09 Jun REVIEW: Testing Haida Photo Filters

Source: Maclean Photographic

As a landscape photographer a good set of quality filters is just as important as a solid tripod to get a high quality image in camera.  I always have a circular polariser, at least one neutral density filter and a set of neutral density graduated filters in the camera bag everytime I go out on assignment or just for pleasure.

When I became a professional photographer I was an early convert to the Lee filter system but then bought into the Formatt Hitech Firecrest system two years ago.  The Firecrest system offers me great quality colour neutral filters but I do find the filter holder a little fiddly and getting the polariser on and off is, quite frankly, a pain.   

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by Haida, a filter manufacturer based in the city of Ningbo, 200km south of Shanghai, to see if I would be interested in reviewing their M10 and Red Diamond filter system.  

I have to admit that, while I heard of the company, I haven’t come across Haida products before.  So I conducted a bit of research and found several reviews that concluded that the quality of the Red Diamond filters was on a par with the best on the market.  Intrigued, I emailed my contact at Haida and asked for some filters to review.

Why do I use 100mm Filters on a Fujifilm X Series?

Haida do make a smaller 75mm filter
