He all, I posted in another thread but thought I would start a new one since I am getting so many questions about the new OLPF coming and concerns about the optical flare / reflections that some people are seeing with the old filter.
In certain situations the current Dragon OLPF can exhibit a reflected IR flare or magenta glow around bright sources inside or on the edge of Frame in different strengths depending on the light, the angle of reflection, lens etc.
Good news is that the new OLPF comes out of the oven en masse in about a month.. and it solves the flare issues as well as fixes a few other optical / IR characteristics that we have seen over the last couple months.
Graeme is going to kick my ass for posting this image because he is still in the middle of the new color science that goes with the new OLPF, but I thought it was important to share with you an example of the new filter as the difference is meaningful, and an image is worth a thousand words.
New on top, current on bottom.
Of course, for all existing Dragons already out there we will gladly swap out the OLPF to anyone who requests it for no charge, just let your Bombsquad rep know you would like it done.
Update Feb. 4th. Phil Holland took the new OLPF for a spin...
