i want to get a polarizing filter for my canon 550D...any suggestions? i really need advice, actually, very new to all this things.
thanks for the thread ive learn lotsa info from it
Hi, i need advise on the square filter. I'm looking at the Cokin P-series (84mm filter) and Z-series (100mm filter).
May I know which one is recommended for a DSLR camera?
Is it better to get a Z -series?
Depends on the focal length and the lenses you are going to use. Also depends on whether you are using full frame or APS-C sensor based DSLRs.Originally Posted by garyphoon
And if you are looking at 100mm filters, do also consider Lee filters and Hitech filters.
Of course Z and X series will cost more (probably ALOT more...) as compared to P series. If you are considering P series for filters and just "playing" around to see if you need filters, consider Tian Ya filters, cheap and reasonable quality considering the price. For the Tian Ya ones, just get what you need and not buy the bundle ones, the bundle comes with alot of filters you may not even be using even thou those colors sounds cool (e.g. Graduated Blue, Graduated Orange etc.).
Just want to ask if i can combined the uv and cpl filter together...
Thanks a lot in advance
Perhaps you find it troublesome to remove the UV filter, which you leave on the lens all the time?
The issue I can think of is vignetting caused by having 2 filters stacked on top of each other.
Funny thing is I have heard people having no problems even at 10mm when using the Sigma 10-20mm lens. This might be due to the construction of the lens.
Canon crop sensor shooters can even worry less, because of the crop factor that Canon adopts is 1.6x instead of the more popular 1.5x. That means Canon users have a little more leeway in vignetting, at the expense of angle of view, of course.
As for filter holder for 100mm, you can go with many options. Lee, Hitech, Cokin-Z-pro, and other China copies. All will work with 100mm filters from all brands except the specialized ones like CPL, or big stopper.
