    Can you think of any other makes/or models of these older "visual principle" densitometers? I read reference to one made my Marshall, though I suspect that these Kodak model's were sold in disproportionately large numbers.

    There is a color probe in my closed-loop enlarger head that uses filters. Here are the numbers. However,I think those special dye filters may cost more than your drvice is worth.

    Color Probe Green Filter = Wratten 99 (non-Special Dye)
    Color Probe Blue Filter = Wratten 47B (Special Dye)
    Color Probe Red Filter = Wratten 92 (Special Dye)

    Thanks ic-racer.

    Indeed, wratten 99 & 92's are hard to find and I don't have those. I wonder if using red 29 & green 58 would give inaccurate results using this densitometer.

    I use 98, 99 and 70. There is an alternate set that I can probably look up.

    Here is yet another set of three (these are the three in my Tobias color transmission densitometer):
    Wratten #92 (red)
    Wratten #93 (green)
    Wratten #94 (blue)

    I'd probably just cut some little pieces out of a Rosco sample pack (if they still give those away).

    If not free, b&h sell them for something like $6, and the ideas and opportunities you get from looking at them are priceless.

    The website of the Strobist promoted the free swatchbook use for modifying off camera flash, and that killed the free swatch book from Rosco, I believe. There is now a Strobist modified minim selection swatch pack. I would suggest thet you would benefit from the full book.

    There is a threatrical swatch book, and a cinematography swacth book. Both are useful to photographers.

    If you are european based, then a Lee, a british gel vendor's swatch book may be easier to source.
    my real name, imagine that.

    Yeah, I have a few Nixie tubes here somewhere in the shop. Those old beauties were interesting.

    I brought one of these about 20 years ago at a photo swap meet. At the time I called Kodak and they sent me an instruction manual for it. I still have the densitometer, and probably have the manual somewhere. If you can't find one on-line send me an E-mail and I'll scan it (if I can find it).
