ND Filters

Some underwater photographers have filters that have a neutral density value in the top half. This decreases the exposure on the topside portion by either one or two stops, depending on your choice, but does not affect the seascape portion. I used this type of filter with my 12 mm—24 mm wide angle but found that on too many occasions I captured the line of density in the filter across my finished picture, so I stopped using it.

All my split shots are now taken with fisheye lenses. Whilst they have no filter thread on the front, they do have the facility to fit a small filter onto the rear of the lens. If you see this as the way forward then speak to your housing manufacture to ascertain whether one is available for your equipment. I personally don't use filters on my fisheye lenses.
