About Vivitar

The Vivitar 3-Piece UV/CPL/ND8 58mm Filter Kit is manufactured from high-quality solid optical materials. Each individual filter is heat-treated and multi-coated to avoid any rare movement or distortion. The Vivitar's Ultra Violet filters minimize the bluish cast sometimes found under daylight conditions. These filters will render your photos clearer, sharper and with more contrast. They are also the best available protection against accidental damage to the front element of your lens. If you accidentally drop your lens, you will be protected against nicks and scratches. As a lens protector, it should be left on at all times.

The CPL filter is often used to increase the contrast and saturation in blue skies and white clouds. Vivitar's circular polarizing filters do not affect the overall color balance of a shot and they will provide protection for your lens while shooting. Vivitar filters are perfect for digital SLR cameras or traditional 35mm SLR applications.

The Neutral Density filter reduces intensity of all wavelengths or colors of light equally, giving no changes in hue or color rendition. The purpose of standard photographic neutral density filters is to allow the photographer greater flexibility to change the aperture, exposure time and/or blur of subject in different situations and atmospheric conditions. Instead of reducing the aperture to limit light, the photographer can add a ND filter and can then set the shutter speed according to the particular motion desired and the aperture set as needed.

Decent filters for the price

These came as a freebie with my NIkon 50 f1.8G. Not the worst, not the greatest, but they will do for protecting the lens and offering some polarizing/ND options.

I use the polarizer and up filter as lens protectors and they work great. They are inexpensive and really help with cutting back on unwanted light.

Nice set of filters

This was a great addition to my 55mm f/1.4 lens. I attached the UV filter and have left it on. The nice option is that you can continue attaching more filters which I have done. I had the UV & ND8 attached when taking some photos. They came out great. The quality can be felt and seen on these filters.

Vivitar is a trusted name in photography. I do own filters costing much more. I have used the Vivitar UV and CPL filters so far if there is any difference from my more expensive filters I can't really tell. I am very satisfied with this purchase and hope to have a bright sunny day to try the neutral density #8 filter and hopefully give it 5 stars. Give Vivitar a shot I think you'll like them.

I use these products to remove glare or to give me the stop down that I need when outside. They work just as described without any problem.

Bang of the Buck, good quality

By

from Vancouver, Canada  -  Photo Enthusiast

I got this set of filters free from an order of a nikon 50mm lens. My father is a part-time photographer, so I've always known Vivitar as a brand. They have always been a third party filter and accessories maker, so I was anticipating a decent yet very cheap filter, which was fine since it was free. The out come was a filter that even surprised me, the filters were of really good quality, worked well. I am so happy Adorama has given me a chance to test out these filters. At $29.99 they are such incredible.

Nice filters!

Using for my Nikkor AF-S 50mm 1.4G. Just to clear up any questions about what's included with this kit, it contains: (1) UV filter. Series 1 HD Multi-coated. (1) CPL filter. Series 1 HD Multi-coated. (1) ND8 filter. Series 1 HD Multi-coated. (1) Four-pocket filter wallet, as shown in picture. UV filters are pretty much lens protectors. This one does the job. A little more protection for my lens, plus never having to clean the lens glass again? Excellent. The CPL (circular polarizer lens) filter is sweet. I'd never used one before. you rotate the ring on it to remove reflections off of non-metallic reflective surfaces like glass or water, or change the saturation of the sky. Really neat. The ND8 filter knocks out 4 stops of light. Use it to get longer exposure times during daylight. Optical clarity from these filters seem to be good. I haven't done any quantitative tests, but I haven't been disappointed in the sharpness of my photos. They all screw in perfectly, no fitment issues.
