    I have bought set of 4 ND filters, no polarized, but polarized is used to clean reflections from objects. It is like your glasses. And payment method is PAYPALL. Shipping is free and it should take 2-5 days. I will let you know.

    Just ordered these aswell.
    The lenses are stuck on with sticky tape. Could be interesting.

    I`ll wait for you guys to evaluate your purchase, but the price is very attractive.

    Does it require counterweight on camera?

    I am imagining they are held on w/2-sided tape and has no 'frame', so to speak, around the lens. I am most confident the filters are pieces of plastic sheet cut out in the size of the camera lens barrel and adheres to the outer edge of the barrel. This would make it very manageable in my opinion and eliminate the need for counter weights.

    But what do I know? :confused: Like you, I am awaiting the results. :cool:

    Just got the filters delivered.
    Arrived in a envelope, with the filters in a pamphlet style envelope, with each filter in a light plastic cover.
    The filters are a form of film. Also supplied are many small tabs of double sided tape.
    Don't know how they perform, as the weather is crap at the moment. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    What the....
    I thought it would come with outer plastic ring like in a photo:

    Fixing only with sticky tape looks cheap and unreliable. IMO.

    They could be tightly putted on camera face.

    So they could be too tight to be removed from the camera, or too loose to fall off?
    I think stick-on will be best for the standard.
    Will try to get out later to see what they perform like.

    You can make it just right, not too loose, not too tight :)
    Looking forward for your test results.

    What`s the diameter of a filter glass?

    Looking at your pictures in #13 they look smaller...
