Looking to invest in some Singh-Ray filters..

Which of you photo-magicians use them, hrm? Is it YOU? I thought it was.

I'm going to assume you have a PhD.

Which filters do you like to use? Which would you use to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge? And is it difficult stacking them AND rotating their outer rings to adjust their effects?

thanks,
Pope S. Masker

Just what filters are you asking about? S-R makes a variety...

Like I asked...which ones are you specifically referring to? Can't really give a direct answer if you don't know how to ask a direct question without all the cutesyness thrown in. :rolleyes: Can't answer about the Golden Gate Bridge...actually, no one can...it all depends on the conditions at the time and what you have in mind for the shot, but there are several options available. Best to read up on filters and their uses before plunking down a lot of money on them, FWIW.

If you want to stack and rotate and do all that fancy stuff check out Cokin P-series or P-Z Series (which I have). You attach an adapter ring to your lens then a filter holder slides onto the adapter. The holder will hold several square, rectangular, or circular (cpl) filters. The entire holder can be quickly taken off one lens and placed onto another that has the adapter ring pre mounted. Cokin makes a wide variety of filters including gradient, special effect and polarizers. Here's a link:

What's with the "That's right, I said it." in the subject? Is Singh-Ray a dirty word?
