Keep in mind that using a variable ND filter at it's higher settings can introduce purple into the blacks, and a hot mirror may be required.

All the Best!

You got a Circular Polarizer, Linear Polarizer and setup up ring for $40? Really? Because you can get a Variable ND filter for $110.

I'm a little confused about the possibility of vignetting. If I wanted a Fader ND for the 50/1.2L would I just get that thread size, i.e. 72mm, or do I need to go bigger (77?) with a step up ring?

thanks.

Best place to buy Fader ND?

This thread has convinced me I'd be better off just spendind a few extra bucks and getting a true Fader (albeit not the premium-priced Singh). Next question: Where to buy? Is it true you can get a serviceable Fader ND for ~$100? I'd love for people who've bought these online to post a current link. I'm looking for a 77mm for a Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS, and then I'll buy some step-up rings for my other lenses.

So, where'd you buy, how was the purchase experience, and how'd you like the fader?

Anyone using a fixed ND filter before the fader? I'm thinking of trying that with a four or six stop ND.

Good experience. PayPal, cheap international shipping, etc. Probably the same seller as on eBay anyways. Nice product that comes with a spiffy little plastic case and fitted lens cap. Backordered for now though...

Well stap me! I never heard of that either .. I have enough trouble with one. With my earlier cams I used a Moose CP but no longer. With HDV I like to gather original colours and maybe screw around in post.
Cheers.

I bought mine on eBay for $109. It just arrived after ordering it on 3/25/10.

No problem with the 24-105 since it is a full frame 35mm lens on the 7D.
Very tiny vignetting in the corners on the 10-22. @ 11mm gone.

Hi Allan. You can't really reproduce the effect of a CP filter in post. It is not just a colour or exposure change, it also reduces reflections from glass and water surfaces and lets you see "inside".
