Strong Color Cast and Loss of Sharpness
on November 25, 2016
I'm very surprised at the positive reviews here based on my experience.
All three filters provided a really strong color cast. A cast like this can be somewhat improved in post processing but it's not always easy to get right. An ND filter should not have a color cast and not require this kind of tweak. I was really disappointed to find that all of my images with these filters had an orange hue.
In all cases, as well, the images were not as sharp as without the filters. This isn't even pixel peeping, just viewing the pictures on a 13" screen. Taking two pictures with the same setup (tripod), the difference is very very clear. The images come out almost foggy or hazy with the filters.
Finally, the bag they come in is the stupidest bag I've ever seen for filters. The padding material is a bunch of small threads which stick to the filters like dust so that every time you take one out you first need to clean it.
I understand these are entry level filters but these are barely useable.
