The Tristar Optics Filter Bonus Pack - A bonus pack of our two most popular filters. The bonus pack includes, (1) Ultra Violet (UV) and (1) Circular Polarizer (C-PL) filter and a handy carry pouch.

This bonus pack it just about the same price as a C-PL filter by itself, so almost its getting the UV Filter for FREE!

52mm Ultra Violet (UV) Filter

  • Advantage: Absorbs UV rays without affecting exposure and protects lenses from scratches.
  • Benefit: Protects your camera or camcorder lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage.
    * This filter can be kept on your camera at all times.
    * No UV rays give better contrast in an image
52mm C-PL Circular Polarizing Filter
  • Advantage: Polarizers provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A Polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly. Removes reflections from non-metallic surfaces.
  • Benefit: Perfect for Bright Sunny days! Increases Color saturation and contrast!
Carrying Pouch
  • Advantage: Holds C-PL filter when not in use.
  • Benefit: Keeps C-PL protected and always handy for the right situation.

A haze or UV filter is a must to protect your lense. It is a bonus when it also protects against UV or offers polarizing effects as these do. These are well made filters thet go on easily.

Storage pouch is great. It is quality construction. Separate pockets protect the filters from damaging each other, but still allow quick access to the filters.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray 52mm Tristar Optics UV & C-PL Filter Bonus Pack Plus Carry Pouch:

I can honestly say that I do not use my camera without these lenses. Mostly due to the fact that I dont want my lenses scratched, but they work great. I especially like the pouch that comes with these. There are pockets for each lens. Very nice!!
I contacted Ritz Camera before purchasing my camera and filters, I have to say that they were wonderful and very professional.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray 52mm Tristar Optics UV & C-PL Filter Bonus Pack Plus Carry Pouch:

These filters seem to work fairly decent however when using both the UV and Polorized filter together I noticed that when I shoot with my lense at wide angle (55mm) that I can see the edges of the lense housing in the pics. I have to zoom out some in order to correct this. It's not that big of a deal to me but it is annoying if I happen to forget this flaw then see it after downloading my pictures.. I havent had any other filters to compare these to so I cant realy say if their better or worse than some others. Next time i'll try a different brand just for comparison. Im using a Nikon D60 with the supplied 55-200mm lense.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray 52mm Tristar Optics UV & C-PL Filter Bonus Pack Plus Carry Pouch:

This is a good value for the money as you would need a UV filter for the protection of your expensive lens anyway and a Polarizing filter is a nice to have accessory that would be one of the first accessories to buy anyway. A nice setup; however the difficulty I have with this is that the filter case is a bit annoying as I am continually putting my fingerprints all over the filters as I try to pull them out of the pouch.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray 52mm Tristar Optics UV & C-PL Filter Bonus Pack Plus Carry Pouch:

This is a great combonation to purchase. I purchased two new lens and bought this package and one additional UV filter to protect my other lens. I Use the UV filter on every lens I own to protect the actual lens from scratches and apply the CP filter to cut through the glare of glass or water and to enhance the colors of the sky. The CP Filter takes some practice to get consistant results as you have to spin a ring to chage the effect. CAUTION: be careful of adjusting the CP ring when in manual focus as it is very easy to get lens out of focus depending on the location of your lens focus ring. overal, great product and worth while purchase.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray 52mm Tristar Optics UV & C-PL Filter Bonus Pack Plus Carry Pouch:

I really wish that they did not bother with the carrying case thing it is just an opportunity for dust to collect on the filters. Possibly even scratch them is you happen to get the pockets contaminated with a couple of grains of sand or dirt blown in from the wind. It really would have been better to have a sealable hard plastic container to put them in. My mother had an old Agfa 35mm with several filters that would fit into there own separate plastic containers with screw on caps. They would all lock together so you could carry it in one piece and easily access which ever filter you wanted to use in a matter a seconds. It’s amazing how something that is over 40 years old could be superior to something new.
