I purchased the Canon hood and filter adapter via Amazon

Customer Question

I purchased the Canon hood and filter adapter via Amazon for the Canon Powershot G3X twice, but in both cases both pieces seem too big for the camera. First, how am I supposed to attach the filter adapter? And if you can answer that question, perhaps you can tell me how the hood is supposed to work.

Hi Dianna,

The size is larger than the lens to prevent vignetting at max wide angle.

Which adapter are you using? You should be using the FA-DC67B adapter.

About 5 minutes after contacting Just Answer with my question, I figured out how to connect the filter to the filter adapter to the hood to the camera on my own. Thank you for the effort, but I solved my problem before getting the answer I needed.

Ok, glad to hear you got sorted!

Have a great weekend!
