    Default Filter For Negatives with fluorescent lighting?

    Yes, we'll know we can add FLD filter to make slides looks better with fluorescent lighting. However, adding this filter also means one stop less light.

    For Negatives, we know that the lab can correct the green cast during printing. So, how many snappers here opt for the filter or just leave the job to the lab?

    Hi

    if using negs, don't bother.

    if slides, and if u really desire colour accuracy, yes......

    otherwise, remove cast in photoshop or use a pure digital solution

    If the printing machine is not on "AUTO mode" the lab operator will always remove color cast for you.

    I would be please to send my slides over to any lab who can correct the color cast on slides.

    Actually, if you are willing to pay, it's possible.

    1. Scan the slide at a very high resolution, like 4000dpi.
    2. Do your correction.
    3. Output the digital file back onto a slide using film recorder.

    #3 will cost you like $40 per slide.
