  2. Hi all, I just wanted to share a new online library that I've been working on with my focus puller to share our lens and filter tests with other filmmakers, cinematographers, directors, camera crews etc. It's called the LFL - Lens & Filter Library and is available at rwpreisner.com/lfl So far there are over 80 lens and filter tests with many more to come in the next few months. It's currently in the early stages of development and I'm looking for feedback to see how useful people find it to be and what improvements they would like to see. I'm also looking to see how useful the choice of tests are to those that use the library. It's available to be saved as a quick shortcut on IOS & Android devices so can essentially function as an App on Ipad and Android as well as the videos being available in 4k for viewing on larger monitors. It's appeared a couple of times in the BSC magazine news and they have been supportive. You can read their short article about it here Have a look and it'd be great to know your thoughts!
  3. Hi, Apologies if the anwsers to my questions are obvious, my background is in lighting and the stuff I found online only raised more questions. I’m about do a short on S8mm (Canon 814, 7.5-60 mm) and I’ll be using a thread in 85 filter for some exterior stuff. I’m wondering about "safety" of adding another filter on top of it (ND). My two worries are: Is there a high risk of the two filters creating reflections and flares? I’ve read a lot about Matte Box filters potentially creating issues like that. Could there be any Vignetting on the wide end of the zoom? I unfortunately was not able to test that as I had no access to both filters at the time. The filter size on this particular lens is 58mm, if that’s relevant at all. Many Thanks, Michal
  4. I have a film coming up that I would like to try some split diopters shots on. I have not used split diopters in the past and I would interested to hear about how you have used them. I would love to see how people have rigged them on to the camera so that you can control where the split is in the frame, I don't necessarily want it to cut through the center. Please share any picture you have of your setup, as well as tips, tricks, and things to know when working with split diopters. Thanks, Laffrey
  5. https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/uk/news/handy-filters-launches-the-worlds-first-modular-magnetic-filter-system The REVORING Swift filter system is designed for quick and simple filter adding and swapping using snap-on magnetic attachment rather than fiddly screw-in or slide-in filters.
  6. The late cinematographer Robby Müller was a big advocate of testing. I remember watching an interview of him talking about doing extensive tests of various filters for an upcoming BW film. From what I recall, he said he ran film tests for a couple of weeks with filters. And in the end, he decided filters were not up to the job for his film. Müller was an advocate of letting the camera stay in the background and not having camera work be the main thing. Internet Photo: Fair Use Robby Müller, Inventive Cinematographer, Is Dead at 78 - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Bringing it home to our own forum, I read countless questions here that can't be solved by words, they have to be solved by tests. In the digital age you can't get things any easier to test than digital. And with film, testing is even more important. So, I can't understand why people have such a block to testing things. Can you tell me why? Recently I joined a forum that deals with various still scanning methods and post work. As specialized forum for scanning, I thought it would be a given that members would have test results comparing a flatbed scanner against a camera scanning setup, as they had sections for both of them. My interest in camera scanning is my archival work. Some archival work, especially some cine' film, is not conducive to flatbed scanning. So, I would like to know how methods compare before throwing some money at it. As well as knowing what direction to throw the money in. You would have thought I was from outer space asking the forum that question. I got nothing useful from the forum except a lot of replies criticizing me and my request. Not looking for pen pals, nor having time to waste, I left the forum. I will have to throw some money at it and do my own testing. I was just trying to economize on testing to find direction. Sometimes it is nice if you can build and refine on the testing that has gone before you. But to really get at the truth, you need to test things yourself sometimes. Breastfeeding won't yield much if the tit is dry. <><><><> Example of Newton rings from scanning film directly on glass - DDTJRAC
  7. Just $40 each filter! I can provide more pictures if needed/requested. If someone wants to buy the lot, feel free to make me an offer. Preference for NYC locals who can meet up and pay cash/Venmo/PayPal nearby in Brooklyn or Manhattan, but I can also ship. My preference is not to break up sets (as grouped below), and not to have to go to the post office to ship one $40 filter, so if you want me to ship only one or two, just consider there to be a $100 minimum charge, excluding the shipping cost. 4x4 85 (Tiffen) 4x4 85 ND3 (Tiffen) 4x4 85 ND6 (Tiffen) 4x4 85 ND9 (Tiffen) 4x4 85B (Tiffen) 4x4 85 Pola (Tiffen) 4x4 81B (Tiffen) 4x4 UV-16 (H&H) 4x4 Enhancer (Tiffen) 4x4 Yellow 4 (YL4 = Tiffen #15 equiv.)

