KASE filter kits - the MUST HAVE addition to your photography kit
After a few years as a landscape photographer and experience using 3 previous brands of filters, I was a little skeptical that a new filter brand could impress me enough to make me want to switch from my current filter set up.
BUT when KASE Filters asked if I would be interested in working with them I went in with an open mind and, agreed to purchase a set of KASE's K8 100mm filter kit AND their BRAND new magnetic circular kit to see if they were as good as all the hype I'd seen online. One thing I should mention is that in the past I have sometimes been provided with free product to review, but this time I actually had to invest in purchasing the kit myself so with KASE I'm saying it because I paid for the product and I actually believe in it!
So what was the verdict? I have been really impressed on a number of fronts, and I'm confident in saying they are a MUST-HAVE addition to your landscape photography kit to take your photography to the next level.
Here's the low down:
KASE Wolverine Series K8 100mm Entry Level Kit - $689 NZD
The entry level kit shown here comes with:
The K100 slim holder | 86mm magnetic circular polariser | 3-stop (0.9) soft graduated neutral density filter (GND) | 6-stop (ND64) neutral density filter | 77-86mm and 82-86mm filter rings | 67-82 and 72-82 step up rings | A soft pouch bag to carry up to 10 filters
I went and tested all the components of the Kase K8 100mm kit out in the field so you can see just how beautifully it all works together. Take a look at the video below:
KASE Magnetic Circular Filter Kit (BRAND NEW PRODUCT) $430-$500 NZD
In addition to the K8 kit, I was really intrigued to try out the brand new magnetic circular kit that KASE has just released.
This kit is unique with its stackable magnetic filters - you screw the UV filter onto your lens and then you can stack the CPL and ND filters - they just snap on into place since they're magnetic. The whole kit is really slim and so easy to take on and off in a jiffy - which makes it the perfect accessory when you're in a hurry to switch between filters or in a tough physical location where you're balanced precariously and you don't want to be fiddling around with attaching a holder and sliding filters into place.
