Plastic and resin filter systems consists
of a modular filter holder capable of accepting up to three filters at
once. Through the use of a simple threaded adaptor ring that slips onto
the holder, the whole arrangement can be easily fitted to lenses of
almost any size.
This special system consists of over 200
individual components, almost all of which are made of high grade
optical quality plastic or resin material. The filters come in two
sizes, labeled A or P. A filter cover lenses with front diameters
between 36mm and 62mm. The P filters cover the larger lenses, from 42mm
At the heart of the system are the
filters and many creative front-lens attachments. These range from the
familiar IN, Polarizers, and color filters to a bewildering array of
filters for special effects. They may be intended to soften, refract,
reflect, diffuse, get close, multiply images, create zoom effects,
imply motion, mask, multiply expose, and on and on.
Another good thing to take note is any of
the system filters can be broken, for instance, dropping one from your
hand to the floor, and it would not cause any damage at all. They are
also scratch resistant. And even if the surface is scratched, the
filter may remain serviceable because they are dyed in their molten
state at which time color dye permeates the entire filter uniformly
from top to bottom.
It provides a wide choice of filters to
attach to the front of the lens, and that is great as long as with
proper usage. Attaching too much filter altogether might come up with
funny result that might not be the one intended. Thus we will need to
understand the usage of various filters before attaching it together to
get the desired image that we want.
