    KODAK WRATTEN -V- B+W: TMax 100

    I working with 4X5 TMax 100 now and noticed in the Kodak Publication F4016 the reference to KODAK WRATTEN Filter factoring and exposure. I have B+W filters.

    How do the Wratten Factors compare to the B+W X factor? I cannot find any reference to Wratten at the Schneider site.

    An example:
    My B+W Red filter is B+W #90. It has an exposure factor (X) of 5 which means to open the shutter 2,5 stops. As I understand it.

    The Wratten No. 25 (red) simply says open 3 stops.

    For TMax 100 opening the lens for the B+W #90 3 stops is not the answer... I can prove it.

    Thanks for for your thoughts,

    If you still have the data sheet from B+W it should have the Wratten equivalent on it. Well,at least their old ones had it.
    Regarding the exposure factors, as they say YMMV.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    The difference in color sensitivity of the T-Max films and conventional grained films, may cause a difference in the factor for some colors of filters.

    There's some potentially useful info here.

    I agree with Jim Noel that spectral curves of specific films play a role in the results with filters.
