| p.4 #1 · Fotodiox introduces two WonderPana Filter Systems |
A quick question to those who have this system...I purchased it for friends in Thailand and am not using it myself, so I need your expertise for a moment:
The 3 stop ND filter I received has very noticeable scratches at the very top of the filter - from cutting the filter to size (best guess); and then on the body of the filter, there are minor scratches/imperfections here and there...is this something to worry about on a 3 stop ND? In other words, will it affect image quality?
Advice appreciated - Thanks!
OK I learned from Fotodiox (via Karrin who was quite prompt, kind and courteous in answering my question) that the rectangular filters such as the NDs and the Graduated NDs, come with a clear laminate covering both sides of the filter - and that laminate may looked scuff or peel slightly apart from the filter itself - making appear as though the filter has been scratched or otherwise damaged...It (the filter) is not...it is the laminate that has the problems. Once it is peeled away, the filter looks brand new.
By comparison, they do not use a laminate on the polarizer - that must look perfect as is...
Hope this helps for anyone receiving the filter system.
