Korean level test – A way to gauge your language skills

Koreabridge - Fri, 2022-07-01 09:14

Have you taken a Korean level test before? If you haven’t tested your knowledge of Korean in a while, maybe it’s high time you took a level test to best understand how far into your learning journey you actually are.

Oftentimes, if you want to study Korean courses with a structured program – be that an online program like ours or at a language school in Korea – you need to complete a level test first. It may sound like a dull idea, but more than anything else, it is helpful to you. So actually you should be quite excited about the chance of getting to take one!

What is a Korean level test?

As the name entails, a level test gauges your skills in a particular language, in this case, Korean. Each level test may not be identical, but typically each of them tests your understanding of the language’s grammar and the diversity of your vocabulary, each question getting progressively difficult. The format is often multiple-choice questions. There is usually also a section that tests your reading comprehension skills.

In some cases, such as in TOPIK, there will also be sections for listening comprehension and writing abilities. And if you want to sign up for courses in a Korean language school, you often will have an interview that will measure your ability to converse in Korean.

Though this can sound overwhelming and nerve-wracking, it is quite a useful test to take. The worst things you’d want to do, especially if you are paying big money for the course, is to land in a class that’s just a repetition of everything you already know or to end up taking a course at a level too high for your skills.

A level test may be useful to take even if you’re primarily studying on your own. With its help, you can gain a proper understanding of the exact point from where to continue your learning journey, especially if you have been on a break from studying Korean.

Tips on taking a Korean Level Test

Now that you have a better understanding of what level tests are, let’s go over some quick tips you can employ to prepare for one. Technically the same techniques can apply to any type of language exam, but it’s good to refresh your mind on provenly successful tactics.

1) Give equal amounts of time for practicing each skill

Instead of simply scrolling through vocabulary lists, also do some conversation and listening practices. Perhaps create a cohesive timetable that has dedicated sections for each area you might get tested on.

Of course, focus on rehashing what you’ve already studied before, rather than trying to learn copious amounts of new things before a level test.

2) Make the language a part of your everyday life

This shouldn’t be a tough one to do if it’s a tactic you are employing with your language studies in general already. It’s an excellent way to complete your listening and reading comprehension practices, for example, and one of the most fun ways to prep up your language skills.

3) Utilize flashcards

To best memorize the vocabulary learned thus far prior to taking a level test, create stacks of flashcards that will be easy to take a look at during any random moment of the day, such as during a commute.

While it won’t serve you well to learn much new vocabulary prior to this test, it would also suck to get placed on a lower level just because you happened to forget a couple of odd words here and there.

4) Recheck your grasp of grammar

Do go over all of the grammar you’ve studied so far in your language journey and deeply reflect on whether there are still crucial grammar concepts you lack understanding.

In some cases, a simple revision will do and carry you over a language test. But sometimes, you may even come to realize your understanding of some specific grammar patterns is lacking enough that a lower placement may be better for you after all.

What comes next after taking a Korean level test?

If you already know your test results, the next step is to start learning Korean again. A method that is proven to be effective is our 90 Day Korean Membership Program.

With our Inner Circle program, you can learn Korean online in a fun and effective way from the complete beginning of your language journey until you are well into your intermediate-level learning.

What’s in the Inner Circle program?

Starting from Module 1 until Module 4, you get to move at your own pace utilizing all the materials available to you. It’s up to you whether you’d like to receive coaching and homework checks from us, too. The lessons are easy and memorable, and you also get to utilize audio files for pronunciation practice and join conversation classes over Zoom.

Overall, we currently have 4 modules consisting of 3-month courses. By the end of them, you’ll know not only the basics of Korean but how to navigate everyday life conversations like a native speaker. If you go for VIP membership, you’ll also get additional pronunciation practices that’ll truly perfect your Korean pronunciation skills.

Can I still join the membership without taking a Korean level test?

If you haven’t taken any level test prior to signing up for the membership, that’s totally fine! This membership gives you full access to the program so you can skip the lessons that you are already familiar with. You can easily navigate through the modules until you find the lessons that fit your level.

Now that you know what to expect in taking a level test, you will be more prepared in taking one. This way, you’ll get more accurate results! If you’ve tried a level test before, let us know about your experience by leaving a comment below.

