    Agreed, at least make the ultra tiny screws in them captive for faster swapping. Or if possible some kind of quick latch installation?

I believe Weapon detects this automatically somehow, but the current system requires you manually select the OLPF installed in the camera through the in camera FW settings.
    Of course I was not expecting a perfect color response when doing something so obviously wrong but it still might have an interesting look with a pleasant noise floor. I was honestly surprised when I recently first tried the LL OLPF after it was sitting in its box for a couple of weeks before. While I did not see any major difference when I tested at normal exposures the files pretty much hold up when pushing the Iso in the shot we did that night. So, David what was noise like when you tested this wrong setup?

    Cheers,

    It was daylight stuff with a strong cyan cast after switching out from LLO to STH but leaving firmware at LLO. I can confirm that identical night stots are for certain cleaner on LLO and can be pushed further, but that is what it's made for. :)

    Ah Ok, than there wont be anything to explore. Thanks David. I still feel all this noise talk is much overrated…
    Im a happy camper and Im glad to have all these options (just added Johns full spectrum OLPF as well).

    Cheers,

    Ulf

    Agree. Noise shows up in real extremes, as it is supposed too. :)

    At NAB the Weapon OLPF system was described to me as using something like a thumbscrew for quick swap. No more bolts. I did not actually get to see it, so I can only pass along what I was told.

    Hello everyone, I recently used the Skin Tone OLPF and the footage looks greenish. Have anyone else had this problem? or maybe I'm doing something wrong! any suggestions?

    Sounds like you have the olpf setting to a different olpf other than the one you intended. Make sure you set for the proper olpf and blackshade your camera

    Can anyone recall if when you use a Kippertie filter, the option to allocate that in the menu is available?
    I have some of these Kipperties but dont have them with me at this time to test myself? Maybe one of you guys can confirm?

    The Kipper tie as based either on the STH or the LLO. Therefor, depending on which KipperTie you have in you set the camera to LLO or STH.
    KipperTie do not have their own looks in the OLPF settings they are based on the RED OLPF settings.
