    Ya. 10 mm for mountains is asking for it.. Too much space with nothing to fill it up. Maybe in cliff and plateau still can.

    Thanks,

    Just you and Mr. Newbie, give me 2 totally different types of filters as I dont have a proper understanding yet of what each means.

    Actually it's the same, ND filter and GND soft filter.

    ND to have longer exposure time and GND to balance the light between the sky and the ground.

    I just realised yesterday that I bought tickets to Kumar's show for Friday and I'm returning to Singapore at 5pm on that day from level camp.

    It's gonna be a mad rush.

    It's very simple actually, I think we are talking about the same thing. Actually can introduce one more, since you are not using UWA - circular polarizer.

    ND filters extend exposure, idea is usually to smooth out water. Water at 30 seconds versus water at 1/500 seconds is very different, in the former motion is blurred and only immobile objects (like rocks) will remain sharp; in the latter, motion is captured, you will get wave texture.

    GND filters have a line across the filter where everything above is darkened. There are 3 types of GND filters - hard, soft and reverse. Hard filters have a hard/sharp transition between the darkened area; soft filters have soft... Hard filters are better for shots where the horizon is very clear, for example, salt flats where you have a clear cut off part where you want the exposure cut down. Soft filters are good for shots where you have reflections, or for things like cityscapes. Generally in Singapore, soft filters will be more useful. Reverse are for cases where you have the brightest part of the sky at the horizon, e.g. just after sunset. For reverse, above the "line" is the darkest and then it gets progressively lighter. You can google to see the difference.

    Hard versus soft


    Reverse more expensive, need to get at least Hi-tech, Singh Ray also have:


    On polarizers, this is a good read: http://www.cs.mtu.edu/~shene/DigiCam...polarizer.html

    CPL can also be used like a ND filter.

    Do note the inherent problem of uneven polarization with CPL use on UWA: http://www.earthboundlight.com/photo...arization.html
