Designed for consumers who prefer creating their effects naturally "in camera" instead of spending hours at a computer, our FX filter kit delivers Star, Soft Focus and Warming-three popular effect filters all in one convenient package. And, to ensure maximum appeal, it's available in a wide range of thread sizes for both camcorder and camera owners .
Polaroid filters continue the brand's long legacy of superior optical solutions. All our filters are carefully formulated to ensure consistent color and accuracy throughout the entire surface of the glass. Why? Consistent color means consistent high quality results. We know that a poorly made filter makes a great lens and camera worthless, that's why the our frame rings are constructed of special alloys that won't expand or contract over time or due to temperature extremes-it's also why we back our filters with an 10 year warranty-because we engineer them to last.
Like all Polaroid optics, Polaroid filters are precision manufactured to the most demanding of tolerances. This ensures consistent high quality results even after years of use.
Soft Focus Filter: Ideal For Portraits As It Softens Smaller Details Like Blemishes And Wrinkles While Maintaining Consistent Exposure
Revolving 4 Point Star Filter: Adds A Dazzling 4 Pointed "Star" Effect To Any Light Source. With The Revolving Filter You Can Turn And Adjust The Filter To Your Desired Results
Warming Filter: When it comes to turning a drab dusk into a stunning sunset or subtle skin tones into striking ones this is all the filter you will ever need. No wonder it's a hot choice with pros
I'll tell what I know about these filters and my experience using them. First I'll say that this is good quality equipment from the filters to the four pocket case. There is better glass but you won't be disappointed by the value of your purchase, so on to the filters.
Warming: This will give you a change in your color temperature which is useful in inaccurate lighting or for sunsets. But for digital users these settings are available through your program and you may not find it very necessary.
Soft Focus: This provides a diffusion and creates a hazy effect that's really nice for some portraits. It seems to reduce contrast in a good way and is different than what your program provides.
4X Star: This creates an effect where light seems to burst from lights in a four star pattern and can be very interesting when shooting low light, but with lights. I've never seen this effect done digitally but in our world it seems anything's possible.
If you are starting out and are looking for some good filters to start of with, these are nice. Three different filters, simple enough to learn with if you are new with filters. The warming and soft focus are both really nice for portrait photography. The 4 point star one is nice with night scenes or a low lite area with a candle or something along those line. It is worth getting and nice price.
The soft focus filter is a piece of plain glass. Really, it does absolutely nothing. See photo and try to guess which one had the soft focus filter. Any ideas why this is happening?
The other two filters are ok, but I primarily bought this for the soft focus.
