Hi all, I just purchased a second hand Canon 40D and am looking at modding it by removing the filter and replace it with Baader BCF or something similar.
I had a look at a few sites, the Baader BCF can be had for $110 from Astroshop, and there are a few overseas sellers also.
Where did you get your replacement filters from and are there any stand out names/makes?
thanks, Bo

Great service, cheap too.
Replaced stock filter with the Baader one you mentioned.

Thanks for the quick response Doug,
I also had a look at DS Central in Korea http://www.centralds.net/cam/
They seem to do the same thing. Just fired an email to them to get a quote for mod, postage and insurance back to Aust.

Quick update, Peter Tan can send out a BCF filter including postage and PP fee for HK$740, which is around $95. Just waiting for my pay now...
