MrSMW Posted July 7, 2020 Share Posted July 7, 2020 Bit of a minefield to the uninitiated such as myself. Well not so much minefield but so many options! Black, white, glimmer, satin, strengths... I watched a video that had every single one side by side but it didn't help and if anything caused further confusion. They are not cheap so it's not a case of even getting some and trying them, so looking for any direct experience. I'm currently shooting *cough* weddings in an attempted *cough* 'cinematic' style. Define 'cinemantic'... Well for me, a slightly nostalgic, film-like look with shallow DOF but no over the top processing or anamorphic flares etc. Looks like it could have been shot on film stock, but wasn't. XT3, Fringer Pro, Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 is my combo. I also use a variable ND in order that I can shoot wide open most of the time. I'm happy with my baked in straight out of camera look which is based on shooting; 4k 60p, DCI 17:9 crop, tweaked Classic Chrome (not Eterna), 400% dynamic range (so min 640 ISO), but of course that Sigma is very sharp, even with sharpness turned right down. I do very little post-processing partly for workflow/time reasons and partly because I don't need or want to, but I'd still like to develop an even more 'filmic/cinematic' look baked in hence my interest in filtration. So the specific question is who has used any of these Tiffen filters, which one's, why, experience, opinions etc... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
