    With the old OLPF, after a while the feedback from the owners using the cameras said they wanted better skintones, less flare and would love more room in the highlights.

    Now people are requesting that stop from the top put back down to the bottom. As I said when i released the new OLPF.. this is all optional.. and up to you guys.

    Obviously you can't have everything.. but if you choose the new OLPF we can make the noise on the bottom better as I already mentioned.. noise is much easier to deal with than clipped highlights.

    If the new OLPF isn't for you, then you can choose the old OLPF, but that means we can't give you the extra stop on the top, but we can give you back the old flares and the old skintones, :)

    an itty bitty tweak in the low end noise via Natress sauce is all we needs i thinks. :)

    That new OLPF is pretty stunning in MANY situations compared to MX.

    "friends don't let friends clip highlights" (or have mullets for that matter) Stoplights are your friend.

    I made a new post. Hopefully this clears up some noise :)

    It would be amazing to have the OLPF modular (user-echangeable) as well. This way folks can have several OLPFs at hand and chose the one (with appropriate calibration) to suit the particular needs.

    Problem is that as easy as it seems for our engineers to do it, for normal people like me it is kind of a pain in the ass to change the OLPF without the proper custom tool.

    I guess we could just make a bunch of tools....

    You can think ND filter wheel.

    Dual layer - ND + OLPF choices.
    No need for custom tool and fiddling around the sensor on set.
    Click - done.

    The price: front module and sacrifice in compactness.
    The gain: significant.

    I'd personally like a much weaker olpf to squeak out even more detail.

    I'd like the ability to choose what I like for a specific project if that ability is achievable.

    :)

    Strong/medium/clear(none) OLPF would do the trick.

    If the premise is having a modular camera system, I propose considering modular front side as well with a wheel option.
    NDs, mechanical shutter, OLPFs.
