    Default 2 Questions.. =D

    Hi guys!!

    1) I went to Sim Lim to look for lens converter for Canon S5 IS.
    Then the person asked me to get "Vitacon 0.5X Wide(58mm)" with Marco Attachment.

    Is this brand or rather, is this lens good?
    Is it recommended to buy?

    Any advices from anyone?

    __________________________________________________ _______________________

    2) Is there any 3rd party lens hood for Canon S5 IS?
    Or there is only the original one?

    Many Thanks in advance...

    Vitacon is a brand for Low End and cheap Lenses

    Is it recommended to buy?
    No

    Any advices from anyone?

    Get the Raynox DCR6600PRO 52mm or 58mm. (Made in Japan)
    Also get an adapter for the WA Lens, either a Raynox (52mm/58mm) or a Lensmate (52mm/58mm)(Cannot find in SG must buy online at lensmateonline.com)
    or Canon Original Adapter+Hood

    Does singapore have Raynox DCR6600PRO 52mm or 58mm?
    If yes, where can I find it?

    By the way, is canon original wide angle lens good?

    I've already get canon lens adapter which comes with a hood.

    For Raynox products in Singapore, use this site, think they are the only ones carrying in Singapore, but I'm not too sure about that last piece of information. Otherwise you can always order online on Ebay, etc.

    By the way, I'm not quite sure how to see the measurement of lens adapter, lens hood and lens converter.

    I'm using the canon original lens adapter(LA-DC58E) and lens hood(LH-DC40)

    But I'm not sure about the measurement..
    Can anyone let me know?

    Look at the manual or paper that came with the Adapter+hood. Should have the info there.
