Hi all, just wanna chk if there are differences between the Hoya UV(O) and UV(C) filter? What abt the pricing?
Then call the shops to get a quote for it..
Generally, the same type of filter will be more costly, the larger it gets..
any idea how's the 'divipower' filters ? cant seem to find any info on them =(
I see, seems like its prob a cheap / local ? filter bah...
saw it(UV) @ courts $30+, den mscolor @$10+
Very useful to the dummies.

Hi all, I've been trying to research on "ZEIKOS" filters (Made in USA). I'm looking for CPL filters (62mm). Any feedback about these filters / reccomendations for affordable ones? Preferably around $50-$70 price range. Currently shortlisted the Hoya one.
I see. Thanks for the info!
Zeiko filters are made in china. Hoya UV (O) is made of optical glass with UV block features, UV (C) is coated optical glass without UV Block.
What is a good starter GND Filter?
In response to yr questions,
I prefer a slot in filter. One qn: is filter holder brand specific, meaning if i have cokin filter, i only get a cokin filter holder?
I m currently using nikon d7k. Is GND camera specific?
The diameter of my lens is 67mm. I have been advised a bigger slot-in filter would cater to my growing needs, should I acquire a lens with bigger lens diameter.
Budget wise, I would like to knw how much money shld I get ready to spend on a starter decent performance GND and holder cost. For reference, I use Hoya HD filters / CPL. B+H website shows me brands, for eg Cokin, Hitech, B+W, Heliopan, Tiffen etc. I dont know which is a good recommendation. Their Hoya 's biggest size is only 58 mm.

Camera matters because if you are using a FF camera, you will need larger slot in filters for the same focal lengths. The larger sensor will also require a larger filter for the same FOV as a crop sensor camera.
For now, 85mm filters will work for you since 67mm filter thread probably mean you are not using a UWA lens. But once you move to UWA lenses, some of those lenses will vignette with 85mm filter holders.
So for a tighter budget with no UWA lenses: Cokin P series standard holder + Tianya/Cokin filters. (85mm)
For tigther budget with UWA lenses: Cokin P wide angle holder + Tianya/Cokin filters. (85mm)
If have budget: Lee or Hitech holder + Hitech ND and GND filters. (100mm width).
Noticed Red Dot Photo carry Phottix CPL filters, rather competitive price too. Has anybody tried out the brand, any comments / feedback on the pics taken with this brand of filter.
