    Default Filters help

    Hi guys. am looking into getting ND filters. but do not know what to get (besides a UV filter im currently using to protect my lens).

    So was thinking should i get a square filter set first to try out first and explore abit first before i invest in a proper ND filter?
    Also does the filter brand matter? if so which brand of ND filter is recommended?

    thanks in advance

    Not for indoors n low light shooting ya. Outdoor is good to use CPL filters. Hoya is pretty ok.

    Do you use umbrella all day and night? Or only when it rains? A filter is a tool, similar to umbrella. Use when needed, remove when not. Understand the functions of filters, read the filter guide as linked by catchlights.
