    Not suitable for photos, zero rating if i could

    Based on price I assumed it would be a mediocre filter and I was fine with that, the positive online reviews were encouraging so I bought it as brand new I am finding it difficult to comply with the review guidelines in terms of criticizing other reviewers, or mentioning other products, but I thought others must be warned, even created an account just to provide this feedback Please note that this filter is not suitable for taking photos, it may make a great screw on lens cap, but it obliterates detail and smears the image, it is particularly noticeable at longer focal lengths. After some online research, I understood that what I was seeing is actually typical for cheaply made filters... there is nothing platinum about this one and you might as well screw on the bottom of a coke bottle to your lens

    The polarizer works as needed but adds slightly more vignette than I would prefer in a photo. Very noticeable in sky photos, or sunset pictures I’ve taken. Overall I think it’s a quality product and is worth the money. But if you’re looking for top shelf quality you’ll have to pay top shelf price. I bought this lens after damaging my lens and I didn’t have time to order one before a trip to the beach.

    I recently took a tour to Denver Colorado, and had this fitted on my D7100 + Nukon 18-70 MM lens. with the polarizer on I got some amazing results on the cloudscapes, really worth investing. However I felt the colors sometimes look little out of natural. Nevertheless I would definitely recommend

    I was looking for an inexpensive polarizing filter. I'd have probably purchased a more expensive one if it was available. I know that inexpensive filters don't review as well as better quality glass. Having said that, I used it on a recent cruise and it did a nice job of killing the reflections in the water. I'm happy with the purchase.

    I needed a polarizer for a new lens the day before leaving town and I was pleased that Best Buy had this in my local store to purchase on the spot. I've bought cheaper ones online before, but this seems like a quality product and I believe it will last a long time. It worked very well on my trip to Italy and I'm go glad I had it for those gorgeous landscape photos.

    Defocused pictures - don't use!

    I shot a number of pictures with this filter on a Nikon VR lens using fast shutter speeds (to eliminate camera shake), and found that it defocused the pictures noticeably. I returned it and replaced it with another brand and had no problems. I did use it stacked on a UV filter, so there may have been some interaction, but I also replaced the UV filter, so it could have contributed.

    Ever since my wife got into photography, I can always count on Best Buy to have what I'm looking for. Be it online or in store, I tend to be a review nut and always check others feedback. I needed a polarized filter.... Reviews very good. End of story. Thanks Best Buy! Great prices, always got what I need.

    this does exactly what it is supposed to. Shoot rich high-contrast photos with help from this Platinum PT-MCCP67 screw-on filter, which attaches to most digital camera lenses with a 67mm thread and improves color saturation with reduced reflection and glare.

    Trying to film my sons football game without this filter was rough. It made a huge difference with the quality and keeping the light out so it’s not so over exposed. I recommend this lense for sure if outdoor filming or photos. Using a Canon 80d with 18-135 lense.

    I mainly use this when shooting near water (rivers lakes Ext) you can really cool an image down real easy and saves you editing time if this is your style . Really easy to put on but you kind of have to use your name to remove

    I purchased the wrong size for my camera so I wasn’t able to use it so the review is based on packaging and appearance. It was kept well in a sturdy box and looked great. Will purchase the correct size soo

    This absolutely made my photos better in bright daylight photos. Without it attached to my lens, there was a lot of colorless bright white. With it. The sky was a deep blue and it enhance the subject that I photographed.

    There are moments when a CPL is necessary and can be effective. This filter is rather blurry. If you are OK with that, then it can be a handy one to have. Again, it was not a cheap lens and I was hoping for a crisper/cleaner result. Do not use for bird or wildlife photography.

    Price is great! It does was it says it's supposed to do. I put this filter on - Because I live in Hawaii I shoot very sunny days and scenes. So this is a very necessary item and it brings out the colors very nicely.

    A must to cut down on glare and tone down bright spots in compositions. Circular polarizers allow for adjusting the filter to the source. Good product. Essential in bright and harsh lighting situations especially with water in the image.

    Perhaps not the clarity and such of high end filters but for my purposes it works fine. I'm not a professional photographer and not sure I would notice the difference between images taken with a high end filter vs this one.

    I got this for my 18-135mm lens. Fits perfectly and works great. Nicely made and comes with a plastic case to keep from scratching it when it’s not on.

    Good quality polarizing lens filter. You can truly see the difference by using this lens filter. Colors pop out in your picture especially on overcast days where natural lighting is not up to par compared to a sunnier day.

    This filter replaced a similar one for a different camera. Works very well for outside photos if you are looking to enrich the natural colors. Makes the sky a deep blue. Highly recommend for landscape photography.

    I bought this for an upcoming trip to Kenya and to go with my new 18 to 300 mm zoom lens. Looking to get more definition in the sky for lanscape photos. This should fill the bill
