i see. btw, how often do your stack filters?
Just want to check with u guys, if 85mm filter with cokin P filter holder, will there be any vignette on nikon 12-24 and 10-24mm DX lenses? If there is, anyone knows @ what mm will the vignette gets clear off?
Thanks for the reply, doesn't that means one would need to spend more on filters because it can't stack?Originally Posted by daredevil123
What I meant is, if u need a 4 stop GND, you would need to acquire an additional single piece 4 stops GND filter instead of being able to stack ur existing 3 & 1 stop GND right?Originally Posted by daredevil123
I bought myself a starter filter kit to play around (e.g. Cokin P holder, Tianya 85mm ND & GND filters)
Basically I stacked the ND & GND onto a 18-200mm lens.
After a few sunset shots, I noticed that there's quite bad vignetting and flares on my photos.
Removing the UV filter/circular polarizer helped (to reduce the distance from filters to lens), but vignetting & flares still occur.
What can I do to prevent such vignetting & flares from occurring? (e.g. do not stack filters? Filter issue? wrong slot-in positioning etc?)
I would post a photo here to explain what I mean, but I'm not sure if this is the right thread to put it...
Thanks for your help.
I was just wondering something but I'm not sure whether is this the correct place to post..
Since those low-end "cheapo" MUV filters are no match with those like B+W or Hoya mid to high-end series (in terms of quality)..
Did it make any diff between those Multi-coated UV (like Green L or those for a few $$ on ebay) vs "cheap branded" Multi-coated UV (like Steinseizer)?
I have been using either Kenko or Steinseizer for my filters.
People often make comparison between Kenko/Steinseizer vs Hoya/B+W..
Anyone have experience between "cheapo" filters?
Sorry, but just curious..
I think that you try to use one only and see how it goes.
Oh, are you using a APS-C body of a FF body?
This also may be a factor, due to focal length issues.
I really recommend the Hoya HMC, it is cheap and good. A 77mm Hoya HMC UV will only cost you around $35-40.
For the shots, a Tamron 18-200mm Aspherical LD XR DiII 3.5-6.3 (62mm) on a Nikon D40x was used.
It was taken at 18mm, and even with a 1.5x crop factor, why do vignetting still occur?
Does anyone else have any advice? Thanks.
