Nicely designed, A bit Big

Nicely designed product that protects the filters well-just seem a bit big and the size smaller seems a bit small

Filter Hive

Great storage for all of the filters I have. Rounds and 4x6 filters. I love that the insert pulls out and fits in one of my many other Think Tank bags.

Great -- but wastes too much space on circular filters

I like it. But I always think I'd like three more spaces for my flat filters. I often don't specifically plan whether I'll need hard or soft edge filters, so it's nice to have a choice of each, plus one or two rgnd, and at least one ND. So, yeah. The hive holds a few filter and hangs nicely on my tripod, but t is neither fish nor fowl and just comes up a little short on each side of the bargain. I'm going to just use a polarizer and shoot hand held, or I'm going to use my flat filters. And I never use multiple circular filters. It's either a polarizer or, I guess an ND could be used on some systems, so having room for just two is enough. When I DO use a circular filter with my flat filters I know what I'm going to do and have no problem pulling it out of the storage (the mini) that I have specifically for those. I cannot see needing a selection of half a dozen extras right at the tripod with me. Also, think about it. If I wanted to bring two extra filters instead of a flat one just in case I changed my mind in the field I could shove those side by side in any slot in the hive. But I can't put my rectangular filters in the holes for circular as they're divided side by side. So give up four of those circular holes and let me bring two more of my 100mm gnds instead and this would be a five star item. It's built as well as everything else here. There is nothing to fault with the quality. And I'm sure it serves someone well. It serves me well, I use it ton. But I just totally miss having a few more slots pretty much every time I go out in uncertain light.Which is the best light for landscape -- the worst weather makes the best skies so you have to be ready for unpredictable and changing light.


Polar pro 4 X 6

The Polarpro 4 x 6 filters with metal frame and Exceeding tab don’t fit in completely.
