Can i use multigrade paper without filters, or will i need some graded paper?

    I see Ilford sell under lens filters but do these actually "fit" the lenses or do you need to hold them under the lens yourself while the lamp is?

    Thanks
    does your one look like this?

    is number 6 not where filters go?

    my apologies , I see you wrote `standard'..I tried under lens filters [ Ilford] on a Meopta Opemus and they did not fit very well, just check somehow first before you purchase.

    Another option is to find a Cokin A series ring to screw on to the front of the lens (if it is threaded) and slip the holder over it. Not a perfect fit, but it works for some lenses when the three legged spider doesn't work out.
