    Kodak Pictorial Filters (Series IV, V and VI)

    However, the answer to the original question remains a mystery.

    Yes, the standard Wratten series filters are used by many and have had
    much written about them. The question is in regard to "Kodak Pictorial Filters".
    This is the name on the box and on the filter ring itself. (see images)

    One guy is selling them by the case.

    Again, from what I've found, no information exists on the internet on these
    filters unless I'm just missing it.

    Thanks once again!
    You're being too specific... These are the same thing... Wratten yellow filters, I own some series V yellow and red, the box does say "pictorial" but they are just standard filters, probably called "pictorial" for marketing.

    Stone, that's what I was looking for. Every wratten filter I've ever seen says wratten on the ring. I've never seen "Pictorial" on a ring or a box. When my internet search for "Kodak Pictorial Filters" returned zero results, it seemed like this could be a different filter, or, it could be the same animal with a different (and less used) name.

    Wratten filter "marketing".

    Thanks for the shout!

    Well I'm no expert, but I can't see the difference between the pictorial and non pictorial.

    Am confused. You mentioned that they're the same thing, but you can see the difference between them.

    ???

    Can't as in, both yellows look the same to my eye, and never noticed a difference in the neg between the two filters (have both) I'm sure it's just all add words

    Apologies!

    For some reason I read it as "CAN see the difference" rather than "CAN'T see the difference".

    Much better now!

    "Pictoral Yellow" probably sounded a lot less scary than Wratten #12 to your average Joe.

    "Pictorial filter" Just another marketing ploy by the capitalists at the former GYF.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
