Great Quality CPL for Great Price.
on December 20, 2013
I bought a bunch of these in different sizes because they are so cheap. Instead of using step-up rings I can now have separate CPL filters for each lens. I did some research and found out these filters are produced by Desmond Photographic Distributors. As with all their other products, they are very good quality for a great price.
The glass seems to be nearly identical to my Hoya HD CPL as they have the same neutral color cast, and the same 1 1/3 stop light loss. (I have some other cheap CPL filters have a noticeable color cast and about 2 stops of light loss)
The frame is thicker and the rotating movement is not quite as smooth as my Hoya HD CPL. But for a fraction of the price, it certainly gets the job done.
Considering that this filter has many of the same features as Hoya HD CPL, I wouldn't be surprised if they are using the same glass but with different style frames.
