Polarizing filters on a bolex
Posted 01 January 2007 - 11:35 PM
The POE and PTL zooms dont even have a thread ...
I understand that there is the gelatin filter holder but this wont work with polarizing filters due to the necessity to being able to rotate the filter.
I've investigated using set up filter rings but even that causes at least a hassle/inefficiency/cost that I would rather workaround.
what is the usual system ? some sort of matte box thing with a rotatable disk on it ?
Or are they simply not used ?

its a bad habit answering ones own threads !
but thank you for the info David - I think a mattebox and a good collection of accessories would be a good investment also
