  • Thanks, can’t take too much credit though as it was all done in the scan by my mate’s new lab!

  • You chose the camera, chose the film, saw the scene, framed the shot, pressed the shutter!

    Give yourself some credit, lol

  • Has there been a discussion about using UV/sky/polarising screw on filter on an slr lens for protection. Do the screw on filters increase lens flair? Do modern colour or black and white films need 'help' that a uv or sky filter would give?

    Am asking as I have been reading about using screw on filters to protect the lens, as I was told, but there seems to be two opposite side to the discussion.

    Do you still use the cokin square filters any more.

  • there seems to be two opposite side to the discussion

    ..yes there is, and there always has been.
    You should probably just try it for yourself (shoot the same things twice, with UV filter and without) and see what differences it makes / if it actually does make a difference.

    My only advice would be using proper ones with good coatings (as with front elements of the actual lenses, this means less reflections, plus easier to clean).

    Never used the cokin ones as that always seemed like a major pain in the ass.

    nice shots, and beautiful tones 👌

  • Two sides of the argument and both are equally valid.

    The key issue is the coating on the lens rather than the technology of the film. AST @tinakino said, try with and without. Personally, if I’m using old lenses I tend to do so without filters because I like how they perform, flaws and all. I confess I do use UV filters for protection on expensive modern digital lenses, even though I know I really don’t need to.

    For film, I do use square filter holders for landscape when I need ND grad to retain detail in the sky as well as exposing properly for the foreground. Especially if shooting slide film. Because I have them for that, I also have some strong ND filters for long exposure shots on film and digital. Not Cokin though, I use Formatt Hitech

    Like the ones from wish ;)

    I was just wondering, when I used to shot with film it was what my teacher/lecturers said to fit. That was 30 years ago so am wondering if things have changed.

    Also the only film cameras have used in the past 5 years is a 120 Diana and a 35mm diana or whatever it is and tlr royflex.

  • I also have some strong ND filters for long exposure shots on film and digital

    Was going to wander over to chat on the digital thread to ask if people still use filters, or is it all photoshop.

  • For me it's all photoshop but I do have a lot of respect for people who go through the trouble of shooting fucking slides properly with appropriate colour / grad filters 👍

  • On digital, I rarely bother with ND grads now - the dynamic range of most sensor is so good you can just expose for the sky and pull up the shadows in post- processing. Only use polariser, IR filter (for B&W IR pics) and 6-stop ND for long exposures.

  • Just developed my first 4x5.
    Was expecting a cock up at some point having never shot large format.
    Loaded this one a little wonky but i know my error.

  • Did the focus still work out? I had film pop in the holder with high humidity and long exposures and that threw off the focus.

  • Did the focus still work out?

    Looks like it, I need a flatbed scanner to actually pixel peep

  • How much? Would be handy with my iiif
