Open www.ebay.com and search for yourself. Why should others search for you???

Please note that for the original LCW fader, you are already faced with a reduced ND operating range before problems set in. At 12mm, you can only use it up to 3 stops ( ND8 ) before cross banding sets in. At 18mm you can use it a little more up to ND32. Also this kind of ND filters are much thicker in profile and will cause vignetting in many uwa lenses. So you have to evaluate if this is actually useful for you.

More info here: http://www.ephotozine.com/article/light-craft-workshop-fader-nd-mk-ii-filter-filter-review-14321

This is already true for the expensive original faders from LCW and Singhray. If you use the cheap china copies, expect to run into more problems. I've tried one of the "better" china versions, and they are junk.

You can also try the effect out to see if you like it, if you have two CPLs or one CPL and a linear PL. just stack them and turn. These fader ND filters are essentially made the same way.

Hi
@ Thank you very much Daredevil123 for such nice information.

@ Rashkae- I have not told you to search about ND filters on ebay, I know how to search, and if you do not have time, why are you wasting your time and replying to my Thread???
This Forum is to help photography Lovers not to discourage as you are doing by saying to search on google.
Thanks

Rashkae is right. you should search for yourself instead of asking others to do your work for you.

at work, do you do your own work or hire a maid to do your reports?

it's a simple search on google or yahoo for the information you need. and you did ask openly for someone to send you the link.

just my two cents. because i don't believe in spoon-feeding.

Hi Kie1309
My friend Kie, this forum Clubsnap is to help and give correct informations to it's members not to say that you search on google, any body can search on google, then why this forum was formed and why this forum is very much famous amongst amateur and Pro photographers, Clubsnap is to give correct informations to it's members through Senior/ Junior members.
therefore I do not agree with Rashkae and Kie.

Thanks & Regards
Alok

how the way question being asked, will get what kind of response.

your initial question was interpreted as "Feed Me!" by our dear friends here. :bsmilie:

if you rephrase the question as...
"if anyone bought the Fader ND filter recently with a good price, appreciate you could share with me the information.."

think most people will see it differently. :)

If you don't mind something of a lower quality, you might wanna try Tianya ND Fader artworkfoto at midlink plaza. Price range betw. $50 to $75 depending on size.
A word of warning, do not mount it on UWA lens, vignetting issue is quite profound.

It's kei. Not kie. By the way yes, to a certain extent we can show the way. But not if it's directly asking for the answer without much thought. We are here to guide, not an answer page. Also proper phrasing of your question so it doesn't seem rude will also help ;)
