Use center filter


New Member
I've so far shot one roll of 35mm film with my new XPan11 and 45mm lens using Velvia. In the panoramic mode light falloff was quite evident. The free rebate on the center filter was part of my purchase and I await this filter from Hasselblad. Other than losing light and slowing the lens down, is there any advantage to using the center filter when not in the panoramic mode?

Robert, I doubt the center filter will make any positive difference when the xpan is used in normal format mode. It will act as a ND filter exclusively. For your interest, I published a write up on the xPan here:
