95mm TO 4X4

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have a Docter Optics 360 6.7 Tessar which takes 95mm filters. Tiffen makes a series of 4x4 Grad ND filters 2mm and 4mm thick for a very reasonable price. Is there any difference between the filters except for the thickness?

Is there an adaptor out there that I can screw onto my lens or another 95mm filter attached to the lens which will hold a 4x4 filter such as the Tiffens I've described? My thinking is that if I can slide the Grad ND up and down in the holder that I can frame any way I want and adjust the Grad ND filter accordingly.

Is there something like this in existence, or would this be work for Mr. Grimes?

Bring your filter into a camera store and try the Cokin P holder. There are others available but the names escape me. Cheers

4x4 filter holders might cause vignetting on your lens with a 95 mm thread. You can use scotch tape with your 4x5 or 4x6 filters, or get a Cokin X-Pro filter holder which has a 120(?) mm opening.

Lee Filters makes a 95mm adapter ring, and a holder for 4" wide filters. I'd recommend a 4x6" graduated filter, which will allow for more leeway adjusting your grad line up and down.
