Hello Again,

We it looks like we found our anamorphic lenses for our Western thesis film. Now I have to put together a list of filters that I need. We'll be using 6x6 drop-ins. Will the filters make the camera more flare-prone?

Should I get a set of hard mattes for each lens?

Any info regarding handling of 6x6's would be helpful

thanks,
je

Any "mist" or fog-type filter will increase the amount of halation around bright lights and areas. Pick your poison: ProMist, White Frost, GlimmerGlass, Fog, Low-Con...

You should rent hard mattes with your 6x6 mattebox, even if you don't always use them. You never know when they can help.

It is possible to use a 4x5 mattebox too with most of the anamorphic lenses if you find the right mattebox, one that's not too deep. It's important to prep the package carefully to make sure that nothing vignettes with the wider-angle anamorphic lenses.
