Ordered hitech .6/.9 hards and softs, 4x5's, with holder/adapter (by cokin cause I'm cheap).

It'll be a while before they're here, i didn't splurge for expensive shipping, 1st class mail was free!

It'll be sooner than you think if you order from 2filter, they're usually pretty on the ball.

Now, once you get them, just remember there is a steep learning curve so don't expect anything to great initially. And learn your histogram well, its an amazing tool with grad. NDs involved.

:lol: Ah yes the waiting game, we all know it all to well. As for the Cokin holder, it may be cheaper but it is in now way in adequate at all.
Look forward to seeing you pics.

Crap.

2filters says cokin's holders and adapters are backordered until late january. I'm gonna switch to teh Lee holder/adapter I think. I'm not quite baller enough to go with the hitech.

Since I just won that contest and had a couple late x-mas orders, I might be picking up my setup sooner than expected. So, I'll have everything I need, but no 5D yet. :lol:

Good luck with the switch, sucks on the back order.

the 4x4 hitech solid nd's are in stock, but my 4x5 hitech hard grads (and cokin filter/adapter) are back-ordered. and my polarizer at singh-ray is back-ordered. suuuuuuux.

They didn't tell me that the hard grads are back ordered, just the cokin holders. We'll see if I get more emails today.

Yeah, I'll be needing four 4x5 Hitechs, so I'm sure mine will be back-ordered as well.

That definitely sucks.

I think the back-ordered order only has the .6 hard. I've ordered so much crap over the past month, including xmas stuff I'm getting a little fuzzy on the details. All I remember is that I won't have any hard grads, a holder, or a polarizer until end of Jan.
