View Full Version : Filter storage

So i was curious to know if there was some sort of storage for filters?
I only have 1 right now so i keep it in the Hoya hard case thing. But i am about to pick up a up a UV and Polarizer for my 28-135. So i could image carrying 3+ filters, and maybe more down the road would take up alot of space.
I tired searching, I found a "Filter wallet". But just wanted to know what people were using.

I've picked up a couple 4-filter Tiffen pouches on the forums for cheap. They have worked well so far, I use one for my CPL's and another for all my ND's. All of my filters are 77mm, and just fit.. I don't imagine anything larger would fit well in the pouch.

I'm using Adorama's filter wallets. Stopped using Tiffen's since the filters wore through the mesh panels; the Adorama panels are plastic-clad as well.

Like Jon Smith above, 99% of my filters are 77mm, which makes things easier. I don't normally use a UV, so I'll just carry one along if I bring a single body. If two bodies, I'll carry a second UV. Because of the common size, I only need a single CPL. I have two ND's, also 77mm, and they're usually along as well. I keep each filter in its own B+W plastic case and just toss what I need into the bag. Plus, the B+W case offers a bit more protection than that of a soft-sided wallet. This seems to work well enough without having to carry another wallet or pouch (at least for me).
