Product Highlights
  • Protects your Lens
  • Eliminates Reflections and Glare
  • Reduces Haze and Blue Cast in Landscapes
  • Greater Color and Tonal Saturation
  • 12-Layer Multicoatings
  • Close to 99% Light Transmission (UV)
  • Anodized Aluminum Filter Rings
  • Includes Storage Pouch

The Luminesque 52mm Multi Coated Filter Kit contains two essential filters for general photography applications. Both filters feature a 12-layer multicoating, which minimizes light reflection. This kit also includes a handy storage pouch.

The UV Filter offers close to a 99% transmission rate. The aluminum filter rings are anodized, which makes them durable and minimizes thread jamming. UV Filters are useful as general lens protectors-they guard the lens elements against dust, moisture, water, residues and grit, as well as drops, impacts or scrapes. This filter absorbs ultraviolet light and reduces haze and flare. No additional coloration or contrast is created by this filter; as a result, it can be stacked with other filters.

Polarizing filters intensify the color of an image by eliminating reflective glare, which in turn makes it possible to capture more saturated color and more contrast. A Polarizer makes white clouds seem whiter, deepens the blue of the sky, and allows you to see the stones beneath the reflective surface of a creek. The effect is strongest when used at a 90-degree angle from the sun.

For best results, Polarizers should be used when the sun is behind you, preferably about 30° off your left or right shoulder. Polarizers are unique because they are among the few filters whose effects cannot be mimicked electronically. Electronic Polarizing filters used in post production are pretty good at emulating the saturated colors rendered by Polarizing filters, but they cannot reduce or eliminate glare and reflections the way glass Polarizers do at the moment the image is made.

12-layer multi-coating provides a light transmission rate of close to 99%.
Anodized aluminum filter ring provides durability and resistance to jamming for easy threading.

UV Filter

General protection filter blocks dust, moisture, and scratches from lens elements.
Clear filter provides no additional coloration or contrast, allowing you to pair this filter with others.
Absorbs UV light and reduces bluish cast of daylight.

Circular Polarizer Filter

Helps to reduce reflections and glare by filtering out light that has become polarized due to reflection from a non-metallic surface.
Provides more saturated, vivid colors in landscape photos.
Makes skies bluer and clouds pop.
Allows seeing stones under the surface of the river.
Circular polarizers are ideal for use with digital cameras and autofocus lenses where a linear polarizer will often disrupt auto exposure and focus features.

      I usually put a UV filter on my lenses as a "safety" to protect the glass for casual use but often remove them while really shooting unless they are NEEDED. Polarizers are another matter- I don't often use them but ALWAYS have them around in case of need.

      I have not really needed either of these yet, and have not used them much, but they do work as expected.

      The only con I can think of is that the mounting rings seem to be a lower quality than the filters I usually buy- not horrible, just not as smooth going on and off. Better to save money on filter threads than the glass though.

                        Standard filters. They thread on easily and do the job, but they seem to be a bit difficult to clean.

                        Take care when mounting the polarizing filter as it tends to deform under pressure when removing.

                                I was excited that these came free with my lens and more happy to see the results. I wasn't sure what to buy in the way of filters, and this took away the guess work. They are nice for protecting the lens and improve the quality of the picture

                                These filters have performed well so far. I do not have much experience yet with circular polarizers as I am new to photography, but this filter appears to work great. I tested it by taking pictures of water and it greatly reduced the amount of reflection.
