No filters(ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/30 seconds)


6.png

Breakthrough 6 stop ND(ISO 200, f/5.6, 2.5 seconds)

We can see the filters color cast is very low and a little bit like warm-toned, 

this is can be omited.

Kase is also excellent in the low color cast and a little bit like cold-toned.

this is can be omited.

Breakthrough  10stop ND(ISO 200, f/5.6, 30 seconds)

Based on the exposure 1/30 seconds, we turn up to 10 stop or 1024 times, so the exact 

exposure time is 34 seconds. We can make a conclusion that is the Breakthrough 

ND filters are very excellent in photo's color control even in high stop exposure.

Kase 10 stop ND (ISO 200, f/5.6, 30seconds) 

Kase filters stop is very correct, and the photo's light is the same as no use filters. 

What's more surprising is that the color cast control is better than the 6 stop gear

and there is almost no color cast.

Obviously, through our tests, we can see that the Breakthrough and Kase all have some vignetting. 

However, more important is that in the more dark corner, Kase is doing well.


Part 3: Vignetting

We now that high stop filters have vignetting, this is hard to avoid it.
