I was only really interested in this set for the obvious two components the UV filter and the CPL. The UV filter is fine and does exactly what you'd hope. Whereas the CPL is simply horrible. Stood under the crystal clear sky of the desert I decided to apply the CPL and really bring out the blue against the sand and rocks. However, as I rotated the CPL what was revealed to me was not a steadily increasing gradient nor linear reduction of light\reflection. I would have even settled for stark gradiated lines, but instead it presented a very concentrated purple dot which radiated outwards in a starburst pattern. It was utterly unusable and in a situation where I was relying on it and unable to obtain an alternative. This product is simply not fit for purpose in my opinion.

I have used Polaroid filters for a long time so there was no other choice for me for my new 70-300mm zoom. Very well made, they come in a handy wallet that will either fit in your bag or your pocket. They even include information on when each of the 4 filters should be used. Great buy

I was searching the market for a circular polariser when I stumbled across this set, I couldn't believe the reasonable price considering they're Polaroid.

Anyway, please see my brief description of each lens:

Fluorescent Light: This purple filter is designed to take the green tinge often found in photos that are taken under artificial light. I used this filter a couple of times but found it to be useless, it gave all my photos a purple tinge... Now tell me if I'm being fussy, but if I don't want a green tinge in my photos, what good is replacing it with a purple one?

Circular Polariser: This filter is supposed to cut down glare from the sun on certain objects, specifically windows and water surfaces... I found this filter difficult to use, I would stand for ages turning the filter very slowly to get it to polarise in the correct direction, I would say 9 times out of 10 I failed, this possibly could be because I'm using it incorrectly but I read several pieces of literature regarding these filters and I used it as directed, with very limited results.

Warm Filter: As the name suggests, this filter adds a brightening effect to dark pictures by simply giving your photos a yellow boost, it works but could be easily carried out using a photo editor.

Ultra-Violet Filter: Does exactly as the name suggests and filters out UV light, This filter has two advantages (in my opinion). First of all, you can keep this filter attached to your camera at all times, which acts as a protector for your lenses. Secondly I personally have found pictures to be sharper and clearer when taken through a UV filter, this is an added benefit.

For me, the only good filter in this set is the UV filter, I can buy these separately and very cheaply...

For a DSLR really only two of these 4 filters are useful, the UV filter, which serves to protect the front element of your lens, and the circular polariser which can improve landscape photos. The other two filters would be useful if you are still using a film SLR but serve no function with digital, as the white balance function of a digital camera can correct the colour casts caused by artificial light better than these coloured filters. Indeed these will have no effect unless you turn off auto white balance on your camera as it will just adjust the image to remove the orange or purple tints.

Despite only 2 out of 4 being useful the set is still good value as it is cheaper than buying a polaroid 77mm UV and 77mm CP filter individually. My biggest critiscism is the storage pouch. It gets fibres etc all over the filters and the velcro is position to make it difficult to put filters in and out while avoiding the rough velcro rubbing on them.

The copy I got was very bad quality, the UV filter left stripes on the blurred background and made the focused area a bit blurry. The polar filter had circular "stripes" in the blurred background. The other two filters were optically clean.
I have other filters from polaroid too, which did not have these issues. Maybe at this size they cannot produce good filters, or just my copy was very bad, I don't know.

There hasn't been much use for the warming and fluorescent filters with digital photography due to corrections possible in Camera Raw, but the Polariser and UV work well for the Olympus Pen EP-2. I've had these filters for well over 2 years now, and with due care, they've lasted and are still of high quality. I've lost many lens caps throughout time, and now just buy a UV filter in replacement, as they work out cheaper and allow fast, spontaneous shooting if necessary.

The small 37mm thread works well for many Micro Four Thirds lenses; I use these filters on the Olympus 17mm and 45mm.

This filter set comprises: a UV (ultra violet) FILTER to kill glare to enhance your outdoor efforts (it also affords very good protection for the camera lens); a POLARISING FILTER which you attach and rotate to ENHANCE HIGHLIGHTS (such as eyes or the ‘bling’ on jewellery) and SUBDUE REFLECTIONS (so that you can shoot someone swimming underwater for example); a ‘blue’ COLOUR CORRECTION FILTER for shooting using ARTIFICIAL lighting – supermarkets, indoor venues, your home, and so on; and a ‘WARM’ FILTER to enhance skin-tones and capture truly stunning sunsets.

Coming in a superb ‘easy access’ case to protect your filters when out and about, you will be hard-pushed to find a better product at this ‘bite-their-hand-off’ price.

Happy shooting.
