GND filters

Hey everyone,

I recently purchased Canon EF-S 10-22mm and a B+W 10 stop ND filter. I'm thinking of getting some graduated ND filters as well. Since I'll be shooting at ultra wide angle, I don't have the option of stacking filters unless I get the more expensive slim versions. So my question is, if I use the Cokin Pro Z GND filter stacked on top of my B+W 10 stop ND filter, would I get vignetting? Also, what's the difference between Cokin P series and the Z series? I've heard that the Z series is built for UWA lenses.

Thank you.

Re: GND filters

I'm sure if you stack you'll get vignetting, but it probably won't be a deal-breaker. The P and Z series are different materials but I believe the X-pro is better than the Z for WA

Re: GND filters

The Z Series are larger - 100mm I believe. They are also of higher quality materials.

I don't know about the vignetting with your setup. Really depends on how with the lens is and how the filter holder sits.

Re: GND filters

You could use an alternative to graduated filters. Every filter placed in front of the lens potentially deteriorates quality (multiple filters increase the chances of flare considerably). Also Grads are heavy handed in that they do not just reduce the exposure of sky but also anything else above the skyline (trees, buildings). If you are using a 10 stop ND, then you are almost certainly into using a tripod so why not take multiple exposures then combine to achieve the effect you seek. This gives you more control and avoid the problems with filters.

I have the Canon EF-S 10-20mm though only now use it for my old 20D which was converted to IR. I cannot use the 10-20mm on a full frame which I use for most photography. It is an excellent lens which was one of my favourites and has excellent IR performance.

Re: GND filters

Thank you. I think taking multiple exposures is the best way to go as Dave mentioned. Here I combined two exposures
