View Full Version : Diffusion filters - contact printing?

5-Feb-2016, 17:40
I was gifted a lot of diffusion filters (Harrison), intended to be put in front of a taking lens for motion picture work, as well as a couple for enlarging. None are large enough for 4x5" contact printing. From another source I have large versions of the same which are immediately useful for contact printing; I do not know their original design intent.

So, asking the net wisdom, what, if any result/consequence might arise from using so-called soft filters as the the pressure glass for contact printing. Yes, "try it and let us know" is a realistic response.
