    Filter for Ektar lens (Graflex SLR)

    I just got a 4x5 Super D today. The 190 ektar doesn't have any thread filter. I measured it, almost 43mm.
    Which kind of filter can I put ? Snap on ? Would a filter holder fit ?
    Any advice from Graflex owner ?

    You can get a Kodak Series VII filter holder and use series VII filter. ( or is that Series VI, not sure) You might check over on graflex.org, there should be someone who would have the right answer.

    Mine had a slip on filter adapter that took a series filter. I don't remember if it was a series VI or VII and cannot look because I sold it last year.

    I still have pictures on line, a link to the one with the filter on it is here: http://camera35.com/Selling/Graflex_...DS_016_jpg.htm

    Guillaume,

    The Series VI filters are 43mm wide, the Series VII is 53. The adapter is the real issue. I have a 44mm series VI push on adapter I can send you for postage, and may even have a 43. PM me if interested.

    By the way, that 190 Ektar is one of my favorite lenses on 4x5.

    I have a Graflex Super D in 3-1/4x4-1/4. It has the 152mm Ektar. Series VII, 1-11/16 inch (42.5mm) Adapter ring. I believe that the 190mm Ektar takes the same.

    I love the support on this board. I wasn't sure, but I felt that someone would have the right answer. My Series B 2x3 takes a Series VI adapter, not sure what diameter the adapter is.

    The 127mm Ektar I have takes a Series VI. I sold a Series VII hood here a week ago for $10. Don't have a lens that large.

    The Kodak Series VII 42.5mm adapter rings come up fairly often on eBay. One sold about two weeks ago.

    I have some slip on filter adapters of various size. I will see if I have about 43mm in size. This is the outside diameter of the lens barrel?
