Does anyone have a mod for the Canon PowerShot S3 IS other than the CDHK mod? Answered

Like a protector for its lens, i saw one lensmate attachment so it would protect the lens system, is there like a ghetto version of it, or a poormans mod? :)

Here is the lensmate attachment.

Thanks for the link - I'm going to have to get a Lensmate for my S5IS.  I've got the Canon adaptor but this looks a lot more versatile.  

I've considered the CDHK mods which is one of those things which should  work, but it's a big deal if Sod's law strikes and you're left with a brick.
Other than that, if the S3's the same as the S5, it's a tricky fitting to put anything home-made on, and the fact that the lens whizzes in and out makes it all the harder.  I'm going for the Lensmate myself.

Thanks for your reply andygadget! I opted to order the lensmate, but i live all the way in the philippines which makes it hard for me to wait. About the mod, was trying out a couple of stuff like soda cans and such which needs to be cut and mounted with either a zip tie or something on the outer lens area so it would not be a hassle. I've found complaints on the web about its lens, mainly the problem is people bumping the lens into stuff. But anyway, hope to find a suitable mod for it. Thanks again. happy building!

Pah!  I'd have gone for the black 52mm Lensmate but it's been discontinued.  They still do the 58mm but it's silver!  Would look a bit incongruous on a black camera.  Also, my old SLR filters are 52mm.
