Did you get the polyp labs filter?

Take a look at my side-by-side review of the PolypLab filter vs. the IceCap filter.  I decided to go with IceCap because the colors were much more accurate and the macro magnification was better.

Good to know.  I've been looking at both as well as dslr filters.  I'll go ice cap for phone.  Any experience with filters on dslr's?

I choose not to use filters on my DSLR.  Instead, I set the camera's white balance as far to the blue spectrum as possible and it really helps to compensate for the blue lights.  I have a Nikon D610 which can only go as high as 10,000 Kelvin on white balance, but it's enough to work well.  See some of my macro photos with the Nikon here:   http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/topic/45689-macro-photos/


What DSLR do you use?

I've been doing the same for photos with my D700 but video on my m50, gh5 and bmpcc all look off, even after heavy post editing.  I've noticed a lot of YouTubers mention using filters or gels but never which ones. 

Your photos are beautiful btw.  Your making me want to invest in a macro lens.

Here are a few more links to my macro photos for you:


And a macro video using the same Nikon D610:  http://www.pnwmas.org/forums/topic/44599-coral-macro-video/?do=findComment&comment=442134
