30 mins was my longest when I was first starting out on long exposures. Was a waste of time as the shot is pretty poor (although its still on my flickr) but was a learning experience

As I recall my longest waa about 4 hours on my 40D with the battery grip. :) batteries were dead when I went to check on it 5 hours after I started it.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Hello everyone.
I am trying to decide between a Lee Big Stopper vs. Singh Ray vs. Breakthrough Photography. There are some amazing shots in this thread and a lot of expertise here. I can think of no better people to ask than you. I’d appreciate any input in a thread I started recently. Thanks.

Yeah, don’t make me send PMs to each one of you :-D:-D

Okay, so here's my thoughts:
1) If you are not already running the LEE Filter system, you would have to invest in the LEE Filter Holder + LEE Big Stopper (at a minimum) in order to use the Big Stopper.
2) LEE or Singh Ray 10-stop filters are very good filters
3) Budget??

It took me a while to "learn" the use of the Big Stopper, but am now getting much better results and am very happy with the Big Stopper. I had already invested in a myriad of other LEE Filters before I bought the Big Stopper, so it was kind of a no-brainer for me (CP, 2-stop soft GND, 3-stop soft GND, Coral Stripe, Coral GND, Sunset 2, blah blah).

I know its off topic a bit...what is the coral filter for...my foundation kit came with one and I have not done ANYTHING with it...not sure what you would do with it...I am sure there is a reason and something for it...and I am sure I am just missing it...

I use the Coral Filter, periodically, when out in Moab and other locations in southern Utah...depending on the light. That filter tends to enhance (imo) certain compositions.

I just got my Lee system and haven't been able to get out with it yet. I have a friend the has a Singh Rat reverse Gradient as well as Lee and absolutely loves it. I posted my purchase prices recently either on this thread or on the 1D4 users thread. I just received the 1,2 &3 ND filters and they are gels nap so I'm not sure how they will work yet. I've never heard of the other company I'm not sure what you will get with them, good lenses are usually expensive for a reason but every company has to start somewhere, maybe you'll get a good deal on a great lens.

something a little different...3 exposures, done with the TSE 24mm, the LEE BS and the Lee .9 Grad for the top which is one 75 second exposure, the bottom two were 200 seconds, so that the color cast was the same for all three...it was minimal...

Speaking of long exposures, this one was taken at midday in Australia, using both a Hoya ND400 and a Lee big stopper; obviously horrible colour noise hence the black and white conversion

32 minutes during the day!

The Lee holder isn't really necessary. The Cokin Z-Pro series is compatible and a lot less expensive. I have the Cokin holder, and a Lee big stopper. Along with various other brands of other filters.

32 mins?! I would think you would have A LOT more cloud movement. Almost to the point where you can't see them. I can still make out the clouds in the far distance

Clouds in the distance, even if they move as fast as the clouds near, are less blurred as the near clouds. Its like when you get startrails with a 100mm lens while the same exposure with a 24mm lens wouldnt show movements.

"Obviously"? Please explain to those who are not as expert as yourself.

Exposures that long, tend to generate a lot of heat on the sensor, so you get a lot of noise, not from high ISO but from heat. The 7D is particularly sensitive to that, I have done some 5 and 6 minute with mine and they looked about the same as that...the 5DII tolerates it more. And its not a noise that can easily be post productioned out...
