Looking for ND Filters for Both Video and Photos
Dec 31, 2012

I'm possibly getting the Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 lens. With that wide of an aperture, I'm going to need an ND filter. I have a GH2, and do some video work, so I'm looking to get a variable ND filter. I was looking at the Lightcraft Fader Mark II. I just saw a video and someone else used it, and it looked nice, but I don't really know how it compares to other brands. i'm not looking to spend much though.

I also would love to be able to take some photos too, and I've read that variable NDs are not good for photos. If there was a variable ND for both photo and video, that would be great. If not, I'm trying to find some good ND filters to get. I saw a kit that had .3, .6, .9, and 1.2. I wanted to ask, can you stack these? Like for example, if I need 6 stops down, I use the 1.2 and .6 together.

So if anyone could tell me which to get, that would be great.
