    Nice.... 45mm seems like a slightly odd length to choose for the filter though.

    Where did you get it by the way? 10 stop ND filters seem hard to come by.

    I read that the Heliopan gives a red/purple color cast... have you noticed?

    Hi
    Thanks for ur comments. I didn't notice any color casting so far. I just play with iPhoto to adjust tint, temp etc otherwise I am pretty happy with them.The worst offenders are graduated ND filters .

    I use the same filter on the same lens. I don't believe the filter gives a cast itself, but it did upset the auto white balance of my G3 which led to a purple cast to the images. Very easy to fix in post. I've just changed to an E-M5 so I'll see how the white balance on that fares.

    Good quality filter. I got mine from Teamworkphoto here in the UK.

    Well all of this got me buying some ND filters.

    Previously I had a Genius ND2-400 variable. It wasnt brilliant - it was supposed to be 8 stops but only was 6 which wasnt really enough for 'silky' seas especially without diffraction.

    So I ordered a 10 stop B+W 58mm (US$60 flea shipping) off fleabay - should fit the 12-35 and 75. I hope it isnt going to vignette at 12 which is where I want to use it. I also ordered a 3 stop B+W for general use in Asia's bright conditions.

    A 10 stop ND filter? Are you sure that isn't a lens cap?

    :smile:Nice work, BTW.

    Thank you for sharing - looks nice. I've ordered one of the new Formatt Hitech ND Grad for system cameras (smaller size). Hope to receive it in the next week.

    Will try heliopan

    Lovely photos and the info on the Heliopan's neutral rendition is really helpful.

    I've been using a Hoya 0.8 plus Cokin filters (eg: Tim Woodcock Photography/Personal Work/39554_130108) but they deliver a strong magenta/red cast and I'm suspicious that PP doesn't bring it all back into line without loss.

    So off to Teamwork to get a 52mm for my newly acquired 9-18mm Zuiko......
