Best ND filters to get in UK

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Aright guys so im in UK till end of the year. I need to buy two things: A tripod(already asked in a separate thread and almost decided which to buy!!) and ND filters. They have those Square shaped Cokin ND filters but i read that they impart a sepia tint to the images. My camera is a Nikon D700 and the lenses i have are Nikkor 1.4G 50mm, Nikkor 24-70mm and Nikkor 80-200mm. What would be:
1. Absolute best ND filter set to buy?
2. Best bang for buck?

I'll get 1 if I earn some cash working here or 2 if I have to buy from my current budget! I'd appreciate your help. Thanks!

If you can find some Hoya's they will work well and not break the bank. Do the screw on type. The Hoya ND400 is a 9 stop and I got one that works pretty well. Also B+W are really good.

personally i would recommend against ring type ND filters (especially grads) since its so much easier to move filters around. but if you do get a ring ND get the 77mm then use step down rings. this way you just buy one 77mm and you can use it with all your lenses (unless you have some 77mm+ or soemthing)

cokin, lee or hitech all make good 4x4 filters
