Polar Pro Variable ND filter - Peter Mckinnon Edition

1 year 1 month ago #638589 by Nefarious
$449 for the pair?  Jury is still out to lunch on this.  However, these filters look pretty convincing.  You Tube recommended me a video on these filters earlier.  



Now, do I spend nearly 1.5x cost of other options for these filters?  I don't suppose any of you have experience with this companies other filters do you?  Actually that would be helpful to know.  Please share your opinion of their filters.  Build quality?  Are there marketing claims on the dot or exaggerated?  

Thanks!

Oh and here is the link if you haven't seen these filters yet.  -

Agree a little high compared to other options.   I like, but my wallet is saying to hold off and wait till more reviews come in.  What I do like is the numbers on the side that tell you specifically where you are stopped at.  Which I'm surprised no one else has included.  

Wasn't me :)

I am using a full range various from an other well know
maker with success and at a third of the price.

It's an impressive filter set up.  With out reading more on it, seeing user reviews, it's tough to make a pass or buy decision.

Numbers on the side are a big win.  If it works as it they claim, yeh, awesome.  Pricey, but that would pay for itself perhaps.

I was under the impression that fixed ND filters generally had better image quality than variable. Is that not the case?

Obviously within reason. I know that a $300 variable is going to be better than a $30 fixed.

As for Peter's ND filter, it certainly looks impressive, but then he's a very good salesman, so it's definitely worth waiting for the reviews. The numbers on the side are a great idea though. Mine doesn't have that, and it means there's a bit more trial and error involved.

Just to clarify, are you talking about a variable ND?

Nice filter, but priced high.  Likely to cover royalty check to Peter.
