this accentuates the texture of the acoustic ceiling tiles too much for my taste, but its still pretty good.

that's my fault, i used my own actions for adding micro contrast. I need a better subject to test.

Best I could find when buying it was about $1 / 8x10.

I just did a 13x19 print of one of my shots at high quality. Man I love this printer. I'm investing in some frames now! lol

Thanks.

Do you use plate filters? I have tried once to use my currently plate set up on my 24-70 and it will actually move the barrel if I angle the camera down.

yeah, my Canon 24-70L would move from the weight of the filters if it had too much tip up or down.
The Sony 16-35GM is tight enough now that I don't think it will move from the weight, it was me swapping filters, and at 16mm the barrel is extended out all the way.

Gotcha now. I see your issue now with using filters. I'll need to test mine to see if the zoom changes when working with filters on the lens. I usually setup my filters off camera and then attach the filter adapter to the lens after getting my focus and composition nailed down.

That only works if you're using solid ND filters. If you're using grads you need to put the filters on the lens while viewing the scene. The moving barrel issue is why I don't use my 24-70 for landscapes.

great point, I was using a grad last night too...at least until the sun got low enough.

Agree with you on grad ND filters. I don't use grad NDs that much though. Perhaps I would if I lived near the ocean and shot more seascapes. My FE 16-35GM is pretty tight so I don't see it moving from the weight of a filter kit up front. That will be another test I'll run though to make sure.

Travis, try loosening the small bolts on the filter adapter. I loosened mine so that the ND filters would slide in and out more easily. By default, they are too tight.

you can try using the rubber band for lenses, it helps keep it in place. I was using to prevent creeping in general. My lenses tend to move all over the place when mounting filters :-P

Of course, then the grads will fall right through. . . . That's what I love about the WCC holder, it doesn't rely on friction to hold the filters in place. You're not pushing a filter into place, just drop it in.

The 24-70 GM has a lock button to stop the barrel extending but you can only use it to lock it at 24mm (presumably when not in use). It would have been nice if it worked over the entire range

yeah, that is a big piece of kit though...a friend is one of their ambassadors, and last time we shot, I checked it out...its massive! really nice...but large. so there are tradeoffs.

I do like the overall concept of the WCC holder but it's just too big. And I didn't say loosen the screws completely. Just enough so there is enough tension so the ND filters don't fall through. :rolleyes: ;-)a

True, but mine lays on top of the other gear in my bag in an area that would otherwise be empty space, so it's size isn't really an issue as the space it takes up would be unused otherwise.

When I said "fall through" I wasn't thinking of them actually falling out, just sliding down. It's an issue I experienced with my previous holder.

I gotcha now. You made me take another look at the WCC holder. It doesn't look too bad with the Sony full frame camera. Hmmm..it’s pricey!
