Well in keeping with the learning curve with the new E-PL1 full spectrum I have been experimenting with filters to see how things work! Here are some new filters and the results.
First, a B+W 090, 590nm (#25)
Here is another with the 090 filter:
As you can see, it gives pleasing Faux Color but also good B&W (I am only posting the Faux). This is a light red #25 with a filter factor of 5! I think that this has been my favorite so far, but I do not have the 091 med red 620nm (coming) in hand yet to test. Both the 090 & 091 are selling for ~$30.00 on Amazon.
OK, next is the 099, ~16 yellow/orange filter at 550nm. It has a filter factor of 4 and gives DEEP colorful Faux images, but the blue sky tends to lean to green (no big deal in CS5). I like it but I think that the 090 filter is a little more useful. This 099 filter is on sale at Amazon for $24.00!
Lastly for today, we have the LDP XDP filter. This is a specialty filter that is Dual Band Pass. What this means is that it passes UV light from ~300 to 450nm and then from 750nm to 850nm. This is a strange filter that gives very interesting results. It has a very high filter factor which I would guess to be around 40 to 50! The image below is right out of the camera with only sharpening applied. What do you think? Any use?
