Hi List,

I'm shooting a travel commercial with a 5d and 7d and going for a heavily diffused look. Full BPM on the 5d setup with Follow focus / Matt Box etc but on the 7D i need the stills equivalent with a Screw on.

Shneiders offset B+W have nothing similar and it's hard because you cannot test these filters (in Australia no-one has them in the shops, special order only)

Has anyone had much experience with photography softening filters???

I can't set them both up with matt boxes because i'm looking for the smallest camera kit possible to mount on mountain bikes / hang gliders etc.

Thanks in Advance.

Cheers, James

You could also rent a clip on mattebox and use your 4x5s that way.

Cheers James.
