Good set of filters for beginners.
on 19 June 2010
So I recently bought my first DSLR camera last week (EOS Canon 1000D). I still only have the standard Canon kit lens 18-55mm (non IS). Order these two days ago and they came this morning (good speedy delivery). As the description says, you get 7 filters in two separate carry cases which do the job just fine.
You get 4 close up filters; +1, +2, +4, +10.
These seem OK, I haven't really tried them yet but they certainly fit the thread on the end of my camera (58mm thread).
You also get 3 different filters; UV, FLD and CPL.
Haven't tried the FLD yet. The UV is a good protector for my camera lens and the CPL (Circular Polarising Lens) is perhaps the most useful.
I've seen other reviews about other cheaper CPL filters available on Amazon and was dubious of this one at first. However it does work! Just try pointing your camera at a computer monitor and turning the filter, as you rotate 180 degrees you'll slowly block out the linearised out-put of the monitor.
Overall really happy with this product, especially the CPL. One point to consider if you do order these is that because you can rotate the CPL filter there is a small amount of lubricant on the frame of the filter, just ensure non has leaked before you attach to your camera, after which you're ready to go!
