I'm a bit unclear as to what it is you want. Do you want exposures like the ones seen in this thread?

What filter are you currently using? Can you post a link to it?


As an example, here is a 90 second exposure using this filter: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …mm_110_Solid_Ne​utral.html (external link)

lol schagen, I saw your shot, 4 seconds, F22... no way is it a 10 stop filter.

nd10 is like 3 stop. you need an ND1000 aka 3.0 aka 10 stop. Naming convention is weird, but you'll figure it out.

"Weird" as in "there isn't one"! For some manufacturers ND10 means 10 stops, and for others it means a factor of 10x in light blocking (which is just over 3 stops). You will also see some where the number is the exponent of 10 that indicates the reduction in light, so that ND 3.0 means 10^3 (1000x, or about 10 stops). In astronomy, that last one is the standard, so that my solar filter is ND 5.0, or 100000x (just over 16 stops).

Thanks heaps! Yeah I'd prefer to go the screw on mainly because of the convenience of it and I don't like the bulkiness of the square. its possible to screw a filter on to another one isn't it?

You can stack filters. The issue with stacking screw on filters is vignetting caused by the thickness of the filter frames.

With regards to convenience, yes screw on filters are less bulky than slot in panel filters and they dont require an additional holder etc but they are a PITA to use when using a 10 stop filter, as you will have to set up your shot, meter it, focus (turn focus to manual) then you have to screw on your filter taking care not to adjust the focus. Thats the bit that can lead to out of focus shots if your not careful

The other issue about using screw on ND grad filters is that you want the graduation to start on the horizon normally. Since you cant raise or lower the filter itself like you can with a slot in you have no choice but to frame the shot so that the horizon is smack bang in the middle of the frame. Not ideal.

If you just want to use the screw on 10 stop ND filter on its own then with a bit of care it becomes straight forward enough. Personally i wouldnt even bother with screw on grads for the reason I said above

I get on fine with screw in SOLID ND filters 3 stop & a 10 stop. I'm pretty good at guessing the exposure & can compose using live view.

For my ND Grads I do use the square type - I have 85mm HiTech for 28mm & 50mm primes [& film] & I have Lee 100mm for the 17-40L

For those doing the sunset/sunrise shots....are you guys using reverse grads (in addition to the 10 stops of course)?

I have got and use a hitech 3 stop reverse grad occasionally for long exposures, more often than not I use regular lee grads!

I sold my hitech reverse. It had a red colourcast and I wasn't using it enough. Just regular grads now with CPL and stoppers

Nice shot. I would not have thought about the spinning water wheel ahead of time.

Yep mine has a very slight magenta cast, easy to sort out though!
