    Who makes a 82mm 6 stop or 10 stop nd filter?

    I'm trying to standardize on 82mm circular glass filters. I'd like Heliopan or B+W but they don't make a 6stop or 10 stop nd. I don't want to stack filters and that won't work on my wide lenses anyway.

    They will make it to any size you like too. Problem is, do you want to max out the Amex Black card?
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    I have the B+W 6-stop ND in 67mm, so they do make it, and I know Heliopan makes them in large sizes to order. You could e-mail Bob Salomon at HP Marketing to find out about the availability from Heliopan.

    I know they make the density i'm looking for but they stop at 77mm and they aren't multicoated like their 1,2,and 3stop nd's. I was hoping i could avoid a custom order.

    Like wildbill says, Schneider / B+W stops their dense neutral density filters at 77 mm. You can find out exactly which filters are standard items from http://www.schneideroptics.com/filte...l_photography/ -- click on "Filter Size Chart" to download an Excel spread sheet. Heliopan appears to continue as standard items their denser neutral density filters to larger sizes, including 82 mm -- click on "Preisliste" at http://www.heliopan.de/. The dense neutral density filters are price group 2 (page 3), and page 8 lists a recommended price (Euros) for 82 mm filters of price group 2. You probably should check with your Heliopan distributor to be sure that all filters of price group 2 are available in this size.

    Bill , maybe you can get away with using a 82>77mm step down ring for the one lens that requires 82mm and standardize to 77mm. Vignetting may be a problem with WA lenses but if not this could be a better way to go especially if your other lenses are closer in size to 77mm. The problem with 82mm is that you are always going to have supply and availability problems with a size that large.

    Hoya makes an 82mm 8x ND filter and it is multicoated. I just looked on the B&h website:

    I have a couple of Hoya filters, and while the rings arn't quite up to the Heliopan, B+W standards, they make a very nice filter.

    8X is three stops, he is looking for 6 to 10 stops.

    BTW, what is the purpose of a ten stop ND filter? Why not use reasonably slow film?
