Do I really need to buy a Lee Pro Glass
« on: March 04, 2013, 10:50:46 AM »
Hi folks,

I like landscape shooting mostly and particularly flowing water or waves.

I have a Hoya pro HD circular polariser and a MRC 110 10 stopper by B+W.
For the likes of smooth flowing waterfall shots which I know the 10 stopper works for and the circ polarisor.

Is there any advantage in getting say a Lee .75 100mm pro glass filter? (I have the lee 100mm system)

I know it gives me more choices to use at certain f stops for a given DOF or indeed to operate my lense at its sharpest aperture.

But will it (pro glass .75) outperform the circ polariser in sharpness?
Will it outperform the 10 stopper in colour rendition (im guessing a yes to this.)

What do people often find themselves using or indeed find sharper, more natural etc for flowing water shots?

By the way as a note I have already .3 .6 .9 in Hard and Soft graduations (100x150mm) but these are resin based and I prefer to keep these for horizon line type shots i.e. sunsets as I suspect they might hinder focus details if covering the entire scene comapred to glass or indeed filterless.

Any pointers much appreciated,
Thanks
Nick.
