Re: B&W 110 filter?

Hi,

I posted this a little while ago regarding the procedure I used on one of my long exposures. Hope it helps in some way..

Just to give a bit more info regarding the shot. Initially the camera is set to Aperture Priority set to f/32. I compose the shot as required and using autofocus focus on a spot around a third of the way into the frame. This will ensure sharpness from front to back. (You could get all technical here and look into hyperfocal distances etc but the method I mentioned works fine for me). I then make a note of the exposure settings, ie, at f/32 I get a shutter speed of 1/30th. Once the focus is locked I then switch the camera to Manual focus so that lens doesn't hunt when the shutter is pressed. I then switch the exposure mode from Aperture Priority to Manual. On manual mode I then select "Bulb". From experience I know that when I add the ND110 filter (10stop) f/32 at 1/30th will give me a new shutter speed of around 30secs, but I always shoot a few shots either side of this as it's not an exact science. (I have posted a link previously to the ND110 chart but here it is again - http://www.bwvision.com/wp-content/u...09/chart-2.JPG) I recheck composition then add the filter. I also add the blanking plate to the eyepiece to reduce any light entering the viewfinder. Note that I say reduce, the blanking plate doesn't stop all light entering the viewfinder so to assist this I use a black beanie to place over the back of the camera covering the eyepiece aswell. I have found that above f8 I get lens flare due to the gap between the filter and the lens so a combo of the blanking plate and the beanie stops all light entering the viewfinder. Sounds weird I know but trust me it works :-)

When taking the shot use either the camera's self timer to reduce shake when the shutter fires or if you are in bulb mode use a remote release.

If you have a smartphone there's a free app I use called LongTime Exposure. Works it out for you in a jiffy

Also - in practice I find my B+W 10-stop is actually more like 12 stops
