    One handy gadget which I did not know existed until the other day is Cokin filter-holder adapters with clamp screws instead of screw threads. I am just waiting for my order to arrive and look forward finally to using Cokin X-Pro filters with all the weird large-diameter LF lenses I own which have either no filter threads or inch-sized threads.

    B+W filters are about 1/2 the overall ring thickness of Tiffen filters. You can stack 2 filters w/ less chance of vignetting. They also screw on/off much easier than the tiffens. Multicoated versions are available.

    In the photo studios I worked in, that's exactly what assistants did, among myriad other things. However, for color correction to transparency film in the studio, we used gels in filter holders inside the view cameras to avoid flare, as well as always shielding the lens from the light source with a shade, gobo, flag, or whatever other means necessary. There are gel filter holders that clamp to the outside of the lens barrel with spring metal bands and fit inside the typical 4x5 or larger bellows (mostly non-tapered in studio cameras). Gels were kept very clean and replaced when marred or smudged.

    If you have the interior room in a view camera, it's also much easier to carry one filter holder and a packet of different gel filters in the field. It really keeps down the bulk and weight.

    A howp oor cale wi the EOS50 kens aboot aw this, cos a din'nae, ye mey as weel be bletherin dooble dutch as faur as I'm concernt.

    Oh aye, the Tiffen is a little bulkier, so perhaps go for the basic Hoyas, B+W's or Koods. And look for secondhand stuff.

    Cokin does, or did, make a Gel filter holder that slides in like a regular Cokin filter.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.
