    I've used digital for a few years and hated the black and white feature on it, as it really didn't behave like a real b&w, in that a red or polariser did nothing to the sky! Anyway, I've used red, orange, yellow-green, and a polariser in the past (forget which brand), but now cokin.

    However, in colour, the cokin ND doesn't seem to work well on digital, as it can render the sky purple-ish (quite unnatural), does this happen on film?

    I have a small set of Lee Filters (3 stop ND Hard Grad, Coral Grad and combined 3 srop ND Hard Grad with warm up at the bottom). I use these with my Bronica SQ-B and D300. I will use them with my 35mm kit once I've bought the adaptors.

    I've got a set of various colours (red, blue green, orange and yellow) that I use (very occasionally) with my F100 and will be looking for their equivalents for my OM1 / OM2n. I also use digital protect (clear) filters for the lenses I have for my D300.

    I tend to think of filters as having two uses. One - they produce whatever effect you want from them and, two - they provide some protection from dust, water and finger marks for your lens.

    I have just started to gain intrest in filters. I will hopefully get a few soon. I just picked up an 85B to shoot some Ektachrome 64T in daylight. I can't wait to see how it goes.

    Light yellow is my standard filter. Yellow-orange for landscapes, and yellow-green in the summer for landscapes and sometimes portraits. DUTO 0 or 1 when I use soft filters.

    If you find it a bit too cool, try a 'plain' 85.
    It's better for that.

    Hi, I have a filter that is 2 piece thing. One piece screws on to the lens of course and the other just free spins and I think It says Polarizer on the side? I can't remember the brand? I wonder how I use this filter if it just free spins? And to get it off if I want I'd have to try a wide rubber band or duct tape?

    The effect of a polarizer changes with its orientation. So it needs to rotate freely, without falling off your lens when it does.

    It's no problem getting a grip of the non-rotating part to get it on and off the lens. Only fingers required.

    or maybe just UV, if you consider them to be real filters?
