    Was out working today and had a drive through the mountains and stopped to get a few shots. Its was very hazy with humidity. Was wondering if any of the camera filters would help with this. Check out the video and see what you think. Any recommendations?

    I'm not sure it can be satisfactorily helped no matter what, but when I ran into those conditions recently I had an ND 8 on and it didn't help. Maybe an ND 16. One thing I can say is a reminder to keep your lens really clean. Lenses get hazy and spotty with grease and dirt and even water spots. A lens in that condition makes the problem of hazy atmospheric conditions look even worse. Look closely at them and keep them clean.

    ND filters wont help at all. A polarizing filter may help
