Canon General / Re: Filters?
« on: September 03, 2012, 04:13:59 PM »
I have a question concerning filters

I have the Lee system

I have the 77mm size, plus an adapter for a couple smaller sizes

but I've got a 16-35 and its 82mm

I haven't been able to find an adapter for that lens

any ideas??

Would get the 82 mm wide angle adaptor to avoid vignetting, I bought mine two weeks ago from Conns Cameras in Ireland, they usually stock it.

Lee are considered top of the bunch, and their ND grads are made of resin not glass. Their Big Stopper 10 ND is glass though.

7D sounds like your best bet, a used 1DIV would be better if that works with your budget and you don't have a lot of EF-S lenses.

Get the Lee filters. Singh-Ray filters costs more and cokin filter are cheaper but not so good.

Cannot go wrong with Lee, I can vouch for their Big Stopper. B+W, Cokin and Singh Ray make slightly inferior but still reputable products.

The short answer would be yes. If you tailor your gear towards what you want to achieve, the results are infinitely worth it. Did a 10 stop ND improve my black & white photography? You bet it did. Did the TS-E help the architectural and landscape photography. Yes it did.

They tend to be quite overpriced but sturdy tripods.

Anyone in Europe want to buy mine? Still new but have no use for it.

Impressive, I love this camera. Although yesterday was trying some long exposure work and got quite disappointed with the noise that started appearing in the shadow areas...

Buy a lens for a purpose.  If you are not missing anything, hang onto your cash or upgrade to a 1D MK IV, its is much better and you can sell your MK III and add a little cash to do it.

+1 from me. You only buy glass with one purpose in mind before going for it.

The 85 mm would be an obvious choice if you want to move to portraits, although the 50 mm and the 70-200 already cover that as well. The 35 mm is quite a good walkabout lens for street photography.

First one really

Amazon has multiple, not very fine quality but better than nothing and they are cheap. Some also come with covers for the top LCD and the lower part below the main LCD where the file number is displayed.

Not strictly true, I bought the Big Stopper and a hard graduated set together with a holder and 82 mm wide angle adapter this week, I contacted Lee themselves and they pointed to their dealers in the EU, it was paid for on Monday, shipped on Tuesday and arrived on Thursday across the EU.

From which retailer did you get yours?

Conns Cameras in Ireland.

To me there is nothing better than getting the best RAW in camera on location. I calculate the f stop difference between highlight and foreground, apply the appropriate grad and I have the perfect file as the light was on location. No messing in front of a PC.
