I really have to apologise for creating a thread to ask this. Im very new to filters and this issue had been bugging me for 4hrs (thats very long cos i dont like unexplained stuff)
just bought a ND8 filter. Looks very dark when you just look at it like that. But upon mounting to the camera, the outcome looks like theres no ND filter at all. How can that be? I am sure that theres some logic behind it.
And im sure that this is the way its supposed to be. Cos I tried shooting normally with and without filter, no difference. But as soon as I increase the exposure, (slow the shutter), I get distinct difference. One is overexpose the other just nice. That's the way its supposed to be and I love it. But I just dont get it how come when you shoot normally at 1/60 for example, thats no significant difference at all when the filter is soooo dark.
