Did this video help you?

J.P. Stone: Really well done sir. I was shopping around, and you have made up my mind for me.

Andrew Bryan: How I wished I'd seen this review before I bought a Tiffen version. This had an awful red colour cast and although the company was very helpful with advice it had to go back. Having watched this now three year old presentation I bought a Hoya ND400 and it is brilliant. Virtually no colour shift and not a trace of casting. Thank you Gavin. Can you give me a tip for getting sea spray off your filter without damaging it?

Mohamed LMISSAOUI: Hello, i have a question. what can the ND400 offer that we can't do in photoshop or lightroom ?

YoonNyeanLiew: Thank you Gavin for sharing and also to Crookedimaging. I now understand how it works. I gonna get one. Cheers

p4big13: I hope you can help me. I recently purchased an ND400 at Adorama after seeing your youtube video. But a red color keeps on appearing in the middle of my image.

J0hnCl0sed: guys what should i buy (nd filter ) with 60 bucks!?

teknoplayer: @rvdw98 Well, Hoya is one of the best filter producers out there.

Ray mondo: How would I set my exposure when using this filter? I have a D7000. Thanks and great vid.

Rockadell: Thanks, thanks, THANKS!

craig fellowes: some photographers need to risk their lifes... that includes getting your feet wet

doug94550: I just received my Hoya ND400. I will be shooting the Annular Solar Eclipse tomorrow, May 20th. Thanks for the video and heads up for what I can expect. Going out now for test shots before the big event.

Lamar Pi: I have a hoya 8 stop, but what settings do I put the camera at?

batmanlooksgood: they tend to be very dark, so it would be best to focus before slapping on the filter.

Richard Bradbury: @jnskyliner34 ndgrad filters are great but best waiting till you pick up the 10-22 as the lens barrel will rotate during focusing on the 18-55.. bit of a pain.

Shabeeb Rizvi: Is this same as Hoya NDx400 ???

Spencer Warren: is this the ND x400?

Stan Ferns: heard very bad reviews about hoya ND filters. is this true ?

Lee Cant: Was this shot with your 40D - What lens was used, thanks :P

Doc Brown: I am using prime lenses, love them, have one 50mm, a 35mm on order, and will most likely get an 85mm in a few months. But now a bit bummed by having to work out what filters to get... as they all use different filter threads. Is there any easy solution for this? Not going back to zooms. I'm thinking I'll only get one red filter and one ND filter. Don't want to be carrying around that many with me either, so perhaps only two filters -but for the 35 or 50mm? :-S Arrggghh

Ray mondo: @goldenguy12345 It is the same as Gavin has but a different filter size.

Darren Breckles: Solution: Buy one of each filter needed for the largest diameter prime lens you own then buy a set of step down rings from Amazon ( or possibly just the few step down rings you need). Primes should be fairly close in size.

mrsandyq: I think if you are shooing aperture mode, the shutter speed will change when you place the filter on - because it will "see" the scene has gotten much darker. I can't wait to get one of these filters!

BDS: I've bought the same filter and i'm quite curious about the results, thanks for the video so far :)

Spencer Warren: wondering the same thing!

Eric Wilkinson: I am comparing this filter with the B&W #110, a ten stop filter that is, unimportantly (mostly) and unexpectantly, a bit cheaper. Hoya or B&W?

TheMugfaker: Can anyone give me some advice? I use a ND filter for photography and I am able to set the white balance in post if it needs changing. For video, do I need to set white balance before the filter is placed on, or after it is on?

R. Failoni: Gavin is shooting in "Live View", this is why you see it on his lcd. I do not think that you need to cover the eyepiece because in live view the mirror flips up. i could be wrong but i do not cover mine.

Robert Madsen: I just bought a filter that i thougt was 8 stops.... Hoya HMC 67mm ND X8... but only 3 stops... Im new Haha... can someone send a pm or something to a filter 8-10 stops? From hoya? 67mm? Decent price

ernixy: tnx joshua!

