as far as i can tell, yes. me and regenerationx and a couple others saw a train there firsthand while on a night wheeling trip. suffice to say that it was a VERY long night (as you can imagine with my pix in the lets go offroad thread) and we were never so afraid of distant headlight as we were that night!! :ohmy: :ohmy:

You can get cheap GND filters of eBay. The brand is Tian ya or something along those lines. You don't wanna get the screw in filters you want the cokin style ones. The only thing wrong with the cheap ebay ones is they can produce a magenta colour cast. Some people like this though, and it can make your images look different. If your feeling a little more rich, look for a brand called Hi-Tech. They are still on the cheaper end of the scale, but they don't colour cast your image any where near as bad as the dirt cheap ones. I was lucky enough to pick up a soft edge and a hard edge 6 stop set for $20 off a mate.


I wasnt fussed about the lens, but the idea of a kit which lets me use universal lens & filters on my P&S camera is pretty appealing. Next pay I'll pickup this kit, and look around for GND filters too.

Those are some nice shots. Whilst Dylan uses a D-SLR, you can get nice results with a point and shoot too. Its all I use :P cos I could justify the cost of a D-SLR for the small amount of shooting I do. I'm a particular fan of those swans, cos its kinda hard to get a good action shot like that.

Nice shot's Andrew!

Nothing wrong with Fuji Finepix cameras, I used to use one of those.

As Steve said, point and shoots are fine, as long as you know and work within the limitations of your equipmnt. (Kinda the same with audio aswell!)

Thanks, they were ones i had on photobucket already...yes im lazy :laugh:

Ahh, so my type of camera is a "point and shoot", didnt even know that :P

Andrew, your camera is actually a Bridge camera. As it has manual controls, but no optical view finder or interchangeable lens.

Thoughts on these ? cgi.ebay.ca/37mm-ND2...

These guys also do the GND on its own for $10.. Not sure if its worth while getting all those ND filters ? I'm sure that WB & EV adjustments have the same effect.. and the CPL is included in the lens adaption pack.
