I tested it for removing unwanted reflection and compared it to a B+W multicoated and a Hoya uncoated. I could not tell the difference between this AmazonBasics and the B+W. Visually, not much difference in the end result when compared to the Hoya. However, shutter speed was faster for the same end result, meaning the AmazonBasics transmitted more light which was the result of better coating. This is very good initial result for something that cost almost next to nothing for a multi-coated CPL. I am still testing it and will update with more results.
The pictures attached are comparison of 1) no CPL filter, 2) AmazonBasics CPL filter, 3) top brand name CPL filter. It is quite clear that the AmazonBasics CPL filter performed equally well as the brand name CPL filter.
I liked the packaging on the Amazon version - the case has indentations/rings to keep the filter from flopping around when in the bag. Between the Amazon and Altura, I would select the Amazon version.
To compare the filters I first customized the white balance of my Sony A6000 with a light panel, and then I placed all three filters on the light panel and took a picture. After I imported the attached image into Adobe Lightroom, I took three separate RGB readings for each filter and the panel. The top one in the picture is the AmazonBasics, the bottom left is the B+W, and the bottom right is the Sigma. The average values for each area are:
Panel: R 94.17 G 94.17 B 94.17
Amazon: R 78.33 G 78.87 B 77.37
B+W: R 68.87 G 69.60 B 71.73
Sigma: R 72.83 G 73.50 B 74.40
You can tell from these values that the B+W and the Sigma have more blue, and the AmazonBasics has a green tint. Also the AmazonBasics' light transmission is higher than the other two.
I reset my A6000 to auto white balance and took some pictures with the 10-18mm and all three filters. I set the aperture to f/8.0 and focal length to 18mm, and I rotated the filters until the longest exposure was achieved, meaning the sky was the darkest and the polarizing effect was maximized. For the same scene the shutter speed for the AmazonBasics was 1/60", and the other two filters used 1/50". When viewing the pictures on a calibrated monitor, the B+W and the Sigma images are almost identical and the blue skies look better. As expected the sky in the AmazonBasics image is not as good, and it's not easy to adjust it in Lightroom to match the other two, but if you don't compare them side by side you probably wouldn't know the difference. In terms of sharpness I can't see any difference.
The AmazonBasics has the same thickness as the B+W, so both cause vignetting at the 10mm end. Considering the B+W cost twice as much of the Sigma, I think the Sigma EX DG is the best value for me. If you are a casual shooter who only uses kit lenses and shoots JPEGs, the AmazonBasics is definitely a good value. If you are a more demanding photographer, you probably want a better filter to match your expensive gears.
I was amazed. These are some of the best filters I've used from any maker, without respect to price. I got two basic filters ( Circular Polarizer and a UV protector ) for less than the cost of other maker's polarizer alone. The polarizer has absolutely zero color tint...not yellow, not blue green...perfectly neutral. That is important!
Don't hesitate. Buy some of these before Amazon realizes they are selling them at too low a price point.
