Hello,

As afore mentioned, what is the effect of doubling these filters, will reds pod even more and blues, greens even more decoulorised?

Also does anyone have some example pictures where they were used?
And a spec sheet on the filter.

Allyn.

Hi the red enhancer is not a red filter, it absorbs a narrow band of light between red and green - suppresses that, causing the more pure red reflected light to pop.

So I don't really know if doubling would yield any benefit.... you could try it...

Weird idea -- try 2 brands of enhancers which might have slightly different characteristic, say a Tiffen and a Singh-Ray...

You could try a red enhancer with say a tobacco, the tobacco might favor some of the muddiness the enhancer tries to eliminate but not exactly.....

you're on your own here I think !