Jusaam Hermitage – 주사암 (Gyeongju)

Koreabridge - Wed, 2022-06-29 23:29
Madang-bawi on Mt. Obongsan at Jusaam Hermitage in Gyeongju. Hermitage History

The little known Jusaam Hermitage is located on Mt. Obongsan (632.8 m) in western Gyeongju, Gyeongsangbuk-do. Jusaam Hermitage is a branch temple of the famed Bulguksa Temple, and it was purportedly founded by Uisang-daesa (625-702 A.D.) during the reign of King Munmu of Silla (r. 661-681 A.D.).

As for how the hermitage got its name, it’s related to a myth that’s told in the “Shinjeungdonggukyeoji Seungram.” There’s another myth concerning Jusaam Hermitage and why it’s located where it is. While constructing the Busanseong Fortress in 663 A.D., which is Korean Historic Site #25, Uisang-daesa predicted that if the hermitage was placed inside the fortress, the Silla Dynasty would never fall. And while Silla did eventually fall, it took hundreds of years to actually fall. Very little is known about Jusaam Hermitage after the Silla Dynasty (57 B.C. – 935 A.D.), so it’s assumed that the hermitage was rebuilt some time during the late Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).

Hermitage Layout

Jusaam Hermitage is located up a side-winding mountain road that eventually leads to the hermitage. The road is precarious in parts, until you eventually arrive at the end of the road where Jusaam Hermitage is located.

Between two large boulders, you’ll make your way into the hermitage courtyard. In the fall, this part of the hermitage is especially beautiful. Past the hermitage’s administration office, you’ll find a row of hermitage shrine halls. The first is the main hall, which is called the “Keun beop-dang – 큰법당” at Jusaam Hermitage. The entire interior of the main hall is lined with miniature statues of Gwanseeum-bosal (The Bodhisattva of Compassion). And resting on the main altar are five smaller sized statues. Sitting in the centre of the five statues is an image of Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha), who is joined on either side by Jijang-bosal (The Bodhisattva of the Afterlife) and Gwanseeum-bosal. And hanging on the far left wall is a highly detailed Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural).

Next to the Keun beop-dang Hall is the newly constructed Nahan-jeon Hall. Housed inside this temple shrine hall is a triad of statues resting on the main altar. Sitting in the centre is a rather squat, golden statue dedicated to Seokgamoni-bul (The Historical Buddha). This triad is then joined on either side by sixteen wooden statues dedicated to the Nahan (The Historical Disciples of the Buddha). And rounding out the interior of the Nahan-jeon Hall is another Shinjung Taenghwa (Guardian Mural) on the far left wall.

Out in front of the Nahan-jeon Hall is a beautifully placed Jong-ru Pavilion that commands a scenic view of the mountains off in the distance and the rolling valley folds below. Just to the rear of the Jong-ru Pavilion, and up a set of side-winding stars, is the hermitage’s Samseong-gak Hall. Housed inside this shaman shrine hall is an older collection of murals dedicated to Sanshin (The Mountain Spirit), Chilseong (The Seven Stars), and Dokseong (The Lonely Saint), as well as a bonus image dedicated to Yongwang (The Dragon King). Also housed inside the Samseong-gak Hall, rather uniquely, is an image of the monk Ichadon (501-527 A.D.).

Down the set of stairs to the left of the bell pavilion, and to the right of the monks’ dorms, is a beautiful, rocky ledge that looks out over the rolling mountains from six hundred metres up. The name of the rocky cliff is Madang-bawi, and it was the location for the popular Korean TV drama about the famed Queen Seondeok of Silla (r. 632-647 A.D.).

How To Get There

From the Gyeongju Intercity Bus Terminal, you’ll need to board Bus #704 that heads towards Ahwa. You’ll need to take this bus for 18 stops and get off at the Ahwa Intercity Bus Terminal. From here, you’ll then need to take a taxi the rest of the way to Jusaam Hermitage. The ride will take about 30 minutes, and it’ll cost you around 15,000 won (one way).

Overall Rating: 7/10

The main highlight to this hermitage is its location. It’s especially beautiful during fall foliage, when the valley and the mountains are painted in fall colours. Additionally, you can enjoy the beautiful shaman murals housed inside the Samseong-gak Hall, as well as the interior of the Keun beop-dang Hall. While one of the trickier hermitages or temples to get to in Gyeongju, a beautiful view awaits you if you can get there.

