I am going to be shooting a short in the very near future with a set of Zeiss Compact Primes and the Panasonic AF100. One shot in the movie will require a split field diopter.
I've used these before on my old Canon FD mount lenses, but they were threaded circle filters. Since the Compact Primes don't have a thread I have purchased the Oconner WM O-Box with 4 x 4 and 4 x 5.6 trays.
The problem is, I can't seem to find any split field diopters to fit a square filter tray. I've done quite a bit of internet sleuthing and have found nothing but circle filters with threads.
Am I crazy, or are these hard to come by?
I even asked a Zeiss Rep. who didn't have an answer for me (I suppose he wouldn't know what other companies sell anyhow, but I thought I'd give it a shot.)
I was going to call Tiffen or Schneider (I'm assuming both make them) but figured I'd post here first, hoping that I cannot only be reassured of their existence, but also, maybe for some tips?
Any different than using them on those old FDs?
