Re: Nice soft background with Kit Lens

The nd filter used was not good enough, easiest is to get a quality variable nd filter so you can dial in the needed ND, she also says the Hoya 0.9 ND softened the image and gave a greenish tint, when I look on Amazon for the Hoya filters it seems they are very cheap so you get what you pay for. This is a nice example though about the image degradation when using a inferior filter.

Re: Nice soft background with Kit Lens

Based on the variable ND filter tests in this video I went with the Genus GL GNDF-67 ND 67mm


I bought a stepdown ring for my 50mm . Using the filter I was able to go at 0 DB 1/30 shutter and f1.8 outside in bright daylight using the 50mm lens.

The Genus filter is well built and priced. I think I paid $108 via Amazon and Adorama.
