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! :-)
J.P. Stone: Really well done sir. I was shopping around, and you have made up my mind
chessfun: Would you get very similar results with an ND8 filter, or would it not be
good enough to slow the shot down.?
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?
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.
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
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
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?
GentleYeti: 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 Visuals: 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.
