Question about Pentax K1000 35mm SLR Camera
I have just got this pentax k1000 film camera and it came with 4 lens filters could you tell me what they do?
1.) BOWER skylight 49mm
2.) HDYA 49mm PL
3.) Quantaray 55mm 1A
4.) HANIMEX 55mm ploarizing
Bower is brand name skylight is slightly yellow helps soften light there are diffrent densitys. Filter is mostly used to protect orginal glass of lens from dirt smudges scratches & rough treatment. Keep on lens most of the time.
Hyda brand name. PL 3 i believe to be a dark polarizing filter.
Quantaray 1A4 I believe is a haze or skylight filter.
Haze filter does almost the same as a skylight filter.
Hanimex brand name. Polarizing filter used to shoot through reflective glass or surfaces (water), also in color used to sharpen colors. The reason it is turnable is it is light directional beaning light comes through it at a angal hold up to light & turn it you can see how it darkens or litens. Also can stay on lens when not useing skylight filter.
reason you have 2 is one of each for two diffrent lens, 49mm & 55mm.
Hope this helped. Please rate.Thank You.
