    Can you still get colour filter packs for printing?

    I don't have a colour head for my enlarger - is it still possible to buy colour filter packs for above the lens filter drawers? Anyone know of a supplier, preferably in the UK?

    Thanks

    Ilford still makes polycontrast filters that will fit into an enlarger drawer. Freestyle, in the U.S. sells them, so I assume you can buy them in the U.K. too. Don't know where though.

    are you looking for filters for printing color, or filters for black and white
    ?

    It appears the OP is seeking filters to print color. Would a set of Wratten gel filters work?

    Hi,

    I would try places like Ag Photographic, Keyphoto (http://www.keyphoto.com/priceguide/) or Silverprint.

    That is really an inefficient and expensive way of printing color. It might be a good idea to look for a color head for your enlarger.

    Oh well, I thought I'd check. Unfortunately I don't think the colour heads are still made for my enlarger. Thanks for the replies.

    I have a couple of sets. THey aren't real heavy and shouldn't cost a fortune to mail. Pm me if interested.

    Thanks for the offer ann, but I just did a search again on eBay and found a reasonably-priced colour head for my enlarger after all! There suddenly seem to be lots of enlargers coming on the market again. I've been looking for months with no joy, then two came along at the same time.
