    ND Grads and Grads. They are popular because its pure neutral.

    To create an orange band in the horizon.

    Cheapest place I to know is at robertwhite.co.uk. If you get the polyester filters, be very careful with it because it scratches easily. Get the wide angle adaptor if you're planning to use it with your 16mm on full frame.

    Yeh. I plan to get ND set(0.3, 0.6, 0.9 with soft edge) or just 0.6 and 0.9.
    How do you think about sky set? is it useful?

    Works like any color filter. It's useful if you want to get rich sky tones in-camera and don't want to mess around in photoshop.

    I got the ND set last time, but I was careless and scratched them quite badly. Upgraded to the pro-glass ones since.

    You might want to consider the neutral resin ND grads too, they are really really good.

    You got the Lee ND set and scratched them, then upgraded up to the pro-glass ones.
    The Lee set is made of resin, which glass ones did you upgrade to?

    edit:ah, I searched up and realised that Lee make "proglass" ones... oops! sorry about my... un-knowledge heh

    You are probably referring to the ND GRAD set, those are of resin. Mine was the polyester ND set.

    There are only 2 Lee Proglass ND filters which I know of - 0.6 and 0.9, i got the former.

    thanks, ibs.
    I checked their catalog and notice that there is PUSH ON FILTER HOLDER, do you know how to use it? do not need adapter ring?

    Get the WA one and it works fine. With LEE, the CPL will be the first filter the light hits if used in combination as opposed to CPL being the last filter (nearest to the lens).
