An good purchase,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NiSi Ultra Thin DMC UV Filter For Canon G1X DMC UV Filter 14-Layers Multi Coating for Canon G1X Camera (No extra adapter ring is required) (Electronics)
I recently purchased a G1x with hood but soon realised that one could not use the hood with Canon's G1x filter adapter. As I noticed that there was a filter thread around the lens itself, I searched for a protective UV filter for the camera. I do not understand why Canon do not manufacture such a product but nevertheless found this one and decided to try it. I am very happy with it and note that, as in the product description, it does not cause vignetting even at the widest angle. The filter is very slim, neat and well finished and Canon's G1x case is sufficiently roomy to allow the filter to remain on the lens when the case is closed. I am now considering the purchase of a NiSi polarising filter for the camera.
I have since found that the Canon lens hood cannot be used with the filter attached, which is disappointing. However, in my view, lens protection is paramount. I have now ordered a polarising filter as a lens hood is redundant with one of these.
