KODAK WRATTEN FILTERS

KODAK Filters

Kodak filters are available in more than 100 varieties. Gelatin filters are for use with image-forming light beams. KODAK WRATTEN Gelatin Filters are available in the sizes listed on this site. Minimum order quantities may apply. Orders for large quantities of filters or filters not normally stocked will require up to an 8-week lead-time. KODAK WRATTEN Gelatin Filters are separated into the 7 types listed below.

Kodak Basic Color Filters are used to alter the color wave length of light. Special Dye Color Filters incorporate rare dye materials and are also used to alter the color wavelength of light. Color Conversion Filters enable significant adjustments in the color temperature of the illumination as required (e.g., daylight to artificial light). Color Conversion Filters control color by attenuating principally the red, green, or blue part of the spectrum. Can be used to make changes in the color balance of images recorded on color films, or compensate for deficiencies in the spectral quality of a light source. Light Balancing Filters enable minor adjustments in the color quality of illumination to obtain cooler (bluish) or warmer (yellowish) color rendering. Infrared Filters are used in infrared photographic applications. Neutral Density No. 96 Filters are used to reduce the intensity of light by a definite ratio, without affecting the tonal rendition of colors. Neutrality is superb only in the visible spectrum.

Kodak Filters

Black & White Photography Filters Filters are often used in black and white photography as black and white are actually produced as tones of gray. Filters are used to make the gray tones look like the original scene. The sky and clouds often blend together in black and white photos as white, so filters are used to separate the two. A red filter can darken blue objects more than white objects. So if you use this filter the sky will look black in the photo and the clouds will still be white.

Color Compensating Filters Color compensating filters are sometimes referred to as CC filters. They are used to adjust the overall color balance received from color films, especially in slide film. Improper color cast can occur in your photos without one of the color compensating filters. The filters are generally used to color balance lights such as fluorescent, tungsten, and mercury-vapor and also to bounce light that is reflected from colored surfaces and objects.
