Supertele + drop-in cpl
« on: September 12, 2013, 10:04:38 PM »
For those of you with big white primes and the drop-in cpl. Do you leave the filter installed 24/7 and dial it in/out as needed for every shot, or do you take it out and only insert it when the shot dictates it?

I take it out, and use it only when needed.  The CPL costs you light.  I didn't buy a 600mm f/4 to usually have a 600mm f/7.1.  ;)

Same here. I only use it in bright light, with water and snow.

I'm still waiting for mine, but a question here, when you pull it out and insert the clear filter, do you have any clever way, like a small pouch hanging on the strap to switch fast or something? When it's just to pull out, I can see myself changing it often in some situation where I have had to live with the lost light with the screw in filters.

You can use something like this on your belt (I am not intending to advertise this particular piece or shop, just I bought this a few months back and found the link easily)......

I have not been in the need of swapping the CPL in and out several times on the same shoot, so that has not been an issue for me. I carry it in the box it came in.

Thanks, I have one like that, mine folds and folds, I like it a lot, but I'll try to find something for my strap for just that one filter.
