Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE:EK) has
introduced several new lens filters for motion picture cameras, including an
improved Kodak Wratten 2 Optical filter and a new series of Kodak Wratten 2
Carbon ND filters. These filters, which undergo a special precision coating
that improves all of the filters? qualities, continue to set the industry
standard for reliability, batch-to-batch consistency, rigidity and durability.
The new lenses are more rigid and durable, and easier to handle while offering
the same spectral transmission of current Wratten Gelatin Filters.

?Photographers, cinematographers, engineers, and scientists rely on the
Wratten 2 filters for analytical consistency, as well as the ease of use for
critical color correction,? says Steve Hallatt, motion picture accessories
and services manager for Kodak?s Entertainment Imaging Division. ?The Wratten
filters provide consistent, optimal performance, which is critical for those
whose work requires realistic and creative effects/applications.?

In addition to the new Wratten Filters, a variety of calibration tools and
targets are now available for purchase directly through Kodak and it
distribution partners. Previously sold by Tiffin, these tools can now be found
in the KODAK PROFESSIONAL Stockhouse Equipment and Supplies Price Catalog.
