Hi everyone,

This is something you put on a back of a lens. What is the best practice to apply it and where to buy it? 

Thanks,

Alex

I gather you can't get it any more, I've been using Fogal 110 Noblesse. I got it from the South London Filter Company, but I guess you could google it.

 

What type of lens are you planning to use? You can get irings for some lenses.

Someone on Reduser had posted this info, that a company called "Secrets in Lace" sells a pantyhose that matches Christian Dior 10 Denier -- their model is 9960 Gennia 10DN Black.
 
It works pretty well, but you may have to put up with receiving catalogs with photos of middle-aged ladies wearing lingerie...

You can find them on ebay from time to time. I've picked up a few pairs there and just bought another set this morning!

Now I'm wondering if they tested a whole bunch of tights and stockings to find the one that matched perfectly!?

 

I mean can't you get away with any old 10 denier tights?

Do they really have to be Dior?

Do different colours have a different effect even if they are Dior or is black the only way to go?

(I'm guessing it might be the case, anyone tried purple stockings?)

 

I showed my friend this thread and she said it seems almost fetishistic, only not in the way you might assume! lol!

I think that has always been a problem with DPs looking for nets. Samuelsons, the camera rental company of old, had a lady called Doris who dealt with filters and it seems she was a real expert on nets.

Just stumbled on this:

 

The "dernier" of the weave is the important thing, plus what colour the nets are. Black will not affect the contrast much, brown will give a sepia look and white will create a more blown-out milky image.

 

 

Of course I'm wondering what purple or navy would do!

(You might not be able to get those colours in dior but there are other makes with purple 10 denier)

Purple and or Navy will give you a reason to pick some up and grab a vDSLR and post up some tests Freya ;)

 

I keep meaning to get a bunch of nets of varying colors ect and play 'round-- but alas it' s almost always a time/money thing.

Do you know that is a great idea!

I keep forgetting I have the GH1!

I'm really busy this week or so but will try and sort something out!

Having tested stocking for diffusion on stills I can say that the tension, and hence the distance between the threads, is significant. So the fixing needs to be permanent to eliminate any variation.

A more tightly stretched 20D would be equivalent to a looser 10D.

These were front-of-lens tests though, either in a 4" frame in a matte box or stretched over the metal lens hood of a Rolleiflex. The nearer to the glass the better.

I used the thinnest Fogal as a substitute for the Dior as well, back in the days. Worked fine.
