    Do you- or a photographer you know- suffer from Sticky Filter Syndrome? There is no need to be ashamed… we’ve all been there. I've just posted this informative video gives a quick fix and a preventative cure for this dreaded photographic ailment.

    Good film. I use a wide rubber band instead of a filter wrench but think the latter is simpler to use. You might have mentioned that aluminum and/or plastic framed filters are more problematical than steel because they flex.

    I have tried many many different filters and now only use B+W filters and they also stick from time to time but your right not as much as the cheap aluminum ones do ( - now that I have been using the wax tech I outlined in the video for the last year plus never one sticky filter!) I've used the rubber band as well...it works in a pinch.
