    Great Lens for Outdoor Photos

    I initially bought this lens to use with a 50mm 1.8g lens on my D500. The polarizer attaches on easily and allows for a lens cap once you decide to store the camera away with the entire assembly. Once attached, the polarizing lens allows for 360 rotation without fearing that it will unscrew off the lens! Cool feature that really shows how colors pop & reflections disappear when I’m using the camera on liveview. A must have when filming outdoors also!

    Poor quality - not recommended

    Purchased two filters prior to vacation to hopefully enhance photos to be taken. Should have checked filters before using. Horrible. All pics taken with filters were fuzzy, lost many once in a lifetime shots because of their poor quality. Had camera checked - perfect working order. Lesson learned - only use top of the line filters. Do not waste money on this brand of filters and at this store. They do not stand behind their products.

    At some point, I do plan on investing in a more sophisticated filter for my camera, but I was in a bind, and needed to get a polarized filter for a project real quick. I picked this up at Best Buy, and it did the job just fine. It was pretty good for the cost. I’d recommend it, especially if you want something decent, but don’t want to spend three times as much. It does the job just fine.

    Being a newbie to DSLR Camera Land, I was eager to find a polarizing filter for my Nikon D3300. While I'd never heard of this brand, the store had a good sale on it so it was worth a shot. The filter works really well and provides wonderful color saturation in outdoor shots. Vivid color. And the case it came with is nice for storage. Will look to this brand again for future filter purchases.

    Got this to act both as a lens protector and a filter. It’s worth putting on a lens just in case it’s dropped or impacted. I’d rather replace an inexpensive filter than have to buy a whole new lens. As far as the polarization, works just as you’d expect it to. Allows you to adjust the orientation for use in different situations. Good buy

    Very Good Filter

    This filter does exactly what I need quite well. First, it protects my lens from bologna fingers when I try to replace the lens cap. It's easier to clean the filter than the lens, not mention safer. Using a UV seems to help me control by exposures. Second, while I do use a hood under most outdoor circumstance, this filter does not cause reflections or haze in my images when I do not.

    Good filter for camera

    I am not an expert in using SLR camera. But from my perspective this particular lens filter is good enough to shoot outdoor pictures. I particularly tried it to shoot images of water beds and they came out to be better than bare lens. Again it is good for price. There are even more expensive filters in market but I found this filter sufficient for my needs

    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.

    A line of high quality, reasonably priced filters

    Best Buy's Platinum brand filters have both the look and feel of high quality products at reasonable prices. This polarising filter is an example. It's a very well-made filter. Multi-coated polarising filters from well-known quality manufacturers similar in quality to this one usually cost twice as much. Save money and get this one.

    I recommend always having these on your camera lenses. They will definitely happen in the off-chance that your lens gets dropped and potentially prevent damage. Also helps protect the camera sensor on the camera long term from UV light.

    good for kit lenses

    This polarizer is fine for your kit lenses, If you are using high end lenses, you will probably want to invest in a different (more expensive) polarizer. This polarizer is multicoated, which reduces the likeliness of ghosting and internal reflections that can make your photos less appealing. The polarizing function works as it should.

    Works fine on Sony video camera

    Using on a Sony TRV-900. Have not tried outdoors yet. In doors, for a show with stage lighting it worked fine and did not reduce the sensitivity of the camera in the low light situation. I like to use a filter mostly as protection for the lens from accidently being touched and to keep dust off of it.

    I was told by a great photographer that I should get a polarizing filter and the colors would be more vibrant and less water reflections would result. He was more than right! I have a much better appreciation for what this filter does for my limited skills as a casual shutterbug.

    Bought this for my Nikon D3100 - didn't even know there were still accessories for my camera. A gentleman at best buy was kind enough to talk to me about cameras and I ended up purchasing this lens. I can now take better daylight pictures with it.

    I needed 4 polarizers for a set of driving goggles I was building. These were perfect as they have a bit of resistance when rotating them, plus using dual polarized lenses not only can you eliminate glare, you can adjust light intensity.

    This filter is exactly what you need to protect that really expensive Nikon lens. It protects the lens from damage of any kind, and is inexpensive to replace. I would rather destroy a filter, and have to replace it rather than damage a Nikon lens. Thanks!

    If you're buying a polarizer, you're of course buying it to reduce or control the amount of glare and reflection in a image, which it does. Works as expected, has not given me any troubles since buying it. Also doubles as protection for the lens itself.

    I've always envied the people who go out on the water and in the snow and take the best pictures without the glare. This lens filter solves that problem. Its great for a sunny day and will make the difference. Its like sunglasses for your camera!

    CP filter works great, and not to mention if you purchase 3 camera accessories you get 25% off the total, so ended up getting a tripod, UV filter, and CP filter for for $108.XX and i had $100 gift card, so i got the filters for $4 a piece, pretty great deal!

    The sun was really intense in Arizona, so I dropped into a BestBuy shop and picked up this filter. It worked really well reducing the glare. Sunglasses for my lens! No issues with color cast.
