    Default keeping filters

    Hi,

    May i know how you chaps keep ur CPL or GNDs? i'm looking at ways where i can better organise and access to my filters. Right now, my GND is kept in a wallet n leaving the CPL on my lens. I figure that if i keep the CPL and replace wif a UV, its very troublesome to repack into its container.

    Do you keep all the filters into 1 carrier? like filter wallet or something like that?

    coz i misplaced my UV and i figured, should i be a klutz, its cheaper for me sacrifice the CPL than the lens.

    This is the reason why i enquire abt how all of you keep ur various CPLs should you ever bring 2-3 lens out for shoot?

    I use this and keep it on my belt. When I'm using shorts without belt, I hook it on my bag's side.


    Tamrac's MX5388 Filter Belt Pack

    If not wrong, bought it for $26 @ K-13. Keep all my filters in here, even my square ones.

    HTH.


    PS: Kinda weird to have your CPL on at all times. Sometimes, you can shoot 'naked'.

    tt brings me to this question.

    For those of you who use filters like UV, do u leave one UV filter on each n every lens that you own?

    Same here. Got mine from OP. Kept it strap to side of my bag for easy access. The squarish plastic cokin filter holders fit just nicely into the compartments. And each holder can fit 2 or 3 filters, so you can arrange one for GND and another for ND or say, different compartments to differentiate 2 or 3 stop filters and so on. Very convenient.
