New HOYA ND filter cine set for a very special price


Recommended Posts

Recently I purchased the BMPCC, this is my first post in this part of the forum.

I have been following a thread at bmcuser.com about a new nd filter set from HOYA. The tests shows its one of the best nd filter sets at that price point.




Here is the order page:



Unfortunately for me I live in Sweden and the deal isn’t available outside the US. I have tried buying the set but its not possible for them to ship.


Could anyone, that live in the US help a fellow bmpcc user out?

I would sincerly appreciate your help. The deal ends December 31. I will pay for everything, that includes the item getting to your door and then the shipping costs to Sweden.

These filters may be top quality, but cost too much for my taste. What is more: They don't help at all (see below)!


The reasoning is this: I know that an ND fader is not as good as a set of fixed NDs, but the slight cast that a *cheaper* set might introduce can be easily removed in post, given that you color correct every shot anyway.


There is another issue with colors with our oh-so-affordable Pocket: IR contamination. Didn't you notice lights at 3200°K had a magenta cast? And blacks a muddy brown with other flavours?


Read this.


My conclusion (so far): It's not the ND itself that has the wrong color, it just doesn't block (and so attenuates) infrared light. There should be an ND fader with IR-blocker (or a set of combined ND+IR), optimized for the Pocket, so that one didn't have to stack filters. For this I would happily pay 500 € or more, but not for a set like that. 


EDIT: Well, there is (even with 700nm specs, close to BMs 680nm recommendation). I'd prefer 72mm though. 

EDIT2: Even cheaper.