The parting of Mt. Obongsan that gains you entry into Jusaam Hermitage. The Keun beop-dang Hall at Jusaam Hermitage. The Nahan-jeon Hall at the hermitage. And a look inside the Nahan-jeon Hall. The scenic view from the Samseong-gak Hall. And a look down above the Jong-ru Pavilion from the Samseong-gak Hall. The set of shaman murals housed inside the Samseong-gak Hall. From left to right: Sanshin (Mountain Spirit), Chilseong (The Seven Stars), and Dokseong (The Lonely Saint). A mural dedicated to Ichadon (502-527 A.D.) inside the Samseong-gak Hall.

Korean Tutors – Finding a Teacher for Online Hangeul Lessons

Koreabridge - Wed, 2022-06-29 00:44

You might have come across this article in search of a Korean tutor.

Are you someone who has been studying Korean for some time now and are still hoping to enhance your studying effectiveness? Are you someone who’s only just started and would love some additional support in your language learning journey?

Are you simply curious about starting Korean classes because you love K-pop, Korean drama, and movies? Perhaps you’re looking to be best prepared for an upcoming trip to South Korea? Whatever is your reasoning, finding the best Korean tutors around could be the key to making the best of learning Korean for you.

Below we’ve offered some tips on how and where to find Korean tutors best fitting for you. It’s totally up to you whether you prefer Korean lessons over Skype or Zoom, or if you fancy taking a different type of an online Korean lesson or simply finding Korean tutors online.

How can Korean tutors help with language learning?

With the help of a good Korean tutor, you can learn Korean well beyond the essential basics – which we’re sure is something you’d like to do.

By learning Korean, you’ll not only be able to better sing along to your favorite K-pop tunes, you’ll be able to understand the lyrics, too! And while there are numerous ways to learn Korean, one method you definitely should look into and try out is to get yourself a Korean tutor.

Things to consider before getting Korean tutors

Before you settle on any Korean teacher, you need to be clear with yourself on what you are after. Also, you need to make sure they operate in a time zone that fits you and perhaps even try out some lessons before you decide the tutor in question is worth your time.

If you are already determined to connect with a tutor, you can go through some detailed tips below on how you can find the best Korean teachers and tutors for yourself.

What are your Korean Language Goals?

Before you do anything else, make sure you know what your personalized Korean goals are. That is the key that opens all the doors! If you’re yet to figure it out, now’s the time for it.

Knowing what you are learning Korean for is how you stay motivated on your language learning journey, after all. Here are some common goals that Korean language learners have:

  • A language lover wanting to learn a new language for fun
  • You plan to live in Korea for work or studies
  • You plan to travel around Korea and communicate well with the locals
  • You are interested in all things related to Korean culture and thus would want to gain intimate knowledge of its language as well
  • You’re married to a Korean person and you want to learn some Korean for them

Essentially, it doesn’t matter what your Korean language goal is, as each person has their own. However, you do need to have it specified for yourself so that you can not only stay motivated but also plan your upcoming studies accordingly.

By having a specific goal you are trying to reach, it becomes so much easier to achieve a desired level of Korean, too.

Find Korean Teachers online that work for you

Besides having clear goals set up, for you and your Korean tutor to work together effectively, you need to choose a tutor that will work for you. As in, they seem to offer the type of studying environment where you believe you can effectively learn a language in.

You do not need to limit your requirements to any one thing, you can have a checklist of multiple points that any Korean tutor needs to check off before you will sign up for their services.

Their usage of language learning terms

Some important requirements to take into consideration is especially whether they use language and terms you think you can understand. If you cannot understand the way you are being taught, then it’s honestly going to be a waste of your time. Not everyone learns things the same way, and that’s why there are also many different kinds of Korean tutors and online lessons out there for you to choose from.

Additionally, simply put, not every single Korean class out there is of acceptable quality. Thus, you need to be careful when picking the lesson you intend to sign up with.

The tutor’s personality

Another requirement you may want to include, especially when looking for a Korean tutor (more so than when searching for general Korean lessons) is the type of personality they seem to possess. For the most efficient learning, you will want to have a tutor with whom your personality matches well.

Again, as we all have unique personalities, the same Korean tutor will not be the best fit for all of us. Therefore, you need to make your decision based on your unique learning method and personality. Of course, even then you can limit your search to a pool of the highest-rated Korean tutors.

