This Master 150mm Filter Holder Kit from Benro is designed to allow for the use of up to two 150mm-wide, 2mm-thick filters, along with an included circular polarizer filter, on a wide-angle lens with 95mm or 77mm front filter threads without vignetting. Besides the circular polarizer, this kit contains two additional filters that can be used individually or in various combinations to improve the results of your photography. Those filters consist of a 150 x 150mm solid neutral density 4-stop filter, as well as a 150 x 170mm graduated neutral density 3-stop filter.
Along with this kit's Master 150mm Filter Holder, 95mm filter holder adapter ring, 77-95mm step-up ring, three filters, and two filter wrenches, a light tent is provided along with a padded pouch. If a jammed or over-tightened screw-on filter requires removal from a lens before using this kit's adapter ring or step-up ring to mount the filter holder, the squeeze-type filter wrenches can help to enhance grip and leverage around a filter ring. Together, the wrenches are compatible with filters ranging from 46 to 72mm and 67 to 82mm in diameter.
By covering the sides of the filter holder during use, the light tent can be used to eliminate stray light, which could have unwanted effects on exposure, from coming in-between any installed filters and the filter holder and lens behind it. For storage and transport, the pouch accommodates the entire filter holder kit.

Benro Master Series 95-150mm Step-Up Ring for FH150 Filter Holder
The Benro Master 95mm lens mounting ring enables the Benro Master 150 filter holder to be attached to a 95mm threaded lens.
Benro 77-95mm Step-Up Ring
The 77-95mm Step-Up Ring from Benro is an aluminum-constructed ring that enables you to adapt a larger 95mm size filter onto a 77mm diameter lens, therefore, many different filter sizes can fit on your lens. On wide-angle lenses, the ring's low-profile prevents any vignetting in the image, and the flat black finish on the ring minimizes reflections, which would cause lens flare as well. Additionally, the knurling on the edge allows you to have a firmer grip of the ring when you're putting it on a lens.
Benro Light Tent for 150mm Filter Holder
Prevent stray light from affecting your photos with the Light Tent from Benro, which is designed for their FH150 150mm filter holder. This simple accessory is made of black fabric and goes directly over the holder and whatever filters you have installed, featuring elastic bands on both openings for a tight fit. It blocks unwanted light coming from the sides of your setup, helping you avoid flares or other reflections that can show up on your images and degrade its quality.
Benro 150 x 150mm Master Series ND 1.2 Filter (4-Stop)
The Benro 150 x 150mm Master Series ND 1.2 Filter is a neutral density filter with a 16x filter factor that provides a 4-stop exposure reduction. Its 1.2 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By increasing your aperture or slowing your exposure time, you can control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.
To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, each glass surface includes multiple layers of anti-reflection coating. These coatings also offer greater protection to the filter substrate and help it to stay clean for longer than with uncoated filters. The Nano coating associated with Benro Master Series neutral density filters provides an additional 13th layer over each side of this filter, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.
This filter is constructed from SCHOTT B270 glass for increased optical clarity as well as color fidelity and measures 2mm thick.
Benro 150 x 170mm Master Series Soft Edge Graduated 0.9 ND Filter
Designed with professional landscape photographers in mind, this 150 x 170mm Master Series Soft Edge Graduated 0.9 ND Filter from Benro has an 8x filter factor that provides a 3-stop exposure reduction in selected areas. This specific model features a soft edge in its center, fading gradually from completely clear to darkened as we move towards the top. This allows the filter to keep bright skies under control without creating a line in the image, making it ideal for pictures without a clearly defined horizon line.
The Master Series filters are made with Schott B270 glass and finished with several different layers of coating. These layers increase the resistance of the glass to avoid scratches and help keep the surface waterproof, making it easier to clean when shooting in inclement weather. Additionally, the filter is designed for a neutral performance that avoids affecting color rendition and curtails the unnatural colors found in some pictures with high contrast.
- GND filter featuring a density of 0.9, with a smooth transition from completely clear to the darkened section
- Filter factor of 8x makes for an exposure reduction of 3 stops
- Multi-coated Schott B270 glass construction
- Anti-scratch and waterproof coatings make filter easy to clean and allow for its use in rain or snowy conditions
- Designed to not affect color rendition and eliminate problems with high contrast areas
