  • Little use without filter

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good build quality
    Very well priced
    Image quality is good for the monet

    Cons:

    No Infra Red filter
    Minimal packaging
    Can be tricky to install correctly

    OtherThoughts:

    I needed a longer lens for use with my Foscam network camera and at least one of these lenses might fit the bill. These lenses have no filter or coating to reduce infra red light with the result that the image seems to be in black and white with foliage and other features that reflect infra red spoectrum light looking odd.
    So for normal use these lenses are useless unless a filter is fitted. It is possible to obtain a gel i/r filter which can be cut down and fitted to the rear of the lens or secured in front of the lens. This would restore natural colour.

    Bottomline:

    Forget it or fit a filter...
