    Good starting polarizing filter

    posted by Totermix87 on 01/07/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    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).
    Cons:
    The effect cant be compared to the professional ones. It is better to turn it to the right otherwise it can be easily unscrewed...

    Not worth buying

    posted by anrus57 on 02/08/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    At least, it is cheap. But... you get what you pay for, and no more pros are available for that price.
    Cons:
    The quality of the polarizer is poor. A simple polarizer test can be done using any LCD screen. If you place the polarizer in f...

    It's worth its price

    posted by thrzb on 01/24/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - 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.
    Cons:
    - No angle markings, so I'm still learning how make it work well.

    A good inexpensive polarizer

    posted by dreamlayers on 09/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - 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
    Cons:
    - I got different packaging and a different filter, with no mention of Massa. - When the sun is at certain angles, the filter a...

    More then perfect for the money

    posted by ilianbg on 03/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    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.
    Cons:
    No handle or angle markings, so the angle has to be set visually. Quite hard to turn sometimes and threading is not perfect.

    polarizer filter is good for wide ange photos

    posted by windman on 02/16/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    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...
    Cons:
    Pricing is very good and there is nothing to complain.

    posted by scott202 on 01/24/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    Has a nice smooth action to it, when you rotate to change the direction of polarisation.
    Cons:
    As with everything in photography, you get what you pay for. I wouldn't screw this directly onto my camera lens because I would...

    Pros:
    -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...
