    Filters Black Mist filters

    I am thinking of getting a light effect mist filter (1/8) to soften up highlights. Do you think a HQ-brand filter like Tiffen or Urth performs much better than a filter off of Amazon at half the price? Thoughts, opinions? Thank you.

    Advice Wanted Looking for protection for square filters.

    Heuou. I'm looking for any ideas and suggestions on fabric pouches for square lens filters. The ones I have is the Lee Sev5n System but some of the filters came without the fabric blue pouches for them and I would like to buy a few to protect the filters from dust and scratches. I already have...

    Filters K&F magnetic filters

    Been using these for a while, but the only annoying thing was not being able to buy a “base” UV filter other than as part of a pack. They have just fixed that, so I can kit my main wide angle lenses to all be ready to take magnetic ND or Polariser filters 😀

    Filters Magnetic Filters

    My wife and I are thinking of getting a few magnetic ND filters and I was wondering if anybody could share their experiences with these? Are they as wonderous as they mounting and de- mounting? Are good quality filters available....K+F and Freewell seem to be featured heavily in any...

    I learned about a filter named "Dream Smoothing" which is part of the free G'MIC plugin library. Grabbed a random car picture of mine and ran it through. Love the results!

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. B&W jpgs for interest only - sooc.

    If I want an infrared image to be B&W I always process from RAW. However, I set my IR camera to RAW + jpg and use a B&W camera preset. The only reason for this is that the viewfinder is easier to see in B&W than the mostly red IR version. The sooc images below are just for interest.

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. Processsed from RAW.

    The 5 RAW images in the previous post are processed as follows: 1. In Adobe Camera Raw apply a pre-prepared camera profile which is based on a custom IR white balance. 2. In ACR use the eyedropper to set local WB from a neutral area. 3. In PS use the Channel Mixer to swap the Red and Blue...

    Infrared Images Comparison of various IR wavelength filters. RAW.

    As I've mentioned I own a full spectrum converted infrared camera so it 'sees' most of the ultraviolet and infrared range of light (deliberately blocked in a normal camera) as well as the visible spectrum. You can limit this to parts of the visible + infrared spectrum by using external filters...

    Infrared Gear The higher-end Kolari conversion filters -- worth it?

    If things go according to plan, I'll be sending my 720nm X-E2 off to Kolari this week to get made into a 590nm camera. And as I go through the options, I see that there are three levels of filter offered: an "industry standard uncoated filter" IR conversion, an IR conversion that is said to have...

    Film Questions about filters and film

    What would be a good choice for a overall filter that I could use for BW photography in say a very sunny place? I like my BW pictures that I took in Tula, but felt I could have done with something to lessen the bright light a bit. It was a very sunny and open space with only wispy clouds in...
