Cheap Filters

Don't do what I did recently and get tempted on one of the cheapo websites

I broke one of my own rules and bought some cheap filters when getting some replacement lenscaps and saw some effects that I've never seen before ...

CPL that sends your skies green not blue ?
ND4 grad that isn't neutral, but changes solour across the surface ?

I'll contact the vendor and see what they have to say in terms of "fit for the purpose intended" and if no luck then I'll name and shame

My Kit (OK I'm a hoarder...)
4/3 E500, E510, E30 + 35macro, 50macro, 7-14, 11-22, 14-45 (x2), 14-54, 40-150 (both types), 50-200, 70-300, 50-500,
m 4/3 EM1MkII + 60 macro, 12-100 Pro
FL20, FL36 x2 , FL50, cactus slaves etc.
The Boss (Mrs Shenstone) E620, EM10-II, 14-41Ez, 40-150R, 9 cap and whatever she can nick from me when she wants it
