X-PRO1: Color Filters vs Color Filters

Out of curiosity I decided to compare digital filters that are part of the camera set-up menu to actual  glass filters.

Minolta MD FY 16mm f/2.8 is not just a great wide angle lens but it also comes with the set of built-in filters.Yes folks, those color filters  are built in and part of the lens! You just need to turn the front ring.

 Normal filter (no color)
You turn the front ring and you get B12 (blue), R60 (red) and Y52 (yellow). Isn't it amazing?


How it works.

 Shot above: camera set to STD + R60 filter on the lens
 Got the point?
=============================================================
 Now, let's see how digital filters compare to real ones:}

 Camera set to By + Normal filter on the lens

Camera set to Br + Normal filter on the lens

Camera set to B + B12(blues) filter on the lens


Camera set to B + Y52 (yellow) filter on the lens
Camera set to B + R60 (red) filter on the lens

Yellow filters comparison

 Red filters comparison

So, what do you think?
