Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value 17 Oct 2013
By Steve
Size Name:67mm|Verified Purchase
The internet is full of snobbish reviews of camera equipment. They tell you to spend £50 on filters which is ridiculous for most amateur photographers. I can understand avoiding the dirt cheap filters, but I simply could not afford an expensive one having just spent a small fortune on my new DSLR. That said it is important to protect the end of your lens, and cleaning a filter is a lot less nerve racking than the lens itself.

Looking through the various filters on Amazon I went for this because it was relatively cheap but still from a known brand - Polaroid. It is very well made, crystal clear, and I am delighted with it. After test shots with/without I really doubt you could tell the difference between this £8 UV and a £50 UV on an amateur lens (although there will always be a camera snob on hand to tell you otherwise).

Sure putting a £8 filter on a £1500 lens would be a bit silly, but for us day to day lens protection and UV filtering, trust me this will do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wht pay more? 8 Feb 2012
By PlanB
Size Name:72mm|Verified Purchase
Having bought and lost £42 pounds worth of UV filter I couldn't believe the price of this one. I know these filters are only 2mm clear glass but people like Jessops want silly money! This is from Poloroid and works perfectly. I did a comparison with 2 different lenses using both this and a Jessops product and there is no difference whatsoever.

1.0 out of 5 stars a bit suspect 14 Oct 2011
Size Name:46mm
I think i must of got a bad from a bad batch, but when i got the uv glass the, the glass was not in good condition and had chip marks. I would be interested to see if other people had the same. But i was bit disappointed with it as Polaroid is a good brand name, and they should have better quality control.

Good quality and fair priced UV filter. I have bought it to act mainly as a lens protector but it also does what it is intended for.

4.0 out of 5 stars cheap filters 19 Jan 2011
Size Name:62mm|Verified Purchase
Bought two Polaroid UV filters for main lenses on my Canon 500d, they seem to be well made and as good as much more expensive filters and come in protective cases. The prices for some other filters, which let's face it are just plain glass are simply ridiculous. I dont suggest that its necessary to go for the cheapest but these are a good compromise, especially when delivered up to Amazon's usual standards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money
You can pay a lot more for these, and there is no need - as long as they do what you need them to do! This one is optically good and screws on and off easily, so why pay more?
