    Filters for Nikon FE2

    I need to get some filters for a Nikon FE2. I understand filter usage, but know nothing about brands.
    I shoot black and white fine art landscapes.

    Thanks for any advice -

    What size? It depends upon lens filter size. Camera body has nothing to do with it. Start with a deep yellow #15 and green and red filters.

    To save money you might have to get a step up ring.

    If you are using AI/AIS Nikkor lenses then a 52mm filter thread is quite common. I use a Nikon Yellow Y48, a Hoya orange filter (can't remember the grade), a red Nikon R60 & a circular polariser.This Ken Rockwell page gives info on filter effect for B&W film. http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/filters.htm

    When buying filters look for ones that are multicoated if you can. Also avoid cheap no brand ones.

    Hoya HMC filters (multicoated) are excellent and not really expensive. The two lenses you mentioned are both 52mm filter size, I believe -- I know the 28mm is. I recommend orange as a good black and white filter -- and don't forget a polarizing filter, since it's great for cutting haze and really bringing out the clouds. (Yes, it's not just for color.)

    Just saw the post above -- $20 for three Nikon filters is a really good deal.

    I also have a nikon polarizer in excellent condition with a nikon hn-12 lens hood that works with it. I can let you have for an extra $10.00. Like Nick says, they do work great for cutting haze and bringing out clouds in Black And White.
