G1X and 60 sec. exposure in a bright sunny day!! (pics)


Well finally I received my b+w ND filters (110 (10 stop) and 106 (six stop) , and my Manfrotto MK394-H tripod (highly recommended, best tripod I ever owned)

I went for the first test drive today and I am very surprise with the results, and of course I still need learn how to use these amazing "black glass" filters to get the most out of them (finding the right balance between, aperture, ISO, and time) I will try to further use them this weekend.

This is my set up:
b+w ND filters (110 (10 stop) and 106 (six stop))
Manfrotto MK394-H

Made in Germany, not cheap (please don't tell my wife :-)) but excellent quality

The 110 (10 stop) will give you much more longer exposures than the 106 (6 stop), so I recommend the 106 for the dusk, and the 110 in the bright sunny day.

All of the following shots are all 60 secs; the longest exposure the G1X can handle with out any hacks

I need to get used to shooting with black glass to master this art
Will post other results as soon as I have time to go to in the field.
