I bought this set for my new Canon Powershot SX50 HS and find that this set of 58mm diameter bayonet adapter ring and filters all fit perfectly on the camera without any vignetting effects (the SX50 HS does not really need 67mm adapter rings and filters, although those were officially recommended in the specifications). To fit the adapter ring, it's best to put the camera on the table with lens facing up so that you can look down on it and line up the adapter ring correctly before rotating it into place. On my camera, the adapter ring stays on the lens 24/7 with a UV filter attached.

Except for the fluorescent filter which is redundant, due to the camera being able to self-correct for fluorescent lighting, the other 2 filters are usable. However, I decided not to use the UV filter supplied, as it is not coated at all - there's no point placing a sheet of plain UV glass in front of your multi-coated lens - you're really wasting all the benefits of your multi-coated optics. Instead I bought a new 58mm Hoya multi-coated UV filter for everyday use and am happy with the picture quality.

The circular polarizer is perfectly usable though, as all other circular polarizers in the market are also not multi-coated as well. You will need to use the new lens cap, as the original Canon lens cap no longer fits once you have attached the adapter ring and a filter. The lens hood fits perfectly, but I decided not to use it as well. The microfiber cloth is adequate and the velcro-lined filter pouch is convenient. Overall, for this set I find the adapter ring, circular polarizer filter, lens cap and the velcro-lined filter pouch useful.

I must have to say that the delivery of the product was faster than expected. It just took 4 days for it to land in P.O. Box. Now I have just recently bought the SX40 HS and I needed the basic filter kit, atleast the UV filter to protect my camera lens. Even though there were no reviews for this product, I checked the other products offered by this seller and found out that the reviews were positive. That helped me gain some confidence about the quality of the products being offered. So I went ahead and ordered the kit.

THE FILTER KIT:
The kit has an adapter ring which fits perfectly over the lens for attaching hood or other filters. The filter kit comes nicely packed in a small elegant black case with each filter being carefully packed in plastic bag and placed in the kit. The case looks very nice and is quite compact, so you can keep it in your camera bag and carry along. The adapter ring and the filters are made of good quality metal & you can feel real weight when you handle them. They are not heavy at all, but the weight lets you know that they are made of metal and not some flimsy plastic. Right now, I haven't tested the filters much, so I can't really speak about the quality of the filters. Will be clicking some photos and comparing the quality and posting it in updates.

THE HOOD:
The hood as mentioned has 3 in 1 collapsible design, is round and made of rubber. Since its made of rubber you can't expect it to do much to protect the camera when it is subjected to a fall. On the other hand this rubber hood is much easier to handle and store when compared to a plastic hood. The other day I was reading about petal[flower] hoods and round hoods and they both serve different purposes.

Bought this bundle for my Canon SX40HS. The main reason for this purchase was to obtain the adapter ring and filters, they all fit perfectly and using one is a MUST for protecting your lens. The threaded rings are metal, as described, and I like that they can be stacked. The rubber, collapsible hood is a nice item to have, very convenient in that it can be adjusted for the situation. It does impose on your shot when the lens is at full wide angle, so be watchful for that. It only takes a little zoom to correct this though. The lens cap in this set is MUCH better than the OEM that I received, this one is considerably easier to use, especially for large/male fingers. It fits better too, more secure. The Lens Pen and cleaning cloth are nice bonuses, really pleased with the value of this set. Have bought several items from DigitalGoja, all good - great seller!

This is a very good set indeed. Delivery was quick (4 days) and items themselves are of very good quality. I especially liked the bonus filter wallet. Adapter fits perfectly, cloth cleans great, filters do the job, hood sits tight. Not sure I'll use the rubber hood though. Overall - I'm very happy with the item and seller.

The Vivitar filters work fine as Vivitar filters should work. Obviously not at the same level of quality and light filtering as the far more expensive Hoya or Sigma, but good enough in bright light conditions. The adapter ring works great and is very easy to fit. The filters screw on easily and fit very well. The Polarizer filter is nice, but I am not sure I see a significant difference in reflections when I use it. That could be most certainly a reflection of my expertise in using filters rather than the filter itself. Have not tested the Florescent filter, but I think it has limited use since the SX 40 has automatic white balance and can correct the effect of Florescent lighting very well. The filter pouch is very nice and holds the filters well.

The lens cap is great and fits very well. The lens cap chord can be improved, since the two threads separate and get in the way. I used a simple self shrinking silicone sleeve on the chord to make it more manageable. The original canons lens cap has a nice clip that lets you clip the lens cap to the camera belt when it is off the lens. This one does not have that feature and was dangling loose when I took the lens cap off the lens. I fixed that by superglueing an old plastic clip on to the front of the lens cap.

The lens hood is useful to cut glare out, but it comes in the way of the autofocus beam and causes vignetting at 24 mm. You have to zoom out to atleast 30mm before you get rid of vignetting. I tried various other lens hoods, and the only one that does not cause vignetting is the equivalent of the original canon lens hood (LH- DC 60). However with the LH-DC 60 one cannot attach any filters. So if you want only a hood and no filters, go for that.

The microfiber cloth is very nice and useful.
