URTH Filter Kits + Discount Code

We’ve been using URTH Filters (formerly Gobe Filters) for quite a while now and absolutely love their quality, price, and contribution to the environment through tree planting in some of the most deforested regions of the world.

In addition to their range of circular screw-in filters, they have released a 75mm & 100mm Square Filter Holdersquare filters, effects filters as well as the Arkose & Norite modular backpack camera bags and Core & Mantle camera straps.

URTH also produces some very practical circular filter kits which are particularly useful for photographers of all levels. The majority of these kits are Plus+ quality levels (see further down for an explanation of the quality levels). At the time of writing, they do not offer any Square Filter Kits but the Square Filter Holder and Square Filters can be bought individually.

In this post, we will highlight all the different filter kits available and what the filters are best used for.

Just a couple of things to keep in mind before purchasing the filter kits –

    • If the filter kit already includes a UV filter and you own several lenses then you will need to purchase extra UV filters in addition to the filter kit. Although it is a good idea to use a step-up ring for speciality filters such as C-PL (circular polarizer) filters, or ND (neutral density) filters, we suggest you purchase a UV filter for each lens you own.
    • It may not be practical to purchase a filter kit for every lens thread you have. If you own several lenses with different threads then we suggest you purchase a cheap step-up adapter ring to fit your largest thread size. This way you will be able to use the larger filter on all your lenses. For example, if your largest lens thread size is 77mm then purchase the 77mm filter kit and a step-up adapter ring if your other lens has 72mm thread.
    • When using circular screw-in filters try not to stack them in front of the lens on wide-angle lenses. For example, if attaching a C-PL (circular polarizer) filter first remove any other circular screw-in filter attached to the lens. If unavoidable, check to see if the stacked filters are causing significant vignetting in the corners. Most of the URTH filters are slim so you may be OK.

Quality Levels

There are currently 8 different URTH filter kits available. Unlike the discontinued Gobe range which had 3 quality levels of filters – 1 Peak, 2 Peak, and 3 Peak, the URTH range is categorised as URTH or URTH Plus+. Both offer great quality at different degrees with the URTH Plus+ being the highest quality. Choose the range according to your budget.

URTH – made from premium Japanese AGC optical glass that is coated with an 8-layer nano-coating for better sharpness, added protection, and easier cleaning. The ultra-slim rim avoids vignetting and the durable magnalium is guaranteed for life. The filters are double-threaded for stacking filters (although we don’t recommend stacking circular filters) or using screw-mount lens caps. The packaging for these is the familiar beige/brown colour.

URTH Plus+ – made from premium German SCHOTT B270 glass and coated with a 20-layer nano-coating for better sharpness, added protection, and easier cleaning. The UV Plus+ filters have 30 layers of nano-coating. They have an ultra-slim rim to avoid vignetting and durability that’s guaranteed for life. The filters are double-threaded for stacking filters (although we don’t recommend stacking circular filters) or for storing in the screw-mount lens caps. The packaging for these is grey.

All filter kits also include a Microfibre Cleaning Cloth and screw-mount Lens Filter Metal Caps (see image above) that connect to both ends of the filters making it a secure and compact way to carry all your URTH filters. Best thing since sliced bread in our opinion laughing

Normally, to obtain starbursts, you would need to shoot at small apertures such as f/11-f/16 (depending on the lens) and the number of points on the star would be determined by the number of blades of your lens aperture. Using these filters allows you to shoot at larger apertures while still attaining 4, 6, or 8 points on your starbursts.

  • 4-star filter produces 4 points on strong, close sources of light.
  • 6-star filter produces 6 points on strong, close sources of light.
  • 8-star filter produces 8 points on strong, close sources of light.
