Tiffen Camera Filter Set

As most photographer and enthusiast know, filters are great way to get better picture quality before post-editing. Since I really did not know what kind of filter to get, I decided to get a filter kit from one of the few well-known brands. After much debate, I went with the Tiffen Photo Essentials 77mm Lens Filter Kit, which I bought from Best Buy since I had a gift card to Best Buy that I couldn't find what to use it for. This kit came with the basic UV filter, circular polarizer and a 812 warming lens filter. It also came with a four filter pouch. To be honest, I don't even know what the 812 really means... -_-

Any how, my current lens have a 58mm filter size but bought the 77mm since I feel like the biggest lens I will get will be one with a 77mm filter size. In order to accommodate the size differences, I had to buy these nifty little accessory called a step-up ring. A step-up ring is basically a metal ring with two different thread size so you can attach a bigger filter to your small lens. I bought me a Fotodiox 58mm-77mm step-up ring. This will allow me to attach the 77mm filter to my lens that have a 58mm filter size.

Here are some pictures of the filter kit and the step-up ring attachment:

 There are many other brand of step-up rings out there. I went with Fotodiox because it was the cheapest. For some reason this one had no writing on it like the 52mm-77mm one that I also bought, so I took a white pen and marked it.