  10. Hello everyone, I am seeking for examples of filter use on 16 mm, anything from glimmer, black promist to effect filters (stars ...etc) will do. If movies also pop in mind don't hesitate ? I am in research for an upcoming 16 mm video (dance performance, with natural light) that we'll shot with the aaton xtr , 7219 film, zeiss 12 mm & zeiss zoom 12-120 (by mind). Caméra on dolly or stand, 'black swan' inspired of some sort . Thanks ! Jordan

  13. This may be an obvious question. But does using orange or red filters with 16mm Kodak Double X have the same affect as with 35 or 120 photography film stock? Can't really see any examples from Google. Thanks

  17. Following the widely successful launch of the LEE100 Filter Holder in March, LEE Filters has introduced two new products to further enhance the system. The new LEE100 Tandem Adaptor proves invaluable on occasions when one filter holder isn’t enough, and the LEE100 Hood is a versatile and sturdy companion to the ecosystem. The LEE100 Tandem Adaptor Unique to the LEE Filters system, the Tandem Adaptor, which is constructed from aluminium, allows the photographer to use more than one ND grad and rotate each independently, so they can be set at different angles. This allows for far more precise creative control of the exposure in complex lighting situations than one holder alone. To fit, the first LEE100 Filter Holder is attached to the lens via the adaptor ring as normal. The LEE100 Tandem Adaptor then slides into the holder’s outermost slot, and the second LEE100 Filter Holder is attached to the adaptor. The holder closest to the lens can be used with up to three filter slots (one must be used for the Tandem), while the holder that’s attached to the Tandem Adaptor can be configured with one, two or three further filter guides. Both holders can be rotated freely until the desired effect is achieved, and then locked in place to avoid any accidental movement of the filters. The LEE100 Hood Designed to shade the camera’s lens and reduce the risk of stray light and flare spoiling the image, the LEE100 Hood can be used with up to three slot-in filters plus the LEE Filters Polariser. Constructed from a water-resistant reinforced nylon in a collapsible concertina design, it is self-supporting, with no need for intrusive and fiddly rails or guides, and can be adjusted to different angles and extensions for maximum versatility. Simple to set up, the hood comes with an attachment ring that is affixed to the LEE100 Filter Holder via four locking tabs. The hood is then locked securely on to the attachment ring with a lever. It is then attached to the adaptor ring in the usual way. The hood can be rotated independently of the LEE100 Filter Holder, allowing the photographer to use ND grads as normal, while still getting the most out of the hood itself. At its fullest extension, the hood can be used with lenses of around 28mm and a two-slot filter guide without the risk of vignetting. Once it is reduced to half extension, lenses as wide as around 20mm can be used without vignetting. Easy to extend and collapse, and quick to attach and detach, the LEE100 Hood is the ideal addition to the photographer’s kit bag. Pricing The LEE100 Tandem Adaptor is available now to purchase from LEE Filters dealers, with a MSRP of $65. The LEE100 Hood is available to purchase from LEE Filters dealers beginning August 19, with a MSRP of $295.

  20. Dear Cinematographers, It can be seen in the films of Takeshi Kitano and Kiyoshi Kurosawa, among many others. Hausu, Ran, violent Cop, Hana-Bi, Cure - even Charisma, Ju-On, Ringu, and Pulse (Kairo) - and many others all have the same, distinctly Japanese '80s, '90s aesthetic - and not simply on account of the costumes and set decoration. It is a late night TV special kind of look, with faded tones. Other than that meager description, I cannot further elaborate - the aesthetic is too subtle. Therefore I must ask you who are greatly more experienced than I - was it by means of the cameras, lenses, and filters, or was it primarily the film? I would sincerely like to know for a feature on which I am presently working. Sincerely Grateful, Kurt Cassidy-Gabhart
  21. Hi, Looking for variable ND filters for this lens. According to the information "Holds 1 Series 9 filter". Can I use 82mm filters for this lens? Any filter size Series 9 compatible?
  22. Hi, I'm in the market for a few ND filters in 4x5.65 size Looking for : 0.9 ND (3 stop) 1.8 ND (6 stop) Black pro mist 1/2 OR Black frost 1/2 Thanks!
  23. Hi all. Excited to ask my very first question on this forum! For an upcoming short, I'm trying to achieve a pastel, somewhat low-contrast color palette in a bright daytime exterior, very much like the attached reference image from Vertigo. Being a micro budget project, I don't have the opportunity to pre test a bunch of filters or lenses. Any recommendations on filtration for this reduced contrast, slightly blooming look? For the project, I'm using the Ikonoskop A-Cam DII. I own this camera, and the colors from its Super16 Kodak CCD sensor feel inherently pure and dare I say film-like. I'm pairing it with oldish glass, the Cooke 9-50 Varokinetal (T2.5). I've rented this lens before and it is not only affordable but renders a very creamy three dimensional image. I've attached a sample I shot with this configuration, no filters. Just need to turn that into something less contrasty, more talcumy, more "vintage" for lack of a better word. Thank you! Jall
  24. I currently own a K-3 16mm camera that came with 5 ND filters. I'm trying to label them for shooting purposes, but there are no instructions on how to identify which filter is for what purpose. Does anyone know how to label them properly? Nathan
  25. Dear guys, I'm going to Hong Kong for a photography project (and I also want to shot some 150 fps). I want to get the look of this picture in a GH5 with a Leica Summicron R (f2) and I'll probably use a Minolta flash. I'm looking for a 4x4 filter that can helps me to reach the following look on camera. Do you have some recommendation? Thanks, best S.
