Sunpak CF-7078-TW-MW overview

  • 1Description

This Sunpak 52mm Filter Kit includes a 52mm UV Filter and a 52mm Circular Polarizer Filter. Each filter in this kit fits a lens with 52mm front filter threads and can provide one of two enhancements to your imagery. Additionally, these filters are constructed from optical glass within an aluminum-alloy frame, which protect the front element of a lens from scratches, bumps, or impacts. A filter case that can accommodate both filters is included for storage and transport.

The Sunpak 52mm UV Filter is a general use, clear filter designed to absorb ultraviolet light and reduce the bluish cast of daylight. Aside from the reduction of unwanted blue casts, no additional coloration or contrast is created, and adjustments to exposure are not required while using this filter.

This UV filter is also useful as a general protective filter to leave on lenses at all times. Such filters help to reduce dust and moisture from reaching your front lens element and provide additional protection in case of drops or situations where scratching could occur.

The Sunpak 52mm 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. The light from the sun naturally becomes partially polarized due to reflecting off electrons in air molecules, causing the light to scatter into what appears as haze. A polarizing filter arranges, and filters, this directionally polarized light perpendicularly to the reflected light, allowing for the absorption of much of this light. This results in a noticeable reduction of glare and reflections from non-metallic surfaces and an increase in the saturation of skies and foliage.

A circular polarizer only differs from a linear polarizer in that it contains a quarter wave plane in addition to the linear polarizing filter. The addition of this quarter wave plane is to circularly polarize the linearly polarized light for the use of auto focus and exposure functions. Due to how the light is broken down and filtered with a linear polarizer, auto focus and exposure accuracy become skewed during use. When the light becomes circularly polarized, it permits the use of these functions.

The Sunpak 52mm UV Filter and Sunpak 52mm Circular Polarizer Filter are both non-coated and are constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. Additionally, they each feature an aluminum-alloy filter ring for durability while remaining lightweight.

    Sunpak CF-7078-TW-MW reviews

    52mm UV and Circular Polarizer Filter Kit is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from As expected for a free add-on item. Everything about these filters feel and appear cheaply made which is what I normally expect with Sunpak products. Aside from that I have experienced some unwanted glare in some photos caused by the extra element of cheap glass. With that said they will work in a pinch if you need them and can protect your front element of your lens in some cases. If you choose to utilize filters I would suggest spending the extra money and getting quality filters. If that is not an option for you then these may give you acceptable results in some cases.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome filters + I got this SunPak UV + CP filter kit when I recently purchased my Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM lens as a freebie! + What I love about this kit is that it includes probably 2 of the most important lens filters. The UV filter is my everyday protector and the CP filter is when I need that added contrast/detail, especially when shooting landscapes/skyscapes, and for cancelling reflections when shooting through glass! + I can't say I dislike anything about this filter kit! It's a nice starter pack for any new lenses. + Overall? I was really thankful to receive this as part of a kit from B&H! Thank you! =

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Free Filters! The Filter Kit was received as a premium for a lens purchase. At the recommendation of another photographer I stopped using UV filters as lens protection, and haven't yet had an occasion to use the polarizer. However, they are quality filters, and the same brand as those I've purchased. So, if I need to cut the haze while traveling (I live in the Florida Keys where we've outlawed haze), or subdue sunlight reflected off the water I know these filters will do the job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from EF40mm complimented It came as a gift with the EF40mm pancake Lens I purchased. I know my Lens is now protected with the UV filter, I have yet to test the circular polarizer and I'm sure it'll work great. I wouldn't purchase my photo gear anywhere else but B&H. Their products always ship on time and packaged well. Customer support is always excellent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from effective It certainly does what it says and cultivates a 'type' of photo that may or may not be in line with your taste, but colorwise I have noticed a lot more detail. In lower light it tends to bring out the 'unnecessary' light-details more so it gets messier. Beautiful effect! Don't screw it on tight or you'll never get it off.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Exasperating to be sure. Got the filter kit for FREE when I purchased a Nikon 40 mm lens. Its pretty hard to rate the filters as the cheap plastic case has refused to open. I have used pliers, a vice, heat and cold without success. I rate the case a minus 5. Will do a review of the filter kit when I bust open the case.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice bonus with lens These filters came free with the 35mm 1.8 Nikon lens I ordered. So far I have not noticed any issues with their use. Always nice to get free stuff with your order when you didn't expect it...that's why I continue to shop at B&H!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from So, so. I'm not really highly convinced on these products, but it came free with the Nikkor lens 35mm 1.8 so what can I say. Free is a good price! It can, however, help keep the dust away from your lens. :) :) :)
