What was your last or most recent filter or lens accessory that you acquired for your Nikon camera?
That includes a purchase, a gift, a find, or an inheritance.
I just replaced the 34.5mm orange filter in the turret of my 1000mm f/11 Nikon mirror lens with a 4x neutral density filter that I recently purchased from KEH. I needed the filter for shooting solar eclipses and sunspots.
I just bought a Case Logic SLRA-2 Medium SLR Lens Case for my new 70-300mm VR, since the supplied Nikon pouch is not padded. I put the lens in the Nikon pouch and then both into the Case Logic case. It fits perfectly.
Earlier this month I picked up a 1-stop Hard Grad-ND, HiTech Z-size for easy handholding. I bought it to give me an edge for sky or cloud detail. I am glad I did, below is a recent capture taken with this filter handheld over the lens

My most recent allows me to attach my B+W CP filter to my 70-200 without worrying about it becoming permanently attached. The little rubber bumper on the lens front makes it almost impossible to get a grip on the filter edge with the fingers. Filter Wrench
The last lens I bought is a Sigma 150mm 1:2,8 APO MACRO DG HSM, only last week, did'nt have the time to try it out yet. The Seller, as a present for a late shipment, sent me a Hoya HMC UV (N) filter 72mm for it. Shall I use it or not. I never liked to add a glass on a lens.
Tried for some time to get a Nikon 122mm uv filter for my 400mm f3.5. Found one two weeks ago at Mr. Cad. Cost me almost as much as a lens but when it arrived I know why.. Hard leather case and the filter itself weighs a ton!!
My most recent purchase was a Lee BigStopper 4x4 glass filter. I sometimes want a little more darkening than I get with my Fader (1-8 stops). I love shooting moving water especially creeks and surf and waterfalls.
It is on backorder like most Lee products but will be here eventually.
As an earlier post noted, it is imperative to have a camera lens filter wrench set with the correct spanner sizes for your lenses and filters. when you break a screw-in filter and/or lens hood on location, and cannot remove them from an otherwise completely useable lens, you will understand what I mean. I also never forget to carry in my camera backpack lens-cleaning solution and microfiber cleaning cloth from visible dust. I also use visible dust sensor cleaning liquids and swabs as well. These are all non-alcohol solutions, and unlike flammable methanol sensor cleaners, will not (should not) be confiscated by TSA at airport screenings. good luck
I recently purchase d B+W 77mm 10 stop ND filter as I wanted to try out some landscape photography (including the dreamy waterfall). I am going to attend a day trip to Cuyahoga Valley National Park next weekend.

>Where does one get a "Moose" warming polarizer? >What does it do that is different from other polarizer >filters?
You can get it at B&H, Adorama, or Ebay. It's named after photographer B. Moose Peterson. It is a circular polarizer that has a slightly warm cast to it equivilant to an 81A. Not much point to the 81a with digital, but with film it's great. No need to have to stack polarizer and warm up filters. I think it's made by Hoya. I have it in 52, 67, and 77mm. And looking to get it in 58mm and maybe 62.
I'm familiar with Moose Peterson's work and books. However, at this time I don't shoot film except with some of my macro work and I use 81A but don't need the effect of a polarizer. Unless I'm missing something with regard to digital.
