I'm using an Eclair ACL 16mm camera and I'm looking to rent an 85 filter set. What's the difference between "series 9", 4x4, 4 1/2 round, 138 round, etc in terms of filters? How do they mount on the camera?
Any information would be helpful. I certainly don't want to rent the wrong ones.

I would try to avoid using behind the lens filters. They shift the focus and degrade the image. I think front lens filters with step-up or step-down rings will provide the best quality image and would be easiest for you. An 85 filter set is generally round, and you would need to rent a matte box to use the drop-in/slide-in square filters.
