Kind of funny how things turn out – photographers are noted for stacking filters one atop another.
A common approach is stacking a polarizer upon an nd filter, and I’ve sometimes wondered why a company didn’t manufacture such a combination?
Turns out one has – there may be others I’m not aware of but the new kid on the filter block has done just that with an ND 16 and CPL.
You may not be familiar with Luzid filters but they are top of the line and seriously less expensive than those brands who are asking hundreds of dollars for a single filter.
I just came in possession of a copy – it’s threaded for a 77 mm lens but they and others make adapters that step down or up as you prefer.
Luzid uses only the finest Schott B270 Superwhite Glass with a brass knurled housing, extremely well made and thin – their adapters are also made with brass and knurled as well, which makes for a comfortable and confident experience.
In addition Luzid filters feature a 16 layer over and under coating that is scratch and water resistant – how good is that? And yes, that’s 16 layers.
If you use filters you would be doing yourself a service to check out the Luzid line and do a little comparison.
