Hi guys, new to this forum!

Started photography last year, with my Canon Powershot SX30 IS.
Love this camera, not getting a DSLR at the moment,
but if i happen to came across a good second hand 500D, willing to get it !

Anyway, for the start, want to ask you guys here,
where is possible to get a 58mm adapter ring for my camera?
only manage to find online, anyone here know where can i get it?

Cheers!

And just showing my humble supermoon shot on 19/3/2011 with my SX30IS

Nice shot... I too have the 30is.. have also gone around almost whole of sg looking for a similar adapter but to no avail.. the closest I got was the FA-DC67A 67mm from canon Singapore.. you might want to check with them regarding stock..
Managed to get the LH-DC60 lens hood from usa. Apparently Singapore don't have any stock as well..
All I can said is getting accessories for the sx30is is like looking for a needle in a haysack..
It seems like shops are just eager to sell the camera itself and not the accessories.. just my two cents worth...

Oh ya.. one more thing.. do not attempt to screw a normal 52mm filter onto the grooves at the front of the lens.. it seems like those are parallel lines and not screw lines.. also you might find a bit of vignette with fully zoomed out..

thanks!

isn't the 67mm hard to get lens? Cos most of the macro lens and HD wide angle lens i found online only comes with 58mm and not 67mm.
so was looking for a 58mm adapter. Im getting a hood through online too, and also a flash diffuser.

agree, sx30is is a good camera, but sad that most shops don't carry the accessories.

is it recommended to have a external flash for it? Cos i do outdoor and indoor shoots. and i dont really like the built-in flash.

Hi, don't quite get your question... what do you mean by lens? The sx30is cannot change lens one.. but if you are talking about filter, then 67mm shouldn't be a problem. Seen a lot of shops carrying it.
Just to caution you about the hood.. dunno which one you are buying but if it's third party just make sure it's the same design as the LH-DC60. Otherwise you might get vignette when you are fully zoomed out.
As for flash I guess it's up to you bah.. I have the 270ex which is rather handy in taking shots at low light indoor conditions.. love the bounce feature.. am currently eyeing the 320ex or 580exII reason being more functions and also the ability to swivel horizontally but no doubt more ex too..
If you wanna.. then perhaps you can rent a unit a day or two before deciding to get an external flash or not.. cheers..

Ah, this is great! Thanks for the website :)

Means after attaching the adapter + filter, the hood cannot be use?

Cannot.. cos the adapter uses the same groves as the hood...

The 380 is quite an old flash isn't it? Not sure if it's compatible with the newer cameras..

yeap its a old flash, im looking for a small and cheap flash for now, or should i wait for 270EX II ? cos for my powershot, i don't really need a powerful flash, just a beginner range one will do! Need 1 as i do both indoor & outdoor night shoots quite often.
