thequintessentialman Posted May 14 Share Posted May 14 Had a box full of different effect filters I used with my old FE2 but never got any when I transitioned to digital. They were much too small so I gave them to a friend. There have been a few things I've wanted to do over the years but I just did without. Now I'm thinking of getting a polarizing filter and a neutral filter for my D800 lenses. The little bit of research I've done said NOT to get a linear polarizer for a digital, but to get a circular due to issues with the electronics.. Recall one of the cool things with my FE2 polarizer was it rotated; taking pictures of fish in water I could control how much glare I wanted in or out by rotating it. Will I be able to do that with the circular polarizer, the tutorial didn't mention anything like that. I'm considering a variable neutral density, what are the pros/cons of variable vs a set of fixed density? Any pitfalls or beginners' mistakes I need to be aware of? Had a bit of fun with those old filters though, got the starter kit at the BX, then some years later ran across a big box full at a yard sale. They were square and had a cradle that screwed into the end of the lens (forgot the brand name) but those old lens were tiny compared to the ones on the D800.
