    Does does an additional IR filter have to be used for the higher f-stops?

    They're okay to me up to the 100 without an additional IR filter, I got it for when the NDs are off/to just have on at all times.

    Ok, here's a down and dirty test of a few filters and then stacking a couple just for sharpness. I'll get around to a better one using the Sigma 18-35 when I get a step up ring and I'm felling under the weather.

    1st: ND8
    2nd:ND16
    3rd:ND32
    4th:ND4+8
    5th:No ND

    Best place to look is the little split, dead center of the screen as that's always in focus as we open up. Also have no idea why all the images are different sizes. They are the exact same. Oh well.

    Thanks Vic,

    One area you want to look at when stacking's bokeh, as any inherent traits of the filters will "double-up" so to speak.

    Otherwise, stacking looks legal so far.

    Here's some quick frames from the Pocket - i didn't just test this camera and all that will come soon but realistically after xmas as there's quite abit involved. I thought i would just share these for anyone trying to make a decision now. No colour adjustments made, i did make a few exposure adjustments here and there but what was really interesting is that it seemed like the Tiffens weren't even that accurate in how much "stops" were being reduced.

    I will attempt to colour correct all these at a later date and can upload clips later if people want then too, but i apologize that some clips aren't quite as nailed focus wise as others as we were in the blazing sun for 2 hours straight and i was swapping the same lens across multiply cameras and trying to keep everything straight with notes etc. And my poor GF just stood there the whole time taking a beating from the sun!

    This was all shot RAW.

    Anyway, hopefully its clear from the images what is what (click for larger) and you can make your own judgements - although i quickly pointed out stuff that surprised me:

    -----

    No ND (i think it could do with IR cut !!! ):



    Hoya PRONDs (with and without Hoya IR CUT)

























    TIFFEN











    Tiffen 1.2ND (no built-in IR CUT) 4X4 with Hoya IR CUT -- Better than Tiffen 1.2IRND ??





    Tiffen Vari ND at various amounts:

    Oh gahd the Tiffens LOL

    Going to the top of the thread. Major thanks for taking the time, Hook. Can't wait to check out your other tests. =DDD

    Edit: Hoya IR Cut's looking like a good addition with or without on the NDs. Glad I picked one of em up. Might have to do a second

    Wow I just realized you did a 16+4+Hoya IR Cut -- Seems the stacking and IR Cut completely shuts down IR.
