Now that's a nice idea.

That's just what I did with mine, the welding glass fit nicely (a bit tight but it squeezed in!), then I just used some tape to seal up any light leaks :)

Great waterfalls MakeMeShutter!

I've been contemplating knocking out the glass from some cheapy UV filter and cementing the glass on, but that Cokin P holder idea would be much more versitile.

Just bought a "Sade 10" filter - Anyone have a problem with soft images?

Here are two 100% crops - no sharping applied

No filter @ 1/160

You have to remember that this is not optical grade glass it's designed for protection not to see through well.

I think it depends on the bit of glass the one I have now is not as good as the one I had before and dropped.

Almost looks like you may have bumped your tripod... If not then maybe there is some manufacturing residue on the glass itself... And if not that either than it may be just bad glass...

or maybe shift of focus after installing glass.
I prefer manual focus lenses and always mark the position of the focus ring before putting the glass on.

Thanks Drew

I like the idea of the cokin holder as well.

Hmm, that doesn't look right at all. Possibly you've moved the tripod, or not used mirror lockup or perhaps wind has blown the lens during the exposure?

Yeah would agree that that doesn't look right. I didn't know there was a thread for this! I picked up my filter last week.
