I hear ya... But I'd rather shoot for final image in the field and use Lightroom to tweak later. I came from a film background (B&W mostly) and we had to work entirely inside the camera. It's better and more efficient that way.
I'm looking at all sorts of filters like grads, NDs, polarizer, maybe a ProMist. My reason for the square filter kit is to keep from carrying lots of filters for my different sized lenses. Right now, I'm having to carry a bunch of filters and its a real pain, besides, they take up some of that precious...Show more →
I understand. I came from film too - about 15 years worth, so I totally get what you mean by getting it right in the camera. However, digital sometimes allows you to get a better final image than you can get with strictly in-camera techniques (for example, blending helps to avoid things like dark tree tops with split NDs).
Other than straight ND or polarization, I can duplicate the effect of any other filter in PS - and if I don't like the image after a few months, I can go back and change it. Plus, there are a ton of different "filter" program plug ins available too that are likely cheaper than a nice set of Cokin filters. (Nik Color Efex, Topaz, OnOne to name a few.) Just my 2 cents and some food for thought.
In any case, I know everyone has a different style of shooting, and I know that some people don't like messing around with post processing (heck, some days I don't like it much either ). I just wanted to point out an alternative.
