Not for Filters

 

Does not work with filters. With lens at wide angle setting, the tube creates corner shadows and also casts a shadow on the image with flash. At the telephoto extreme, the lens runs into the filter before full extension.

Easy To Use,Excellent Sound,Portable

Poor Design

LA-DC58K Adapter adds to Canon G10 uses

 

This adapter allows use of a polarizer (and other Filters), and it adapts Canon's teleconverter to the G10.

Durable,Easily Interchangeable,Lightweight,Strong Construction

Consumer review by:

Good addition for digital cameras.

 

I bought this lens converter for my Canon PowerShot G3, which has a 4x zoom. The convert makes the lens the equivalent of a 6x zoom. The purchase price was $60 on eBay, which included the required adapter.

Great image quality and good addition of range

Can't use filters. Vignetting except near full zoom

Canon TC-DC58N Teleconverter Lens for Powershot G3 Digital Camera

 

This is a nice, compact teleconverter to use with the G3 - G6 cameras. It's compact and reasonably lightweight. The converter is easily attached to the G6 (my camera) with the appropriate adapter. Images taken with the teleconverter are reasonably...

Compact, lightweight, easy to work with, does not restrict light.

Slightly soft in edges, color shift from built-in lens.

Canon TC-DC58N Teleconverter Lens for Powershot G3 Digital Camera

 

I really like this lens. It's nice add-on to my beloved Canon G3 camera, and very useful when I tried to get some shoots on wild animals. It's huge, compared to the camera itself, and I have to get a seperate bad for the lens, but it makes you look...

Works perfectly with converter and the camera.

None.

Canon TC-DC58N Teleconverter Lens for Powershot G3 Digital Camera

 

The 1.75x TC-DC58N telephoto lens is a nice addition to the Canon G3/G5. The camera is HUGE with the attachment, but it looks pretty cool. Filters have to be attached to the backside of the lens between the lens adapter and the lens itself.

Works with same adapter used by wide angle lens ; Comes in a nice leather carry pouch

Would be nice if it were 2x, but 1.75 isn't bad ; heavy

WC-DC58N Wide Angle Lens Converter

 

Even though there are weaknesses as described, because of the versatility of my camera (Powershot G5) I am able to compensate for those issues. Switching to manual focusing should resolve that issue and if a flash is needed, I can attach one.

Canon quality lens; comes with a nice drawstring bag for protection. Pictures are defintely wider then with standard lens

Because of the size, auto focusing may not be possible. Also, built-in flash pictures WILL cast a shadow on the lower right of every photo (on my Canon Powershot G5), also due to the lens size

WC-DC58N Wide Angle Lens Converter

 

I love this lense. It makes taking photos with my beloved Canon G3 even more fun. It comes especially handly when I tried to take some photos of a large waterfall with rainbow. The resulted picture looks terrific. It's huge, compared to the camera...

Works perfectly with the camera

WC-DC58N Wide Angle Lens Converter

 

I was quite surprised by how well this wide angle converter works. It's sharp and clear. The only negatives are it's size and the increased barrel distortion it introduces (curvature of vertical objects), although some barrel distortion is to be...

Easy to use, excellent quality

Bulky, no filter threads, barrel distortion is increased

WC-DC58N Wide Angle Lens Converter

 

Overall, this is a very nice lens. It comes with its own lens bag and has caps for both front and back. Would be better if the front cap fit a bit more snugly since I'm afraid of it coming off in the bag. Besides that, no other problems.

Nice lens, takes great wide angle pictures

Very bulky, but this is to be expected

Product Specifications

To broaden the angle of your view, the Wide Converter WC-DC58N is available for the G3. Or if you want to pull back a little more, Tele-converter TC-DC58N is available. Both accessories require Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58B to be used with the camera.
