3 Stop ND Filters Compared - $5 to $180

Featured Monday, 28 January 2019 21:41

Huge range in sharpness, color and vignetting on these 3 stop filters...

 In this video I compare 9 filters, with a range of prices from $10 to $360 - with a HUGE variation in build quality, color cast, sharpness and vignetting - it is worth seeing some real world results before buying anything.

Thanks to B&H Photo for loaning me most of these to test. In USA please check their links. For those outside USA I include WorldWide Amazon links too (geni.us)
