Info on variable ND filters added. Also linked a video comparison of 6 popular variable-ND filters in the market.
Hi guys, some questions to ask you experts.
Going to Sri Lanka soon and I am using a basic Nikon D3200. I love taking mountain ranges, or landscape shots from the top of the mountain, sunsets or sunrises on mountains or the beaches etc The problem I always have is that the sky always become white because of the exposure to light. In order to reduce this, to get details of the mountains and whats on the ground and still get the details of the sky, am I right to say that ND would be enough or GND would be also necessary? And for CPL, its usually useful only for getting details for away background mountains etc? What would be the biggest difference especially in the details of the picture when using the 3 filters?
For waterfalls, I think ND is the preferred choice for most situations right? Sorry for noob questions, but just bought the D3200 and after watching the videos, still do not fully understand.
For water fall, depending on the conditions, u may need a ND filter to slow down shutter speeds enough to get the smooth water flow. Suggest u read up more on exposure triangle before buy nd filters.
This is awesome, thank you!
Just an idea - we could also a "Newbie Guide to Lens Mounts and Adapters" - would be incredible!
I have the lens foundation kit and am using the wa adapter 77mm.
I am thinking of getting an universal hood for the 17-40L. Will it cause vignetting?
Furthermore, i am also thinking if i shld get the 105mm polariser or 77mm polariser to use together with my Lee GND filters? Will it cause vignetting?
I tried googling but to no avail.
Thanks and appreciate if some can help
I have Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8, will Cokin P-series (85mm) causing vignetting on my lens?
Hoya Slim CPL + WA Adapter and b+w ND110 + WA Adapter will give you vignetting till ~18-19mm. Nowadays, I just handhold the GND infront of the filters I'm using... So far no vignetting..
There is a special adapter you can buy that will allow you to use a CPL infront of the the adapter. But you will have to sacrifice one slot of the holder (leave it empty). I saw the adapter at OP. Not sure if it will vignette or not, since it is based off the standard adapter, not wide angle adapter.
Another option is to use the special filter holder by PROGREY. You can find it at TK. Check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...6307011&type=3
will the filter exchangeable? I mean can I put 100mm lee filter to Hitech/Cokin/Progrey and vice versa? Do they have standard thickness?
Finally bought progrey and couple of hitech filter. Now, I'm looking for filter pouch. I saw lowepro S&F filter pouch 100 at TK photo, in fact that the only one that they have. The material used to house the filter feel quite rough, will it scratch the filter? Anyone using same pouch feel free to post your experience.
