| p.1 #1 · Samyang/Rokinon 14mm DIY Filter Holder |
In a couple weeks, I will be taking a trip up to Oregon where I will be mainly shooting streams creeks and waterfalls. My lens of choice will be the 14mm, although I will have a 35mm and 85mm. The 14mm poses a problem, since it can't accept conventional filters. The 35mm and 85mm, if used, will have a VND.
I looked online and the options available for this style of lens are IMO ridiculously overpriced.

I realize that some of these are not specifically designed for the 14mm, but with some minor work I suppose they could be fitted to the Samyang.
What I've made only cost me about $25, and I'll admit what I've saved in cost I probably lost with convenience. I don't plan on using ND's with this lens very often, so that was my justification on making my own.
Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or ideas. I plan on making a version 2 of this in the future.
