Wolf, The pics were taken with just glass.
The only thing I would want for in the pic quality is sometimes the flash is so bright it washes the deer (the buck in this thread) if they are too close. Not sure a UV filter would help that. Overall pretty good quality.
Like others, I built two cameras one with a UV filter and one with window glass. The difference in picture quality is very noticeable, The UV filter is much better. Checking out local sources it cost me about $10 per filter. Doing a search on the internet I found a site "camerafilters.com", where they sell UV filters (Hoya) for $3.95 and give a 10% discount and S&H is only $4. I bought 5 filters delivered for $4.35 ea. If you use UV filters, you might want to check it out. Lew
I too used a one piece of plexi glass. I replaced it with a uv lense, I'm waiting for the results Its out right now. Trying to fill up a roll of film. I got 4 52mm off of ebay from a company called VIP Photo out of New Orleans I bought mine for $1.00 each. Plus $2.00 shipping for the first. each after $1.00 each. So for 4 I spent $9.00 total. You could try to see if they will sell more the email I got from them was firstname.lastname@example.org It might be worth it?
Ok guys I got a person I can get some 46mm UVs from that I can get and resell for about $3.50 a piece (plus shipping) if anyone want some. Just e-mail me how many you want and your address and I will return the e-mail. He has 38 of them, don't know how many he still has but if I can get enought interest I will buy them all and sell them to whoever wants them. :smile-big-blue:
Thanks davered1, MBullish and Mike, I got you three down for yours. NOTE: I went back and lowered the price down to $3.50 a piece, this will give me a little room and still give you a good deal. :batwings:
Tinhorn thanks for the question, I'll try to get him to measure them just to make sure. They should be between 1 3/4" (44mm) and 1 7/8" (48mm). I was going to use a hole saw of 1 3/4" then dremal them out to fit.
Hey Woodsman, I'm not really a pro at this, but from what I've seen of the pictures and the posting in here from everybody, this gives a much better quality picture. If you are like I am you want the clearest pictures you can get...hope that helps. If you want some e-mail me. Thanks.
Got them ordered, they should be shipped to me by Wed next week at the latest I would think. Got all of you covered that e-mailed me or sent messages. Got about 6 left if anybody needs them and 2 polarized one if anybody needs them. Thanks
I missed the mail today and the mailman left me a note of undelivered shipment. Should have the UVs tomorrow in the mail. Just letting the ones who ordered know that I should be getting them out shortly...will e-mail you when I check them out tomorrow...thanks bat
Got mine today! (well yesterday, actually..the wife was hiding them, lol). Look great, already thinking of how to adjust all the things i have to do this weekend to retrofit cam #1 this weekend...so many things, so little time!
Thanks bat, for the time and effort on your part (and the 20 cents change was nice, too!)
