Red Filter + Blue Diffuser?
Posted 07 December 2010 - 11:36 AM
I was thinking that if I used a mild red filter like a Wratten 85 or other magic filter equivalent combined with a blue diffuser on the strobes such as the Inon -.5 blue I could minimize the strobe issue. The effective power of the strobe would be cut significantly since you're filtering out a lot of what is getting output, but I'm guessing this would only matter in a few situations.
Anyone ever try this? Thoughts?

when I don't quite hit the high spots...
Yeah, I completely agreee with the logic. I guess I'm on the border of "serious" photographer and vaction shooter. I only get in 20 or 30 dives a year and I hate it when I don't have the right lens to capture the momement when that manta ray flies by or I spot a cool pygmy seahorse. On the other hand, I do frame some of my better shots and I'm pretty proud of some that are hanging by request in other people's houses. So I'm still trying to create that "magic" camera that can:
- Have good ISO 400+ quality
- Filter blue light on demand
- Macro on demand
- Wide angle on demand
