I purchased this case based on the following needs:
-quick and easy access to filters
-holds only the filters I need for the lenses I'm carrying when hiking or out-and-about
-secure external attachment to my sling for fast swapping
All my needs were met perfectly.
This filter case is very durable, and has a build quality that will surely last for years to come. The velcro is very secure--the back velcro strap has an added snap button for that extra bit of security and the front velcro is just as secure with the added benefit of a plastic snap--your filters aren't going anywhere. It has stayed attached to my bag or belt on long hikes through bushes and bumps with no problems. I don't need to check to make sure things are still attached.
The padding is good enough to keep my filters from damaging each other (varying sizes) and the height of the pockets is perfect for easy access without having to dig for them.
What else can I say? If this case design is what you're looking for, then the product will make you happy. Quality all the way.
1. I've bought Tamrac products in the past and have been very pleased with the quality and value;
2. It came in a pocket form factor rather than a wallet, which allowed it to fit inside my camera case; and
3. It was reasonably priced.
Fifteen minutes after opening the package, it was back in its box and in my closet, never to see the light of day again. The product description states that it "provides quick access to three filters up to 77mm in size in separate, foam-padded slots"; yet I could not get my three 52mm filters to fit into the case. I could get one into rear slot easily, I could get one into the middle slot if I used a lot of force, but there was no way I could get the third filter into the front slot.
So now I'm back to square one, in search of a good quality filter case that will fit in my camera bag.
Anyone have any suggestions?
A lot of people don't realize it, but keeping your lens cap clean is just as important as your filters. Why stick the lens cap in your pocket and pick up a boat load of pocket lint. I'd rather put a nice clean cap back on my camera lens, and I don't have to try to remember where I put the cap!
I do agree however that the velcro AND snap is a bit of overkill, but better more than less security!
in all i'm happy with this product, however i would like to point out that if you have a smaller sized filter (mine are 72mm, you could find yourself fishing for them and end up causing finger prints on the lens.
This case uses a strap on the back that is secured via velcro and a button to utilize outside accessory systems on various bags. You could also belt loop it if you prefer.
because of the design, i feel 100% safe from standard droppings. (we even threw it into the air and allows it to hit a hard floor and it caused NO damage to the inside items. (now if you had your lens in one of those plastic cases, most likely that case would have cracked or come apart which would then put you in a race to catch your rolling lens... However, pressure damage is another thing to consider, under no way would i squeeze this case or hope that if my BAG where to fall, that it lands with stuff ontop, i feel very confident that the filter lens would crack, but the closing flap fits so tight, i doubt you would have broken glass in your bag
Unless your bag already comes with a way to secure your individual filter lens or if you really want outside access to them, i see no real reason to purchase this
I'm using 2 x 72mm filter lens and in the 3rd pocket, i have my 2 x step down rings.
I only wish it had one more pocket for my 49-58mm and 58-77mm step up rings. But then I'd be leaving a review for the Tiffen 4BLTPCHLGK Large Belt Style Filter Pouch for Filters 62mm to 82mm and it probably would be just a bit to big for my camera case. Also the Tiffen case did not have the extra security of the velcro and snap buckle for closing and I felt that was an important feature to have.
