Hi I'm a relative noob. Hoping to get a filter to let me take those pix of 'silky' waterfalls, and 'dreamy, smoky' water surfaces. I know ND will be the one that does the trick. However some websites and pp I've spoke to claims that CPL can duplicate the effect to a certain extent, while some say that's BS. May I seek some expert's opinions here pls? :-)
Anyone have personally used CPL for ND effects?
What are the stops reduction for CPL, if any?
Which brand/coating of CPL would be best for this?
Hoping to save some costs and just get a CPL for multi-puposes at the moment. Then maybe a dedicated ND filter with more stop reduction in the future. What do u guys think?
