    I know this isn't the topic but since I have your attention and you have both...for the life of me I cannot tell the difference between the satin and black satin from the tiffen video...and the only difference in narration between the 2 was that the black satin added a bit of warmth to the halation, which I just couldn't see . Its even hard to see the difference between the satin 1 and 2 from the vid . However, this video has been compressed to hell and back i'm sure.

    THe difference is a bit of a "warm/dark" veiling over the image. You see it pretty well in skin and really bright highlights, like sky transitions. I like the Satin 1, The BS1/2 offer something that I kinda noticed with the F35 in that it has this "warm glow" to highlights.

    I do prefer the BS1/2, but the Satin1's good for combining with DD2 when you don't want a heavily diffused look to highlights but want the roll off that the Satin 1 offers.

    I'm gonna do some a/b/c's as soon as I get someone to look at.

    Thanks for the explanation. Seems I got a good combo of the Satin 1 and DDfx2 for my 2.5k then. I got the DDFX2 for the same reason you've said...sometimes I don't want to see the blooming highlights. I should be getting them end of next week .

    Been thinking of picking up a Satin filter but that means I need to roll with a matte box every time I want to use it.

    Are you guys liking the images that accompany it? Im a fan of the halation, although I wish it was a little heavier, like a ProMist 1/4.

    I got the 77mm version Satin. I'm gonna be using my IR+diffusion probably all the time on the lens. Then on top of that I'll have my hoya ND which has the Xume adapters. So its a pretty quick system. I have almost all the Hoya ND line so I don't need to stack ND (because the Xume cant/Shouldn't be stacked). I don't have my diffusion filters yet. End of next week I should though.

    Same as Darren, I got 77mm for all of my filters aside from the Ultra Con. The day I get a matte box is the day I absolutely need to use a grad... it's fast approaching though.

    Just posted two stills from the 2.5K + BS1. The halation, IMO, is perfect for the 2.5K. The 2 is WAY too strong, though.

    2filter.com -- I had the same impression as you until I called around and found 2filter. They went right to Tiffen who makes 1, 2, and 3 in Circular. Ordered those things immediately.

    THey're about to close now though >.< You may have to call them on Monday.

    Edit: Speaking of, Ultra Con 2 just walked into the room.
