Best Lens Adapter Ring for Canon PowerShot SX50 HS and SX60 Review with Photos

best SX50 hs adapter ring
If you need to put lenses on you new Canon PowerShot SX50 HS or SX60 HS I have tried four different adapters and I will show you which worked best for me.

After trying out 2 different 67mm Lens Conversion Adapter Rings that were plastic I found they both were too loose once installed on my Canon. I was uncomfortable with the movement I got when using a lens hood and felt it may snap the attachment groves off the end of my camera.

I next bought a 58mm lens adapter ring that was a thicker plastic which held tighter to my camera but the thicker material cause vignetting. It was most visible when shooting at wider angles but not so bad with longer shots. Though the adapter fit better I could not except the vignetting I was getting.

I gave it one final try with a kit that included the lens adapter ring along with lenses and hood.lens kit

The lens adapter ring that came with the kit was much slimmer and metal. Best of all there is no vignetting. It installed with a solid click with no binding and held tight with no movement at all. I am able to take it on and off with no noticeable wear to the SX50. A much better fit than the plastic rings i have gotten before.

  1. I got graduated colored lens kit of 58 mm for sx50hs , can I attach them directly to the camera ?

    Klink: Only when you connect the adapter first. There are no regular threads on the camera.

  2. Thanks so much. The adapter link at the bottom worked perfect for my Canon SX60 HS. I had tried 2 others that did not fit well but that one works perfect.
