shoturtle, what shutter speeds & f-stop were you using for these.

I suspect using such a dark ND filter on cameras with live view (or EVF) must be challenging as the LCD/EVF will not have enough light, making it difficult to compose the image in bright daylight. Considering that the EPL1 has the same low resolution LCD as the EP1/EP2, how well (or not) does it work with the ND filter on the lens?

The exif data should be in the photos. I was shooting around 1.7 to 3.2 on the lens, as I was trying to see different thing, and add the 3 stop for the ND. All shots were 1/80 or better.

There was no issues with the ND filter and shooting with the lcd or the evf that I used. It was just like shooting regular photo.

Very nice. But, it seems that the ND filter is creating a slight pink'ish cast. When you have a chance, can you take a couple of shots (preferably if the weather is overcast like in this picture you posted), with and w/o the filter? I don't think the change in aperture/shutter speed will matter in this case. I'm just curious.

Tullio,

That pink cast was actually the sun popping through the clouds. In my other shots, the ND was on, and the color did not have the pink cast. Also part of it is my wife like the ienhance over vivid mode

Very nice shoturtle! Love the light trails - I've wanted to get a shot like that in my personal library for ages.... just never got the opportunity or been in the right place at the right time.

For when I do get the chance, can you confirm what your shutter speed and aperture were for the shot (I can't see the EXIF).... Presumably it was quite a long exposure?
