[filmscanners] Re: film and scanning vs digital photography



In the telescope, I'm using a 420nm long pass. It has a faint yellow
cast, yet really kills the UV when I use it with the 380nm LEDs. The
420nm yellow cast is barely there. That it, it won't turn a blue sky
green like some warming filters do. I'm going to order a 415nm from
Andover for extreme long distance use. From that point, I can judge if
it turns the sky green. B&H sells the Schneider Optics 415nm as a filter
for B&W use.

I have a book on shooting from aircraft, which mentions the UV effect on
haze. However, it really didn't go into filtering. I did mention
shooting a third of a stop faster (less light) since cameras don't set
their exposure accurately when used under airborne conditions.
