I ordered the Hybrid ND/PL filters for iPhone 11 max pro on December 19, 2019 and still not arrived (today is January 9 of 2020). Not happy now. Tracking number of DHL is: GM295116755002088012. I hope you can fix this
Absolutely love the filters and look forward to purchasing the anamorphic lens when im sure it fits the iPhone 11 pro max. Thank you and keep up the good work. Stephen paterson Australia
I have had these filter 3 months and let me tell you they work amazing! I use the ND64/PL and ND32/PL filters regularly in the super Sunny and cloudy weather in New Mexico and these really help improve the sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity of photos. If you want to step up your photography level but these. The iPhone I’m using is an XR.
Great service and fast shipping
This review is for the clip-on hybrid ND/PL filters used with an iPhone 11 Pro (using the clip, not ******* on to Sandmarc's lenses). I was worried about light leaks when using clip on filters, so before purchasing this kit I contacted Sandmarc to ask what sort of case they recommend to eliminate light leaks, and after several days they wrote back to say that I should buy their lenses to avoid light leaks. I was frustrated with this answer, but I decided to purchase the filters anyway because there weren't any other high quality options that fit the iPhone 11 Pro at the time. The glass, metal, and plastic components seem to be high quality and perform well; however, there are two major problems with the clip-on system: First, light leaks through the back of the clip, causing very noticeable internal reflections in some lighting conditions, even when using a matte black phone case that matches the height of the camera bump. This is partly because the hole in the clip that goes around the phone lens is much too wide. I was able to mitigate this problem by covering the hole in the clip with black electrical tape and then cutting a hole in the tape only slightly larger than the lens, but that worsened the second problem: Because the filters are dark, you can't see through them, so it's very difficult to center the clip over the lens (which is crucial for avoiding asymmetric vignetting - it really sucks to get home and view your footage on your computer, only to find that it's unusable because there's a weird shadow-like effect over part of the picture). Simply looking at the picture on on phone's screen when you position the filter isn't a reliable way to get it right, because the slight vignette isn't always noticeable when you're outside, especially in conditions when you need an ND filter. There are three ways I've found to help center the clip over a lens, none of which is ideal. 1) You can unscrew the filter from the clip, center the clip over the desired lens, and then screw the filter back on while trying not to move the clip (this is a pain, and fairly time-consuming because the filter threads are very fine). 2) You can make permanent marks on your phone case indicating exactly where to place the clip so it's centered, but you have to do this for each lens, and then you have lots of weird marks on your phone case. 3) You can shine a strong light through the dark filter so you can see actually see the lens while you line up the clip (you have to carry a powerful flashlight or something similar - daylight doesn't work because the filters are so dark). The bottom line is that using these filters with the included clip is quite annoying, but once you get them in place and figure out a way to cut out the light leaks, they work. If weight matters to you, the advertised 18 gram weight is for each filter, not everything together, and the clip weighs about the same, and then the carrying case (which doesn't hold the clip) weighs about 33 grams. Oh, and when you open the box that these filters come in, the clip is hidden in a separate compartment. I read someone else's review saying his came without a clip, but I suspect he just didn't notice that he had to open the box at both ends to get everything out.
