Does anyone know where can I get a 10-stop Hitech square ND filter? I've searched most shops, TK, John, SLR, Cathay, orient but they don't sell it. Also, are they able to fit cokin P holders?

Why not check out Lee Big Stopper? TK stock them but I think you need a Lee holder. Not sure if it fits the P holder

Lee filters are expensive right? No budget.. Or should i just stack 3, ND8/0.9 filters?

That would give you 9 stops, should work. Just take note that you are shooting through 3 pieces of filters so i'm not too sure of image quality

I was looking for the same thing before, called TK Foto, and they explained that they don't sell HiTech 10-stop ND because of color cast caused by resin filters. I ended buying B+W 110 ND filter. Anyway, I think investment in Lee filter is good, I agree they're expensive but I think I might be getting it soon :D

It's not hard. A lot of places stock them. You just need to get them before the stock runs out
Do you know if it will be cheaper if I get it in mass sales? If not then I gonna drop by the shops already.

Yup it would be a little cheaper but stock is lesser compared to the shops. I think there are 2 mass sellers selling them. One is Henessy, the other is visiontechnik I think

Hitech just very recently released a new line of filters called the PRO line of filters which are made of glass. Their new 10 stop filter is now made of glass and from online reviews, are comparable to LEE's big stopper. You might want to call TK and ask about these to see if they have reached our shores.

Correction: they are still made of acrylic, but a different grade from the old ones. They also come with the rubber padding around the filter to block out more stray light. Haven't had a go at it yet, been raining here. :cry:
