New ICE HD Circular Polarizing Filter Line by Desmond

ICE HD CPL 77mm
ICE is the brand name of a new series of quality filters distributed by Desmond Photographic Distribution, U.S.A.

ICE brand will cover a full range of CPL, MCUV and Variable ND filters from ∅39mm to ∅112mm


What actually caught my eye is that the HD CPL line boasts some very good characteristics like:
  • 16 layers of nano multi-coating.
  • Easy clean top coating.
  • Under an over coated.
  • Scratch resistance.
  • Oil and water repellant.
  • Black Almite frame.
  • Black rimmed glass to eliminate reflections
  • Double threaded that can accept lens caps or other filters.
All the above are usually characteristics of top line CPL filters, where especially the larger diameters usually cost above US$ 100.00. However, Desmond promises very affordable prices for the ICE brand.

A sample of the ∅77mm version of the HD CPL filter has arrived, so stay tuned for a detailed comparative review with the champion in the category and nonetheless expensive Marumi DHG Super Circular PLD and an equally priced Green.L dHD CPL. Let's see how it copes.

Availability:
ICE HD CPL Filters are available from Amazon.com
