Can anyone throw any light on the drop in filters which were used with the 12"/305mm Kodak Portrait lens. I belive I have heard them referred to as Kodak Series 1X. Is this correct and what form do they take? Are they just discs, or do they have some sort of metal surround or mount. Anyone have any kicking around. I would quite like to source a yellow one.

Kodak doc from http://www.cameraeccentric.com/html/info/kodakportrait/kodakportrait.html
says you need a Series IX as you thought. Series IX is 3 1/4" or 83.5mm according to googled pages. The filters appear to be surrounded by a metal ring, not threaded in the drop-in case.

Alternatively, see if you can find a series 9 filter adapter which will let you use gels.

Also consider gelling your lights.

Still looking, anyone in Europe have one of these in fair fettle, they want to part with. Shipping seems to be a problem from the U.S.A.
