    Filters for a Durst M605

    After a 2 year hiatus from the darkroom I will finally reenter "The Wet Side" this weekend. Can't waite!
    Just thinking about the type of filtration I used in the past. My standard routine is to mount Kodak multi-grade filters "under the lens". Am I loosing anything by not purchasing a set of filters to mount "above" the lens?

    Thanks in advance,
    Mike

    The below-the-lens filters work, but their condition can have a dramatic effect on the quality of the image. Using filters that fit above the negative will enable you to get the full quality from the neg and the lens.

    If you keep the below-the-lens filters clean and scratch-free, you won't see the difference. The are actually better fort split-grade printing or filtration changes, because they can be changed with less 'disturbance' to the setup.

    Just make sure they're clean! Personally I use above lens filtration, even for split-grade techniques. BTW, good to see you here on APUG Ralph. Really enjoyed your collaboration with Chris Woodhouse in ' Way beyond monochrome'. Regards, Blighty
