filter storage
I have been looking for a filter wallet or case to carry all of my filters in. I ran across this filter stacker and wanted opinions on it..


Some people I have asked said that stacking the filters is not a safe way to store them so I just want to see what everyone thinks..

I'm not opposed to one of the wallets that hold about 6 filters (I have 5), but all of them that I have found have some negative reviews on them from consumers. I know you can't please everyone with any one thing, but I hate to buy it, not like it, and have to pay to return it. If anybody has some recommendations, I would really appreciate it..

Thanks in advance,Kim..

It depends on how you carry your gear day-to-day.Big bag, then a wallet will workCompact bag, sling, then perhaps a filter stack will work.

The wallet is more convenient, because odds are the filter you want is stacked in the middle Warm regards,DOF..

...polorizer and N.D. in a neoprene small case from OP-TECnever found the need for other filters...tho I only shoot color..

The stacking seems a pane and dirty (and requires filters with threads on both sides)...filter wallets take up alot of room. Good Luck..

Does the neoprene case leave an impression? I have been using a tamrac wallet and notice that it leaves an impression on the filters mimicking the mesh lining of the pockets. It comes off with cleaning, but if not noticed when taken out of the wallet, I get a weird border on images. Renders the wallet worthless, because who wants to start cleaning off the filters when you are ready to pop them on to a lens. I usually clean them before a shoot..

So what about the neoprene? Does it leave an impression?.

I've had a pair of filter caps for as long as I can remember. Very handy for carrying the filters that you don't often use but would like to have in the bottom of the bag just in case. (Nowadays that's not many of course, it was a lot more for film.) Not a great way to carry filters you expect to use regularly or need quickly...

I went out shooting pictures yesterday and used a couple of my filters and right now I have them in the Hoya case that my macro set came in. It was such a pain to get them out of that. I definitely need something easier that will fit in my camera case. I agree that I don't want to had to do major cleaning of the filters when I take them out of the case, a little dust is bad enough. Any more suggestions?KimKodak Z712ISFuji Finefix F700..

Filters used to come with a nice case. They were little clear Acrylic cases that unscrewed. You could see what was inside. The filters were protected. I looked and quickly found several by Hoya in my collection, but I think most manufacturers did something similar. I think I have also seen some that attached together in a stack?.

I recently had the same issue. I had 3 different filter boxes in my bag. They were in different pockets. I had to remember which pocket had the polarizer...which pocket had the ND...which pocket had the closeup lens. I went to my local friendly camera store (LFCS) and bought a LowePro filter wallet. It seems to work OK.

So far, I can't see any marks or smudges on the filters. It was about $15..

Hi...No impression than I can see...I use filters so rarely I clean them every time. The fish net impression thing sounds completely rude, someone should tell the genius...
