      Don't Forget To Add The Lens Filters: 75% of customers get the L-Series lens filters because they add so much to the final video. They are much better than the cheap ones online like the Silver ones and even Polar Pro filters. The difference can be seen in the crispness of the video image while also greatly maintaining smooth video using the ND (neutral density) filtration. With generic filters this is a very difficult balance to achieve in cinema film but these filters use German SCHOTT glass and harness 16 green coatings of anti reflective material similar to what Carl Zeiss coat their lens with. The national brand Polar Pro does NOT have any of this but they do spend a lot of your money on market. You will be amazed at how sharp and natural the lens flares will look with our L-Series lens filters. 95% of commercial guys buy these so we love to see how happy they make people.
