How about a thread sharing ND filter tips and photos?

Recommended Posts

I dont know if this is the correct forum, but I wanted to share and learn using ND filters on digital M's. Please feel free to contribute:

Learnings so far:

+ "A" works ok.
+ I use a 67mm ND11 with step down rings for different lenses.
+ The effect is pleasing (at least for me)

- I get some strange flares on 90/4 macro, and sometimes on 50/2. Havent found the cause, but suspect light leakage in lens.
- The WATE filter adapter seems to have some strange threads, not compatible with other lenses?
 - If I use the WATE filter adapter on WATE I have to mask the small window in adapter to avoid flares due to ligh coming from behind the lens.

Here is a test with Hoya ND11 (-11 EV) on a 35/1,4 FLE on a M240 (aprox 16 seconds?). In heavy snowing:

Hello Alf,


Nice photo.


Which aperture did you use?


Nice idea for a Thread, also.


Best Regards,





16s, f/8, 200ISO.


Sorry for late answer.

Abandones house with ND11. 60s, f/5.6. ISO 200. The long exposure flattened the sea and allowed me to mask the upper part for 45s awoiding burn-out of the white montains.

      Hi all
      In the past I used my M10 for exposures up to 120 seconds. Now I can’t find how to do it!! It’s really frustrating as I am on a trip where I need to shoot some dawn shots on a tripod with long exposure. I also have my Q2 with me so I used that today by selecting the 1+ option on the shutter speed dial.
      Please make replies really clear. Eg someone suggested using the ‘front button’ combined with Bulb mode. I could not find  way through make that work. Please post a screen shot if there is any doubt.
      Much appreciated.

      Hi all,
      I recently hit on a Summicron 50mm and bought it. Now I need a ND filter, preferably a variable one, as I'll be shooting open.
      Could you recommend me one ? I live in Europe and would appreciate if you can also tell me where I can buy it. Sometimes it's hard to find a certain model.
      Thanks and wish you all a good weekend.

      I would like to purchase some filters for the M10 + Summilux 35 FLE, and I am not sure which are the best in terms of ease of use (screw on with hood, stacking, vignetting).
      I am about to order these:

      I just updated my Noctilux article with a test of the new 60mm Leica ND-filter 4-stop (16X) which is a little more blue than the B+W. 
      Scroll down the page a bit to get to the part.
      I've written up a little bit about accuracy of ND filters in general (as to colors and density).
