Summary: The hood is handy for glare but vignetting is annoying. I needed the adapter to use the S2 IS with a flexible underwater housing. I fixed the original lens cap problem with clear nail polish. Apply several layers to the removable ring.
Summary: I use the LAH-DC20 to mount a uv haze filter to protect the lens and do away with the crummy lens cap that comes with the camera. Plus I can utilise the 58mm filters used with my other Canon cameras. Get this, you will be glad you did !
Pros: A must have for the S5 IS, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight
Summary: My Canon PowerShot S5 IS is such a great camera but the lens cap was a joke. It always fell off! Having this lens adapter allowed me to not only add a UV filter for protecting that great S5 lens but adding a REAL lens cap to the camera setup. Having this adapter gives some meat to this camera to hold it with my big hands and allowing for filters to be added with ease. It also makes the camera look better if that is inportant.
Summary: A very useful product if you plan to purchase additional lenses of filters for Canon S2IS-S5IS. It is required to mount on the above, however these lenses and filters are screw mounts. I have found it easier to have one for each lens to mount and dismount from camera body. It will cost more to do this, but will avoid possible cross threading. The adapter itself matches points on camera body with simple click on and off.
Summary: It works very well on my Canon S5IS. I really like the idea that the lens is now protected with the lens adapter and UV filter that attaches to it. The only drawback is the camera is no longer as compact as it was, but the the protection is well worth the increase in size.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Easy To Clean, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Summary: Very good so far! the product does what it`s intended for. So far i`m using it along with the tele-converter (TC-DC58B). It gives the advantage of using 58mm filters (though I haven`t used one yet) and solves the problem of the cover of Canon S5 IS that it`s constant falling. Only Pro's for it! Buy one!
