Like Kood, SRB adopts the 82mm P-Size fil­ter for­mat for a good bal­ance of porta­bil­ity and lens cov­er­age. There’s only a sin­gle fil­ter in the starter kit to get you go­ing, but it’s a ver­sa­tile ND4 soft grad that’s ideal for bal­anc­ing a bright land­scape ex­po­sure. Plus with ex­tra fil­ters start­ing at as lit­tle as £12.50/$20.77 a piece, ex­pand­ing the kit needn’t break the bank. SRB throws in a three-fil­ter holder, clean­ing cloth and stor­age wal­let for eight fil­ters. All you have to do is choose an adap­tor ring, with 49mm to 82mm thread sizes avail­able.

Con­sid­er­ing the bud­get price tag, we found the op­ti­cal qual­ity to be fairly good, with only a slight blue colour cast vis­i­ble at the dark­est point. Ul­ti­mately the Kood kit gives slightly more bang for your buck, but it’s a close call.
