Something I want to bid on in Ebay but cant get an Idea of what they are worth, anyone have any Idea????


<<<<<<<<You are bidding on a set of filters made by Quantaray and P.R.O.
All filters came in their original cases and are in excellent condition.
These filters were amongst a camera outfit I bought and are surplus to requirements.
The filters are as follows ;
  • +1 close up [/*]
  • +2 close up [/*]
  • +3 Close up [/*]
  • +10 close up ( for those extreme macro shots ) [/*]
  • 80A ( Blue ) colour correction [/*]
  • F-DL ( Pinkish ) colour correction.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>[/*]

Quantaray is the store brand at Ritz camera. You can check their retail prices on their site here:
http://www.ritzcamera.com

I've used their filters before & they are normally very good. If I were buying used, I would probably bid no more than 1/2 of their retail cost.

i agree with kalypso...don't bid more than half the price of them new

i also wanted to point out...color correction filters aren't necessary for digital...

because of white balance...

but, depending on the price, it might be worth it for the close up filters!

I obtained a set of 52mm Hoya HMC multicoated macro lenses, +1, +2, +4, with a case, on eBay for $5.00 plus $5.00 shipping. On the other hand, +10 multi-element macro lenses seem to be going for around $50 on eBay

I don't see why not. A +10 close up filter or diopter, just changes where the near focus point is.

The color filters are for changing the color balance of film. In a digital camera, you can select daylight, tungsten, fluorescent, etc color balance electronically in the camera. In a film camera, a given roll of film has a single fixed color balance. If you want to shoot it in different lighting conditions, and have the colors come out correctly, you have to use an appropriate color correction filter, or change to a different roll of film.
