Opteka 67mm Close-Up Set (+1, +2, and +4) with 10x Macro Lens

Trying to save money and get good close up shots. That's an oxymoron. If you want great macro shots, invest in a good macro lens. These reduce the light so much that you have to be stock still on a tripod to get a sharp image. That means any breath of...

Tiffen ND3.0 Neutral-Grau-Filter (77 mm, Blendestufe 10)

The package arrived really quickly and the build quality is really good for this filter. Like many others say colours are distorted, giving the appearance of a Lomo camera and vintage look. Fine for me but once converted to B&W images are amazing and...

I have another one for a different camera and it works great, so used the same brand for the new camera.

Canon PL-C 72mm Circular Polarizer

I am not sure what makes this so expensive but I guess there has to be a reason. I bought this for my Canon SLR and it has been a life saver when taking pictures at the beach in bright sun. It works great and the pictures come out cool and crisp.

Cokin Adapterring Z 77

These adapter rings work with the Cokin Z-Pro holder and they slide in onto the holder from the bottom and are locked in with 3 safety notches (2 at the bottom, 1 at the top) They are quite thinner and lighter than the equivalent adapter rings from the...

I bought this a a gift for my wife who uses a Nikon D40 with various lenses. What a disappointment to find out that the autofocus does not work with any of the lenses - it constantly tries to focus but never gets it right. When using in manual focus...

Vivitar Conversion

My first encounter with a Vivitar Series 1 lens goes back more than 15 years to the 600mm "Solid Cat," one of the slickest super-telephotos ever made.

Opteka Universal Flash Diffuser for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Pentax...

This is very handy and small. It fits the Opteka flash tight but perfectly. The Opteka is 2.75 X 1.5" for reference. Anything larger than this may be a problem. One of the interior sides is silver reflective (the outside black side) which gives it more...

Bower 72 mm Digital Filter Kit, UV, CPL and ND Filter

Looks and feels like it was made in China. Quality went completely out the window. Even its case is poor constructed.

Brand New Tokina Professional 3X Telephoto & 0.42X Wide Angle Macro Lens for...

I was totally disapponted by these two lenses. The Zoom does not even fit in the camera. I could not return the item as I had moved to Scotland. They were not expensive but definately what they are supposed to be.

This lens would deserve negative stars if that were possible. I'm writing this review because I wish someone else had written one to protect me. Maybe this will help someone else avoid my mistake. I bought this item as a gift for my partner to use...

Bower Small 0.38X Magnetic Wide Angle Lens - Bower VL38MS

I tried this lens for a few photo shoots. It was a joke. Just didn't work at all the way I thought it would. Pictures were unusable.

Ilford Ilfosol-3 General Purpose Developer for Black & White Film, Liquid...

I've been using Ilfosol 3 for a while now, and it seems to work just fine. However, this price (over $18 for a 500ml bottle as of this writing) is nuts. Its available from other online sources for less than half that price.

SONY 11-18mm F/4.5-5.6 DT

The Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DT is currently the only ultra-wide angle lens in the Sonylens lineup. Obviously it is not a native Sony (nor Minolta) design but cross-licensed from Tamron (where Sony is a major shareholder). However, the lens has been...

Canon TC-DC 58 D

Excellent product. Attaches firmly to the adapter ring bringing extra magnification for close up shots producing clear images. Easy to mount on camera at a convenient size to carry it out. I would recommend it to anyone owning A G10 digital camera.

Opteka (S2626667)

I found the lens I ordered was not described accurately. Repeated calls to 47th provided more bum dope. I returned the lens to them AT MY EXPENSE (no return postage paid return sticker was provided) and still got hit with a $15 restockage charge.

I am really disappointed with this lens kit. The large tripod, small portable tripod, camera bag and lens cleaning kit are all worth while, but the lenses on my Panasonic GS 500 are lousy to say the least. You need a lens mount adapter to upscale the...

Canon EF 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 V USM

nice lens, good colours i used it extensively in all conditions, silent, fast focusing, who cares if it is small and light who buys a lens to put it in the treasure vault, the essential is to buy the low investment lens and get the same results as with...

Mennon Pro Center Pinch 82mm Snap-On Lens Cap with Leash

The lens cap does not hold well after being snapped in. It can be dislodged easily just by applying pressure around the outside. After snapping it in, I screw it into the filter threads for a better hold. It does not hold as well as lens caps I have on...
