Induro BHL3 review



Myer Bornstein - That is a great filter and worth the price

Nick Palmieri - Great filters especially the one with the polarizer. Great set of images!

Roman Kurywczak - Thanks Guys! Yep… my bag any time I’m going to be near water. Have to see if I can squeeze the polarised one into the budget!

Jules K - Great review, Roman! You’ve convinced me!

What’s in my bag? » Roamin' with Roman Photo Tours - […] That’s it for the cameras, lenses, and tripods.  I hope to make an accessory page shortly but for now you can check out some of the gear I tested on my review page. […]

R David Parker - I will be attending the Pacific NW Nature Photographers lecture on Nov 7. I am interested in purchasing the Sigma 18-300mm C lenses (referred to as the “workhorse” in the Sigma info area). Currently, my partner has the Sigma 150-600mm C lenses (with dock) which has really helped her photography. One question is about the Sigma extenders–Can the 1.4x and the 2x be used by either lens? I have more questions so I am glad to be able to talk directly with a Sigma rep.

Roman - Hi David,

I have used the 18-300mm lens and you can see my thoughts and images with it on my blog here

As for the extenders….the new Sigma TC1401 will auto focus with many mid-range to pro camera bodies with the 150-600mm C and S lenses as well as all global visions and Art line…..not the 18-300 C. There will be a Sigma tech rep at the conference to answer any additional questions you may have.

R David Parker - I am glad to hear there will be a tech there too. I have done an analysis and discovered that 80% of my photos are in the 40-140mm focal length. Another one I am interested in is the 24-105mm A lens to hopefully improve the clarity on my photos. It will interesting to discuss this idea as well as others.
