    How many of you still use contrast filters

    The under the lens kind? Of course they're a dust magnet but they work. I have an old set of DuPonts that get really low, the yellows being deeper than the Ilford or Kodak equivalents.

    I use a set of Agfa CC filters. I'm thinking of cutting them down to fit in the filter drawer of my L138S, but haven't got around to it yet.

    I bought an Ilford Multigrade head. So my filters are now built into the enlarger.

    contrast filters

    I use filters in printing. I have Ilford 11x11 filters cut down to 8x10. With my 8x10 Elwood enlarger they are put on top of the glass in the negative carrier.
    I cut the #3 smaller than I should have so it goes under the lens. No fancy filter holder for it. I just use tape to keep it in place.

    Ilford and Fuji. I heard they are almost identical though.

    I use the big Ilford filters which go above the condenser in my Beseler 23CII. A great investment and simple to use. My understanding is that they are less of a problem for dust when above the condenser. One of these days, I'd really like to get a dichroic head, but for the moment, the filters are groovy.

    My ancient Beseler dichro head on the 45MXT does not have the magenta capacity needed for a lot of things, so I supplement it with the old style filters. For 35mm I ususlly use a Beseler 35 which has a convenient holder for below the lens filters. Because they are so handy, I use an Ilford filter set there.
