I've never seen one in 6" x 6". All I've seen are the 4.5"x 5.25". I don't know what the diameter of your Nikkor 14-24mm is but if it's bigger than the 4.5" x 5.25" piece of glass then that is one wide lens.

The outer diameter of the lens cover on contact with the sun shade is 98mm so almost 4". 4.5" may cover it if I can get the form factor so the filter is within a couple of mm from the limit of the sun shade. Even still I can't find those glass squares here, only ND 3.0 Gels which kinda defeat the objective.

Cheers.
Mark

Are you trying to mount your glass on the end of the hood? I mount mine using the filter threads.

I put the hood on backwards and used the tulip shape of the hood to hold mine on with rubberbands.

Littlejon Dsgn - Did you read that I am using a Nikkor 14-24mm on a 5D3 with a Novotech adapter? There are no filter threads on that lens. There are available matte box / filter holders available with filters but I'm not going to spend the best part of US$300 fot them when I will not be shooting enough of this genre for it to be financially viable. I'd like to give it a go first and see if I would look to investing any more into that lens.

Cheers,
Mark.

Hope to have my first tests soon with this. I went and bought a replacement lens cap for the humongous Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8 which I attach to my 5D3 with a Novotech adapter. I cut the protective element off of the lens cover and then fitted some high density foam around the outside of that. Perfect fit onto the lens. I sourced a piece of glass that I've had custom cut as this is a huge lens, my cut off is a 4 1/2 inch square. When I've got the complete contraction together I'll take and post some pics, along with my first effort.

Cool Beans.
Mark.

Thread seems dead. Here's my new filter holder. Shooting with the Nikkor 14-24mm on a 5D3 using Novotech adapter. Bought a lens cap, cut off the front element and sunk that into some high density foam. Bought a piece of welding glass and duct taped the holy heck out of the contraption to keep it all in one piece and free of light leaks. Once in place I aim to seal completely with some electricians tape around the edge of the holder on the sun hood of the lens. Fingers crossed, trials tomorrow.

My first trial with this style of imaging. The path to get the shot is as adventurous as the shooting itself, love it.

And this, including how I made the homemade filter and holder for my, shhhh Nikkor 14-24mm f2.8, by way of Novoflex adapters, is how it all happened (external link)...

After reading through all of these pages and witnessing all the great pictures I am itching to obtain a piece of this glass. Hopefully I'm able to find a place near me that sells is. I'm going to have to check out a bunch of hardware stores soon.

I recently ended up getting one and took some photos today. Unfortunately all of them look like this. This line is on all the photos and it doesn't matter if I rotate the glass 180 degrees or change between 16-35mm, it's always on the same position. As you can see, the result is far from useable even if you go for B&W. Any ideas on what the problem could be or should I just give up?
