I found a site with the descriptions of the filters with the K3, http://rafcamera.com/ Hope this helps, because the markings on the filters are in Russian.

N-4x – is quite strong neutral density filter that reduces light amount 4 times. It can be used to increase shutter speed if necessary (to blur motion, for example).

F-1734 is weak diopter that allows to extend field of few by 1-2%.

Y-1,4x – light-yellow. It enhances transmission of visual brightness proportion of blue, green and yellow objects for portrait shots under artificial light, for nature shots with large clouds on blue sky, and for any nature shots with short exposures at twilight.

UV-1x is colorless glass. It is used to reduce effect of ultraviolet light (in mountains), for lenses without multi-coating to shoot on b/w and especially on color film.

Y-2x – yellow. It is widely used for all sorts of nature shots to achieve correct transmission of visual brightness proportion of blue, green and yellow objects. It highlights clouds and increases contrast of shadows and distant objects. It also eliminates effect of haze.

Presumably you are aware that the yellow filters are for b/w film.

I am learning as I go, the camera has been sitting unused for months and now I am enrolled in a film school and have been shooting color and soon b/w. I thank you for the information, there is a lot to learn about using film, but I really enjoy it.

Thanks

I have seen red and green filters for the K3 but can you attach any old filter as long as its the right thread size?

 

by the way what is the thread size if one wanted to buy filters for the K3?
