Awaiting your review...if the gasket truly is a problem...its a problem...all my filters are gasketed....

It was easy removal from my Haida, if any film remaining from another brand, use cooking oil to clean up.

Gaskets are a total disaster on my Laowa filter holder. Really comes down to the wide FOV of the lens against the smallness of the 100mm filter...very limited tolerances. It also matters if the filter is not square to the camera. If it's rotated the filter holder itself will vignette in the image.

The Laowa filter holder is "built like a tank", which is not the best thing imo. Unlike the Lee holder, its fabricated out of solid metal, and it makes it really heavy. Hope that Bombo holder is lighter.

I was hoping to get a fully composite filter holder (a few bombo holders are that way), but the version I need to get has stainless steel, 200g, fairly heavy for it's size I think. there are other sizes, even fully composite filter advertised as lightweight, but had to get this version for it's ultra thin profile to avoid vignetting.

Early sunrise near Kemah, Tx from this past weekend. I may need to add more noise to the sky to mitigate banding.

Beautiful image. I find that banding in LE can sometimes be mitigated by the way you edit the saturaion and luminosity of the colors showing up in the sky. I have had very little issue with it on the Sony.

Hehe it's a Filipino term of endearment .....Vinz is my kinfolk. Technically it's short-hand for "pare" (pronounced pa-reh), which is a derivative of the Spanish word 'compadre'.

"Thanks pre" is the equivalent of saying "Thanks man".....Or if I'm being addressed by Eddie "Thanks mate" :-)

Looks great Alfredo. Adding noise should help, but make sure and use the ACR filter to add "grain" in the effects panel. Much more photographic and natural looking than the "add noise" filter in the PS "noise" filters.

Thank you David and Travis for the tips. I'll update the image with those in mind.

I'm using first one and usually with Xiaomi Mi Power Bank 10tk mAh

I've never bought anything from aliexpress. How's your experience buying from there?

Bad light does not matter when you have a stunning model.
