    I've got a nice Retina 1a but could use some filters to enhance my black and white images. Not much luck so far on e-bay, B&H, Adarama, etc. Thought I'd give this a try.

    I know you are in the USA but try Googling SRB Griturn which is in UK. They will make almost any filter size you want and whatever fitting/colour or any other description.

    another option is a push or clamp on hood which takes series filters.

    Are you sure the filter size is exactly 22mm? I only ask because Kodak marketed Series V adapters in 22.5 for screw-ons, as did Tiffen and others. I have a few of them, but I don't have 22. That doesn't mean they weren't made, I just don't have any. i do have some slip-on Series V as well, in 22, 23.5 and up. Measure the OD and send me a PM.

    Thanks for the responses.

    When I learned to look for "series v", I can find the filters on e-bay fairly easily.
