What is the stop loss when using Antique Suede 3? I cannot seem to find that information on Tiffen or Formatt's sites. Thanks.

Why don't you just meter through it and find out that way?

Google is your friend- first hit on 'antique suede 3 factor'. 2 stops.

I'd still meter through the filter to be sure. What if yours is old or faded?

I DEFINITELY wouldn't trust Wikipedia or a website of dubious origins. There is no "number check" remember. Even Kodak datasheets on filters I've seen typos on, so be sure to double-check. . .

Definitely meter the filter. I put my filters on an SLR to check exposure compensation. I have three sets of Antique Suedes. Two of my #3's rate at 2-stops and another at 1 2/3's stops. I have a set of Chocolates that rate the same way. There can be a visible difference sometimes.

The best thing to do is shoot tests to make sure the finished product is what you want. You may not want to compensate the light loss completely. With color filtration, it's about "the look."

That's true, thanks guys. I guess they're all a bit different. When I metered through this one it was only 1 1/2 stops.
