I have been asked a few times how I am able to use ND Filters on the Sony Wide angle converter lens VCL-ECU1 so I have taken a few photos of the set-up to show how it works.
You will need:
A 67mm metal ring adapter for Cokin P series Filter Holder
A filter holder for Cokin P series filters. ( make sure it is one that can fit up to 3 filters, you only use 1)
Sony 16mm f/2.8 lens and the Sony VCL-ECU1 wide angle converter
A few photos of the set-up on the camera……….
* Make sure you get the 67mm filter ring as you need a tight fit. You have to push it up to the black lens shade part of the VCL-ECU1.
* After that you have space to slide the ND Filter in.
* It works best in Landscape format but when I use it in portrait format I have to shade the top of the filter to stop light entering into the frame. I just use the filter pocket my ND Filter comes in but you can use your hand too.
Of course I would like a Sony 10-18mm whereby I could use a variety of filters but maybe one day:)
This set-up works very well and I always use it for my landscape/seascape images. Any questions/comments feel free to ask.
