:lol: Well I did manage to play around with the eyedropper for the WB in RAW, not exactly where I want it, but I think it'll work until I give the white paper trick a try tomorrow

And I also found a step down ring in my old gear bag, so I can get it onto a wider angle kit lens, hopefully tomorrow will yield some solid results.

I just read 69 pages from the start of this thread and I was so blown away and now I'm so ready to try this out so I looked on eBay and found this

This should work right? I want to glue it to a 77mm spacer ring and tape off the rest of it to prevent any flaring from happening.

Should do, yes. It's a Shade 10 which should be about 10-stops.

Here's mine from yesterday, corrected then xpro-ed
Gonna get cracking on a different holder, tend to get hard-edged dark corners which are uncorrectable :(

Lovely. Great example for the use of the glass.

Thanks Anke :) Always provokes questions when I whip out the old browned envelope with Welding Glass emblazoned on it lol
I realise I've a bit more derring-do with the glass knowing I've got a couple of spares. Wouldn't say the same if I had pricey Lees!

Here's another, tritoned instead:

what can i use to glue the spacer ring to the glass? i dont think superglue is up for the job (unless someone can prove me wrong). i looked at some 2 part epoxy's on amazon and none of them can do both aluminum (which is what i assume the ring is made of) and glass.

I used clear silicone on mine. It will hold it just fine. Just use a small bead all the way around on the ring, and lay it on the glass. Let it set for the day. Take a razor blade or sharp knife and remove the excess on the inside. Clean the glass, and your ready to go. I still need to take a photo of mine to put on here. Been busy. I don't live in the most perfect place to test this out, but I'll wait for the right day, or wait till I can go somewhere that I can get a good photo.

Got my glass today, seems to be a small but long scratch on it. I hope it doesn't affect image quality. Just need the weekend to come along so I can do some shooting

^ if you have time and patience to wait for the glass to ship from the UK

don't forget to use the coffee filter white balance trick!

i think i'll take my filter out since it's been awhile since i've used it.
