This filter kit for professional models (180, 190, 195) was something that was originally packaged as the Polaroid #595 filter kit. Our kit, like the original includes an Orange B&W filter, UV filter, and lens hood.
We’ve included the highest quality professional filters from Hoya and B+W.
The lens hood is made of collapsible rubber, used for protection and most of all cutting down on lens flare and contrast killing stray light. We’ve noticed that under bright sun these camera tend to flare quite a bit. While at times this is a wanted effect, many times it is an unpleasant surprise when you peel your photos.
What’s with the lens thread sizes?
Polaroid chose to use a 45mm thread on these lenses. Unfortunately this size is very odd in the world of photo filters and accessories. To accommodate this thread size, we provide an adapter that will step up to a common 49mm size thread.
The filters screw onto the lens of your camera when coupled with the thread adapter. Use the filters alone or in combination, the included lens hood also helps to protect the fragile lens on your camera.
