    Hitech Lucroit Wide Angle Filter Holder Adapter Ring HTLPAN714

    Any one try this one? It is cheaper than the last one I posted.

    Sorry guys,,,,my mistake.... This thing only attaches the filter holder to the lens or camera not sure anyway the actual filter holder is over 400 bucks.
    Still working on my DIY filter holder. I can't see spending that much coin on something like this

    Do these filters cover the whole view?
    I mean, 7-14mm lenses covers nearly 180' angle!

    I would think so. And it's 'only' 114 degrees.

    Still, it's absurdly expensive for a machined ring with a thread on it.

    What kind of filters are you thinking of putting on this lens? I can only think you'd want to use a polarizer or perhaps NDs.
    That's a crazy price for a filter holder.
    I use to own an Oly Trip which took a basic square filter holder that screwed into the lens thread. These were available for all sizes of thread. Would this work?
    Unless I need a polarizer or ND, I can create any filter effect in Photoshop and with more control.

    Let me try the DIY method explained on a different thread here. I want to be able to use a 9-10 stop filter. Let's see how that works.

    Real Name:
    Primarily people want to be able to use ND/GND filters. Polarizers are not too useful for this wide of a lens unless the light source is in a very specific direction. Your certainly right about post-processing, most of us would like to extend our shutter times and darken the sky a bit.
