    Default ND filter for Samyang 8mm fisheye filter

    hello everyone
    i did my research but to no avail, thus decide to try my luck here although chances is slim

    i have this lens samyang 8mm fisheye


    but due to the front element, there is no way you can add on a ND filter, for long exposures
    Is there any 3rd party filter of something which is possible to try?

    cause i am thinking of doing those 120-180 seconds shoot, and i do not want to buy a tokina 11-16 or something like that yet

    PS: this is not like the those wide angles, this one has no screw threads.

    Any filter would need to be attached to a protruding shim. This would cause heavy vignetting in the image. Why not just rent a uwa lens?

    since this lens don't come with behind the lens filter drawer, you can try get Kodak Wratten Gelatine filter and cut in to size place behind the lens.

    Some dude made some filters using ND gel and insert them into the camera mount before he mount the Samyang 14mm.
    You can probably do it for your setup...

    Does the fotodiox filter holder for 14-24 work?

    No. You have to get the set specific for the particular lens. For the Samyang 14mm I remember a french company did make the filter holder. But not sure for the Samyang 8mm.

    Yes, just confirmed that French maker Lucroit makes a filter holder that fits Samyang 8mm. One holder will fit any of the big lenses like 14-24, Samyang 14.. but you have to buy different adapter rings for different lenses. Not very cheap and the filters are all custom size (165mm width) from Hitech.
