240 Sec in bright sunlight around 6:00 p.m. with Lee Big Stopper. I had some time to kill before two concerts later in the evening, so I tried playing with some much longer exposures (~15 min) with the Lee system mounted on top of a B+W 6-stop, but the noise coupled with the strong vignette simply didn't work out.

Quick question. How come I am getting mass vignetting with really dark corners when using a 10 stop on my 24-105 when I see no vignetting and very nice corners on people using 16mm lenses...

What FL?
Perhaps you need a WA adapter?

I tend to get heavy vignetting as well, regardless of my lens or settings. I typically have at least one circular filter directly on the lens (either ND or CPL) and mount a 77mm wide-angle adapter for the foundation kit to that filter.

I just accept it as part of the constraints of using the 100x100's, so I try to frame to accommodate at least 10-20% cropping and then also fix the vignette via Raw adjustments. For example, here is the SOOC raw image from the shot above (click to enlarge):

I did crop this one more than usual, but very few of my long exposures go uncropped.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I've read the adapter and ND filter go on first.... and then grads, CPL's and other filters. I think the adapters are only made to work if they are primary.

You're completely right – that's how they're intended to work. However, I don't have a 105mm CPL and find it works just fine to mount the 77mm wide-angle adapter to the front of my 77mm CPL. I simply adjust to the proper polarization before mounting the Lee kit (via the quick-release latch on the 100mm filter mount) and try not to turn it too much in the mean time.

As you can see, I get a bit of vignetting, but it's not unworkable. The above photo was taken with, mounted in this order: 6D Body >> 16-33mm IS Lens >> 77mm CPL >> Foundation Kit via 77mm WA adapter >> 100x100mm Big Stopper >> 100x150mm Soft Grad.

It's at 24mm

It was happening no matter what f/ was used.

I had the 77mm cpl on first. Then the lee filter kit ring screwed into the cpl then then holder with lee big stopper.

Try stacking the Stopper first. I think it will solve the issue.

The only way to stack the stopper first would be to use a 105mm CPL with an adapter or 100x100mm square polarizing filter. There's no way to use standard 77mm (or any similar size) in front of a Big/Little stopper.

does anyone use a big stopper with an 85II?

i use it with the 24II, but I may want the larger ring for the 85II... was wondering if anyone did.

Yup, stacking the Lee on top of a screw on will get ya.

I use the Lee square CPL on top of the BS. No vignette issues.

I do have a screw on B&W CPL as well - admittedly easier than the Lee system. I use whichever fits the need at the time.

This ~is~ POTN after all. Get both.  :p :-D

I also use the square CPL inside the Lee holder and have used it at 16mm without vignette. I wouldnt dream of trying to stack the filter holder on top of a screw on filter. I get slight vignetting when I use my 82mm WA adapter with a 77mm step down ring
