Thanks. Yes, I added a static shot of the sky I took the next day.

Hi guys,

I didn't read the whole 630 pages but do you use a filter? Which one do you prefer?

I'm considering buying all the stuff to make some rig shots

Thank you!

A lot of people use a 10stop ND Hoya/B+W

And some people only use a CPL and do morning/night shots only

When you go to buy make sure you get a Thin/Slim Filter so you can stack just about everyone runs a CPL to reduce reflections of the rig

Has anyone tried these "Handle On Demand" double suction cup grips? They hold 200 lbs each and are only $12 so I bought a pair to try once I get a boom to attach them to.

I'm interested in getting into this but I want to start on a budget.

Some people use thoes style of cups, i dont really like them, the woods are super easy to work with and already have the 3/4" screw on them :D

Anyone suggest a good method of cleaning the rubber on the cups? Just some soapy water? Any solutions to stay away from?

Anyone use the square style filters that you can slide into the holders? I just looked at BHPhoto, and in order to get a 77mm CPL and 3 stop ND (NDX8 0.9), I'm looking at another $200 ... any suggestions on reasonable options for these?
