The individual components of our filter kits are briefly explained
With our filter kits we offer you an entry into the world of Kase filters. By purchasing our sets, you secure a price advantage compared to buying the products individually and you can start photography immediately. With the Kase Wolverine Series Entry-Level Kit, the perfect entry-level set into the K100 (100x150 mm) rectangular filter world from Kase. The filter set consists of our proven K100 holder with a magnetic 90mm polarizing filter (circular), 2 adapter rings and step-down rings each, as well as a SLIM Wolverine 100x150 mm gray gradient filter and a SLIM Wolverine 100x150 mm ND filter. Excellent landscape shots and long exposures can already be realized with this. But we also offer the "Kase Wolverine Soft K100 Master Kit 100x100 mm ND with K9 filter holder" for experienced photographers, for example. The Kase Wolverine Master Set is the top set of the K100 (100x100 mm or 100x150 mm) rectangular filter from Kase. The kit consists of our proven K100 filter holder, a magnetic 90mm polarizing filter (circular), 2 adapter rings and step-down rings each, as well as three 100x150 mm gray gradient filters and two Wolverine ND filters. Due to the large number of GND and ND filters in this set, you are prepared for every lighting situation and motif.
The versatile polarizing filter
The first important type of filter that you should not do without is the so-called polarization filter, which is also known as a polarizing filter and CPL filter. Polarizing filters make it possible to remove unwanted reflections from various surfaces such as glass, grass, water and leaves. In the case of meadows and trees, this ensures a more contrasting and richer landscape, as can be seen in the image below. With glass a polarizing filter makes the reflections almost completely disappear.
The effect is not always the same and depends on different factors. For example, the CPL filter can be rotated on the lens to change the intensity of the effect. The effect itself comes about because light waves oscillate in a certain direction. This direction is also known as the direction of polarization of the light. A polarizing filter is coated in such a way that it only allows light of a certain polarization to pass through. As a result, it swallows around 2 apertures of light, but at the same time reduces unwanted reflections.
A must in photography, the gray filter
A gray filter is screwed or placed in front of the lens to reduce the light hitting the camera sensor. This principle can be compared to that of sunglasses for the human eye. The effect allows longer exposure times to be achieved and many interesting shots to be taken. A gray filter can be used to achieve different design effects, such as people disappearing from busy squares. As a rule of thumb, the darker the gray filter, the stronger the effect in the photograph. Some effects that can be realized with an ND filter are listed below:
- Architectural shots (make moving people disappear)
- Wipe effects (make waterfalls, rivers and waves look silky)
- Solid light trails (moving cars)
In what strength should one choose ND filters?
For this purpose, we have created a table that shows which ND filter should be used in which situation. Below is a list of which filter has which neutral density, increases the shutter speed and darkens by how many stops.
