Hi all.

Couple of questions:

1. Are the kodak wratten gel filters for sale on the Filmtools website good enough for a student 16mm shoot (ha! what isn't???)?

2. If they do the job as well as the rather more expensive glass versions by Lee and Co, would anyone out there know where the heck I can buy them in Ireland, or failing that, the UK? Even somewhere like France would be a start. For some reason, Filmtools won't ship to Ireland, but will ship to the UK, because they say we've a different credit card system. We don't, by the way, but they still won't ship.

Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

regards,

Hi,

Wratten gel filters are usually placed behind the lens. If you have a Bolex there is a little slot. They are very delicate. I used 1 today on a Cooke 20-100 Zoom, there is a holder inside the lens. Very useful if you want to travel lite! There should be no obvious quality loss, but will move the focus 1/3 of the thickness of the gel forward. Not a problem except for very wide lenses, at a wide apeture.

The best company to speak to is Kodak where you live.

Check ebay. There are often large lots of unused ones.
