I think some of us have moved on to ND10 filters since the price has dropped spo much on them. I still have mine but finding time to shoot anything lately has been a real challenge for me.

Ha... moved on... but there's something special about the DIY bit of welding glass stuck to the front of an expensive lens! :-P

It was truly a neat novelty to me when I first started using it.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

I'm still following this thread, and I definetely want to take more pics with my WG, but I just haven't been running into any good motivs lately... I don't live near the sea or moving waters.
But I always have it in my Photo Backpack, just in Case.
Would be a shame to spend so much time building it with an adapter, to only use it a handful of times.


Cheers, Kevin ;)

I've found cloud movement to be pretty neat with these if you're looking for something different to shoot with it.

I got another use out of my welding glass filter, I used it to take a picture of the broken LED modeling lamp on my new portable flash kit in order to file a complaint with the vendor...
With the filter I got a nice exposure of 1/80 @F4.5 and ISO 100
(I have to say it is a very bright LED even though 3 of the 5 rows on the chip were already broken)

....

Just a suggestion, but you may want to enable long exposure noise reduction (LENR) in your custom functions. It will help a lot with long exposures and the resulting hot pixels you see (those white dots every where).

Very best,

I also went to a waterfall lately, so of course I packed the welding glass:

The colour was not that nice, and I found it quite distracting, so I converted it to B/W
(Ironically, because it had rained a lot and there was so much water, the waterfall was not as impressive as I had hoped -.- )
