There are UV, CPL, GND, ND, color filters, etc.

Each have a specific purpose but do let us know what you are looking out of the usage of the filters.

Exactly, you should tell us what kind of filters you are looking for. Or are you planning to buy all of them?

You want to try minimalist filter, misty sea filter, air filter for make the sky dark filter?

heh... jking.

You need to understand filters and what filters care capable of what. I recommend you go read up before you start asking about where to buy this and that.

BTW, you also need to know how to use the filters. The filters do not promise automatic nice pictures when you put them on.

Hi all

yeah my question seems so bias.
I love landscape photography. Especially i love cloud texture and playing with long exposure. Since I am beginner, i tends to lowering shutter speed to achieve blur and starry light (at night) . But sometimes it ends up with overexposure. :(
Last time, my cousin borrowed me UWA lens (77 dia) and I bought CPL to give more detail on the cloud. It amazed me how the result are, but it seems like the ground under ( reduce 2/3 stop of exp).
Nah, my problem is my cousins took back the lens and my own lens is 67 mm dia. Cant be fitted in :cry:
I found in the internet there is filter system like lee that could be used in any lens dia. depends on the adaptor ring.
Could all of you share or give me some information/ links to read?
May be I need Neutral density or GND plus CPL filter?? Am I correct?
