    You can get a 21" iMac for $1099 with 8gb of memory (which is plenty). I would do that and then if you feel like you need more memory down the road, upgrade it. You can get 8gb of memory for under...

    I like the look, but that isn't the same as saying it's right for the job.

    If the card were actually for the Bronx Zoo, you'd need to consider the current branding of the zoo, then make your...

    I'm considering buying an adapter for my Z6 so I can use filters on it. I've read varying opinions on filters - some people say don't even bother with filters on a digital camera. Others say there's a couple filters they simply can't live without.

    Since my current camera is not a DSLR, (but is a nice camera, worth spending a little $ on helpful accessories) I don't want to go wild with tons of expensive accessories. But I am considering a couple Tiffen or Hoya filters. I've read reviews on these, stating that they are quite good and not as expensive as some higher-end brands.

    So what's your opinion? Filter or no?
    Recommended brands?
    Filters you can't live without?

    I'm considering a UV filter and a Circular Polarizing filter.

    I personally can't live without my filters on certain shots. I have a UV, Polarizer, and a FD "skylight" filter, which basically adds warmth to a black and white shot.

    Also macro lenses are the shiz. As for filters I plan on buying? I plan on getting a soft focus filter for portrait shots, and a cross filter which adds 4 point stars to light.

    But yeah, neutral density and polarizing filters are a must have, so I would start with those.

      Thanks D-Frag. I think I am going to get that adapter. I mean, shoot, it's only $15 anyway. And a couple Hoya or Tiffen filters won't be more than $15-$20 each. Might as well give it a try

        Personally i don't have any now, i used to have a UV filter on my previous 70-200mm f4.
        However i'm looking to get a polarizer and a ND filter.
