Summary: Works great to acheive x18 magnification, with your camera. Does have limited angular view (as expected), when you are not try to get long range shots. Easily cropped/fixed with photoshop software.
Summary: Not sure if there are those out there that still use the older S5 IS type of cameras. I got this with mine when I purchased. It is clearer than using the digital zoom for sure. It does work well and I have used it to get more reach out of my camera.
Summary: I purchased this lens several years ago now. It is never removed from my camera unless I have a close up picture to take. On close up pictures a lens circle will appear on your pictures if you do not remove. The lens very quickly and easily clicks on and off without effort.
Summary: This is a great tele converter. It does not slow down the the auto focus. It works with longer focal length. Shortest focal length will produce vignetting BUT tele converter is designed to maximize the focal length, so when you need shorter focal length, take it off from your camera to avoid...
Summary: I purchased the Canon TC-DC588 Tele Converter Lens and adaptor to use with my Canon Powershot S5IS camera to take on my "dream vacation" to Alaska. I found the lens quite handy for taking close up views of scenery and wildlife.
Summary: Not an ideal situation as the lens restricks the camera minimum zoom about 1/3. So minimum zoom is no longer the minimum. But it takes great indoor shots without a flash so I expect better things when outside. Also note that a polarizer that fit the adapter does not fit this lens.
Summary: We got this with the Canon LAH-DC20 adapter and hood. Have to have the adpater. We were at the beach and with just the camera zoom of 12x we could not see details on the pier that was way down the beach or much of a boat way out on the horizon.
