You know the definition of a Yorkshireman? A Scot who has had his generosity surgically removed.

Just like a Scouser is a Geordie with his brains bashed out.

But seriously (who, me?), why improvise with welder's goggles when you can get a genuine ND filter to fit your camera lens direct from China on eBay for under a fiver, post paid.

Don't be shocked.

I just got a cloned battery grip, spare battery, three battery holders and a charger for my Nikon D800 direct from China on eBay for under 60. Superb quality but would have cost me over 400 if I'd bought the Nikon equivalents.

The way I look at it is that if even 10% of the stuff you buy from China on eBay turns out to be junk (very unlikely) you are still quids in.
