    for me, i'm not so much concerned whether it is a cheap or expensive ND filter. what i am concerned is the kind of color cast it gives on my pics. some ND filters give color cast that is difficult to correct.
    mine is the tianya one, ND16

    It says so on the label on the outside of the B+W box it was packaged in. Look for it. It says X1000.

    can we stack ND filters? lets say ND8 + ND8 then we get 6 stops

    Yes you can stack. But try not to stack too many. May cause more problems than you wish for.

    I do that if I have to. I know that there are others who prefer not to. Generally not advisable but so far it doesn't bother me.

    tried it, if stack filters and face direct to the sun will get flare. So not advisable.

    Hi all, im a noob to ND filter, jus wondering do u guys use a uv filter to protect the lens (during light metering) and cover it up with a ND filter to get the effects that u wan? meaning to say if i have a 10-22mm lens with uv filter and i add a ND filter to get the effects.

    The UV filter does nothing for light metering. It's purely for protection. In general I will NOT stack filters unless absolutely necessary.

    Stacking filters will cause vignetting, especially on a UWA.

    If it's an ND8 (3 stops) and there is still reasonable light, I find that the camera is able to meter with decent accuracy even with the filter on.

    But if using something like ND400 (abt 9 stops), you will have to meter without the ND filter, then (in M mode) reduce the shutter speed appropriately and mount the filter before taking a shot.
    The UV filter makes no difference to the metering, but with a UWA like 10-22, possible chance of vignetting.
    You can try stacking 2 filters and photographing a plain surface (eg wall at home) and see how it goes.
