The fact is that any filter this dark is going to give you a color cast. The B+W's give a orangish red color cast. and the CameraPlus ones give you a blueish color cast.
The color cast on the CameraPlus's are more apparent compared to the B+W's.
The IQ degradation is almost identical. Both images are extremely sharp.
both B+W and Haida post production white balance result in almost the EXACT same image. Its super easy to fix in light room or Photoshop no matter what filter you choose.
In all, CameraPlus is professional, cheap, quality and thickness option.

There are only a few brands out there that make these filters. Heliopans run highest price and B+W are in the middle. I came across another brand I noticed one called CameraPlus which go for 1/3 cost which is half the price, but I could not find much research on them. After extensive google searching I found out that these are excellent filters compared to B+W. I know there are others out there that likely want more information on them so I will post what I have found out here. Im about to purchase the CameraPlus filters, I did no research on the Heliopans as they are out of my price range. There are 2 major concerns when purchasing a ND filter: 1 is color cast and 2 is IQ degredation. CameraPlus works out smartly as B+W.
