If you are like me you have a large box of filters lying in a drawer somewhere reminding you of life before digital. I had a glorious hour mucking about with them on the V1 today, and they work a treat on monochrome and are certainly going to come in handy with video. Quite a stack of Zenit colour filters, UV filters and skylight filters, polarisers and even some more exotic ones lurking at the bottom...

Compare the shot before....

And the shot after the Nikon Y48 yellow filter...

with a Tiffen soft/warm FX1...

Nikon Y48 gives a nice contrast
I don't care for the Tiffen, but the star filter has promise.
