    I did a lot of searching before I buy this one.

    Compared to some other expensive competitors, B+W is reasonably affordable.

    Build quality is amazing. I comes with a plastic case which is NOT as good as the filter istself.

    I mainly intended using it for ladscapes and waterscapes. BUT I've read there were some reddish color cast on the photos. I'll talk about this.

    Yes the color cast is sometimes disturbingly visible but at some other time it may completely disappear(same place-same settings). This is an inconsistent effect to be honest. After trying it over 40 different places I've concluded :

    -ND 3.0 is too dark that you want to focus first then put the filter on. Also dark filter may cause WB problems.

    -ND 3.0 is also too dark that you never want to use aperture or shuttter priority modes. They always calculate half the light of enough exposure. So use manual only and shoot again if it's too dark.

    -Reddish color cast mainly emerges when your WB settings are automatic. So shoot RAW if you want to be able to fix your images later.

    -In bright daylight situations it can give you around 15 seconds of exposure. Which is bad enough for trees etc. to move due to wind and appear bluury on your final image. This is bad for landscapes and you may go for a brighter ND filter.

    -In low light situations it causes desaturation sometimes. The image may seem washed out.

    -Perfect for waterscapes and rivers. The water may even look like fog.

    -It's really hard to clean, I guess it's bacause of it's coating. Even with a microfiber cloth it takes more than 5 minutes to clean it. So use it carefully.

    -In a few photos it caused huge reddish cast only in the center of the image(mostly visible on darker areas). I caouldn't find out why.

    Would I buy this product again? Yes, definitely!
    Bu double it with a ND 1.2 if you're mostly a landscaper.

    I purchased this 9 stop ND filter so that I could try some long exposure daylight shots to get that silky water effect and also to experiment with other subjects such as meadows and tree canopies.

    It seems to be well made and it is considerably more affordable than some of the other 9-10 stop ND filters. However, it does have a distinct reddish colour cast. This isn't a serious problem for my purposes but some might feel otherwise.

    The effect appears to be consistently even throughout the surface.

        This is the only 10-stop filter I own, but it seems well-made, threads on easily, and does the job it's intended for.

                  Awesome product, heavy duty/well build piece of glass. Germany knows what they are doing when it comes to ND filters. This little piece of glass changes everything, now you can actually shoot midday and have interesting effects!! Love it to say the least

                          I take a lot of images using a pinhole lens fitted to my digital SLR, however I'm interested in extending the exposure time from seconds to several minutes, even in broad daylight. The B+W 10-stop ND filter fits the bill perfectly.

                          This product works well on my canon L lens. Without it I would not be able to capture long exposures during the day. I would recommend this product to other photographers.

                          I use this filter in stack with another BW ND1000 to achieve 16 stops for long exposures. Has some red cast but is easy to fix using white balance in post process. Very recommended filter

                                    Works great for long exposures especially to get smooth silky water

                                      slight vignetting in corners, very solid though.

                                          If you need a high quality glass filter that really decreases the light, then this filter is for you. B+W is one of the German companies that have been making lenses and filters for many years and know haw to do it right. If quality is important to you then, this product should be at the top of your list.

                                            I use it for very long daytime exposures to accentuate movement of water, leaves, clouds, etc.

                                              Having 10 stops to play with opens new possibilities. (if you want less, just up the ISO.) At f/22, ISO 50 I can shoot 5 minute exposures in the middle of a sunny day. Try it on anything that moves. Very well build, no color shift. Much easier to operate than Lee/Cokin square filter holders.
