Just bought the SX50 HS Digital camera....need Filters UV,Skylight,etc.

Just bought the SX50 HS Digital camera....Canon tells me i need to buy the FA-DC67A Adapter required to use 67mm filters. The cANON website shows only three filters...


1) FA-DC67A ADAPTER           $25.00

2) 67mm PL-CB polarizer      $390.00

3) 67mm UV PROTECTOR  $ $85.00


I also have a Canon AE1 PROGRAM with 52mm.  Anyway to use these old filters with this new camera?


So basically, I can not attach any filters to my existing SX50 lens, without buying the adapter FA-DC67A?


I've seen combo filters like a polarizing, UV, and Skylight filter, do they make this, or would i have to buy separate UV, A skylight, or a polarizing filter?


Thanks for any ideas, or where I could buy these filters cheaper than Canon

Hi Photoman17,


With the Filter Adapter FA-DC67A, you may attach 67mm filters of all types.


In order to use the smaller 52mm filter, you'd need to locate an adapter.


For information regarding available filters, please contact us.
