    Re: 4x4 filter on 360mm Symmar-S?

    Well, I think it's going to work. If I'm doing this correctly, I get a view angle of ~ 81 degrees with the filter holder attached and the lens coverage is supposedly 70 degrees stopped down to f22. ...

    Re: 4x4 filter on 360mm Symmar-S?

    With a front filter thread of 120mm I wonder who bought these lenses and for what reasons and, for that matter, why did Schneider mfg a lens with such specs?

    4x4 filter on 360mm Symmar-S?

    I'm thinking of using my 4x4 filters on a 360mm Schneider Symmar-S. The convex glass of the lens measures ~ 86mm which a 4.4 filter placed on top completely covers with room to spare. The lens is...
  7. Re: The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    Doremus,

    Take your filters and meter outside and hold them up to the blue sky opposite the sun and see what you get. I did that this afternoon after my bike ride and this is what I got:

  8. Re: The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    I'll stick with measuring the blue of the sky opposite the sun - simpler that way and the results agree with the manufactures (quality manufactures such as B+W, Tiffen, etc) published f-stop factor. ...
  9. Re: The Wratten Mystery, or, What's My Factor?

    Go outside with your spot meter and filter. Take a spot reading of the blue sky opposite the sun. Then place your filter flush with the meter and take a reading. That's the filters f-stop factor.
