Hi, I have just received a ND filter from a company called Haida Photo, and since I have never heard the name before, I wondered if anybody has any experience with this firm.

Best regards John

Suggest you let us know how you get on with it, since you already bought it ;P

A lot of people seem to like it, for less than half the price of a B+W

The Haida 10 stop filters are excellent. They add very little colour cast and if anything tend warm things up very slightly, in contrast to my Hitech 10 stopper which adds a cool blue cast. The Haida is definitely better than the Hitech, very well made too. I would recommend one.

Eh? Is this forum a competitor of itself?
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

No it's not and the poster it refers to will be aware of it. The link has been removed.

Apologies for that, didn't know of such a rule. Can you advise on where I can find the forum's rules section? Just need to make sure I don't break another one.

Regarding the topic, I think it's Haida and NiSi that are making these "more affordable" 10 stop filters:

Haida - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00DNEXFRK/

NiSi - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B008EL89T6/

Make sure you get the "thin" version to avoid vignetting!

This thread inspired me to dig out the Haida 77mm 10 stopper and toddle off down to Hardwick Hall to try it out on a reflections shot. This is the one I used it on - 30 second exposure, ISO 200, F8 with the 12-24 lens on the K-5iis. I haven't had to remove any colour cast on this image which to me speaks volumes for the quality of the coating on the Haida 10 stopper. It is far superior to the Hitech filter and I bet would give the B+W / Lee 10 stoppers a run for their money.
