Canon S90 New vs old filter adapter

Has anyone replaced the orginal Lensmate filter adapter with the new magnetic one?

If so what do you think?
Is the magnet strong enough that you don't worry anbout the filter falling off?

Im temted, because allthrough I don't offten use the built in flash, when I do, be nice not to worrry about being blocked at the wider settings.
Also the beifit of being able to swich filters rapidly.

Dave: I replaced mine and yes the magnets are plenty strong. there is also a bayonet mount you turn and it locks. I would replace mine in a heart beat again. One nice feature with it off you can use the flash with no shadow.

I didn't have the first version, but I did buy the second. In addition to the magnetic attraction, there's a bayonet-style catch. It's pretty damn well thought out. No way it's coming off unless you intend, and then it goes off easily. The tiny adapter that's stuck to the lens (when the filter is removed) is hardly noticeable. These guys did their homework.

Still using the metal adapter from ebay that screws into the tripod adapter.

Much, much tougher than having anything stuck to the front of the camera.

Hi Guys,

Thank you for the reply, the thread was lost, just foiund it again!

Think I will treat myself to the new adapter and get a scond one for a Uv filter, to use when in a outdoor, invioment, such as the beach, ect..

Might as well get that O ring, to stop the back dial movment, should make this little guy, just about perfect.
