So I'm loading up on filters because I suddenly realize that I need them. :mrgreen: I bought two Promaster filters today at the local camera shop. One Circular Polarizer and one UV (just to protect the glass as usual). I'm looking at a graduated ND filter and the woman at the camera shop (this is not a hack shop btw) suggested I also look on ebay because they sell new ones for cheap. So I poked around at B&H and I poked around on ebay. I've seen ones like this on ebay, but it doesn't indicate what "level" it is... .3/.6/.9, etc. I'm also worried about it coming from China and being 1/10th of the cost of the ones I see on B&H. What should I be looking for here? What should I avoid? I'd prefer not to spend an astronomical amount of money, but I don't want to buy a piece of garbage either. I'm also starting to wonder if I bought "bad" filters when I got the promaster ones today... the lady did have one polarizing filter that was $189... I bought the UV and the circ. polarizer I got for a grand total of $125. I know money isn't a measure of quality, per se... I guess the key is that I just realized I didn't really research this and so I don't totally know what I bought or what I should be buying. I -assume- the ones I have will at least be decently functional since this is a very reputable shop in the area and they weren't $10 :lmao:, but... Please let me know your thoughts? Give it to me straight. I can take it. Thanks, all!
