    Colour corrective filters

    I have a Meopta Opemus 4 enlarger which I have been using for B&W printing. However, I would soon like to start doing my own C41 developing and RA4 printing.

    The Meopta manual says to do this, I will need colour corrective filters. Unfortunately, I can not find much information on the internet about these.

    Does anyone know anything about these filters, or where I may obtain some from?

    I know a colour enlarger would be more suitable, but changing enlargers isn't really practical for me.

    Thanks

    They were once very common but the widespread use of dichroic colour means t they've became rare. I have an Agfa set but they only worked for Agfa papers, but I may have another set stored at my mothers that are Kodak/Fuji compatible.

    As you spell "Colour" correctly you can have them if I've still got them. Where abouts are you ?

    Another option is to buy the Meopta Colour 3 head which should bolt onto your Opemus 4 with no problems. They turn up on ebay from time to time, you may have to buy an entire enlarger to get the head, but it's a lot cheaper than buying new - Nova sell the head for £165.

    I think Opemus 4 needs Meopta Color 2. The 3 fits Opemus 6.

    I would be interested if you do have them. I knew spelling colour correctly would come in handy one day. I am in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

    check ebay. It's much easier to print with a dichro head though.

    You got away with that one. He could have been Canadian (or an American who could spell properly!).

    No luck Stephen, I found the filters but there's too many missing from the set so it's useless.
