Overall, I'm super pleased with this product! I saw this effect on a few photos and was so excited to try it myself while shooting a friend's wedding. The kit is super easy to use and creates really fun shapes and effects on both video and photos. My only complaint is that the round disks can tear easily if they aren't taken out of the original plastic sheeting with care. But for the price, it's certainly worth it!

I have made my own bokeh discs before, but when I saw this, it was an instant buy! It is not suitable for a full frame camera. SUPER strong vignette! It was very disappointing. I really wish they were clear about the specifications.

Comments about DIYP Bokeh Masters Kit:

Easy enough to use, and very cool effect, thou you do have to be careful with the "filters" or pieces, as they certainly would not hold up well to a outdoor environment, but for the money, it is a very fun effect, just wish the rubber band that holds the filters on was more durable or better.

        Comments about DIYP Bokeh Masters Kit:

        I would definitely rate this product on a scale of 1 to 10 about a 9! It's very easy to use, and the instructions are very easy to understand, but the one thing I had trouble with was getting the pieces out! They come pre-cut but you still have to pop them out, and it's so easy to break one of the sides off of the main piece which happened to me and I had to tape it back on! I would recommend this product to anyone, but use scissors when taking out the pieces!!

          love this item, works great with my 50mm 1.8, now I use this with fairy lights and the heart shaped bokeh maker my model loves how the photos come out with the shapes.

          I purchased this kit simply because of the ease of use along with the blank disks that come with it as I will probably only use 3 or 4 that come with the kit. I think it is worth the cost just to be able to make my own.

              I'm having fun with this kit, I'm just starting with photography so everything is new to me. The kit is ok, it has a blue piece of plastic(you can see it in the above picture) that you put together to form a box where you can put all the pieces in it, which I try and try but couldn't do it, nothing fit so I threw it in the garbage but other than that it works great.
              I would recommend it. As always B&H shipping and handling was flawless!!!

                  The Bokeh Master Kit is a fun addition to your photography bag. I was amazed at how simple it was and yet provided such stunning results. It fits over any 62mm opening lens, for me that is my 50mm f1.8. The kit comes with a mounting sleeve and 20 precut stencils, most that I like but I can think of a few others such as a heart shape and maybe a four-leaf clover would be more popular than a check mark. But, it does come with several blanks so you can create your own. My only wish is that the kit worked with (or was available for) other lens opening sizes.

                    The bokeh masters kit is very simple to use and is great during the holiday season with all of the Christmas lighting. It is also very good for creating a unique background for portraits. It may take some getting used to when it comes to setting up shots with this product, but in the end it is not difficult to achieve the desired result.

                        This is a product for anyone who is huge into both Nighttime and Experimental Photography. Personally speaking its one of the best things I've spent my money on recently and it really allows for some creative photos. The great thing about it is they give you blank filters to create your own shapes and images. If your really creative you will make your own definate buy for any photographer with a nifty 50 (50mm Lens) that has an f-stop of 1.8

                        I have made my own bokeh discs before, but when I saw this, it was an instant buy! It is not suitable for a full frame camera. SUPER strong vignette! It was very disappointing. I really wish they were clear about the specifications.

                        Comments about DIYP Bokeh Masters Kit:

                        great for special effects for bokeh video and pictures. construction is cheap but does the job. This thing is held on to the lense with a rubber band!
