    Hi guys/gals,

    Looking for a little info.

    I do lots of outdoor photography and I am thinking of getting an ND filter based on lots of recommendations that I have read on this site.

    I noticed that there are different kinds in terms of stops.

    What type of ND filter is everyone using? Is a x8 (3 stop) too dark generally?

    Please share your wisdom.

    Dave

    i have an x8 and it works better then everything else. i initially bought a x2 or 4 i dont remember but it was way too light. i think youll be happy with the x8 but i dont really know what locations your shooting, i have heard that ND graduated filters are very good also.

    An example of a x8 ND filter. I don't think you'll go wrong with it. I've seen pictures.... there is sunshine in Canada. :lol:
