    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.

    works well as a lens protector

    This is the filter we buy to serve as a lens protector – as opposed to leaving our camera lens unprotected. I'd much rather clean a fingerprint off of a filter than the actual lens surface. Also, there's at least a filter to help keep those errant pebbles from destroying our investment.

    UV filters like this are just for keeping your camera lens safe. But this one actually does more than that and gives you a very sharp image and protects your shot from lens flares that ruin your favorite shot on your vacation. A must have for amateur photographers

    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 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    We mainly purchased this as a protective barrier for the lens and we are glad we did. It is easy to put on and take off and keeps all dust off the actual lens. We keep this on pretty much at all times.

    I bought this UV filter as most people do for the purposes of protecting my lens. This has done exactly that. The build quality is nice and the glass is even and impeccable. The threads fit on my 55mm diameter 28-70mm Sony lens.

    Took this filter on a trip to Europe and it worked well with filtering especially on early morning water photos. I would recommend to anyone purchasing a new camera.

    I was not sure if my lens cap would fit over the filter. I was pleasantly surprised that it did. I don't need the lens cap with the filter, but it does fit and I like to have it on when I am not using the camera.

    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.

    This Platinum 55mm lens filter is perfect for protecting your valuable lenses. Not only does it fit well, but it also helps block those sun rays and bright skies to keep that crisp blue sky in your photos.
