Kase Armour Magnetic Filter System Review

by Gerard Blacklock


I have been using the Kase K9 filter system for a few years now which has been an excellent system with high quality filters, you can read my initial thoughts on this system here. During 2021 the Kase Armour kit was released and in early 2022 I decided to upgrade to this filter system and give it a go. I have been using the Armour kit for over 4 months now and these are my thoughts on the system. All the sample images are taken from the Kase system using a variety of the Kase filters, there are also some product shots, these are taken recently so forgive the dings, dust and scratches on them 🙂 and there is also a short video (located in the summary and also here) showing how the system works, sometimes video is worth a thousand words.

If you want to skip the gaff and get to the bullet point summary of the pros and cons click here .

The Kase Magnetic Armour filter system is an evolved unique lens filter system that takes a different approach in the way filters are affixed to the camera lens. Filter systems have developed over the years however the concept of how the filters are attached and used has been pretty much stagnant.

I probably should go thru my images a bit more regularly – in a few short months this will be a 101.

Not every day you can say you have been on the planet for 100 years more than some one else in your family

So another photo sharing site sends me a email detailing a 'Security issue' and i need to change my password, could not remember it anyway since i never used it (site)- but thats beside the point here..

So apparently "a un-authorised party gained access to our systems and acquired 'partial' user data"… blah blah..
lets break that down, a band of merry crackers got a whole bunch of useful info 🙂
but thats OK, they only got your hashed password, as identified in this email as bold which is apparently pretty well impossible to break…. further bolding to indicate that other data such as CC details was not affected..

kinda downplaying it all a bit there… but wait there's more.. what can you do? "We recommend you change your password on any other website or app on which you use a password that is the same as or similar to your password for your 500px account." wtf i thought you said my hashed password was nearly impossible to break? do i really have to change my generic password across all platforms now 🙁

I'm tired of sweetened press releases, sugar coating comments, vague useless feel good statements….sometimes you just need someone to tell shit how it really is…
