Exactly what I wanted to protect the lens on my Canon Vixia HF10!

  • Mar 6, 2009

I was filming my son up in a tree the other day with my new Canon Vixia HF10 Camcorder and, just to be funny, he spit in my direction. He didn't think it would hit me and I didn't either (though looking at the video now I don't know why I didn't worry more and back away ...). It wasn't so funny when his "loogie" landed right on my lens.

After I calmed down and had cleaned the lens (not such an easy task because there is a mechanism on the Vixia that covers the lens automatically and some of the saliva had drifted into the mechanism), after I calmed down and realized my camcorder was not destroyed, I thought: I really need a UV filter to protect my lens against the "elements."

I looked around quite a bit, and Canon has an expensive set of filters for the Vixia that includes both a UV filter and a neutral density filter, but I found that reviewers of many of the less expensive filters complained about difficulties screwing them into the Vixia. This one I can definitely say works great. It adapts perfectly to my camcorder and does exactly the job I wanted from it.

With a filter this inexpensive, and with a company that will ship it for free(- thank you Gigabargain!) this is an ideal accessory to a camcorder you'd like to protect against all emergencies.
