          Just screw on lens and look for some night time action..taking pics prior were just dull and flat...with this lens it adds so much character to your nightlife photos.

            It's a simple product, but the result you get through the camera is really something else. The build is sturdy and the star-effect is very surreal and an awesome change in bokeh.

                        Used this for my christmas card photo. Worked nicely on the lights on the garland behind my subject. Better than the in-camera cross screen effect.

                                Creates an effective star pattern on light sources and reflections. I have also used it to soften the focus on portraits of women.
