    Filter for Century Graflex

    Hi all,

    I have started shooting with a Century Graflex with the 101mm Graflar lens. I would like to obtain a red filter and possibly a yellow filter for B&W work. I am looking for some insight on how filters work with these old style lenses and where they can be obtained.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    The most common filter system for these cameras was the Kodak Series VI filters and adapters. Other companies such as Tiffen had compatible systems. The Series VI filters have no threads and are "sandwiched" between an adapter and retaining ring. The adapter then slides over the outside of the lens.

    You need a Series VI slip on filter ring and then Series VI filters.

    It looks like 40.5mm screw-in filters will fit as well
