As we don't charge your cc until we ship, in your position I'd keep the order open.
If you find it elsewhere before we get one out to you then drop me an email:HelenO@adorama.c​om, and I'll cancel it for you.

Or take 2 and sell the spare!

Best wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year

Hey Helen.. looks like you have PMs turned off... but I was hoping I could ask you more generally if you have any plans to address Canadian shipping? Currently it is quite expensive to buy from you while B&H has recently revised/improved their shipping to Canada

Helen's preference is that you email her. She's got the same 100-slot mailbox everyone else does, and email reaches her faster.

Hi

Yes, it is being looked at - in the meantime, we will always price match to other reputable retailers :wink:

Looks like its out of stock everywhere in the UK.

Made the decision to try the B+W, Fotosense have a great deal on them at the moment if anyone is interested (remember to use Quidco, too)

Mhmm they don't even ship to Canada. Looks like I'm going with B&H!

I ordered from 2filter on Nov. 16th and just got noticed that it has been shipped to me. They seem to be pretty quick, but then again I wasn't in a hurry for it.

Looks like I got onto the same batch as whiskey. The big stopper is just one of those items that you need to get on a backorder list for. You might get lucky but the pre-order is the only real shot.

I'm just getting into filters now. I already have the Lee holder.

Should the Big Stopper be on my list ahead of a couple of GND's or would I get more use out of the GND's first?

My husband and I have been traveling more in recent years and I was really wishing I had a GND on our trip to Pacific Northwest last fall which started me on this path. We have a trip to Alaska planned for June.

So........Big Stopper or GND's?

They are really for two VERY different situations basically... I'm gonna pick up GND closer to spring and in the meantime have lots of fun with my B+W 10 stop when it arrives :)

A 10 stop filter has very specific use[long exposure in bright light for example] . If I were to only buy one filter, I'd be buying a 0.9 GND. The 0.9 GND is very useful for getting what I consider a pleasing look to any bright horizon.

I might buy a few Lee Big Stoppers and then sell my place in line for a profit to a future buyer who needs one quick. ;)

Planning ahead like that is good Savas!

I agree with ender, if you are just coming to grips with filters a 10 stop is probably a very big first step. They produce very specific styles of images and complicate the shooting process considerably (cannot frame through viewfinder - sometimes through liveview, but since I don't have it I wouldn't know). I would say CPL + .9 + .6 GND, with the possiblity of adding a full ND if you decide you are looking for that effect. Although if you somehow get on a list shorter than mine and get your hands on one of the Big Stoppers I will gladly take it off your hands!

Cheers,

I do realize that the Big Stopper and GND's have very different uses. I'm trying to decide which one I'd be most likely to use in Alaska in June. I'd like to have both, just in case, but my wish list is already pretty long.

thanks for the advice.

A normal ND and a GND is what you should get first imo. You can use them in almost every landscape shot you take.
