FWIW I use a Hoya ND8, there hasn't been any issue for me.

I have a Tiffen variable ND and I have to say I've never seen that effect with mine and that includes cranking it down far enough to be able to shoot at f/2.8 around 11am in Arizona sunshine.

Funny! I thought of bushy black eyebrows, myself.

Our F-102s and F-101s had the mirrors inside the canopy.

Jay, if it's the one I sold you it's a Singh-Ray. They don't exhibit the X that some of the lesser variable NDs do. That's why they're so f-ing expensive! Best out there! Just be glad you didn't have to buy the 82mm!

Bought them because I had one on top of the clouds f/22 experience like Glenn's

I had a 6:30 wrap up of yesterday's assignment this morning. I hate getting up, but you have to love being able to head to the hangar at 8:30. Actually, I had one stop, the Social Security Administration, to sign up for mandatory Medicare. They were actually pretty efficient for a government operation. I only had to wait an hour, but I was entertained by a guy sitting next to me talking about going to formula 1 events around the world, and his new Corvette………uh, he was there applying for food stamp assistance, and the beat goes on.

Good news is my health insurance premium goes from a grand a month to $104.31 in April, plus a Blue Cross supplemental of a couple of hundred dollars. Bad news is, most of our Docs don't want to have anything to do with you if you're enrolled in Medicare. Glad we're healthy.

Oops.... Yeah, like I said Singh-Ray...

Well, my Heliopan was no bargain as it was somewhere around the same price as the Singh Ray, if I remember correctly. I had read that Singh Rays can exhibit the same effect, I guess it depends in part on the shooting conditions.

Extra-heavy parcels on that one, I guess!

Oops! Nikon D4s has a memory slot for QXD and CF cards, but it's just been announced that the QXD cards are on their way out. Someone isn't talking to someone.

Landing or doing a burnout dragster style....... Either way, nicely captured.

Went looking for the specs on the D4s but couldn't find them on Nikon's site yet, nor on B&H

Thanks Jim, It'll be interesting to see which of the new cards makes it as a standard, QXD or CFAST, or neither, with camera manufacturers settling on SD card format instead, for the reasons given in that article. It'll be interesting to see how right the rumor specs become.

Then again, there's this: http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1265138/4#12053746

Wonder why the redesign?
