Canon PowerShot SX10IS Accessories

Canon PowerShot SX10IS is a super Zoom camera which has a 20x optical zoom lens with a focal length of 5.0-100mm (35mm film equivalent: 28-560mm). Canon havn't provided a way to put more extra lens on it since 560mm is something huge for a point & shoot camera. But there are other accessories which you might come handy for a Canon PowerShot SX10IS camera user. Here is a List of those Canon SX10is Camera accessories.

  • Lensmate 58mm SX10 Filter Holder - This is an accessory which every SX10is user must have ! The Lensmate SX filter holder will accept any 58mm threaded filter or step ring. Each is CNC-machined of Delrin to high tolerances, and bayonets onto the lens barrel quickly and securely. Its price is $15.9 at the moment and you can only buy it from Lensmate website for now.

  • Hakuba SX10 LCD Screen Protector - Made in Japan Ultra High Quality LCD screen protector to protect your LCD from scratches, dirts, fingerprints. This will help you to keep your LCD panel safe from scraches. This is also avaiable as Lensmate website for $9.95 but I think price maybe little too much. You can find one for less price and with free shipping at

  • Hoya SUPER HMC 58 mm UV Filter - absorbs the ultraviolet rays, which often make outdoor photographs hazy and indistinct. It is a multi-purpose fine-weather filter for color as well as black and white films. It also serves as a permanent lens protector. This is a genuine multi-coated UV filter let more than 99% light to go through it unlike other HMC UV Filters. This is a genuine multi-coated UV filter which is something you must have for the saftly of your camera lens ( You need 58mm SX10 Filter Holder to use this ). You can buy this at for around 30$.

  • HOYA 58CIR 58mm Circular Polarized Filter - They allow you to remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water, glass etc. They also enable colors to become more saturated and appear clearer, with better contrast. This effect is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds. HOYA's polarising filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot. I bought a Hoya Circular HMC Polarizer (6 coats) 58mm for 70$ at Lensmate but has Circular Polarized Filter for even around 25$ which is a bargain price ! I don't see much different in quality So I don't think its bad to go for those at

  • Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Lens - The DCR-250 Super Macro lens obtains the maximum macro magnification power with the camera lens set at the most telephoto zoom position. This super Macro Conversion Lens, with Snap-on Universal Mount for 52mm to 67mm Filter Diameters. Raynox DCR-250 Macro Lens is a Great peice of accessories for your SX10IS camera. You are gonna need to have a Flash to work with this and take time to learn what you are doing but you are gonna have fun. I bought it at Lensmate for 45$ for sales price without shipping but you can find it in around 42-52$ with Free Shipping in USA.

You have to remember Filters and the Macro Lens need the 58 Filter adapter to fix them to your SX10IS. So you need to buy the Filter holder/adapter first and better buy like 2 since it wont make a differece in shipping cost. They will come handy at some point. has good quality Canon SX10IS Accessories but unfortunatly they have only selected collection and prices are bit high. Because I saw the HMC Polarizer i bought for 70$ At for less than 40$ once. But another good thing is they do a quality packing. Package was neat and packed keeping the safty of goods in mind.
