B+W ND Filters

Postby Reschsmooth on Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:16 pm

I am looking to get into long exposure work, and am itching (not literally) to do so with the Bronica on B&W film. The conundrum is that most of my Nikon lenses are 77mm and the Bronica is, I think, 62 mm. I would prefer to buy just once, so I ask: is it possible to get step-up filter holders for screw in filters that can allow the 77mm filters to then fit on the 62mm mount?

Step up filter adaptors are readily available off eBay.

Cameron, do you know if the 30% discount code is still available? Don't worry - saw the original thread and offer closed 17 December.

Generally, how important is filter quality with B&W film? That is, would, say, a Hoya 25a red filter work as well as a more expensive B+W red filter?

and I use a 67 to 77 with no problems (I actually bought a set of rings for practically nothing - that included the normal incremental steps - e.g. from memory something like 55 to 62, 62 to 67, 67 to 72, 72 to 77 and 77 to 82 (and maybe others) plus since I have mostly 67 and 77mm lenses I got a few 67 to 77's
