Wow Paul. Thanks!
The dealer is awaiting delivery on it and then will ship.
I'm wondering if I should put the breaks on it and go with a B&W?
I have no access to a big HD monitor and am about to head to Asia for the next few years. I need one good filter. Now what?

I've got the Rycote softie.
It does appear in the shot when shooting wide, however, i recently got one of the Rode SM5 shock mounts ands this has cured the problem as well as isolating the mic from unwanted sounds.

So is it the short-hair or long-hair Softie you have Paul?

one thing though on the filters with the mrc or as other brand calls it, multi coating. they make cleaning the filter very difficult.

That's the funiest thing I've heard all day. Any raw glass is going to have less than perfect light transmission. Schott glass (used by European filter manufacturers) is the purest glass on the market which is then enhanced by coatings. We (filter manufacturers) use coatings on filters to enhance light transmission as it passes through the filter. The difference in light transmission is based on a combination of the glass quality and coating technology.

B+W filters are made with a special Multi-Resistant-Coating (MRC) that resists scratching from cleaning and dust. This is the most durable coating in the industry. B+W filters also use a brass ring instead of aluminum to prevent cross threading due to changes in heat and cold.

ryan,

any difference in using the schneider "clear" with MRC over the "UV" ultra slim with MRC which i bought for our Sony PMW-EX1 cam?

will the clear allow for more resolution over the UV?

a lot of us here with EX1 wants to know from the Schott glass folks....


thanks

paul
