What very good quality, but cheap 2 stop ND Grads filters are there to choose from that are worth buying? I'm hoping for under $100
Lens is a Canon 15-85mm so I might need a slim version if they make them.

You would be better off with an AHF (adjustable horizon filter) :wink:

I used to own the Lee holder but find it faster to just handhold them in front of the lens.

This I agree with. If you're on a budget, Hitech is the way to go. The more expensive ones come at a price. Lee and Singh Ray would be those two. I also recommend purchasing a Lee filter holder if the OP can swing the cost. :)

ok what is a good filter holder? lol :D I have no idea what I would need to get with a resin filter.

I will probably just get the BW filter, but just encase I get the other, would be nice to know what I need. I hear about light leaking from the sides and getting reflections, so I'm not sure if resin filters are what I would wanna mess with.

Note! To use this holder, an optional adapter ring must be purchased :rolleyes:

I think I will just stay with the screw on filters. If I had a 5D2 and some L lens and I was out taking photos more then I am able to now, I would invest in it, but for now, my 1 lens and crop sensor, I'll just say screw it :p

The problem with screw on GNDs is composing your shots properly. It's more of a pain imo and it's so much easier to slide the grad in the holder. ;) If you go the screw on route, I wish you luck :)

This video here has me wondering.. Must have a pretty sturdy tripod?
Long exposure, using the camera button, pushing the filter on the end of the glass and moving it up and down.. Isn't that what not to do?
