At the weekend I had a brief opportunity to visit the beach at Ashaig on the Isle of Skye. I wanted to try out my 10 stop Zomei HD Schott Glass ND1000 filter to see how it worked in terms of colour distortion. This is a relatively recent acquisition, having previously relied on a cheap circular variable ND filter, with poor results, with images showing a dstinct magenta colour cast. I have to say that I was very pleased with the results from this filter, with no colour cast to speak of, and clear images. I tried combining the filter with the same make of ND grad filter to darken the sky a bit, but the effect was that all the dust on the lens surface caused lots of magenta aberrations. I need to learn to clean my camera kit more often. Anyway, the result was good from the filter perspective and I look forward to using it more in the future.