Do a trial lesson 

If it’s at all possible, do a trial lesson before you fully commit to any Korean tutor. You wouldn’t want your hard-earned money to go to waste, and a trial lesson is a great way to experience firsthand if the tutor and their lesson structure match your style of learning.

Many Korean tutors do like to offer trial lessons for new potential clients, so don’t be shy about accepting such an offer. They may not be entirely free of charge every time, but they are typically offered at a reduced rate in comparison to a full commitment.

Trial lessons are beneficial for the Korean tutors themselves, too. It offers them a chance to test out how their current style of classes is received and can provide them feedback on how to improve their teaching methods.

But most of all, it is a chance for you to know if you’re connecting with a suitable tutor and get a feel of the type of learning experience.

Find Korean tutors that are focused on speaking Korean and real-life dialogue

Now, when it comes to getting yourself a tutor online, most of the time you wouldn’t want them to simply teach you the same things you could learn in any online classes. Instead, you’ll want them to take a deeper or at least a differentiated approach.

More specifically, you’d likely get the most out of a tutor or a private teacher if you got one that especially focused on speaking exercises. Becoming a natural speaker of Korean isn’t easy, and yet it’s also not something that many classes can properly teach you. However, by doing Korean lessons with a tutor you can get more practice in it.

After all, at the end of the day, you will want to learn how to actually communicate in Korean, at least to some extent. And if you are only studying written words or spoken sentences that aren’t actually used in daily communication, how will you be able to do so?

Typically there is some sort of an introduction to the contents of the classes and tutoring offered. You can follow this introduction to get some insight into what you can expect. And, of course, you can also reach out and ask for more details. Also, with the most flexible Korean tutors, you can build the curriculum around your specific desires.

Choose a tutor that matches the qualities of a good Korean tutor

Besides having your own set of requirements for what you’re looking for in a Korean tutor, you should also check that they meet the requirements of a good teacher in general. What are those qualities they should be matching, then?

The big plus of a private tutor is that the classes will be tailormade specifically for you. That means, rather than in general classes that are made for the masses, your tutor is creating the class precisely for you.

However, not every tutor can necessarily do this so well. That’s why you need to find a tutor that has a specific set of qualities that a good tutor would have. This way you’ll know that the classes have been designed so that they align with your goals, learning styles, and personality.

What is a good Korean tutor like?

1. For starters, it is most important that your tutor is patient and adaptable.

A tutor may have numerous different clients, each with their own strengths, weaknesses, learning styles, and learning speeds. And the tutor needs to be able to handle each of their clients with care and efficiency, taking each different client as an individual, rather than try to use the same exact methods on each one.

2. Hand in hand with that goes the requirement for a tutor to be flexible.

As was already alluded to above, they may need to alter their teaching styles somewhat based on each student’s needs. These needs can be directly related to studying or they may also be more emotional-based. When speaking about teaching styles and flexibility, this includes being open and adjustable to possible timetable changes.

3. Of course, you can expect a good tutor to be emotionally intelligent as well as a good communicator.

If there’s something happening in your life that’s affecting your studies, they may be able to suss it out and adjust your lesson of the day accordingly. And with good communication, it is easier for them to explain the Korean lessons to you in ways that you find understandable. That is definitely a must quality for a tutor you hire to have.

4. Finally, you may want your tutor to also be self-disciplined.

This means you’ll want your tutor to show up on time, and make good on deadlines and other promises. Sometimes life happens to Korean tutors, too.

But if they aren’t punctual and are constantly forgetting whichever extra notes they may have promised you, you’re probably not getting the best out of the class. Your tutor may even come across as mighty unprofessional with behavior like this.

Consider your schedule

In addition to making sure your Korean teacher meets certain qualities, also make sure that you yourself are a right fit for the particular class offered.

Your Time Zone

If teaching can only be offered at a specific time, which in your time zone means bedtime, it may not be the best fit for you. Instead, choose a tutor that is available sometime around your free time.

Your Schedule

Also, examine your own flexibility and possible schedule restrictions. These are important to be clear on ahead of time as they affect largely which tutor you can start learning with. If you have a lot of free time and flexibility, it’s easier to hire any tutor.

But if you have a pretty busy schedule, you need to make sure you are meeting with a tutor that you can always fit into that schedule. Unfortunately, with Korean tutors, it’s not possible to enroll in a class that can be taken by yourself any time of day. It’s a live interaction, and you need to consider that when searching for potential Korean teachers.

Where to find Korean tutors?

