ND110 Filter

Dear all,

Just started to use the screw in 67mm b&w ND110 filter , that I purchased yesterday. Taken some test shots earlier this evening in the back yard and all are showing some, I guess, flaring in the top left of the image. Exactly the same place everytime with short and long exposures. This is with or without the hood attached and I don't get the flaring if the filter is off the lens. Is this a problem with the filter (coating?) or something I'm doing wrong?

[Edit} Just checked through the test shots I made and it seems to kick in around f8 and gradually gets worse stopping down, getting as bad as in the photo around f16..

Many thanks,

Ian

Re: ND110 Filter

It looks like it could be the lens (reflected light between filter and lens?) as there's no distinct source for the flare - what happens if you've a "flared" shot which you then try in portrait? I'm betting it'll disappear

Re: ND110 Filter

Too late for that set up now, but you could try rotating the filter through 90 and 180 degrees by unscrewing it to see if the flare moves. If it does not, it can't be the filter.

Checking your lens for smears or specks is a good place to start. Presume no other filters in use with the ND110?

Re: ND110 Filter

That's nasty!
I'm with Mark, looks like more lens related to me. My 110 is absolutely fine with the Sigma 10-20 unless I've got the sun in or close to the edge of the frame. Even then it's nothing like as bad as this.

Re: ND110 Filter

Thanks very much guys.

Right, when shooting in portrait the 'flare" follows so appears in bottom left. Tried rotating the filter a half a turn and flare stayed in place. I don't have another lens the same filter size but held it over the front of a 50mm lens and the "flare" was almost negligible indicating a problem with the lens?

What I don't understand is why this is happening with a very small aperture as opposed to a very large one. Surely with more light coming in the problem would be worse?

I purchased the lens (Tamron 17-50mm f2.8) in conjunction with the ND 110 a couple of days ago from Warehouse Express, what's the chance of getting a replacement for my 10-20mm instead

Re: ND110 Filter

Response from Supplier:

Thank you for your e-mail. The B+W 110 ND filter is a new addition to the ND filter range, developed from industrial applications it is designed to capture extremely bright subjects with very short exposure times. Photographers are now using this filter over longer exposure times and some unusual problems are coming to light. With a long exposure time there is the possibility of internal reflection between the sensor lens and filter leading to the strange colour flaring you are seeing on your pictures. The only real solution to this is to work within the limits of the filter and stick to exposures below f8.

Re: ND110 Filter

pft. not particularly helpful.

I'd kick up stink and try really hard to get a refund.

Slightly off topic but if I had to buy one again I'd go for the 106. It's more practical and it's easy enough to stack exposures to give compound exposure times.

After the unhelpful reply from the supplier I would be very tempted to return either the filter or the lens (whichever you want) under the distance selling regs. Sure you'll have to stand the P&P costs but at least you'll be able to use what you keep.

Re: ND110 Filter

Are you sure he can Steve? I was gonna suggest that earlier but I thought the items had to be unused and unopened.
