Fader ND filters

With the number of shots showing long exposure daylight shots using NDs, I'm tempted to go for one - initially for the G11 but as it takes 72mm filters I could also use it with the 7D!

Was thinking of the Faders that give variable 2-8 stops as most of my pics would be 2-4 (the occasional waterfall as most aren't suitable - and some streams/rivers) with occasional 8 stop use (the sea). Anyone tried a Fader filter and if so, any good? Light Craft Workshop

Re: Fader ND filters

I had thought about this too though I need a 77mm. I do not expect to use a ND filter very often so did not want to spend too much. On the other hand there is no point using a filter which spoils the shot either. I saw some praise and some criticism of faders so decided to just buy a 6 stop B+W glass ND filter. I ordered it yesterday. At around £80, it is still a lot to spend on an item I may only use once a year.

Re: Fader ND filters

My thinking exactly - also the same price but it would be variable from 2-8 stops!
