    I reviewed as many articles and videos as possible in deciding on which system to invest in. Your review was very informative and I just bought the Progrey G150Z system for my 14-24mm/24-70mm lens! Can’t wait to see the results for my self. Thanks to Lynn on the GREAT customerservice in deciding on filters and answering my questions!

    Thank you for filter review, I was using Nisi 10 stop before but just broken. Then was looking for new one.
    If there is better filter. Your review helped me a lot. Thanks again.

    Very helpful article here Josh! I may have missed it but are these all circular ND filters or a mixture of both circular and squares?

    Hi,
    I really enjoyed reading this review, i am definitely interested in the Progrey setup now. It would have been interesting to see how the newest Lee big stopper would do. When are you planning on doing the second part with the 6 stop/ 7 stop filters?

      Glad you enjoyed the review, Richard. The 6/7 stop filter section, as well as the filter holder review, is going to have to wait for now. Hustling to get a bunch of projects wrapped up before I head to New Zealand in March.

      Cheers,

      Josh

        Hi Josh,

        Thanks for the great filter review. Are you still looking at doing the 6-stop and filter holder segments?

        Best,

          Aye carumba, thanks for the reminder! This had completely slipped my mind. I actually just got another filter kit from Haida so I have even more to compare. I’ll try to jot some pros and cons down soon about each of the holders. Cheers.

            Hi,
            I’m still looking forward to the 2nd part to this review, any chance yet? As you’ve updated your website I don’t know if you’ve done the review already and I can’t find it, if you have do you mind posting the link?
            Thanks again

            Hey Richard,

            Good question. To be honest, I’ve been avoiding writing part two because I have yet to find a filter holder that’s perfect. They’re all good, but they also all have flaws. Here’s my very quick summary:
            – If you use a polarizer with your filter holder most or all of the time, go with the Nisi holder. It’s very high quality and fairly easy to use. But it’s a pain to remove the polarizer if you don’t want to use it.
            – If you never use a polarizer then I’d recommend Progrey because it’s the simplest and cheapest.
            – If you are constantly taking your polarizer out and putting it back in, then I recommend Haida’s holder. They have by far the easiest system for removing and adding a polarizer through an interesting cartridge system. But there are a few extra pieces to keep track of because of that.

            Hope that helps!

            Josh

    I went for the Nisi filter system. Performance is great. What REALLY sold me is the way the circular polarizer functions in the holder…

    Hi Josh, I really liked your effort to compare 10x ND filters and a guidance to decide which one to go for. I really appreciate once again but what do you say about the very popular and sought after The More Slow 10x ND Singh-Ray filter. It’s a very well used filter among most of American top Pro photographers. Is it posible for you to rate this filter at some point? Kind regards.

    Hi Joshua,
    Just curious as to why you did not evaluate Breakthrough’s X4 ND 10 stop square filter. They make a 100mm square and a 150mm square in I believe 3, 6,10 & 15 stops for the 100mm version and 3, 6 & 10 stops for the 150mm version.

    I have the 3 and 6 stops 100mm square and are very happy with them.

    Keep up the good work. Love your blog and videos.

    Great article Josh, this is so comprehensive! I used to have the Lee (but it shattered) and I probably would have bought it again had I not read this. On the whole Lee glass breaking issue, what are NiSi, Progrey and Breakthrough made of?

      Hey Chad,

      Glad you enjoyed it. Bummer about the Lee but at least it’s an opportunity to invest in a better-performing filter. The other filters are all glass as well, so all shatter-prone if you drop them.

      Cheers,

      Josh