Now that you know the how, of course, you also need to know the where! You actually don’t have to do much more than Google “Korean tutors” and some results will pop up for online options available.

By adding your location, you may also be able to discover Korean tutors near you in case you’d like to do face-to-face Korean lessons. Social media can also be of great help in this situation and you may even want to ask your Korean friends for tutoring help or assistance in finding a great tutor.

Additionally, especially online message boards related to learning Korean may be an efficient tool to use when searching for private teachers. You can utilize them offline as well, especially if you are currently in school or a university student.

90 Day Korean’s Membership Program

By signing up for our membership program, you can rest assured you are getting your money’s worth, which may not be the case with many other online Korean teaching sites.

Through this online language learning platform, you not only gain access to our weekly Korean lessons and other teaching content, but you will also have full access to our experienced coaches. This can also be accessed through your desktop or mobile device so it’ll be easy to squeeze some lessons in between your schedule.

The pricing of the entire program is similar to what some other sites may charge for tutoring only, so your money is being used efficiently by joining our inner circle for weekly online lessons and tutoring.

Our language coaches are not only highly qualified to tutor you, but they can also provide you with professionally structured guidance. This should help you greatly in achieving whatever your language learning goals are. These coaches can help you go over homework, practice pronunciation, and more.

By learning through our membership program, the money you will put in for your studies will be similar to the price more qualified Korean tutors charge. However, for that same amount of money, you will not only get structured and efficient tutoring but actual lessons as well.

Or you can also look at it the other way: you pay around the same amount you would for Korean classes with other sites, but in addition to the weekly lessons, you get supportive tutoring as well. Really sounds like you’d be getting your money’s worth with the membership program!

How much does Korean tutoring usually cost?

Many other sites, especially those of verified quality, charge $30-$40 per hour for Korean tutoring. With such a high price, you are guaranteed to be tutored by a teacher who actually knows how to teach Korean.

Therefore, you will likely have a good and efficient experience with the tutoring itself. However, that may be a steep price to pay, especially if you wish to do tutoring for more than a few sessions.

Alternatively, it may also be possible to find Korean tutors charging only $5-$10 per hour. And often enough they may even be native Korean speakers, which is of course a perk.

However, just because they are native Korean speakers of the language doesn’t automatically guarantee that they are skilled teachers or adaptable to your learning style and needs. In other words, tutoring is an excellent case where your money may be better spent paying a little more than what’s being offered the cheapest.

What to look for in an online Korean class?

Finally, before we let you go to find Korean tutors perfect for you, let’s also briefly go over what to look for in an online Korean class in general. There are three things you will want the class to possess:

1) It fits your personal learning style

As we mentioned above, each of us has a personal learning style and not all of us learn the same way.

It explains, for example, why some people may do great in school classes and exams, while some others may struggle, despite the fact they’re both equally intelligent. Similarly, not any and every Korean class will teach you Korean in a way that is most efficient and useful to you.

If you are not yet sure, now is the best time to figure out what is the style in which you learn most efficiently. Are you more of a visual learner? Do you learn better through hearing? Have you found the most efficient way for you to learn is by directly doing things? Or perhaps you digest new information best by reading and writing?

Whichever of these descriptions fits you the best, that is the style of a class you want to be chasing after.

2) It teaches the specific concepts that align with your goals

In the first section, we already went through the part where we stopped to think about what your Korean language learning goal was. Besides just knowing it when searching for a tutor, it also has a lot of weight with what type of Korean class you will end up choosing.

For example, if you simply want to learn some basics of Korean for fun, you probably wouldn’t enroll in a class in a Korean language school where they teach Korean 4 hours a day. However, if you are intending to enroll in a university in Korea, that is absolutely the type of a class you will want to take.

Thus, prior to signing up with any class, do read the structure summaries and reviews to get a feel of how the class will be taught, what will be taught in it, and how intense you can expect it to be.

You’ll want to be challenged, but you also won’t want to waste time studying things that will be of no use to you. Even if you are simply in it for fun, you may not want to take on a TOPIK preparation class, for example.

3) It matches your experience and knowledge

Finally, you absolutely want to choose a Korean class that is at the right level for you in terms of prior teaching experience and knowledge. You wouldn’t want to simply rehash things you already know, but you also won’t get much out of the class if it is above your current Korean level.

You can discover a better understanding of what the appropriate level of Korean class would be for you by doing a Korean language level test. With the information gained from it, you can search for a class matching that.

