I was happy using a xume magnet to attach my filters until it popped of (I accidentally bumped it with my shoulder when the camera was on a tripod) and my expensive nd filter fell onto the floor and got damaged, now I screw the filter on as that is much more secure.

Re: DSLR Shooters.... ND Filters....what level and when are you using them?

I've been reading everything everyone is posting and also pricing filters for the last few days. Along with that I've been reading reviews and investigating the IR contamination issues too. I was planning on picking up a .9 Tiffen in the 82mm just to see what might happen. Those were $35 and felt I could gamble that without a lot of trouble. The variables from Tiffen or Hoya seemed to start at the $180 price point and head north from there.

I just did one more google search on Tiffen 82mm Neutral to see what might turn up. It looks like B&H begin a sale on the Tiffen variable today, Monday April 7, because they now had the Tiffen 82mm Variable Density for $119 shipped !!! The 77mm was under $110, so it must be all the popular variables from Tiffen are on sale there now. I popped on the Tiffen for the $119 as that was the same price I was seeing for a 3 filter set of .6,.9 and 1.2. Delivery is Thusday so I can update how it is then.

My good buddy Chris Harding was the one who first clued me into IR contamination issues. As I have gone out and investigated I am not able to see a pattern in which cameras or what filters or when it happens most. Have any of you guys had the IR contamination issues and was there some pattern to when you experienced them ???
