hey thanks guys,
I see there are many sellers on ebay with Lee filters too so I may try them someday.
Any suggestions for Green/Magenta filters?
Magenta vs. stacking red and blue:
I had another question: "do you think it's OK to stack red and blue filters to get magenta?" but now I feel confident that a magenta filter would be better since the red filter would block some blue unnecessarily and the blue would block some red. A magenta filter would just block green.
I took a look at the Lee website and it's pretty nice. You can see the transmission charts for the filters you suggested. Just click on the color sample and it shows you the data. Here's a good starting point http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/advice/technical/
and here's their "DJ Pack 1" which has both the 166 and the 026 (HT stands for high temperature, by the way, in case you have eye-beams like Cyclops http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/prod ... 94373C018/
You can see the red and blue-green have basically no overlap.
As far as green/magenta filters go, my first instinct is to go with the Saturates Pack:http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/prod ... 98E7ECECA/
although they don't have a labelled magenta in that pack, they have a mauve that might be OK.
It looks like the best filters are the glass ones but I guess I'll just use the ones I got from "Journey.. Earth"
Under the "Glass Dichroic Filters" section, V98 Lavender 8 looks very good for magenta:http://www.leefilters.com/lighting/prod ... 710CD8EC9/
but the M56 Magenta 6 also looks good, and then there's the G28 Lime 8 for green.
I know that in order to really know how good these are for you, you would need to try them and not just look at the transmission charts but it's interesting and I think it can be helpful as a starting point if someone wants to go on a quest for better green/magenta or other. I guess one would also want to match the graphs of your displays elements and your eyes to the filters to have them all work together. OK, whatever. bye.
Do you think there's any hope for a petition to get Hollywood to make only red/cyan instead of green/magenta? I agree with Likay (from another thread) that it's a better choice.
