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. Round hoods are best used for long tele-photo shots and I feel this hood would be good when putting the SX40's super-zoom capability to use. This round hood when attached to the camera in its fully extended phase, it cuts out the corners of the photo like a toy-camera effect. It could be overcome by pressing the zoom button a bit or by collapsing the hood for wide angle shots. Again, whether it successfully reduces glare or not will be decided when shooting landscape shots. Will post an update about it latter.

THE LENS PEN, LENS CAP AND THE MICROFIBER CLOTH:
The lens cap in this kit fits perfectly over the lens with the adapter ring attached. It comes with a black string so that you could tie it to the neck strap or any other part of the camera and don't loose it. Now this kit comes with a lens pen to clean the lens of camera. But let me tell you that it is not an original lens pen. Before ordering this kit, I had already ordered a original LensPen LensPen NLP-1 which is absolutely brilliant in getting its job done. Therefore I did not feel the need to try or use the lens pen accompanying this kit and I don't think I will ever. But its good to keep one as an extra incase you lose your original lenspen. The microfiber cloth in the kit looks and feels nice. I am going to keep in my camera bag all the time to clean the body of camera from water, moisture, smudges and all other stuff you get on your camera. It would be useful to clean the parts of the camera other than the lens or LCD where you cannot use the lenspen.
Overall I can say that I am highly satisfied with the kit for the price that it is being offered. The only part of the kit that doesn't feel upto the mark may be the lenspen, but I would not consider that as it wouldn't have mattered to me because I already had a lenspen and didn't buy the kit keeping the lenspen in mind. As time passes, I would test the kit and post updates whenever possible.

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!

Ordered this for my older Canon SX30IS and everything fit perfectly. It did take
a few minutes to see how the adapter ring installed on the camera but it did fit
just fine. The filters also install easily. Good value for the money.

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.

I received the kit quickly from the seller. Works well with my SX30 IS. I bought this kit mainly for the adapter and polarizer filter. The adapter was easy to put on and the polarizer seems to work well, so far. I haven't used the lens hood, so can't comment on that. Very happy with my purchase.

Received it very quickly. The filters and adapter ring fit perfectly and snugly on my new Canon
Powershot SX40 HS. I like that you can use the hood on top of the filter without taking the filter off.

Excellent experience. Product exactly as advertised and arrived very quickly. I thought I needed 67mm filters but found that the 58mm filters work fine and are considerably cheaper.

I basically purchased this item because I need it a UV filter. When using the filter the quality of my pictures are poor; actually useless. I wished I had spent the extra money and purchased the Hoya UV filter. The only reason I'm giving it two stars is because I use the Microfiber Lens Cleaning Cloth.

I have an older cannon SX20 and this set of filters has sort of given the camera new life. The filters really improve its ability to capture good shots in bright sun. I shot a bunch of pictures at a 4th of July BBQ with the filters and they came out much better than the car show pictures I shot a couple weeks earlier with the same camera but no filters.
