DIY In-Camera Filter... Dangerous, Stupid or both? In: SAMSUNG NX1 / NX500 HACK Posted December 30, 2017 · Report reply 20 hours ago, Juxx989 said: I have a filter I enjoy using 90% of the time and I started thinking... what if I just cut it perfectly and popped it in front of the sensor (not thinking permanent) I have a NX1- and it seems to have the clearance to do so from the back of my S- lenses to the sensor... (my Rokonon 12mm is not tho the rear glass is bulbous and protrudes out quite a bit Guess its how they made it so wide but still can take a screw on filter) Its seems like it would solve some problems of not flaring as much and I can rock any lens.... I have a NX 10 collecting dust I could use as a test subject this guy did something similar but made his infrared (and said he destroyed its ability to shoot normal) I was just thinking I could put it and remove it with Tweezers http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Permanent-Infrared-DSLR-Camera/ Main worries are if a little piece of sand gets in between them some how it will become sandpaper and grind the sensor and wtf would happen if I triggered the Manual Shutter (could switch to e shutter) I have an INTP personality so im always thinking of crazy shit... any thoughts on this one? I've thought about this too, except in a slightly different approach. Entertain me for a second. I'm a fellow INTP. 😎 You know those macro extension tubes sold cheaply on line? Well, they actually maintain electronic control with native NX glass and could be a perfect candidate to retrofit a diffusion filter inside whilst gaining macro ability and keeping AF/Aperture communication intact. Thoughts? I would be very leary of putting any other material besides glass close to the image sensor. I think that's asking for trips to the camera repair shop for frequent sensor cleaning.
