The F:X Pro round filter set in use with Max Montella

Das F:X Pro Rundfilter-Set im Einsatz mit Max Montella

Max Montella, the travel photographer of the Italian photo and travel blog “passamdo dal mondo” had the opportunity our F:X Pro round filter set of 3 to test in practice. In this new article, Montella tells you what you can expect from the filter set and how the round filters fared in the photographer's test.

Montella was in Venice and photographed the view of the Grand Canal and the famous arched bridge Ponte Vecchio in Florence. These tourist hotspots are particularly popular in filter photography because, for example, particularly soft water can be ideally depicted.

The first impression of the round filter set

The set consists of three gray filters different strengths (ND8/ ND64/ ND1000), which are ideal for photographers who travel a lot and want to have a selection of different ND filters with them. The filter set comes in one sturdy cardboard cylinder, in which Montella also stores the filters during transport for travel. The F:X Pro round filter themselves are screwed together and contain one for the front and rear own metal cap. The caps ensure that the filters protected from shock or dust are.


The photographer emphasized that the clear labeling on the caps and the filter enable quick changes and readiness for use.


The impressions of the filters during the test

The main feature that Max Montella immediately noticed is that all three filters did not cause any chromatic aberration or strange changes in the final image. According to him, using the ND filters also makes sense in broad daylight. He even has it by the sea no problems with scattered light or had unwanted reflexes.

The high quality material, which the filter frame consists of and that precise thread allow for easy screwing onto the camera lens. According to Montella, this thread in no way interferes with attaching the lens hood or even with hooking the front cover. That too Gorilla Glass® impresses with its strong robustness! Every shot was flawless with no loss of quality or change in coloration.

Montella's conclusion

After extensive testing and collecting his impressions, Montella can only recommend the round filter set. For travel, they are screwed together in a practical form and take up little space in your backpack or bag. The low weight of the filters is also a big advantage for him when traveling with larger equipment. He only sees the filters as pluses if you want to respond individually and quickly to different lighting conditions.
