I officially own 0 (ZERO) usable filters now..dropped my last 77mm UV filter (that I dont use anyway) recently..been using a cracked 77mm B&W CPL for a while.
Since I rig, I need ND filters to give me more flexibility on shoot times and locations. Tying myself to the 1/2 hour after sunset or using a parking garage is kinda tough on scheduling sometimes. Ive been kicked out of every parking garage in a half hour radius anyway.
My new rigging kit is 5D MkII + 16-35L II. This means 82mm filters. My other lenses are 77mm (70-200 2.8, Sig 1.4, 24-105L) and if I get the 70-200 f/4 itll be a 72mm, but that can be handled with adapter rings?
I was thinking going with the 4x4 or 4x6 filter system? That way I have the option for GNDs also?
How does a CPL work in that system?
And what are the brands to get? I dont have a billion dollars to spend on filters, but I dont want to put crap glass in front of my $texas lenses, either.
I need 2 NDs (3 or 4 stop) and a CPL at the least.
