Right Diameter UV filter and Still Vignetting?
Posted 03 August 2010 - 04:44 AM
I just got my test rolls back from scanning, shot with my Nizo Pro and Leicina Special, and while they look good, I see vignetting on both cameras in full wide mode; something I didn't see in the viewfinder
Both cameras have the same filter diameter, and I used two UV filters of the same brand, yet I am still getting them "in the shot"....The lens shades used are original Nizo and Leitz ones.
The question is, can I thread a bigger filter on (step-up ring?) or is there a specific UV filter anyone recommends that is wide enough not to interfere?

Have you tried filming without any filter on the lens, just to confirm the problem does lie with the filters and not that it's just the lens that's vignetting?
That is definitely the next step as soon as I get more film. I just find it hard to believe that both cameras, with two top lenses on them, will do exactly the same thing (but hey...you never know.)

Thank you for that; I didn't know about the thin filter models. If it turns out the filter thickness is the problem, I'll definitely look into those B&W filters,

Thank You! It seems we have solved at least the issue with the Leicina. I did not know this about the lens.
Now I will just have to test run the Nizo "with/without" to see what to do about that one.