IntegraPhotographics: Hi Gavin, great video as are all of your others! I have learnt a lot from you :-) I'm just wondering which hoya ND filter you would recommend for Sunrise Seascapes. And is stacking a Circular Polariser on the ND filter Ok ?

Klassic Reel Entertainment: The Hoya 9 stop N.D. works amazing. and, was very affordable.

Fanko =3: @pjos111 some good cameras allow exposures that's longer than 30, but most have the BULB exposure for a longer exposure. It's better to use Manual to test things out, cuz sometimes the camera lies to you. :)

David Portwain: Thats all very well but no one seems to stock them! Where can I buy an 82mm ND400 ? David

Adam Cao: vignetting depends on the sensor size too, what you didnt mention is if it's APSC or 35mm format

Anthony Castelli: @tardis1996 If I remember correctly, adobe allows Education discounts. When I was Home Schooled, I bought CS3 for I think $200.00. CS5 might be a bit more. Of course their are illegal ways, but I won't mention those here. If you need help finding the Education page, I can help.

gavtrain: @rvdw98 Lol, It's been dunked in the drink on more then one occassion, but just keeps on working! It must be magic :-)

UnderlinedDesigns: The price of this filter is sickening :@

mindwaveESEA: @gavtrain on lightroom, there is also a straighten tool, click the crop square, then click the ruler. it's basically the same as CS5.

Kashyyyk Kamino: Hello Gav nice video, may i ask you an advice? i just got the gopro hero 3 and im curious to use some filters including the HOYA ND400, but i really dont know much about it, i just would like to experiment, do you know if this filter would make kind of the same effect like in your photos with the gopro hero3? regards.

scanking: Gavin when I put the filter on it only gives me about 2 seconds even on an overcast day????? Very underexposed images....Any suggestions?

Dave McHale: Haha just passing through to see how these filters work and just thought to let you know you have a radio voice lol totally random

Channel4ize: GAV THE MAN...PLEASE BANG MY GRAN ...OH YEAH

Samuel Cabral: Nice video! But what intensity of ND filter do you recommend to shoot raw videos on a sunny day? A ND 16 is enough? Thanks a lot! Cheers from Brazil!

Paredolia Cinema: 1:21 - 1:30 "I dont want any deterioration of the image by having multiple filters stacked on top of each other - thats always a bad idea"

Chiel Epskamp: Also the colors are more saturated when using a pola...works the best with a lot of daylight/sun

SebvanAstian: hey...i just got the HOYA variable density 3-400 filter. but do you know how i can calculate my "new" (with filter) shutter speed. the problem is that i never no how many stops i'm using :/..... what can i do?

Launceston CC: With raw, you can easily change white balance properties without risking any change in the images quality or sharpness, all that extra data captured whilst shooting with raw is used. In a jpeg that data is discarded. So changing WB in jpegs is trouble in the making. And of course the WB setting registers, it always is used in every exposure you use

mrsandyq: LOVE THIS... Can't wait to get one!

Lara Lee: a polarizing filter reduces reflection on non-metallic surfaces.

John Smith: I would recommend you a ND-Fader like a Neewer ND-Filter (Adjustable)

bailey denyer: See, The Problem In the UK with Bullying is that if you get in a fight who's family is on Benefits, ( Basically for all you Americans that don't know, In the UK If you are a British Citizen and You have a Child and Don't work; You get a free house, Tax credits ETC) You've already lost. The schools are so Bias towards These Kids that they don't get in trouble. I'm a Natural Rugby player , been playing since I was 6 and I got in a fight in PE with this other kid. He Punches me in the Face 9 times, So i Kick him in the stomachs with my Rugby Boots, then kick him whilst he was on the floor. Teacher saw the whole thing. He started it Didn't get the Blame for anything, I got a Weeks worth of after school detentions and kicked of the Team for the rest of the season. Now this is how freaked up the system is.

ExJetCityWoman: A GREAT idea and great campaign. I'm so glad that these spots were created as a lot of people could really benefit from seeing them. People fear what they don't know. Why let *some* people - whether they're church or government "leaders" - manipulate you into fearing others? THESE are our fellow Americans.
