Hitech Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter 0.6

Like you, I thought I'd save some dough and get this Hitech reverse grad ND. Sorry to say that it presents with a sickly magenta/brownish colour cast, NOT neutral gray, (try getting Lightroom to color-correct a shot with proper WB on the bottom and...

Sakar CPL-77

This is the worse polarizer filter I ever had. It polarizes but you loss tons of sharpness. I did scientific test with 70-200mm L f/2.8 IS II lens and compare it with cheapest hoya (green series) under the bright sun. My sharpest lens produce very bad...

Tiffen Q-13 Colour Separation Guide with Grey Scale

I agree with previous reviewers. For an item that is so expensive, it should be printed on something more substantial. The life expectancy of this item must be weeks if in use - not years. I will not be buying this item again from this manufacturer!!

I can't say I've used this product enough to give a proper review, but i can say it arrived without any issues, and it feels well enough made considering the price. Recommended to any amateur, semi-pro photographer

Canon 67mm Protection 1X Screw-In Filter

I Think the pupose of this filter is to protect the lens when it's being stored and not for optical use. This may explain the previous review, but it doesn't explain why you would ever need one unless you've lost the lens cap.

Mennon DV-b 37 37mm Digital Video Camcorder Lens Hood with Thumb Lock Mount...

I've tried this on two small HD camcorders and the sides of the shade are visible at wide angle settings. It's not worth the hassle to return.

Sto-Fen Omni-Bounce OM-EW Flash Diffuser + DB ROTH Kit For The Canon 430EX...

I purchased this kit in September, 2009, while originally intending to purchase the diffuser alone. It seemed like a good deal to get the batteries and charger for not much more money. The Sto-Fen diffuser itself is great. However, the labled "2900...

Pro-Optic 500mm f/8 Manual Focus, T-Mount Mirror Lens

The picture quality is not so bad after trying, but, the body is not so strong enough to avoid the shock of focus adjustment production & caused using quite a long time to take a picture. In fact, I bought this lens due to the attractive price.

camlink Circular Polarising Filter 52mm [CL-52CPL]

I bought one of these (from another retailer) and also have tried out the Camlink UV filter. Fitted them (seperate times) to a Canon 50mm f1.8 EF lens, which is cheap but returns pretty good image quality normally. I thought the results of the Camlink...

Merkury Innovations B58T 58mm High Definition Telephoto Lens

The view is so distorted that it is worthless as telephoto lens. I suppose it could be used to provide an artistic effect.

Bower 2x 62mm Telephoto Conversion Lens for Digital/Film Cameras in Black color

I waited 10 business days before giving up on receiving a meaningful response and calling this seller. The explanation was, it must have been "lost". I gave them the benefit of a doubt, confirmed my shipping address and was told they would send one...

My father in law gave me this as it did not work on his camera (bad image quality). I tried this on my Nikon D40 attaching it to the 55-200mm VR kit lens, and the image quality is bad (autofocus doesnt work too well either with this on). A couple of...

Raynox HD 6600PRO 55 - Converter

I wasted a lot of money for this lens. I bought this lens for our Arizona trip to get some great shots of the Grand Canyon. I have a Lumix FZ50. I tried every conceivable setting and had vignetting in EVERY shot. I also did the conversion lens...

Nikon Gegenlichtblende HB 33

I purchased this just to add some physical protection to the front element of the lens. The hood is so shallow it doesn't really make any difference, and other than that it is really not needed on an 18-55mm kit lens. If you want to protect your lens...

Sakar 2x 52mm Telephoto Conversion Lens for Digital/Film Cameras in Silver color

This is made for relatively cheap cameras that don't have a good zoom lens. If you put this on the front of a Nikor long lens you will be a bit disappointed. But that's natural. It is really cheap. Remember what you grandmother used to say, "If the...

Works only if you are far away and need to zoom alot. If you are too close, the barrel of the lens is visible in the frame and you have a black circular border effect in your pics. Good for high light and distant shots only. Great for baseball and...

HIDEF TOKINA 3X TELEPHOTO LENS FOR OLYMPUS C-8080 8080

I bought this lens to triple the telephoto capabilities of my Olympus C-8080, whose internal zoom lens of 5x this "Tokina" 3x extends to 15x. Upon mounting the lens to my camera, the first annoyance that I encountered was that even at my camera's...

Great delivery from the camera shop to NZ. Unfortunately, the results with a canon G6 are not acceptable: A dark ring is around all images, even on full zoom. It should not be sold as being compatable with the Canon G6. I tried it on a Fuji S3000:...
