Re: Filters with the Merrill compacts?

Yes filters can be used.... I use my same 77mm Singh Ray filters I used with my other gear but use a step down ring to 49mm to connect them.

I have found some seriously odd coloring splotches will show up if I apply a significant amount of ND filtering. I use a Vari ND and just have to stay away from "MAX" by 2 dots to avoid this issue.... really no big deal. Circular polarizers both neutral and warming work well, gradients also work as expected up to 4 stops (as that is as far as I own). I use my DP2m just like I used to use my larger formats for scenics.
