Default Include info on filter adapter tube?

There is one feature of bridge cameras that is very important to me: the ability to add a filter.

A few cameras such as the S3-IS accept an adapter tube that allows me to use filters. I consider this a huge plus, and is the only piece of information I value in making camera choices that I do not find in your excellent reviews.

Please consider adding this to your check list.

Thanks for the terrific reviews you conduct.

G'day Rick

This comment also needs to go to sites like "dpreview" for their reviews too

Regards, Phil

rick1matthews,

Thanks for the great feedback. We are always looking for constructive feedback from readers to help us better serve them.

In our Canon PowerShot S3 IS review, we did note the S3's dress ring which can be removed to accommodate optional lens adapters and conversion lenses. You can see this on the Features & Controls page of that particular review. However, it seems this is not a feature we usually highlight in our conclusions.

I'll be sure to pass this note along to all our reviewers.

Thanks again for the great feedback, and for visiting Steve's!

Billy I would second the request in saying that it would be nice to know if a camera has thread for filters or not....... adding if the camera can take lens adapters and conversion lenses would be nice especially when the camera has a lesser powered zoom. I am one that likes to have a UV filter or clear protector filter on my camera because of the elements I shoot in and have always looked for a camera with a thread lens that excepts them. And..... I guess it would go without saying that if it does take filters etc you'd need to add the proper mm listing as well.......

Keep up the great work!

I recently found out the canon sx30is HAS to HAVE an adapter ring to use 67mm filters...and they show one on their site...trick is...it isn't up for sale...no little box to click to purchase...so many accessories so little compatibility. It is 'almost' a 52 or 58mm just NOT quite..(can't remember what friend said). Guess will have to wait.
