    Thousand Oaks Optical SBP1212 reviews

    Silver-Black Polymer White-Light Solar Filter Film (12 x12" Sheet) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed for eclipse and additional solar views I used this first for the solar eclipse - it worked wonderfully to create a solar filter for the small tracking scope that I used to do observations with. I like the yellowish color given the sun instead of the bluish color my previous filter provided. In addition, this filter has not appeared to be damaged by dew condensation, which did occur with my previous choice. So, this material enabled a wonderful viewing opportunity and will continue to do so!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff for sun/eclipse photography! I waited too long to order a pre-made filter for shooting the 2017 eclipse, so I purchased this film and made my own. This worked perfectly, and has allowed me to capture sun and partial eclipse images with a nice yellow-orange color with visible sun spots. I used it with a Canon 300mm 2.8 IS + 1.4x TC on a 7D2, which calculates out to a 672mm equivalent FOV. Making the filter for the Canon 300 was incredibly easy, since I knew the end of the lens happens to be exactly the same diameter as the lid for a Pyrex 2-cup container. About 10 mins of work with an Xacto knife on a replacement lid from a local store plus some gaffer tape to attach the film to the lid, and I had my DIY solar filter. I couldn't be happier with the results and tremendous value vs some other filters out there. Highly recommended if you're going to be using a similar setup to mine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive solution for solar viewing and imaging Worked very well for the 2017 eclipse, used for photography in front of a 300mm lens. (I made a filter holder out of foam core board, foam rubber, and duct tape.) Also useful for viewing--I held a sheet in front of my face, which worked better than eclipse glasses with my own eyeglasses. Thanks, B&H for having this in stock just a week or so before the eclipse. And thanks for keeping the price reasonable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product and price for solar viewing I purchased the Thousand Oaks Optical Solar filter for the 2017 eclipse. Originally I was going to buy a screw in solar filter, but these are really expensive, especially for a 95mm lens. In the end I was able to obtain the same performance for $25. The Thousand Oaks product produces a nice orange image when shooting the sun, which is pleasing to the eye. The only thing I noted was that it pays to keep your fingers off the filter as much as possible because it is easily marked. First time users may be concerned with some wrinkling which may appear, depending on how you attach the filter to the lens. Some wrinkling has no affect on the appearance of photos. Most people simple wrap the filter film over the end of the lens. This is workable, but I was lucky to have access to a 3D printer, so I made my own adapter which I mounted to the lens; then taped all 4 sides of the filter down to the adapter, so as to ensure there were no light leaks. Overall - great product for a terrific price, that enables just as good a photograph as the more expensive offerings.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well for the eclipse The silver black polymer worked well on my zoom lens and binoculars. The film is tough and didn't crinkle or tear when I taped it over the lens. Got some good photos of the eclipse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for building filter for large lens I used the film to build my own filter for large camera lens. Used the filter to take pictures of the solar eclipse.
