question

Does anybody have recommendations on a front filter adapter so I can add an ND filter? Something small? Thanks!
Asked by: Harlan R.
Sorry, but wide angle lenses need large filters in order that the filter holders are not photographed. B&H does not seem to have a suitable filter holder at this time. However, here is a clamp that may work. http://bit.ly/19azXhK
