I have these sunglasses. They're brilliant and I'd love to get a filter made from the same material.
Any suggestions; both realistic and unrealistic ideas welcome

Why not just take your pictures as normal but wear the sunglasses to view them.

Looks like an upside down tobacco grad

It's a filter designed to keep the lens' front element warm to prevent misting-up in cold weather.

Sounds good. But what I want, is one with wipers on it to instantly get rid of rain drops, etc.!
It's more than just a warming filter. I suspect they use the same principles as some ski googles in that it has a cast toward the yellow end of the spectrum which creates a high contrast, although whether that's just an eye/brain thing I don't know. It's not an even cast though. It doesn't affect all wavelengths. There's some jiggery-pokery going on in there too.

If you use a compact camera then you can use the sunglasses, ive done that in the past with exellent results
A good idea, Dave, but unfortunately my 17-40 has a 77mm aperture.
I wonder if Foster Grant do a 1980's style sunglasses with that filter. That might work !
put a UV filter in Tango overnight

Creative, definitely. Also, at last, a very good use for a UV filter.
Its an Acrylic solid amber w/SFM lens
Why not fill out this form for the relevent information and telephone a filter company for matching.
Or sell ya BIG lens and buy a compact i have an old ixus 500 that would do the job nicely...lol
I have a friend who had something similar. It turned out that they were night driving glasses with yellow lenses.
He was wearing them as sunglasses and nearly frying his retinas in the process
