Why not get the canon one?

Not very likely, because you'll need to find one specifically designed
to mate with a Canon Pro1, or perhaps some other Canon with the same
bayonet mount. The chance of any other maker using a compatible
bayonet, even if the diameter is the same, is near zero.

For an example of people who do this, take a look at
They reverse-engineer the filter adapters for several Canon cameras and
make new ones that are better - machined out of metal and sometimes with
more convenient filter diameters. They obviously have access to CNC
machining equipment and a machinist good enough to make bayonet mounts
that fit well on the camera.

But LensMate don't seem to have the particular one you're looking for,
so you'll need to find someone else with similar capabilities that makes
something for the Pro1. Or find a machinist who will do a one-off
project for you.

Canon should be totally ashamed of this (and some others too) HP got this basic and absolutely essential thing right in their little digicam that's cheap even for a P&S, so why can't Canon?!! Yes, I know, there's more to the Canon 20D, b Mike Henley Digital Photography 43 12-15-2004 05:21 PM
