    I was thinking about ordering a GND setup this evening before I go on vacation next week.

    I was going to go with Cokin P-Series Wide Angle Holder, with 2 Hi-Tech Filters one .6 soft and one .9 hard for when I shoot by the lake.

    Anything else I'm forgetting? Besides the adapter rings of course.

    I really think the hard ones are pretty useless, even with a totally flat horizon. I'd rather have to correct a slight over exposure than burn out a giant underexposed chunk.

    Even with perfectly flat horizon lines? I was questioning myself whether I shoot enough shots like that to justify even having one.

    Well, I just meant that in practice there's rarely, if ever, a perfectly flat horizon, so what else are you gonna use a hard GND filter for?
