    It is very cheap!!! Regular CPL polarizing filters cost at least 5 times more. It is not ment for photography professionals but it does a really good job (the clouds are more detailed and the sky is much less pale). The effect cant be compared to the professional ones. It is better to turn it to the right otherwise it can be easily unscrewed. Reduces ... Read more

    At least, it is cheap. But... you get what you pay for, and no more pros are available for that price. The quality of the polarizer is poor. A simple polarizer test can be done using any LCD screen. If you place the polarizer in front of the LCD and rotate it, you will notice the maximum and a minimum in brightness. A good polarizer blanks the light ... Read more

    - Build quality is better than expected. - CPL filters always cost much more than 7 dollars. - It does the minimum it's supposed to do. - It fits my Sony Alpha 100 perfectly. - The product is exactly what is announced. - No angle markings, so I'm still learning how make it work well. - It doesn't filter all the polarized light, but I really can't complain ...

    - Blocks virtually light that was polarized in the selected direction. - Does not add any colour cast to reflections or the overall scene - Spins smoothly and quietly - Fits my 55 mm thread - I got different packaging and a different filter, with no mention of Massa. - When the sun is at certain angles, the filter adds lens-flare type artifacts. It'... Read more

    Works well on my Sony alfa 450 the thead is good screwing on and off of my lenses have used it continously now for 6 months with no sign of any thread wear or binding. Fingerprints on both sides which means the packaging into the cases could do with some improvement but with a good clean all is well. When I look at the silly prices I could pay for this ...

    - Very good build quality. - Works perfect on my friends camera. - Gives good shots! - Nice package with a good case for the lens. - English information. - The price could have been a bit lower. Cost almost the same at my local store. Ordered first wrong filter. But my friend have use for it now. So I have now ordered a second filter to fit on my EOS ... Read more

    Very cheap for a CPL filter, it costs about a third of what I'd have to pay for a similar quality filter in a local photo shop. Truly CPL - will work perfectly on a DSLR, no metering or autofocus problems. No handle or angle markings, so the angle has to be set visually. Quite hard to turn sometimes and threading is not perfect. This filter is about ... Read more

    Massa has great filters. I bought several models in past, this is for sony alpha350 lenses. Polarizer is good for removing reflections if light anlge is correct. So this filter is a circular polarizer for autofocus. This works like a charm. Pelase note that,this filter is like natural gray. My other filter for my olympus is much darker. Pricing is very ...

    Has a nice smooth action to it, when you rotate to change the direction of polarisation. As with everything in photography, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't screw this directly onto my camera lens because I would be scared it wouldn't come back off. The thread seems very weak, and it takes some handy work to get it onto the lens. It does what it'... Read more

    -I bought this CPL filter for my Fuji FinePix S5600 camera with a 55mm lens thread. Perfect fit & black in color so it matches the camera body. -The filter screws on to the camera. It also has the capability by which additional filters can be attached onto it. In the video I've uploaded you can see a UV filter attached to the CPL filter. I had also ... Read more
