As Travel Photographers we are constantly shooting in all sorts of lighting conditions and quite often we have no alternative but to increase our ISO to get a shot especially when it is impossible to use a tripod.
A review of the URTH ND2-400 Variable Filter. This filter reduces between 1-stop and 8.65-stops of light.
A Travel Photographer’s nemesis is the weather. Days with washed-out skies or even cloudless days can make images boring and bland. In high dynamic scenes where there are extremely bright sky highlights and dark foregrounds, it is impossible to get a well-balanced image without bracketing shots and combining them in software.
Back in December 2014 we made the decision to move from Nikon to the Sony mirrorless camera system and bought the Sony A7r. This camera is 36mp of sheer delight. We purchased it with the FE 24-70 F4 Zeiss lens which has been an absolute dream to work with.

People always ask us why we use these when most cameras now have great tools for keeping the camera level.

There are many different models and can be found on eBay, Amazon or at your local camera shop.