A level test can also be applicable when signing up for our program so that you will not have to start from scratch. By taking the level test, you will also give an ample amount of information to your tutor regarding your current knowledge of Korean. With this, you can better structure your schedule and curriculum with Korean tutors.


With that information, you should be quite ready to find Korean tutors online or offline that are perfect for your needs and goals! By equipping Korean tutors in your learning program, you can make the most out of your Korean studies.

Whether you want to learn faster or more intensively, with the help of a private Korean teacher it becomes so much easier. While it may cost you more than getting a language book from the store, you’ll learn numerous things a book could never teach you.

And if you haven’t yet, now is the time to check out our membership program for your Korean lesson needs!

K&F Concept Square Filter System Pro Review

Koreabridge - Tue, 2022-06-28 13:15

It’s been awhile since I have written anything about gear and that is simply because I don’t buy a lot of camera gear. I use what I have and typically only buy what I need. I don’t really lust after the latest and greatest gear at all.

That being said, I did need to upgrade my filter set recently. If you follow me on any of my social channels, then you know that I love seascapes and long exposures. So I needed to upgrade the cheap filter that I got off of amazon for something a little bit better.

Now, if you have followed me recently then you also know that the pandemic hit me hard and after a number of years, I am still struggling. SO that means that I am not really looking at buying the best of the best when it comes to camera equipment and other goodies.

The Filters

However, I did splurge a bit and purchase these filters for the sake of having some sort of Christmas/Birthday gift for myself. I must admit that I was really impressed and will most likely buy more filters for this system in the future.

The set that I went with was the set with the CPL and the 10-stop ND square filter. The reason that I made this choice was that I felt that having the CPL along with the 10-stop ND filter was a better choice especially since the holder is specifically built for the CPL.

The set costs around $150 but if you look around, you can find some pretty sweet coupon codes to save yourself some cash. I think that I managed to find a few offers around Christmas time that saved me a decent chunk of change. This is another thing that I really liked about K&F products and that is that they don’t shy away from offering a lot of discounts. Granted you get what you pay for and I have seen some comments about the build quality on their tripods.

However, the build quality of this particular filter system seems amazing. The metal has a brushed finish and everything smoothly slides into place as it should. I also like the quick release lock that they have made of the holder. It is simple but extremely effective.

Ease of Use

Two key features to this system are the tabbed house around the square filter and the locking mechanism that locks the filter stack to the lens bracket. These two features make a world of difference when getting everything set up.

The tabbed bracket ( can be purchased separately as well for around $17 that will fit your existing square filters) is a great little feature. Basically, it just keeps your fingers off the filter itself. If you have ever tried to handle a square filter in the dark or at any time of the day then you will appreciate this feature even more.

The locking mechanism or some may call it a “quick release” is another handy feature allowing you to easily remove everything all at once. I have used this feature a lot when I want to quickly re compose and get my focus again. I find it much easier to do that to slide out the ND filter and then carefully slide it back in when you are done.

Image Quality

design, ease of use and build quality are meaningless if the images are tinted and blurry. This is where a lot of the price comes into play when you are looking at expensive filters. The cheap plastic ones simply don’t cut it. Others may leave a purple tint or some weird blobs across the frame.

Thankfully, I have yet to come across any issues here. I was really worried about the colour tint and I have yet to notice anything. The images come out extremely sharp and detailed. This is something that really makes me glad that I picked these up.

Combined with right exposure calculations, you can get some really amazing shots from this set up. This is also what I noticed with these filters is that compared to my old screw on cheap ND filter, these actually allow me to use a proper ND time to get a good exposure. This means that the filter is actually 10-stops and not “somewhere in the ballpark” or just a dark piece of glass.

The Bottomline

The big question here is should you buy them? My answer is yes. All things considered, this is a good product for a decent price. I have yet to find any faults in the design or any flaws with the build quality. I do wish that they would have included a larger pouch or something to keep all the pieces together but that is just a minor thing.

I did pick up a small pouch from Daiso to keep everything together, so that is not really an issue anymore. I will also say that the case for the filter is amazing with the pull-tab to once again make sure you keep your fingers off that nice piece of glass.

To sum things up, if you are looking to get into long exposure photography and don’t want to drop big money on a filter set then this is what you need to look into. These are well made and great quality filters for a moderate price.
