Why I never bought a ND Grad filter

Earlier this month I have described the Neutral Density Filters as being a must have tool for any landscape photographer, and I was not surprised at all when I got comments that if Neutral Density Filters are important for landscape photography Graduated ND filters should be even more important.
So why didn’t I ever invested in one ?

Why are white lenses … white ?

God knows how many times I’ve read this question in photography equipment forums “Why are most Canon L lenses white?” or “Can’t Canon give me a black L lens?” etc…

Well first of all there are quite few Canon L lenses that are black and second Canon is not the only manufacturer that “offers” white lenses. Lenses are white for a reason.

Why Lenses are white?

Neutral Density Filters: What are they & when to use them ?

A few days ago I was shooting when someone passing by stopped to ask me “what are all these pieces of glass you put in front of the lens?” ” ((“This is a translated version of the question” ))” so this got me thinking that maybe some of adidap’s readers are not familiar with filters either! So today I will be writing about Neutral Density Filters, aka ND Filters, not to be confused with Graduated Neutral Density filters, or ND Grad filters ” ((“I will write about those later”))”.

Exposed: The memory card and ISO affair

I hope you can help me I am wondering about the relation between ISO and file size… I have noticed that when I set my camera to a higher ISO I can fit less pictures on it can you explain why ?

Good question Micheal, I will do my best to explain it and I am sure that others will also include their thoughts and input here so you should get a pretty complete answer.

Since you have noticed that higher ISO will generally give you larger files, I think that you might have also observed that a picture file size will vary even at a fixed ISO.
