Snapping a photo these days generally means taking out your smartphone to capture whatever is in front of you. One might rightly say that the best camera is the one that you actually have available. However, as has been the case for roughly 200 years, photographers are constantly experimenting with new and sometimes unusual techniques to enhance their craft.
One such way to get a great photo is through the use of filters, and if you’d like a rather wild adjustable effect for your shots, then look no further than the Psychedelic Mice Wave-Plate Camera Filter from Wallfacer Design. The device is a combination of two rotatable lens filters, one of which is a fairly typical linear polarization setup, while the other is made using a .15-.21mm thick sheet of Muscovite mica. The assembly is 52mm in size, though it can be adapted to other sizes as needed.
Using this, one can reportedly “transform reflections, pure white light, displays, etc. into a rainbow effect, leaving everything else normal.” Per the product reviews, it looks like a lot of fun for experimentation, especially in bright light. You can see the effect in the clip below, and there are more photos via the product listing.
