Excellent alternative for extremely costly filters in market
on April 8, 2012
For almost all nature photographers, Graduated Neutral Density (GND) and Neutral Density (ND) filters are must. The former helps to bring out the drama of sky and contours of clouds, while later helps in pressing down the exposure of a over exposed scene that your camera can not handle (eg. Milky Water). The word "Neutral" means that the filter should not add any color cast and will only help to reduce the exposure.
There are some good filters available in market - Lee, Ray-Singh, B+W, Cokin are all good. But they are costly. The price makes them truly color "neutral" filters. This product however is not truly neutral. It adds a magenta cast, but that is a minor issue that I discount for the low price. Such color cast can easily be removed in PhotoShop or similar photo editing tools.
I am happy with the purchase. Apart from the glasses, the cases are made of good material, and each glass is individually wrapped that shows the care behind selling this product.
Be careful, when you take out the filter from plastic wraps, if the glue sticks to the glass, you may have hard time to get rid of it. Some reviewed already cautioned about this fact, and I am thankful to him, since I took care of this during unwrapping my filters.
