    Good product, well build and works like a charm on my 40D. Jon is a great guy to deal with as well.

    You can get Tian Ya at Orient Photo, Sim Lim, 6th floor. Filters are ok, they do the job. Check the quality, the QC is inconsistent and you can see sometimes differences between two filters of the same kind. Cokin is more consistent but also costs 3x more.

    tian ya filters are plasticky, you pay for what you get. If break just trash it and get another one.

    Tripod wise, people will recommend you to get manfrotto 190xprob, as for tripodhead, you gotta do some search imusing giottos one.

    For cokin style filter, resin material is much better than glass
