    Ilford used to make a "Pan Viewing Filter" , http://photographyattic.com/product-51, I have one somewhere that I bought about fifty years ago that I'd almost forgotten about

    You can test how the filters will affect the image by placing them in front of Your cell phone camera - switch it to B&W mode from the menu and try Your filters.

    With best regards.

    You don't need a "dedicated" one, just one that has a black and white mode and a preview. Most of them do.

    If I may quote St Ansel (paraphrased ) " Use the viewing filter by lifting it to the eye and alternate the filtered,and unfiltered view without keeping the filter in place for any length of time. The eye will accommodate the filters effect and the preview effect will be lost ".

    Wratten #90, I think.

    I don't think of it as very useful, myself. But maybe worth a shot if you can get one for cheap.

    I found them to be somewhat useless. In short order, you'll know which filter you need, before you enven look through the viewfinder. It only takes a bit of experience to "see" and pre-visualize the negative and print. if in doubt, slap a deep yellow #15 on your lens and blast away. Are you a scenic or street shooter?
