    What color filter for black and white

    Using Fujifilm ACROS Neopan 100, through a Canon Elan 7e and kit lens. 58mm thread on a 28-90 kit lens (actually pretty sharp on my Rebel)

    I have green, yellow, orange and a really light tan not sure what it was called. Shooting the Space Shuttle launch from about 4 miles away, downrange from the sunlight. Shouldn't be too cloudy but post clear and cloudy scenarios it's been a while since I've shot BW.

    Also, should I use a polarizer for color films and Kodachrome KR64? I have them.

    90mm from 4 miles away? What about borrowing a 300... it's a special occasion.

    I don't see any reason to filter. You could take a polarizer but your zoom is probably not fast and with 100 speed film....

    funny you say that, I may be able to grab a 300mm f4L tomorrow. I'm a regular customer at a camera shop here they do ALL of my printing I've spent a small fortune on film developing here they said to come by tomorrow before I leave they may let me hold it. I have no filter for it though it's like 82mm or something gigantic.

    I planned on mostly wide angle shots but wanted one or two closeups. I have a d****al but the lens on it is not compatible with my Elan (because it's formatted for d****al, which means I get to upgrade)

    I'm not worried about exposure it's sunny Florida that particular camera with Elite Chrome 100 was letting me shoot 500 f/8 with an orange filter no exposure compensation. The launch is at 3pm so as long as it doesn't get delayed 2 hours I should be fine, but a 2 hour delay would make for some awesome lighting.

    You could get by without a filter, but if you really need one, a yellow or a orange will be alright. A 82 size will be kinda expensive.

    My 72's for my Tamron on my d****al were 50 a pop and the 82mm polarizer is like 100 bucks.

    77mm Jeff, when it gets too scratched to use as a filter you can use it as a soup plate
