Zomei Multi-Functional Filter Holder

May 25, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

 The Zomei Multi-Function Filter Holder is a 100x100 filter holder for photographers with a budget in mind. This filter holder runs about 20$ from Amazon and it can be found in multiple variations depending on the filter ring size you're looking for.  This product as with many, is a good example of; "getting what you pay for", sometimes there are exceptions where you'll find an amazing product at an equally amazing price but this isn't one of those. This filter holder is made of plastic with the exception of the mounting ring which is made out of aluminum. It has two filter slots with the addition of a circular slot on the front side of the mounting ring which allows the attachment of a circular filter between the lens and the square filters.

The main downfall of this filter holder is the amount of force that it takes to slide the filters into the slots, the plastic retainers apply far too much force making it hard to slide the filter in and out of the holder. Aside from this flaw, the holder does work but I'd definitely recommend not using this with expensive filters. I modified mine by placing cardboard spacers between the plastic bits that hold the filters. This helps but increases the chance of vignetting.

 

I'm not saying this filter holder is down right bad, it just isn't the best you are going to find. Aside from the issue with the excessive force needed to install filters, this holder will get the job done. I'd consider this product as a stepping stone, it'll work for now but you'll definitely want to upgrade when it becomes possible.
