your shot came out fantastic! i am wondering where you got your boom from? could you link me to it? thanks!

Welcome to the forum. I'm assuming you joined just to partake in our thread here, so welcome again :)

I didn't purchase my boom off the net. I built it myself as I didn't have funds for any rig package offered online. They are relatively simple and I was an engineering student so I figured I'd fashion my own. I learned everything I needed to know from this thread and from my pal Neil.

Consists of 4, 5ft sections of 2" aluminum tubing joined by ferrules and quick release pins. Total cost was around $120 for just the rig materials.

Thank you dude!

I don't own an ND yet, I was using a circular polarizer though, so I have a stop and some chnage or so of reduction. Shooting at ISO 50 was helpful too, even though ISO 100 would have worked just as well at a slighty higher f/stop. I just wanted to try 50.

I'm looking at picking up a .9 ND filter from B+W which is 3 stops of light reduction. I can't really say more than that since I haven't used an ND extensively yet. Hopefully I can stack my ND and polarizer and not loose too much noticeable IQ or have any weird light issues associated with stacking filters.

I took this photo as the sun dipped behind the mountain ridge over in the left side of the frame and that light lasted for 10 minutes or so and then was gone.

exif for this photos is 2 seconds f/10 ISO 50 @ 20mm

Thank you for your time to reply! That's great that you could achive that! I real thought that is was brighter than that.

Thanks for the info!

If there is anyone who tried or has and use ND filters, what do you suggest tu use? ND8 ND16 ND 32 or above?

Its hard to pick without actualy seeing what it does, from table sheets on the net I can't figure out which fits the most.

I have found adjustable ones, from 4-400 for example. Are they wort buying? Any comments are appreciated!

Go to your hardware store and look at the aluminum flag pole kits. About $100 and they already slide together. It's even a 2" outer diameter. :D

Cool shot, and cool angle. Driver involvement makes any rig-shot better. Great job!

Im also trying to decide on a nd, I think im going to go for the hoya 6 stop filter (I will be using it for landscapes and video also). If it makes the image too dark I can always just raise the iso. Ive read and watched many reviews on the variable nd's and you have to spend alot to get a good quality one and most have greater color shift than non variable nd's. But I would also like to know what you guys are using for nd's

I use an 8 and a 4 stacked if needed, along with a polerizer for reflections

Got watch any bits or dust in between them as at higher f stops you will see the dust
