MDH is the Gingerbeer who comes up with solutions to many an issue I have with my photography equipment - or other things around the place.

His latest solution for balancing the CGO3+ with the Neewer CPL. I have noticed a wobble in it this afternoon at the beach - I"ll keep an eye on it.

If you see an issue of altogether too heavy that will cause gibmal motor burnout I'm all ear's.

Here is the explanation of what was wrong and the solution he came up with. - I've also tacked on the end a simple hack I did for when my HD filters are on the camera - all the time and I was sick of putting the cleaning cloth over and between the lens and the camera cover.


Follow the link to view this afternoon's initial comparision of straight down with ND16 and CPL at the beach. I so muct return and concentrate on the shadows. I love them.

Another way to make a counter weight is to use a lead putty often used by fishermen. Easy to put on and remove for each lens weight.
