Hello All,

 

I was wondering what the most efficient order for stacking filters was. Currently I use n IR Cut (my camera is sensitive to pollution especially wide open), various ND's and I just bought a Hollywood Blackmagic 1/4 to take some of the digital sharpness way on certain shots.

 

Would be very appreciative if you could give me your feedback on what the ideal order of stacking them was. I would especially love to hear Mr. Mullen's input. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Anthony

IR Cut Filters should be placed outermost in the mattebox. They should be marked as to which side of the filter should face front. Other than that it doesn't matter what order the rest go in.

Thanks Stuart,

 

I appreciate it. Interesting that the IR Cut should be outermost. I thought they might reflect through the filter stack and cause artifacts I will try it that way.

 

Best regards,

 

Anthony
