    Just ordered a six pack set of Polar Pro Lens from Innovationuas.com

    Do these come with a small protective film on them? I have small hair scratches on ALL of them.

    I could only get one to show up in the picture but there is a bunch all over the lens, this normal?

    $150.00 you would think they would be perfect?

    Yes, mine did.

    I panicked when i first looked at all the squiggles until I realized no lens could be that bad and then I found the clear plastic film protectors.

    Are you sure?

    On the outside and inside? Or just outside?

    I am having trouble trying to get it off!

    My apoligy. I opened the six pack and the three pack again to make sure.

    I was incorrect, they have no covering, I was seeing the imperfections in the plastic tray holding them.

    All my PolarPro 6 pack ND lenses are scratch free and not protected with any film I could find.

    I had thought i had to remove a film prior to use but I didn't upon investigating.

    I have the Polar Pro 6-pack and none of the filters have scratches on them. I also have a set of the slide-on filters too. Same deal there. Contact Polar Pro and get a replacement.

    I looked at the polar pro inserts and figured they are a bit expensive for my budget so I grabbed a nd variable screw on filter for £15 from amazon, it performs almost as good as my £80 nd variable on my dslr. No distortion or impact on image quality and a quick turn to adjust the ND level. Im hoping to get some usable footage on Friday with it. Might post a clip up with and without it.

    Do you have the information on that filter. I want to get one and try it out.
