    Yellow filter

    Hi, Is it okay to use a yellow filter as a permanent lens protector for all outdoor and indoor shots. I am using 35mm Ilford XP2 film.
    Thank you.

    You can leave the yellow filter on for black and white, but it will limit your abilities. Sometimes you may not want the filter effects for a particular shot and other times you might want the stronger effects of an orange or red filter, or even the different effects of a green or polarizing filter. Also, a great many of these effects can be replicated in post processing. I would recommend a clear UV type filter for lens protection.

    I was thinking it was probably most common to scan negatives to digital and didn't think twice about your response...

    Stay sharp,

    Yes, you can do that. But you'll be working with an image that has no color information. It will be greyscale, so there's no ability to impart any color filter effect.

    @Horoscope Fish posted this informative article a while back. It's a comparison between various UV filters. He found a Hoya UV filter that runs around $20 performs very well so those are the ones I've been getting. No issues with them either.

    I guess I am confused now. Yellow filter helps with contrast, no?
