From time to time, I notice that a fellow CR member is located in my city.  So I figured, why not see how many more there are?

If you wish, reply to this thread with the city that you reside in.  (And perhaps country if not in the U.S.)

For the record, I'm from the Dallas/Fort Worth area in (Arlington) in Texas.  U S A

Heck, who knows, maybe a small meetup would be in the works for some of us.   :D

Hi I don't see Japan.  I am from Japan
Cheers !!

« on: August 15, 2013, 12:44:47 PM »
ok. i am convinced to invest

lee filters are square??
do i need to buy a separate holder?
will this holder work with all lens sizes?

what are the options for me to buy - looking for brand names

i have:

- hoya
- lee filters
- Marumi - no good availability in UK

anything else to consider?

ALSO: what do i need? n2, n4... n400??
what should i start with?


Hi omar,

I suggest you start with reading this :http://www.redbubble.com/people/peterh111/journal/4421304-the-ultimate-guide-to-neutral-density-filters
I found it to be very useful to learn about nd filters and which to buy.

A brand I would highly recommend is B+W I have their 10 stop and 6 stop filter because I like the really long exposures(a few minutes long on a bright summers day ;) ).
That would be my go to for screw in filters.
If you also want to buy gradual nd's later, I think it is best to invest in a LEE set. But the waiting period for the 10 stop is easily a few months.

I hope this was useful to you.

That was an awesome article on ND filters.
