Can someone please give me a breakdown on the various lens filters: their usage and effect
I have some super 8 and 16mm cameras and I would like to know what certain filters can do:
I am referring to screw type lens filters, that ones that can attach to front of a lens, given the correct thread size.
I have seen the full color spectrum represented in filters, so what I am basically asking is how does each colored lens alter/enhance/distort/ the shot? i.e the red filter is supposed to increase contrast in black and white film. What effect would it have if one used it with color film? A breakdown of each color filtered and filter type and how these lenses alter/enhance/distort a shot, both with regard to black and white and color film
P.S What are the other types of filters and are they different from filters that screw on the the front of a lens?
