Black and White films have one weakness: they do not see enough difference between the blue of the sky and the white of clouds. This filter is a remedy.
There is no filter thread on the LC-A, but thats no problem here
What do we need?
- a piece of unexposed, developed color-negative film
- pair of scissors
- transparent adhesive tape
The piece of film needs to be big enough to cover the LC-As lens.
I cut the sprockets, you don´t have to when you are in a hurry
Stick the tape all around.
Cut it down nicely. Again, you don´t have to, if you don´t care.
That´s how it should look.
Nearly done. Stick it onto your LC-A, firmly press it on.
Thats the dirt cheap fast orange-Filter
In case you don´t need the filter, stick it onto the back of your LC-A
For comparison a photo with light clouds , the first one without the second one with filter:
You can see a clear difference. Besides that you can prevent an unpleasant overexposure with strong sun as you can see by the two following examples. As before the first photo without, second one with filter:
Filter-factor seems to be x2, I set the LC-A to 25 iso for a 50 iso film, should work with other films to.
I hope you find this tipster useful, have fun trying it out!
