Polaroid Variabele ND Filter 52mm

I bought this having previously used an ND grad filter system but couldn't get to grips with it. I used it for the first time on 10/2/14, taking some photos of a local NT garden and am very pleased with the results - you have to be careful of the...

Polaroid Fader ND Filter 72

When I received my item it had fingerprint and smudge marks all over the glass! There is also a gritty type of oil on the moving parts its obviously meant to help the glass rotate but I dont think it should be that gritty and all over the item. I...

Opteka .45x Wide Angle & 2.2x Telephoto HD² Pro Lens Set for Canon Powershot...

I love the look of this lens, I was afraid it would look like a toy magnifying glass, but it's actually not plastic and the silver color doesn't stand out. As far as performance both the wide screen and macro look fine even when the pictures are printed.

Polaroid Optics IR720 67

This is effectively nothing more than a deep read filter. It passes far too much of the visible spectrum to be used for infrared photography. If you want a cheap alternative to the Hoya infrared filter then try the Top! or Massa brands.

I give two stars, but this lens is not that bad at its current price. As others have said, there are some big drawbacks that come with this lens. Most important to me is adding this lens basically cancels out anything but full auto. No zoom, no scene...

Opteka SB-110 Universal Gel Softbox Diffuser for External Camera Flash Units...

I love almost everything about the product, but the color gels are very faded, not like in the picture I saw before I bought it. I have used the product in my recent photo shoot and I love how the little soft box mounts on the flash - much better than...

58mm Wide Angle Lens 0.5x for Canon Rebel XT XTi 58 mm

The glass is really cheap, the 2X is useless, wideangle gave a few decent images, but lot of distortion expecially around the edges.

Opteka 10x High Definition II Professional Macro Lens (72mm OPT10X72

Obviously you get what you pay for but these definitely do a great job for the price. I would recommend them.

They are very sturdy and well-made. I would have liked floral prints instead of solid colors. I am using them as my "memory" boxes for my daughter's wedding, my grandkids, etc.

Lens Pen Brush

I bought this lens pen because the official Nikon lens pen wasn't in stock. Overall, the quality feels a little cheap, but it's really not that bad. The brush works amazingly well. I absolutely love it. My only complaint is the other end that has...

Tamron 18-270 VC

This is one of the most remarkable tests of image stabilization that we have ever done. We made test photos at a focal length of 65 mm (103 mm @ FF) at different shutter speeds, first without image stabilization and immediately thereafter with image...

Cokin BPW400A P W/A Holder + Cat

This is the first time i have been using Cokin products and will still have to get used to it. I think they are the best from what is out there on the market, but still not perfect. I have noticed that on my 24-105mm lens when going down to 24mm I...

72mm Domed White Balance Lens Cap

I ordered this white balance lens cap because it could snap on your lens and would be easy to white balance with. It looked like a fast and efficient way to pre-white balalnce. Instead what I got was a Poloroid white balancing cap yes, but it was a...

The lenses are good quality lenses but the zoom has to be almost fully extended to eliminate the sides of the tube adapter from showing. Also, if the zoom is fully extended on the tele 2x zoom lens, it will create a blurred picture. The last con is...

Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM Lens

At 55mm, it can magnify the subject to 0.28x normal size. Even the Canon EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, my best macro zoom lens, can only achieve closest focus distance of 0.5m and magnifies the subject to 0.19x normal size. Of course, this is far...
