    WTB: Ilford VC Filter Holder

    Anyone in US lower 48 have an extra one collecting dust, with or without setscrews? Don't need the filters, just the holder tray. Please send PM.

    A little pricey unless you already have one, but a Lee filter holder works on an enlarger too.

    Would a Kodak Polycontrast filter holder work for you? If so, you can have it for the price of postage.

    The Kodak Polycontrast holder is the same size and nearly the same shape as the Ilford holder. The Ilford 3”x 3” framed filters fit into my Kodak Polycontrast holder perfectly. Likewise, the Kodak 3” x 3” filters fit into the Ilford holder.

    Ian, thanks for the info.

    Matt, I'm not familiar with how the Kodak holder attaches to the lens. Does it use 3 setscrews to attach to the lens? If not, I may have to rig my arrangement a bit to make it work. I was really hoping to get an Ilford holder since I've already installed the Ilford adapter (little 3-legged gizmo that their holder snaps onto) which is double-back taped to the lens board. I kinda doubt the Kodak holder would interface properly with the Ilford adapter. So I'll take you up on your offer, PM me and we'll work it out. If I can make it work, fine; if not I'd still hope to find an Ilford holder since that will attach without mod.

    Also found that the Cokin A series rings can be used to attach the Ilford holder to a lens - Might also work with the Kodak version.
