    They are toy because their holder is a POS that gets in the way of the lens and lens holder. Especially with the 50mm lenses that need a recessed lens carrier. They are also gelatine filters so it dosen't take much to screw them. So they MUST be kept in their container unless you want to replace them ever so often.

    Yep, Tony's "the Man" when it comes to De Vere. He's helped me out a couple of times.

    Well KHB have come back £32 each plus P+P, they recommended calling Odyssey as well. Pity they are not talking to me. Best price still seems to be Lightwave. Had a go last night with the Ilford filters versus the head, strange results, which I couldn't get my head around so will have a go today instead with VC paper.I'll do a grade 4 print from the head and the filters and seeing the difference. TBH though there dose not seem to be any real noticeable fade with this head so I reckon the filters have been changed. And £90 for a set at the cheapest, it seems a bit of an extravagant waste so probably leave it for now. Yeah I know I could get away with just replacing one filter i.e. the magenta but it don't seem to bad, just have to put up with the crappy holder that comes with the Ilford filters for B&W's and use the colour head for just that, colour.

    Check out: http://www.edmundoptics.com . See item: NT46-141 . The price is $75 for a set of 50mm x 50mm filters. If I remember, that'd give four filters of each of the colors. OF course you'd have to cut the glass.
