    UV filters are design to filter out UV rays and help give the picture you are taking a deeper blue and richer colors with shooting in sunlight. They also server another purpose and that is to protect you lenses. If you scratch the UV filter , you can simply replace it instead of buying a new lens. This is a cheap way to protect your expensive lenses with out compromising the picture

    I have plenty to say about my planinum series filters for my Nikon camera. Packaging is non bulky and made very well. Lens filter case is small and compact so there is no reason you shouldn't have your filters with you. The lens themselves, I love the way they screw on and they never cross thread. The fit perfect every time. Love this product.

    This filter was recommended to me by a Best Buy associate, and I'm glad he did. I'm new in the camera market, so I'm learning as I go. This filter adds a nice clear effecr to my pictures, and protects the main lens from scratches and dust. I definitely recommend this to anyone purchasing a new camera!

    I got this mostly to protect my lense. It works for the most part. Some debris has gotten undernearth. Nothing sever and I do live in a pretty windy area. A little tricky at times to remove but over all it works.

    I mainly bought this filter because the store I went to did not have any 50mm screen caps in stock, so I purchased this filter as a quick fix. The filter works great when I take pictures and I can notice the difference in my images using the filter VS no filter.

    I bought this filter for one of my kit lens. I bought an adapter to change to 58mm which matches my zoom lens so I no longer use this filter. Nothing wrong with this product, just found a more convenient way to use different lens accessories.

    This filter is great for lens protection, feels like a quality filter, but I do notice that the filter makes the images slight soft due to light reflections. So for the cost it is an okay filter but in never like to sacrifice image quality.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    They really have no effect on any photos, more of a protective filter from the sun and say if you drop them lens instead of breaking the glass on your lens you’d just break the filter.
