Lens filters are translucent pieces of glass placed in front of a camera lens to alter or adjust the light entering the camera and more importantly to protect the camera lens. Lens filters improve photographs by giving photographers control over light and allowing them to emphasize the features of a scene that they consider most important.
This filter kit is a combination of the three essential filters no photographer should be without.
Film and a digital CCD are more sensitive to UV light than our eyes are. This often shows up in images shot from high altitudes and long distances especially over water. This filter will remove the UV light and more importantly protect your lens from moisture, scratches, and damage.
provides color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as a whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A polarizing filter will correct this problem creating deep blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces such as windows and water.
provides color correction when shooting under fluorescent lighting. It will remove the greenish tint from the image, providing pleasing skin tones and true to life color renditions.
compact protective carrying case for transporting and storing your set of filters when not in use.

Are these the best choice?
By bill hansen
from Ithaca NY, USA
I acted on impulse and bought this kit of three filters at the same time I bought my NEX 6 with 16-50mm kit lens. I suspect they are a "price point" kit of three filters, meant to encourage purchase, which is just the way they worked for me. They are remarkably inexpensive, and the small padded case makes them very easy to carry. For some non-critical uses these filters might be fine. For the "walkabout" photographer these filters offer an inexpensive way to learn what filters can do, and what they can not do. But to get the best image quality out of any lens, either no filter at all, or the best filter one can afford, should be the choice. I now wish I had shopped around somewhat more before buying filters for this particular lens. A set of step-up rings and some 46mm filters might have been a smarter choice.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
