    Thanks! I think 30 seconds is good enough. Done with a 10 stop filter?

    Ok I hear from the sales person when I wanted to purchase the pro-stop.

    Mentioned that the resin dye seems to be uneven. After long exposure, you can see "lines" appearing across the scene. All these based on user feedback.

    Are you a pro-stop user also?

    I face that problem too. Initially I thought it was cause by light leaks.

    In addition to that, I find some black dots on my filter when shining a torch through it. Though they only appear on my pic when I'm using f16 and above.

    I only face problems of red patches and broken glass effects in my pictures if I place the Pro Stop nd in front of a GND. I don't get this once I reverse the order. Do not know why is it like this but I just made do with it.
    I hadn't face any lines issue at low aperture shots.

    Soon to be, sold my B+W ND110 not long ago. TK is selling the new version or the old one? I just placed my order to Teamworkphoto few days back.

    Did you try to close/ cover your viewfinder when you do long exposures? The light streaks might be coming from the viewfinder.

    they could be having the old stock, perhaps the new batch has no issue. im not a pro-stop user, just happen to get these info when i asked about the filter.

    btw guys, it seems that its possible to use the B+W ND110 (circular screw on type) with the lee foundation kit holder?

    does it mean that there are screw threads on the outside of the filter ring?

    B+W ND110 max filter size is 77mm, there are no 105mm available unfortunately.

    There is filter threads in front of the ND110 but I would not recommend getting the ND110 if you are serious in long exposure. Very difficult to use a screw-in filter as your AF system will not work behind the 10-stop filter. Screwing/ unscrewing the ND110 will definitely move your camera/ composition thus making it much more difficult to get the right composition. Worse still I tend to end up at risky places like beach and on a ledge... screwing a filter in front of the lens at such locations is risk too much to take. That is the reason why I sold my ND110 and went for square filters.

    do give us some feedback on your pro-stop when you get it. its cheaper (including shipping) than getting the big stopper locally?

    I have done a test here: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/revie...-pro-nd10.html

    Hope it'll be of some use to you.

    In my earlier post, I have experience some spots and light streak. However, they do not happen all the time. for the spots, they only appear at very small aperture i.e. f22. as for the light streaks, they only appear when I am shooting directly into sunlight or very bright light source.

    I believe it's more of a qc issue. My friend who have the same filter does not experience any problem.

    it is cheaper to get from overseas if you order more. I took this opportunity to jump into Lee system, ordered some GNDs, NDs, Reverse GNDs together with the pro-stop.

    thanks for the review appreciate your effort. well blue cast is easier to correct in Photoshop than the red cast from ND110.

    I'll say the warm hue from nd110 is rather mild and require minimal correction. Sometimes the warm Colour works pretty well for sunrise.

    not just warm hue, sometimes the IR leak eats into greeneries and it is difficult to remove these red cast on post processing. On ND110 I was "forced" to convert all long exposures to B&W.

    Let's see how it goes with the Pro-Stopper then

    On the other hand, the cool tone from Hitech Pro stop looks better for desolated ruins.
