Depend on what you want. I will keep the Cir-PL and ND filters. Actually I was looking for one that is R72 so that I can try out IR photography. Hoya R72 is quite ex.

Cheers

You're right haven't try IR maybe should not sell the lot. Saw that Cokin's IR P Filter cost almost US$50 at Adorama.

Anywhere to get it cheaper?

OT a bit, how often you use the Cokin Filter System, for me it's a bit trouble-some to bring out lah, needs to put on the "vest" and me very pai-seh to put that vest on lah.

Why not get the Lowepro Sliplock Pouch or use those waist pouch to hold them?

This looks very much like the Lowepro Micro/Mini Trekker. I was looking at the Crumpler bags the other day, was keen to get a bag which could take a notebook.

Made mistake when I bought a Samsonite backpack for my notebook... and now have separate bags for camera and notebook, :hammer: why do I always do this??

After I bought this bag, I also realized that I should get a Crumpler one...not sure who else is interested in the Crumpler bag? May be we can confirm the quantity and organize for a MO? :dunno:

Crumpler one opens differently from lowepro one. More safe.

Cheers

Yeah... they open differently.

Was thinking of getting one of the "Barge" model. Maybe the smaller one, as long as can fit my 15" notebook that is fine.

Going back to the original thread, I think we veered off from the original thread... my apologies Kavana...

Saw your post on the Landscape Changi Broadwalk, liked #4, I think because of the distinguished split horizon makes it a good shot. Good one. :thumbsup:

Anyway sorry for the OT on your thread. :embrass:

I hear that the Cokin FIlters P007 is available at Cathay, 2 left. Want to try it?

But if you are using FZ20 and has the PA, maybe better buy the 62mm IR filter instead... using Cokin filters has gaps which stray light creeps in.

I am thinking of using Cokin so I can switch trying different lens... but also thinks that since IR looks good with WA should just get fixed IR filter for the WA lens only. Hmmm...

John Teoh, what you think? I know you have given some thoughts on these questions already, penny for your thoughts? :thumbsup:
