Keep it off the zoom and don't stack.
on August 25, 2013
I recently shot a video for a non-profit using these filters. I thought they would just work with out issues, however I was wrong. The filters were not made without imperfection as the image started to diffuse when I stacked the NDs on. Also at high zoom levels the imperfections are magnified. This completely ruined a few of my shots. However thankfully, there was enough coverage that I think we will be alright. Also if you have a nicer lens (say a Canon L series), do yourself a favor and get yourself nicer ND filters. That being said, on wider angles and with only one filter on, these will do the job for most purposes.
In all the lessons I learned.
- Don't stack cheap filters, as it will dirty the image
- Don't use cheap filters on high zooms. (>100mm would be my call)
- Don't use with really sharp lenses.
