    Vitacon is just a Singapore relabeling company. They buy cheap whatever they can find, label it as Vitacon and try to sell it. Feel free to try but don't be surprised about any negative effects. On the other hand, "garbage in - garbage out" also applies to photography. There is a reason why quality costs some money. Get a decent one (e.g. Hoya or similar brand), there is also a Filter Guide by daredevil123 for your reading pleasure.

    you didn't state the filter size.

    eg. 52mm and 77mm filters have quite a significant price difference.
    Exploring! :)

    filtersize is 67 or 72

    btw when you say it's bad, does that mean it doesn't have the capability to filter excess light as it used to be or any other negative effect?

    D-Wade, are you looking for CPL filter (Polarizing Filter) or ND filter (Neutral Density Filter). They have different function.
