    Yes that was the big surprise for me I always understood by the amount of recommendation that it was a class leader, Nice to see SRB for the price performing reasonably well especially as some are 3x the price

    Interesting how some of the higher priced ones come out badly, perhaps a manufacturers name can be a big influence to some consumers to buy their product

    I bought the SRB a while ago, just in case I ever needed one, as I don't do landies it's unlikely :) It had very good ratings from AP I believe. Strange thing ratings, Practical Photography have just started mentioning Youngnu (sp) stuff, they give the flashes best buy, despite them being a quarter of the top brand price, sometimes I suspect brown envelopes, allegedly, LOL. They've never mentioned their stuff before.

    @steve b As you may know im colour blind to a certain degree and I use the SRB quite a bit after using Hoya pro and I dont see any difference whatsoever, In Fact since I have had my 17-40 and 24-104 I only have SRB filters (several diff ones) and very pleased considering the price they match other top names at over twice there price.

    As for Yongnuo Flash guns they are absolute fantastic value again i've used several models and not had any issues Im currently using there direct copy of the top range Canon EX600 and it just as good, I know @tenchy and several others on here swear by them as well.

    @Mark 1 I know how good Yongnuo are Mark, as I've never heard a bad word said about them. I've got strobe and shutter triggers that I've had for years, they've never let me down. It's taken mags a long time to come on board was my poorly put point.

    yes I love mine for the bang to buck they are amazing. I think they are creeping up in price though they are adding more features like built in receivers etc.
    I could have bought three 565s that I have one of for the price of the single Canon 580 I have. Only thing the 565s can't do that the 580 can is HSS. There is the 568 (was-probably new models now) that do everything the 580 does, for a little more than the 565s.

    Nice to see I've got two of the worst (Lee and BW)! I've always found my BW to be pretty neutral but what do I know, I can't tell blue and purple apart....

    Future never mentions them in their magazines because they do not get freebies from them. Nothing free no review.

    I've got a B&W ten stopper. Yes, it has a colour cast but I quite like it as it adds a nice warm tone to the photo.

    I might get one of the 82mm SRB ones since I'm a numpty and didn't check the thread size on my Sigma 24-105 before I bought it....:rolleyes:

    I use Lee too. I found out a month ago whilst doing a firms medical that I am colour blind to some degree. Took nearly 62 years to be told that.:)

    So am I, There is lots of way to define being colour blind and many people who suffer it are have different levels of how bad the colour blindness is. Its like on a variable scale some very poor can only see black and white some cant see specific colours some mild, There is many different levels

    I can see colours. But obviously to a different degree to " the norm". I am surprised it took this long for it to be pointed out.
    I think it is more if the pastel shades that I find difficult to tell a part.

    Always been a fan of the Haida pro 2 filters . Not seen the nano one before but good to see it in the top and prices of them are very good

    I've been using Zomei nd1000 and nd64 square filters and I'm pretty pleased with them. They perform pretty well in terms of colour cast , are made of good quality glass and are less than 1/2 the price of the market "leaders". Has anyone used these or tested them against Lee or Hitech?
