    Lee Filter Holder

    Do you have a name/Model Number?

    The nice thing about the lens holder RJ is talking about you can put them on the inside part of the lens and most times the holder will fit inside the camera and lens board. I do that with my 8x10 that way no glare and reflective properties happen. they also say that having the filter inside is better. not sure why i don't see any difference.

    don't you have to take the lens off the camera to do that & wouldn't you have to refocus - ?

    Is there such a thing as a combination yellow filter + ND?

    I'm still working on this.

    Paul, the one I bought that was flopping around was the Kodak Wratten ND 2.0 (6 2/3 stops). I like the strength of this just don't know which brand. I'm thinking about the Cokin system. Sometimes I shoot in the wind and need stability. With a bag bellows it's (the wind) not a problem. I got the 67-77 step up ring, but I don't think 77mm is big enough. still vignetting.

    The Wratten for all it's floppiness is going to be much cleaner optically than the Cokin.

    Dorothy,

    Remind me to bring my Voss gel holder to John's if you come down so that I can show you how to use gels inside the camera. I think a few places still carry an equivalent gel holder, but gels have gotten much more expensive.

    I'm planning on coming if I don't spend all my money on more filters!
    I'd like to see a Cokin X-pro and a Lee to see how they work

    I just bought a Sinar camera and the person who sold it had done the most ingenious thing.

    On the back of the lensboard he had glued two pieces of metal. They were c shaped, but square, so that each has a flat surface about two inches behind the board and i little behind the lens. They are steel. On each of his filters he glues two small flat magnets. Such that the filter simply magnetically sticks on behind the lens. No screws, no tape. They are fast to add or remove and can be stacked. Furthermore, there is no vignetting because they are much larger than the rearmost element on the lens.

    I can post some pictures later, but all my memory cards are full and my digital camera's batteries havnt been charged in a while.

    What a great idea. I put velcro buttons on the back of lensboards and velcro on my 4 x 4 filter frames.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?
