Digital Camera World Verdict

There are a couple of niggles. The tripod threads in the grip aren’t quite deep enough, and there’s a knack to learn in fitting the filter bayonets, but the fact is that right now there are no other products of the quality of the PolarPro LiteChaser and its filters for serious smartphone content creators.
