What kind of filter would create this effect? It is a smearing, streaking effect in the highlights. See photos.

Thank you for your time.

That's actually due to an out-of-sync shutter. The film starts advancing to the next frame before the shutter has completely closed, causing the last percentage of exposure (the brightest objects in the frame) to smear upwards.

Yes, something that one usually tries to avoid! But it is an interesting look, too. I'm not sure which cameras can be used to create the effect. I know an out of time Kinor will do it, it's belt driven.
