    ND filters

    Just wondering on the quality of ND filters, I'm looking to buy one of ebay for my camera and i've heard good things about B+W filters, but i've seen this Heliopan one and i'm just wondering what makes it $30 more expensive? And is it worth the extra cash??

    Cheers

    My guess is the seller. Both B+W and Heliopan make excellent filters out of (I believe) the same type of glass and in brass mounts. I have some filters from both of those mfg's and have not noticed any differences in the pictures. Check the prices against say B&H and check out the ebay sellers.

    thanks for the reply, yeah i checked out BH and they also have the heliopans as $30 more, I decided just to go with the B+W one as all the reviews i've read online and on BH said great things.
    Cheers
