This is a vintage 55mm Soft Cross lens filter from Kenko. The filter is in excellent condition with no blemishes on the glass. The metal rim is also in excellent condition. The effects ring turns freely and it is clean.
A Cross Screen filter adds a dramatic four, six or eight-pointed flare to light sources giving a soft-focus effect. They are great for photographing highly reflective surfaces such as water, glass or metal. Bright night city-scenes, festive lighting and sunlight on water are also well suited for these filters. The best results are achieved with long focal length lenses, open aperture and with the filter very close to the camera lens.
This Kenko 55mm SOFT CROSS filter will be sent well packed and promptly. My postage charges are very fair and I do not make money on shipping.
I am new to Etsy after having been a seller on eBay (and before that Yahoo Auctions) for many years with a 100% rating of well over 2000 sales. I specialise in cameras, camera lenses and filters and other camera gear, but I will also add other vintage items over time too. Thank you for looking :-)
