    I bought a 6 stop ND filter a few months ago, and finally had a decent chance to use it. A couple of these are HDR too

    Oh that’s nice. Good stuff. I think that’ll be my next investment.

    Awesome stuff. I have a 4x that’s been sitting on a shelf for over a year now and has yet to be christened.

    Thanks!

    Oh, one lesson learned – keep the light out of your viewfinder! With a 6 stop ND on the front, the stray daylight coming in from the eyepiece can play havoc on your metering. I thought my camera might be going nuts until I worked out what was going on….

    my old minolta XD-11 had an internal shutter you could close for that.

    Yup, my D700 has one as well. Completely forgot about it at first though… The cheaper Nikons come with a separate plastic cover instead.

    thanks for reminding me. mine was still in the original box. now it’s in my camera bag.

    of course if i did like i did today and just take the camera/lens and leave the bag home that won’t help. it didn’t help today when i ran out of battery before running out of subjects.
