    home made filter holder for the new 11-24mm super wide

    Here is a photo of my home made filter holder.

    Basic part was just a rubber plumbing fitting - cost was about $15.

    I then just cut it down a bit because it was too long.
    A thin sheet of aluminium was then screwed to the rubber fitting after a suitable hole was cut using a jig saw.

    I cut some plastic to create a suitable groove for the filters to slide into. This was lined with some felt my wife had - hence the white rather than a black felt.

    The plastic filter holders were then screwed onto the aluminium sheet. Job complete.

    I bought some glue to attach the felt to the plastic, a few screws and the plumbing fitting. Total cost $30.

    The filters being used are Hitech 165mmx200mm jobs - and they cost ten times the cost of the filter holder.

    Hope this inspires you to save some bucks by making bits you can make because I sure as hell can't manufacture my own gradient filters.
