  1. Re: What’s your most “unpopular” opinion about LF?

    This is becoming a big issue in cinematography. The conventional position is that "cinema cameras" continue to be manual focus by design and that autofocus is inferior. Give it another five years,...

    Re: Which diameter filter

    Luckily, when I was deciding to purchase the Schneider Kreuznach lens and centre filter that I mentioned in post #60, NiSi/B&H decided to sell that 112mm polariser for half price for 24 hours.

    I have the same 82mm filters with one possible difference. My yellow B+W is 022. I didn't know that B+W makes a 020, or is that a typo? My yellow-green Hoya is HMC X0.
