Forgot to ask, should I get a neutral density filter for the lens? If so what kind (I would want a circular)

+ 1 on the 10-22 (I see you already made up your mind :) ). I would get a polarizer and UV lens for it (77mm) for starters.

If you're planning on landscape shots with movement in it that you want to slow down/blur (like water) then yes, an ND would be great. Or if you're wanting to darken skies while keeping the ground exposed, then a graduated ND would be great.

But, to start with, maybe a Circular Polarizer would be good. :)

Careful - Polarizing filters often yield poor results on UWA lenses. The 10-22 is so wide that you'll get uneven polarizing effect across the field of view that will show up as a dark blue streak across the sky.

Wow, I forgot about that...

Yeah, a Circl. Pol. would be most effective at 90 degrees from the sun, since a UWA has more than 90 degrees, you'll have that weird banding across part of the sky.

Yeah, I think if you get a very slim one like this it won't happen: http://www.adorama.com​/BW77CPLW.html (external link)

I got one from Best Buy (rocketfish brand) and here is an example of what I think he's talking about (darker area in the sky):

Nah, slim version might help with vignetting but not with uneven polarization effect.

I used the B+W K-Polarizer (external link) on my 10-22 with poor results. It was very hard to get shots where the sky didn't do funky things, and I ended up having to correct everything in photoshop anyways.

Maybe some pros have had a different experience, but I would not recommend a polarizer on UWA lenses. A ND filter, on the other hand...

Graduated ND filters are important for ultra wide angle images, but be aware that the extremely wide FoV means that you can frequently get vignetting. I'm hesitant to recommend the Canon P-series since that does vignette on a 21mm (full frame)... equivalent to 14 mm on your camera.

I'd therefore suggest the Cokin Z-Pro or (better) Lee Filters for the filter holder. In either case, a filter holder to accept 4" x 6" should do very nicely. Some people do quite fine just holding the filter in front of the lens.

As for the filters, I'd recommend Lee or Singh Ray. Sadly, both tend to be very expensive however they do marvelous things. I think the 1 stop hard edge graduated ND would be a good place to begin.

For dark glass, you can try your hand using welding glass (available from McMaster among others.) This does impart a strong colour cast but it's relatively easy to corrent in post processing... especially if you take a trial shot using an 18% grey card. Don't forget that you will need very long exposures, so a tripod and cable release are essential.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.
