Product Description

Size: 37 mm

Polaroid filters continue the brand's long legacy of superior optical solutions. All our filters are carefully formulated to ensure consistent color and accuracy throughout the entire surface of the glass. Why? Consistent color means consistent high quality results. We know that a poorly made filter makes a great lens and camera worthless, that's why the our frame rings are constructed of special alloys that won't expand or contract over time or due to temperature extremes-it's also why we back our filters with an 10 year warranty-because we engineer them to last.

Like all Polaroid optics, Polaroid filters are precision manufactured to the most demanding of tolerances. This ensures consistent high quality results even after years of use.

Seriously, this thing is like a lens flare magnet. The only reason I bought it was because I wanted to protect my lens front element. But it's totally not worth it if half your pictures need to have extra bits of light photoshopped out, if they're even salvageable. Oh, and it sucks up dirt like a Hoover. The coating is on the front, it's hard to describe, but it gives the filter this almost tacky texture that makes wiping it down really difficult.

Edit:

After some research, I think the problem(really in addition to flare) is ghosting. Ghosting results from light bouncing off the sensor, and being reflected back down by the lens. It's a non-issue with most quality lenses because they're designed to avoid this. But this terrible filter adds the problem right back. I've attached a picture to show what happens with and without the filter when pointed in the direction of a light source. Keep in mind; this can happen with any light source. For example, I was recently in Hawaii and had all these little ghosts all over my photos, I'm now convinced they were from light being reflected by water ripples, and then by the UV filter.

This filter performs not only as advertised, but on the level of more "professional" filters in the higher price range. As advertised, it is definitely multi-coated, and you can tell right out of the box when you hold it up to the light. Like any good multi-coated glass, it easily attracts dust because of the coating, but is also easily cleanable with a microfiber cloth. It's no different than having anti-glare coating on your prescription glasses in that regard.

In performance, it works great in two fields - Outside, obviously, where it retains the sharpness of your lens, and often enhances it. Meanwhile it eliminates any lens glare, letting you take pictures in even the brightest scenery.

The other area I found is incredibly useful in is capturing performances that feature a lot of bright, florescent stage lighting. This filter really worked out all my kinks when it comes to capturing concert photos, helping you balance colors and get clear crisp shots without the frustration of stage lighting mangling your image. So even in low aperture shots this lens does wonders. I find it to be much more effective than a lens hood when used alone, although using both in conjunction isn't a bad idea either if you have a hood for the lens you're shooting with.

Definitely a must-have filter for anything from kit lenses to medium-high-end lenses. If you're shooting with the best of the best high end lens - Well, then I'm sure you already own the "expensive" filters out there. However, if you're sitting in the middle and neither a beginner nor financially well off enough to afford the excessively priced gear out there, the Polaroid Optics outperforms anything else in it's price range.

Well, I did not want to spend 50 bucks on a filter, so i took the risk and bought this and sadly I now have to photoshop the light-flares that this filter adds.

The alleged multicoating visibly compares in fact to plain and cheapest Hoya or Tiffen filters. One can see it easily by observing the amount of reflection in close compare to any quality filter, such as multicoated Hoya or B+W. Thus do not hope for a miracle here, you will get what you pay for.

I was hesitate in ordering this compare with some $20 filter which already have reviews and confirmed that have multi-coated. I went ahead and ordered two for my Nikon 50mm 1.8f and 55-200m lenses. They are awesome at this price, I tested with my new d7000. Pictures came out perfectly, filter is multi-coated as advertised. You can see the green shade when you hold it up to the light and when shooting direct at the light, no ghosting.

Great value for the money, will buy again.

This is a standard UV filter. It appears to be performing just fine, although the glass is a bit loose in the frame, which is annoying, but does not impact the performance. OK combination of price and performance.

I purchased this simply as a lens protector for my camera because it is highly rated here on Amazon, and Polaroid is well known in the camera world. I felt I could rely on those two qualities. I didn't expect pro performance from this filter (certainly not at this price), but I figured since it is a clear lens & is multi-coated, there was no reason to expect the unacceptable performance I experienced. To begin, the filter seemed remarkably light for a glass filter- it seems more like plastic. Next, it was more difficult to attach than any filter I have used in the past. It kept trying to cross thread itself and when I finally did get it going correctly it didn't glide very smoothly. After my test shots, when I wanted to remove it, I feared I was going to have to live with it forever on that lens because it was firmly cemented & I hadn't even completely tightened it. An extended struggle did finally end with me removing it. It went back into the case and will go into the trash. Please refer to the three shots, each one done with and then without the filter on the lens to see the added halos, ghosts, and whatever you call those colorful dots that magically appear.
