  • Years ago I read a blurb about tripod purchasing; the recommendation was to buy the best one can afford and be done with it.  After one interation of a modestly priced tripod I ended up investing ...
  • I too used the Cokin-P holder and Singh-Ray 'sprocket' warming polarizer for many years....it certainly worked/works.  I was never satisfied with how the polarizer rotated in the plastic Cokin ...
  • +1 on Singh Ray and Lee. Used Singh Ray for umpteen years, top notch quality product. For a holder system the NISI V5 Pro is excellent....it will hold any of the various manufacturer's 100 mm ...
  • You've got a real point on the 15 stop ND.  Only VERY recently did I even fiddle with the camera to the point of learning the value of the interval/composite shooting thing, it works quite well. ...
  • I recently went from K3 to K-1....these new 100 mm filters are big enough in my camera bag - if I buy an IRIX 15 mm lens I'll have to follow your roadmap, ugh....150 mm seems gigantic.   Might ...
  • Hi Brett what holder system are you using with those large 150  mm filters?   Presume you're using on UWA lenses- what model(s) and focal lengths? thanks/Bill
  • Hey Mike.....agreed, the Haida stuff I used until I moved to the 100 mm setup was darn good; I had the 6 and 10 stop ND's and they are ever so slightly warm. I did a couple of shots to test this ...
  • Well Brett....things are not always as the seem.  No promo here, simply passing on some info regards my newly acquired equipment.  I've used Hiada in the past and agree, it's great.  When I moved ...
  • Created discussion thread NISI Filter Holder - V5 Pro
    Folks, just a heads-up on the new NISI filter holder..... Today I received the NISI V5 Pro Holder (100 mm), 15 stop ND (NISI) and 2 Lee ND Grads. This holder is extremely well-designed and ...
  • Today I received the NISI V5 Pro Holder (100 mm), 15 stop ND (NISI) and 2 Lee ND Grads. This holder is extremely well-designed and constructed, I'm really impressed and am of course interested to ...

  • Oregon coastline will not disappoint - lots and lots of photo ops. This one was taken in January right near the very small coastal town of Bandon - the tide was WAY low that day - an interestingly ...
  • This is a tad bit off the topic....I put my Pentax K-1 into 'Interval Composite' shooting mode and snapped a couple pics at the very busy local beach - this mode can be used to sort of 'emulate' ...
  • Located a pretty good article on these 'interval' shooting modes here https://www.pentaxforums.com/articles/photo-articles/simulating-long-exposure-photography.html The author does not really go ...
  • Well....I'm not sure I'm the best at creating miniature indoor waterfalls but this seems to begin to prove the value of an in-camera long-exposure emulation method w/K-1. First pic is single frame ...
  • Thanks, I'm going to break out the user manual and study up on this functionality and see if I can make it work.  Played with the camera bit last night....it seems that the time between exposures ...
  • VERY interesting, thanks for sharing - I'll have to look up how to do this. So, w/K-1 then, one could create an image like this 4 minute exposure I took with ND filter, correct? (no waves breaking ...
  • Dear Chow....many thanks for providing the details on your holder and filters, appreciated.  I did not until now realize Haida made ND Grads, tho I'm not sure I'm up for glass after using Singh ...
  • Hmm.....never realized it but Haida makes ND Grads w/glass.
  • I always shoot raw too; and at times tweak WB. That Haida product is tough to beat for the price....too bad it's not made from tempered glass, I've dropped one of them and glass just doesn't ...
