Hi there is the following acceptable:

I have a Series 9 filter holder for the front of my Angenieux 12-120. I am planning on using this to hold a ND filter. However I also need an 85 filter, but the holder will not accomodate the two at once due to thickness.

I am planning on using a gel filter cut to size for the holder as the thickness of this is such that I could fit it and the ND together.

Is this OK?

Cheers

Matt

It would be better to get some 85ND combo filters. Wratten Gels are rather fragile, so it may wear out quickly, and they are rather expensive, especially cut to a Series 9 size.

Or get a mattebox so you can use two filters.

Just don't use lighting gels.

Thanks very much for that David.

It is a proper camera gel filter. It is a temporary measure really because I don't have time to get hold of a combi filter.

Thanks
Matt
