    Default so many filters

    [QUOTE=Flyingpig]Then for the ND..when will it be useful when taking photos? Also the polorizer too.. Not familar with all this filters...is there any website where they explain all kinds of filter?

    there are so many diff. filters. UV and SKYLIGHT is the most common.
    some gives you stronger colours to yr pics.
    some to shoot through glass n water.
    some gives u a darken sky....so many more....

    u can go to a book shop n look up on filters for more details.
    Take both its legs down first, then cuts its tail, next is shoot between its eyes:devil:

    Wow, that is really easy to understand. I was trying to read up on very detail and technical article on this. Thanks to your layman term explanation, now i know the different

    By the way, I saw a catalogue from Hoya explaining about all filters. Maybe u can go down to a camera shop and ask for it.. Should be free of charge...

    Yo bro Nick. I will be there next week the week after. But going for work though. May not have time to jalan jalan. It would be nice to meet up and have coffee and go visit MBK to survey their camera stuff.

    Ok. I'll be staying either at the Oakwood Apartment or the Marriott Spa. I prefer the Marriot as I can take the hotel's boat to Takshin's pier and then the train right to MBK. Ok we'll see if we can meet. If not then have a nice trip to the US.
