Haida Slim Pro II MC Filter off eBay.

Here is one possible link (assuming you want a 10-stopper). They also have 3 stoppers.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Adorama is offering lots of deals on filters. See the listing at https://www.adorama.co​m ...Circular-Filter-Size_77mm (external link) for the 77mm ND's. Use the filter settings along the left edge to narrow down the choices. One of the better ones, the B + W 77mm 110 3.0 (1000X) ND Single Coating Filter is available at about 1/2 price or $70 (see https://www.adorama.co​m/bw77nd1xc.html (external link)) but there are plenty more at higher and lower prices.

I'll 2nd a Haida Pro. They're excellent, minimal color cast, great coatings, sharp. I sold all my Lee stuff and just use a single 10 stop Haida Pro these days.

Very best,

Has anybody given the ZOMEI 100mm x 100mm 10 stop ND filter a try? For one thing it's made with German Schott glass and not resin, which obviously means that if you drop it on a hard surface you've had it. But optically it could convince.

I just checked the links and both work fine from my Win7 laptop. Repeat of the 2nd link. Copy and paste into your browser and see if it works.

Is Haida at the moment. It got good reviews and the color is more neutral. I just ordered one from China, 72mm, 6 stops. $44. I think the average pricing is around $55+.

I have the prond100 (6,2/3-stop) and it works well.
Wondering if I should get the prond500 (9-stop) or the prond1000 (10-stop) next.  :p

The reviews I have read indicated that they cast a color on the shots.

Get the Haida. You won't be disappointed.

I bought the Hoya 6-stop, and some time later purchased a Lee kit with the 10-stop (Super Stopper). In general, the square/rectangle shape of the Lee style filters along with the holder they use is what I prefer, but occasionally will screw on the Hoya, particularly when I'm not taking all the camera stuff with me and want to throw a filter in my pocket in case it may be needed.

If I were you, I would get a 2 stops or 3 stops ND filter and to stack it. From what I read and understand, 9 stops/10 stops are often used if you want to create creative BW shots. Most people use the 6 stops filter more....Personally, I am planing to stack it with a CPL filter with my 6 stops ND. That should give me about 8 stops. I could also stack two long exposure shots in CS6 in order to get the necessary 10 stops+ motion blur effects.
