Cheapo Circular polarizing filters?!

Hi all,

I've managed to lose my 72mm polarizer on a recent trip, and was having a look on a famous online auction site for a replacement and have come across many options for under a tenner!

Has anybody tried the cheaper versions, and if so how did you find the results?

I've always used good quality filters in the past but start to get the hump with myself when I lose a £50-60 filter in a field somewhere

Thanks,
Steve

Re: Cheapo Circular polarizing filters?!

I have used expensive and cheap ones and found no difference though probably the thinner the better to avoid vignetting, 72mm is large and would not come that cheap, remember to get a circular rather than a linnear one.

Try London Camera Exchange, if you have a store near you. I picked up a second hand 77mm branded polarizing filter for £20. Regards

Thanks for the replies.

I've seen some cheap versions advertised on fleabay, cheapest started at around £5 for a 72mm! Guess it's worth a try

If I get one I'll post the results
