I want to buy a Cokin P Series graduated ND filter from Singh Ray so I would like to know people's experiences with them on this forum. Obviously they are very costly so I would I am thinking I would like to buy one Galen Rowell and one Daryl Benson version. I am concerned about the harsh contrast of dark to light on some of the hard stopped ones. However, the soft edged ones might not be enough. What I am leaning towards is a 3 stop soft step Galen Rowell for $99 and then a Daryl Benson reverse 3 stop hard step for $120. Most pros swear by a two stop 0.6 but it seems very slight especially the soft step ones for the Galen Rowell versions. The Daryl Benson reverse filters are available in 1-4 Stops.
Early next year I will purchase a 77mm Vari ND filter from Singh Ray (I'm firm on this one),but have to wait because of the higher cost. As I get closer to finishing up my schooling I will have the funds available to get back into my true love again^^
Thanks, I am certain someone will be able to clear this right for me very fast particularly msmoto, Skintbrit, AdamZ or Witty Nickname, and many others I am sure. I really appreciate it :)
