It was somewhere around 745-8 pm. The sun had already dipped below the horizon behind me so it was basically right after sunset.

Just wondering what options there are for 10-stop filters at 82mm? Not really enough $$ to check out a Cokin/Lee system, but are they my only options?

Currently upgrading from 550D & 10-22 to 5D3 and (preferably) 16-35, but damn the silly 82mm thread!!

I love my B+W ND110 but from what I can see they don't go bigger than 77mm!

All my $$ will be going towards the body & lens, so I don't want to spend too much!! Any advice?!?

Look for a Light Craft Workshop Variable ND filter. I have their Variable ND II and it is amazing. They also have versions that are 9-12 stops and higher. They come in 82mm as well and cheaper than a lot of othes out there.

kobeson I would consider the Heliopan 3.0 as an option. If I'm not mistaken the filter is considered a thin mount with front threads. If I wasn't in such a rush to have one before my recent trip I would have highly considered this over the B+W. From my research there's not a huge amount of reviews on the Heliopan 10-stop ND, but from the ones I read it's comparable to the B+W and of course heliopan always has it's solid reputation...check out the link below..

I am not familiar with your filter, but I can relate to the frustration staring out with this kind of photography. One thing I figured out, and looking through this thread confirms, is: you don't want too much plant life in the shot. Even on a calm day, it is surprising how much plants move. Your shot is surprisingly sharp for a 10 second exposure with trees prominently in the shot.

I cheaped out and bought a cameron adjustable ND filter, before reading reviews online. I took some quick shots in my backyard and this was the best picture... Really dissapointed with the results. It seems as if the picture is split into 4 quarters, and the top left and bottom right portion of the picture is darker. Any one have a trick to solve this?
Thanks Colby

Well for the shot above the sun is on the upper right and it is shinning down towards the lower left. If that is the case the sun would illuminate the lower left of the pic leaving the lower right and the upper left on the darker side. That is the only explanation I have for this situation.

you sure youdon't have a problem with your 24-70 instead? If not, this might help:


"Only use your Variable ND within its recommended 2 to 8 stop range. If you go beyond the “MAX”, you may experience an uneven exposure or color shift that appears as an “X bar” in the image. This is more common when using higher densities on full frame cameras; however, can be experienced on any camera. This is a common issue– it’s the law of physics when combining two polarizing filters; however, this issue can be eliminated. First, adjust your focal length and then reduce the density (stop value) setting by rotating the filter ring until the color shift disappears. " - Tiffen

Thanks for the comments guys, for the photo I just quickly went into the backyard to try it out. The sun was almost directly behind me in the shot, I think the corner is bright due to the X affect as mike said. It might be user error but I did try it at the the exact marks for different stops and the pictures still had an uneven brightness. I think I am going to take it back and save up for a better quality non variable filter

Note that a photo can allow you to see thing you don't see with your naked eyes. If you look at the different quadrants in real life, your eyes will adapt to the light level.

I suggest you try the filter out more before you decide it isn't good.

Some great examples there Steve - you seem very happy with the filter, which LawrenceJ actually mentioned a few posts above yours!

Another endorsement, looking good - hope they deliver to Australia!
