i am thinking of getting some nd filters, for ya know, clouds, and whatever, and light trails at night maybe .... in the end id like to end up with some nds, some grad nds, a polariser and all that stuff, but for now, id like to spend just maybe spend $300 ish
i was thinking of getting the lee 100mm stuff, maybe get like a 2 stop a 4 stop and 6 top nd or something like that. however, i have seen people also use polarising filters too, sometimes alongside nds, and graduated nds, and i dont have a polarising filter yet either.
but i have also seen that polarisers act like nd filters, and seem to kinda act like variable nds a little bit
so if you guys were buying, what would you get and why ?
1) a bunch of nds, and forget the polariser for now
2) maybe 1 nd and a polariser
3) screw the nds for now and just get a polariser
4something else ?
i have seen the variable nds, but, i dont fancy them because they have that "cross pattern" thing sometimes
what would you do and why ?
i have 77mm and 58mm lenses, and would prefer if it was all compatible with stepup rings if needed too
id like to hear your thoughts please
