now that i think about it, i shouldn't have shaved the sides of my glass and should have filed off the bottom filter a little to make it more snug. d'OH oh well, the sides won't fit into the image.
edit* Nice! I shaved the bottom row just enough so that I can still use the 2nd row as well! The filter now fits flush to the filter holder and i am ready to do some more test shots!
Long story short: mod your filter holder, not your filters. Be careful with using a dremmel tool as it is always easier to take away than to add back on.
Time to do some tests!!! I'll be doing some night shots later this evening. One thing that is advantageous when using this filter is that it allows you to use 30 seconds for an exposure as opposed to the cheap nd filters that you buy on ebay for $24.99 which only reduce the exposure to say 3 or 5 seconds. However, this welding glass filter DOES give off a GREEN tint as evidenced in previous posts, which may be difficult to correct in post processing. Be sure to shoot in raw whenever using filters.
