Thread: DSLR users - Do you still use filters?

    I still use NC/UV filters for protecting the lens and a CP filter for my 50mm
    Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives.

    I doubt people can write such program. So, Cir-Polarizer is a good gear for photography/dSLR.

    uv filter, close up filter, nd filter, cpl filter, star filter, nd grads, orange grads, skylight grads, red filters and soft filter.

    the question is, would you want go through the trouble setting up for that shot? or would you rather just shoot and solve it through PP later? depends on which one you are more proficient in. PP to me eats my time, and i use film too, which is why the range of filters.

    I only use UV (for protection of front lens element) filter and C-PL

    But for some lens like my 50mm where the front lens element is too far in (i think this is what they call built-in hood??), no need for UV filters

    I use UV for protection.
    I also use CP.
    I have 3 closeups for those occasions I need to get close because I am too cheapo to buy macro lens (and I don't like macro photography anyway).
    That's it.

    B+W UV for protection. The one thing stopping me from a CP is the 2 stops of light loss, and possible vignetting.

    Circular polariser as mentioned by all here is a good thing to get.

    And the ND is also a good item for the bright daylight landscape shots. To reduce the amount of light to get less DOF or to get a longer exposure.

    Cp is like a ND 2 filter. It only reduces light by 1-2 stops.

    ND can have a density of up to 8.
