ND filters
« on: January 25, 2015, 09:57:15 pm »
Just ordered some ND filters. I cant believe how cheap they are nowadays.
About 4 years ago I looked at the same thing in Jessops. They wanted 60 for the glass filters and another 15 for the plastic adaptor set.
I just ordered the lot including P&P for 11-69.  :)

While I was at it I got a 72mm variable one like Dave D, for a mere 8-45

Thanks for the heads up Dave

not a bad price all round chris, I went for cokin and wish I'd gone down the lee route, there is a slight colour cast sometimes with some filters, it's not too bad and easily remedied in photoshop if you're shooting raw etc, I went a bit mad about 20 years ago and for my film camera bought a cokin holder and a load of cheap colour effect filters (the usual tobacco grad, grey grad, blue grad etc etc. photoshop didn't exist) - couldn't work out the strange colour on a few pictures then read about it one day in a magazine, I scrapped all of the coloured filters.
I got one of the variable nd filters from srb a while ago and spoke with a guy from the manufacturers, there can be a slight problem with them at either end of their scale and he suggested testing it out and marking the maximum and minimum as you may see lines in your images.
There are three kinds of people in the world:-
those that can count...... and those that can't!!!!
