Compatible with Nikon AF-P DX 18-55mm lens and Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS II STM Lens for APS-C cameras with an 18mm-85mm focal length range

  • 【Balanced Exposure with ND Filters】Neutral density filters reduce the amount of light entering the camera sensor by various degrees: ND2 by 1 stop, ND4 by 2 stops, and ND8 by 3 stops, to achieve balanced exposure across images under different light conditions. These ND filters also make long exposure shots possible by slowing shutter speed.
  • 【Light Control with CPL/UV/FLD Filter】Use the CPL filter to reduce unwanted reflections from water, foliage, glass windows, and other nonmetallic surfaces. Apply the UV filter to block ultraviolet rays and protect your lens. A FLD fluorescent filter is also included to eliminate fluorescent or "greenish" tones from photos for superior optical clarity. Two lens hoods effectively block strong sunlight
