Who are K&F Concept?

K&F Concept (short for Kent and Faith) are a one-stop refined photography solution provider. Founded in 2011, they specialise in design, research and marketing of photographic and video equipment ranging from camera tripods, lens filters, camera bags, surveillance camera and other must have accessories for your photographic needs.

 

Packaging

The packaging came plastic wrapped and the each individual lens came in a little plastic sleeve but overall I was impressed with the minimal use of plastic.

What's in the pouch?


Inside the pouch which contains layered partitions to protect each filter, you will find an:

  • Adapter Ring - Which can be installed in literally seconds.

  • MCUV filter - Ultra Violet filter.

  • CPL filter- Polarisering filter.

  • ND1000 filter - 10 Step Neutral Density filter.

All of these filters can be stacked upon each other if you should desire so.

The lens are made of German imported glass material with 16 layers of coating with high definition, waterproof, scratch resistant, anti-reflection functions. The edge of each filter has a CNC bump with a non-slip design which makes it easier to install and remove the filters.

 

Adapter Ring

The adapter ring is the only part of the filter that needs to be screwed onto the front of your lens. K&F claim it can be installed within 6 seconds and I can confirm, installation was extremely quick and easy. I didn't time myself but I was very impressed with the overall set-up time.

Once you have the adapter ring on your chosen lens, you can move onto the other filters.

MCUV Filter

By placing an ultra violet filter on your camera, your lens is protected from drops and scratches. If you drop your camera, the durable glass will take the hit. It also protects the lens from scratches caused by dirt. A UV filter is a much cheaper and sensible option that replacing the entire front section of your lens. I haven't used one before but I will be in the future as lens are far too expensive to break.


The other use of the UV filter is to reduce ultraviolet rays to restore the most true colours. See the photos below. Some people argue that image quality is reduced by adding a separate layer of glass onto your lens but from what I know from previous purchases of ND filters, you get what you pay for in terms of quality. With the K&F UV Filter, you won't encounter any image quality losses.

As you can see, no image quality loss whatsoever and slightly more saturated colours with the MCUV filter.

 

CPL Filter

A CPL filter also known as a polariser is one of my all time favourite lens accessories but what does it do? A polariser cuts down the reflections caused by sunlight when taking photos of landscapes with water as well as adding a little bit more contrast to your shots.

After testing out this filter this week, it's safe to say that this filter will probably live on my camera. I love what the filter did to the sky and the water.

With the CPL filter, the blues in the sky and water are more saturated as well as the greens.


 

ND1000 Filter

What is a ND filter? Well a ND (neutral density) filter is a filter that is put in front of a lens to reduce the amount of light making its way into a camera in measured amounts. Those amounted are usually measured in "stops". This particular ND1000 is a 10 stop filter which means it only allows 1/1000th of the ambient light to reach the sensor of the camera. The slower shutter speed can be used to be record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, providing that silky smooth water that many photographers love to capture.


I haven't had many successful shots with an ND filer in the past as I haven't owned a decent filter until now. I immediately got great results with this ND filter as seen below. I wasn't able to achieve great results during blue hour so I would recommend using this filter during sunrise, sunset or daytime.

The ND1000 filter slows down the shutter speed causing the water to appear extremely flat and smooth.

 

Conclusion

If you are in the market for a kit that provides you with all your needs to take your photography to the next level, K&F Concept have really nailed it. Gone are the times of spending ages switching between different screw on lens.
