    Re: A post to say hello and ask advice about ND filters.

    Thanks Hark. Fairly sure we have everything we need with the exception of the ND filters. I think we'll likely go for a 6 and 10 stop filter.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone else.

    If you have a circular polarizing filter, you can also slow down your shutter speed. The filter's box should list the filter factor (how much light is lost due to its darkness). Older CP filters tended to be darker than some of the newer ones. An older B+W that I used previously has a filter factor of 2.5 which translates to 1.3 stop less light getting through. So one can be used as an option if you want to slow your shutter speed slightly.

    Nice to have you here. Good luck with whatever you choose!

    I think you made the right choices in ND filters. That said, all ND filters are NOT created equal. I tried cheap and mid range ND filters and was very unhappy at the color cast. A strong blue or green, some times magenta, tint cast over the photo. I have read a few comments that this is easily fixed in Lightroom, I wasn't for me. I found it impossible to get to the true colors of the scene. Anyway, the point is, spend some money on pro grade filters. Read reviews with special attention to color casting and you'll be much happier with the results. Granted, this is just my experience. Good Luck on your trip!

    if you have water falls in the area where you live i would test the camera and lens you have to see if they would work for you without the nd filters.
