Adapter for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

        A very overpriced piece of engineering. The adapter is made of plastic, and hence at risk of breakage. Due to the difference in materials, I am constantly worried of mis-threading the metal filter and ruining the plastic adapter. However, it does the job it is intended to do. If they were $, as they should be, one could put one on each filter for quick changes of filters.

        Comments about Canon FA-DC58E Filter Adapter for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

        It does the job, but feels quite fragile. For the price, they should have put at least a couple in the big box. The first time I used it my filter wouldn't unscrew. The only way to apply force was to take the adapter off the camera, but it still wouldn't budge. Eventually I warmed the adapter to expand it, and that worked. Metal screwing into plastic isn't great. But this (and a hood) really should have come with the camera - not that you can use both at the same time. But what choice do we have?

          It is a small attachment that allows you to use filters. It is pricey for what it is but get it if you want to use filters.

          Comments about Canon FA-DC58E Filter Adapter for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

          Need this for G1X2 in order to use filters, no alternatives to select from so was stuck if I want to use filters - price is exorbitant for what it is!! It fits well on the camera and does the job - just wish it was less pricey. Price is the reason for only 3 stars.

              Comments about Canon FA-DC58E Filter Adapter for PowerShot G1 X Mark II Digital Camera:

              The only thing "wrong" with this is that it wasn't included in the price of the camera. It is the means of attaching a filter to the G1X Mark II, and it certainly gets the job done well. It is very quick and easy to pop onto the camera.
