Camera filters Aulomacolor

How to change the tonal range of black and white photos

Why use Aulomacolor camera filters


The use of photo filters are an alternative or complement to the use of photo editing software. Aulomacolor filters are designed for black and white photography and can be used not only on our pinhole cameras, but also on analog and digital cameras. In particular, the use of camera filters makes it possible to obtain monochrome shots modified in the tonal range or to increase the exposure time. The photographs thus obtained will have a fantastic effect. Photographs transformed by filters can be an advantage for later post-production with a photo editor. Auomacolor filters are made of a special optical methacrylate resin, particularly resistant and with excellent light filtering characteristics. The lamination production process of our sheet filters allows to obtain constant sheet thicknesses without creating refraction problems. The methacrylate used by us offers a good resistance to dimensional variations due to temperature variations, up to 80° the structure remains stiff and there are no appreciable deformations in the parallelism of the filtering surfaces. These filters have been developed to make it easier for photographers who try their hand at wide-angle photography of uncommon formats such as 6x9, 6x12, 6x18 and 4x5 that require large filters, the solution proposed by Auloma are cheaper filters than the classic glass ones, therefore particularly suitable for fans of pinhole photography. Aulomacolor filters are available in two sizes Aulomacolor-L and Aulomacolor-XL in dimensions compatible with our filter holders or other brands, either for digital or analog cameras. Aulomacolor filter installation takes few seconds, thanks to the special elastic seats of our filter holder, the insertion of the filters is an immediate gesture, just slide the filters inside the elastic seats and place them above pinholes available in the camera.

How to install Aulomacolor filters on our pinhole cameras


The Aulomacolor filter installation system is similar for all the pinhole cameras designed to use an Aulomacolor-L-BW or Aulomacolor-XL-BW filter holder. The installation or removal of Aulomacolor filters is done by two simple operations. The first operation consists in mounting the Aulomacolor filter holder on the pinhole camera using threaded knobs. Once the filter holder is fixed, it will be sufficient to slide a filter into the elastic seats until it covers all pinholes on the camera. The system will automatically lock the filter without having to secure it with screws, magnets or other devices. Likewise, to remove the filter, simply hold it at the ends and slide it out of the elastic seats. Aulomacolor filter holders have the capability to hold up to three filters at the same time, so it will be possible to combine different filters to compose the desired photographic effect.
