    I received a promo from Vanbar about this. I did wonder how they ended up with overstocking to this degree. Do our digital comrades not use filters?

    I got me a bag load of filters today. Was like everyone coming into the store was going for the filters. You could tell they were all film users. I could not really find anything for my DSLR. But my old Praktica's have lots of new effects filters. There was so many filters my brain went into overload in what to get.

    I stocked up last week - now I have these lovely little filter pouches and the "mirage" effect in several sizes. More usefully, some skylights, a polariser and an actually useful stepping ring...

    No, digital filters are in post processing, AFAIK.

    A polariser is still handy for digital - reducing water, glass reflections would be a tedious chore indeed in post....

    Actually, filters are still very much needed in digital.
    It's one of the great fallacies of the digital era to claim that somehow, magically, PP can compensate for adequate colour balancing.

    Yes, I know: it can be done in PP!

    But last time I looked, the verb "can" is not a synonym for "should", in the Queen's language!!!

    See: http://cjeastwd.blogspot.com/2010/03/tools-for-job.html
    and
    http://cjeastwd.blogspot.com/2010/03...reduction.html
    for an excellent text on why filters are still needed with digital.
