    Homemade 35mm panoramic filters

    I just had a thunk today. I am going to figure a way to get some material that would fit into a Cokin A-style holder and cut slots into them with varying thicknesses for panoramic exposures. I know I would have to meter the scene bfore placing the filters on the lens as the excessive dark area of the filter face would skew the reading toward underexposure. Any thoughts?
    Thank you.

    I am totally unfamiliar with a "panoramic filter."

    How is it supposed to work?

    How do you use it?

    Exactly what does it filter?

    Well, I made one. And I suppose it is more of an image shaper or formatter for FILM (don't stone me). Lemme essplain.

    I took a plastic artist's pallette. Cut a piece to Cokin a specifications. Cut out a slot across the middle of the short axis of the filter that was .302 inches wide and the length of the filter minus about .375 inches on each end. I also painted the side facing the camera as the white material showed up through the viewfinder. It slides into a Cokin "A" style holder and when you look through it, you see an image that is about half of the height of the 4" height of the 4x6 in the viewfinder.

    All this does is alter the shape of the image. It was something to play with and I know we could always crop a "panoramic" but this helps as a visual aid and really produces some interesting altered perspectives in the viewfinder. I have yet to click the shutter, but I will today and post some images to my gallery.
    Thank you.
