B+W 10Stop ND

Got myself one of those 10 stop ND’s to have a play with. You get some interesting results, with some really warm tones being added to the images, and also a fair bit of vignetting at the wide end of the zoom. But more importantly the ability toget long exposures in the middle of the day.

These pics were taken on a quick trip to Cape Arid National Park. These places around Esperance are amazing, the hard white sandy beaches and the azure coloured waters, just a pity about the wind this time of year. All in all you just need time to explore these amazing places.

These pics were taken with the D3 and 24-70 f2.8, with the B+W 10stop ND. I was able to get 8 sec exposures at 2 o’clock in the arvo.

  1. Great work Jamie! Yes I need on of those ND filters!

    Cheers mate


  2. Certainly gives a different effect to the photos shooting with the 10 stop filter in the middle of the day. looks a bit surreal when your used to seeing milky water in darker light. What brand have you got and is it adjustable ?
    Cheers Pete.

  3. Hey Pete, Yeah it does give a different feel, it’s the first time I’ve tried it so a little bit different. These are jpegs straight out of the camera, be interesting to play with the white balance on a raw file.
    It’s a B+W, I think they also do a 20 stop as well…..usually you have to take the filter off to compose and focus because you can’t see through it, but I did open the aperture wide open and used live view, it worked. The camera also struggled with the metering so it was a bit of a guessing game at first. You also get vignetting at the wideangle end. Hope tat helps.
