This filter was either returned by a customer of I opened up the wrapping to take a look at the filter (such as when I do a quality check on new stock) so it's now considered an open box item. All of the open box filters are in as-new condition, at worst there may be a little bit of scuffing on the thread where a customer has tried it out before sending it back, but that would be purely aesthetic and you can treat this filter as being new. You can get this filter at a great price and it's also eligible for the multi-buy offer.

77mm screw-in filter.
Get a step up ring if you have a different sized filter-thread on your lens.
Rotatable when fitted. The glass design is symmetrical so the rotation is of limited use to photographers, but is a great feature for videographers.
Glass protrudes beyond the front ring of the filter, and it has no front screw thread. It is not possible to stack in front of this filter, but you can stack behind it.
Supplied in a padded box for safe delivery, also useful for storage of the filter.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to a filter like this. The photos you'll capture will be unique, and that's because you'll use it in your own way. That said, personally, I recommend using this at wider apertures (f2.8 and below) and usually with a typical portrait focal length (35mm-70mm), especially when you're starting out so you can get used to working with an unusual filter like this, and then branch out when you're comfortable to more experimental looks with wide-angle lenses and narrow apertures.
