p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Filter Systems with the G1X ?


Now I have finally bought a G1X I am looking for a suitable filter arrangement for it.

I have the Adapter so can take 58mm filters...and have in my collection some suitable items such as a Hoya polarizing filter, skylight and close up filters.

I am thinking of investing in a Cokin type system for landscape use and wondered if any one has tried this type of arrangement with a G1X or other compact camera...and with what results?

At the moment I am undecided between the A and the P size so comments on these would be helpful.

No opinions on this? I was hoping to put in some orders in the morning.......guess I will just play safe and go for the P system.....

Get the smallest size Cokin/Lee type filters that will cover the lens. On such a small lens front, using a larger size hard grad will render it as a soft grad. A soft grad will do nearly nothing for you.

The A size is too small..hand held the A size holder to the lens earleir and there is obvious vignetting...so has the be the next size up I think.

Which is probably a good option.....with other adapters I can use the system on my DSLR /SLRs as well...
