Tiffen Filter 49MM COLOR GRAD SUNRISE Filter

Stacking two polarizers, and rotating one, should at a certain angle lead to no light getting through, black, dark, nothing. Not so with this one, it's very weak in this regard. This might be fine for landscape photography, but in many applications a...

Adorama Heavy Duty L-bracket with 2 Standard Flash Shoe Mounts

I was leary of this product due to some people saying that it was poorly constructed. However, I haven't found that to be the case AT ALL. As a matter of fact, I put a custom made steel cold shoe that was admittedly too large for the cold shoe mount on...

Hoya HMC - Filter - circular polarizer - 55 mm

As at least one other reviewer has written the surface coating scratches easily. I take this hiking and backpacking, and I am VERY cautious with my equipment, but stuff happens. Scratching the filter is my fault but the thing is $82, I'd expect more...

Kenko KDV-2028

I am using this with a Nikon 80-200 F2.8 AF-D which makes the lens a 160-400 F5.6 and I have no complaints. I wish Nikon had and auto focus teleconverter that fits this lens, but all their new teleconverters are for AF-S lenses.

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Le; [Ships Free!]

I am new to DSLR photography and still testing the water. I got a Canon Digital Rebel and did not want to invest thousands into lenses untill I feel comfortable to. If you are in a similar situation, this is the lens for you. Things I like:- Compact...

Polaroid 3 PC Filter Kit 82

I bought this filter for landscape photography and allowing slightly longer shutter times. It does allow you to use a slower shutter but and the big but is that it produces a distinct colour tinge on the photos. With a bit of work you can fix this with...

Polaroid White Balance Lens Cap for 62mm filter-sized digital SLR camera Lens

The Lens cap works very well, and I'm pleased with the results I've gotten by using it. I would reccomend measuring and using your own white balance in your photos, as it represents the colours more accurately. The build quality of this lens cap isn't...

Sunpak CAM-2110 MagMount 0.5x Wide-Angle Conversion Lens (Large)

Well, I am a bit unsatisfied with this product. The pictures have a noticeable distortion at the corners, and the borders of the lens frame appear at the corners. It seems the lens is just a bit too small... Also, the included magnetic ring, that...

Tamron SP AF 1.4x Pro Teleconverter for Nikon Mount Lenses

Bought this to use with my new Canon EOS 500D/Rebel T1i and the Canon EF-S 55-250mm zoom. When I received the product my first surprise was that in the included spec document it stated: "This teleconverter is not designed for digital use. We do not...

Tiffen Company 43mm Telephoto Lens (00195)

Frankly, it's too early to be asked to review the product, at least in my case. I've only had time to use it once and only to check it out to see if it functioned with camera. I may give another review later close to summer when I've spent some serious...

Panasonic 14-42 mm X

The Panasonic 14-42 mm PZ X has a special multi-coating in order to minimize flare and ghosting. Nevertheless you can experience flare when there's a light source just outside the image.

Quantaray Digital Series DC

As some folks have said it's an auto focus lens, but not for the lower end Nikon bodies. It doesn't have the auto focus motor built in so you need to focus yourself. It's still called an auto focus lens because it will auto focus with the correct...

Hama 49mm Variable Neutral Density Filter

Samsung NX 45mm F1.8 2D/3D

The Samsung 45mm f/1.8 ($299 list) is a fast prime lens for the NX compact interchangeable lens camera system. The lens delivers a field of view that is roughly equivalent to a 70mm lens on a full-frame D-SLR or a 35mm film camera. It's an awkward...

Walimex Graufilter-Set ND4/ND8 52 mm

Nearly all ND filters have some kind of colour cast but this pair add a strong brown colouration which is difficult to remove in PP, even when shooting raw. This is especially noticeable when stacking them. They're cheap, and fine for monochrome use,...

Vivitar Series-1 4-Element 2x Tele Converter, Pentax Autofocus Mount

Its a product just for fun. The auto focus is disable, therefore you will have to do a Manual Focus mode. A little bit of an inconveience.

Opteka HD² 72mm R72 720nm Infrared X-Ray IR Filter

This filter is a tremendous value. Compared with the prices of other filters and the cost of converting a DSLR to take Infrared images, this is the best way to fly! Worth taking the effort to shoot with it for the cost factor!

It creates not a nice effect on UWA lens such as my sigma 10-20mm. I never liked the pictures taken with it and have found myself not using it at all.

B+W Graduated 502 neutral density - Filter - graduated - 77 mm

After playing around with this filter a little, I've discovered that there is one glaring design defect: there is no indicator on the ring, anywhere, indicating the axis along which the filter is graduated. The closest thing to it is the word "F-Pro",...

SIGMA Electro 135-400/4,5-5,6 DG FOUR THIRDS

Well, I bought this lens and it is good for the money. It is very hard to find lens so it will be more of a collectors item later on. That said, the lens focus is pretty fast and accurate. 400mm 800mm at F5.6 is super nice. The lens does suffer...
