Did this video help you?

simon44: Ive just bought the Hoya ND500 and I find its not dark enough. Before I send it back can I ask why I would rather keep this over an ND1000 version? Thank you. 

Donovan80898: Did you just screw the filter on to the lens?

Jim Breeds: Even more impressive is that the filter also added in the warning post at the end of the groyne in the first photo that isn't to be seen in the setting up footage at the start of the video! :-)

chessfun: Would you get very similar results with an ND8 filter, or would it not be good enough to slow the shot down.?

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

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

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?

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.

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

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.

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

Kandi Klover: I love the ND filters, I got one of these 9 stoppers for super wide aperture video :3

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

Launceston CC: It is a nine stop ND filter, thus reducing the available light down by about 400-500 times. Thats why you cant see crap! haha make sure you frame and focus your image before you put the filter on :P

Richard Rykard: Okay I've been reading some mixed ideas on WB and RAW capture. In the video gavin announces that WB is set to daylight, but, does that play a huge part when in RAW? Does the WB setting even register since the WB can be haggled over in the processing stage?

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.

Kholio Man: Watch out you don't die from wet feet syndrome

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

Spencer Warren: is this the ND x400?

Spencer Warren: wondering the same thing!

Diligo Europa: Good video. One day the white race will wake up. Anti whites despise us. They call it racist when we want to do what's good for our people.
Jean AArouet: Gee my criticism of his almost total lack of safety was removed...well you may as well say a total lack of safety precaution  so people looking at "experts" could remain misguided by '40 years experience'. 40 minutes more like it. If you own or hope to own or use a chainsaw don't look at this performance....even when his prescription glasses fall down he continues with even less protection than the one item he had....if you call prescription spectacles 'safe' from chips and any flying debris...The Jonsareds isn't running correctly and I doubt the chain is sharp looking at what I can see ....I guess the Husqvarna was intended to 'show-up' the Jonsareds for some reason or maybe he simply found it 'off tune' and 'a little blunt' . The Jonsareds is at least as good a saw as the Husqvarna, many say better. Unfortunately Jonsareds is now poorly serviced for parts but I'd have either saw for quality and if I liked the older metal saws and looked after it well rather than drive it into the ground with poor techniques and lack of cleaning I'd take the Jonsareds.
Ola Grace: we have to do the mile in school twice a year and i walked it and got a 13:53 and now my bitchy PE teacher hates me... oops
MetallicBill: ZOOM VIDEO is supported on the upper PCMCIA card slot I believe, and you neglected to mention a one wire WIFI miniPC card slot is also found on this model, it resides in the front chassis near the right speaker up front! Strange there's only one connector, no AUX I presume. Two module batteries are permitted while using the 'fixed' optical drive, which is DVD ROM CD RW type, easily upgraded with a standard IDE burner
TankiGaming: There will be better sales on christmas and new year so you should think about saving some crystals . I think you should just get m1 twins for now because they're overpowered and save the rest for the winter holydays.
