question

Why do they call this a White-Light filter? It captures a yellow/orange image.
Asked by: Dean W.
The light from the sun is white light, as can be seen by using a prism to separate the colors (ROYGBIV) making up the white light. Yes, with these filters, the sun is somewhat orange after the white light passes through the filter film. That is a characteristic of the film used for the filter. I've used Baader solar film in which the sun appears with no color, and I've used other Baader solar film yielding the orange color.

question

Will this fit a Nikon Coolpix L120?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, I used it on a similar Nikon - it only is held on by the cardboard that you fold around the front of your lens, so unless you tape it it will fall off if you point the camera downwards. Using only the LCD screen to compose the shot for safety, you can see the sun through the filter and zoom in on it and photograph it. I could see some sunspots on the image.
