Thread: could any optical filters help to increase aperture of a lens?

  1. #1

    Question could any optical filters help to increase aperture of a lens?

    Can special filters be made big to catch more light and compress then feed into the lens? Let's say 2X diameter then any lens can gain 4 stops of light.. i am noobie in optics.
