Polarizing filter question
Posted By ukbluetooth
Replies: 1
Views: 2,437
I am looking for a circular polariser for a Tamrom 18-250mm (f3.5-6.3) lens . I know very little about filters in terms of quality but I assume that Hoya are OK so I have been looking for a 62mm Hoya circular polarizing filter.

The price range is huge from about 20 to 100 (in dollars thats about $32 to $160)

I assume there is a considerable difference in quality between these prices

What's the difference and which one would be appropriate to this mid-price travelling lens?

Is Hoya a good choice?

One thing you did not mention rburgoss - That magical feeling watching the photographic paper slowly darken in the developing tray. Having to fix it, then start to wash it before turning on the main light - the anticipation....

Beats chimping the LCD and downloading onto a computer anyday.

But then what you loose with the roundabouts ....

I would just like to point out that they are curently developing a DSLR version which will be released in due course. I will certainly be interested in obtaining one (depending on price)

There - attach a nice long lens, point it at that beautiful landscape, press that button, relax and crack open that bottle of wine before the ice melts. OK - not Adams but then all photographic endeavour does not need to be high art. :cool:

Sorry fellows but I really don't understand why you are being so mean.

Perhaps I am gullible but I think that some of those shots are nothing sort of amazing.

My favourite is the night time shot of London - 34 shots stitched together.

gigapan: South Bank over looking the River Thames, Big Ben, London Eye

And the one of Boston gigapan: Boston BackBay Charles river is just so much fun. For a few hundred dollars this must be a fantastic toy/tool.

I would doubt very much that is is a scam, after all it is endorsed by Carnegie Mellon University, NASA, Google, and National Geographic. I challenge anyone here to but together a 200 shot panoramic without this kit or a similar system.

JMHO.
