Any favorite / must have filters?
on Jun 5, 2006 at 6:05:05 pm

I'm putting together an order for 4x4 filters. (For a Chrosziel mounted on a Canon H1) Besides a polarizer and the requisite ND and gradient filters, does anyone have any suggestions as to any "must have" filters? Or perhaps you'd like to share your favorites?

I'm thinking about a warming filter along with a softener.

FWIW It's for a university, so funds are limited.

Thanks

- Jim

I have used Ultra Cons and Black diffusion to good result, but all this tends to be an "individual taste" thing. Others prefer to diffuse highlights...

I might look at what looks the students are most interested in...

Get the polarizer that rotates, not the single piece of glass... The one that rotates has a little knob on top to rotate the glass inside the frame.

I just tested a few filteres to use on the Sony HVR FX1 with Mini35 adapter. The usual Black Pro Mists didn't really grab me, but I really liked what the Low-Con filters did (sometimes even up to a 1 or 2), the Gold Diffusion FX on certain complexions and the low-numbered fog filters. Worth checking out.

ND 0.9
Black Diffusion FX 1/2
Star Effect 4pt
Color-Grad ND 0.6 (gradient filter)
Pro-Mist 1/4
ENHANCING
Gold Diffusion FX 1/2

Best
