I now have color correction filters again, these gels are guaranteed to add touched of cyan or green back into your faded Eastman, Fuji, and AGFA film stocks.

$6 for a set of three filters sent in a first class envelope.

International folks, please add an extra $2 for postage.

100% money back guarantee if not satisfied!

Paypal and concealed cash accepted.

Watch all of your faded prints again as they probably looked years ago! Some stocks will be better enhanced than others, as each film is different.

Try these out and post your thoughts about them here...

Are these cyan filters? How to fasten them in front of lens?

I'd like some spares, as the cyan filters work miracles for reddish prints. Do you have contrast enhancing ones too? (Not sure if these are the yellow ones)

The need for information is clearly not preventing orders, but it would be interesting to know what they are made of and are they rigid enough to easily fix in front of a lens.

I use a piece of tape and it works fine. I'm good with taking screenshots of films but, should probably leave it to you guys so that you can see the results. I will however post a picture of how I apply it to the lens. This is not a cyan filter and the gel does enhance contrast -- improving "faded" black and white prints on color stock, in my opinion.

This is how I attach it to my Kodak Pageant with a 1.3 zoom lens. The lamp is 750W, it's set on a two blade shutter, and the picture is still very bright. The loss of light is about 2 stops. I was very, very happily surprised that I finally found a correction filter that worked. It wasn't too blue, nor too green...it was just right. In fact it gives it that "golden, warm SP" look.

So a set of 2 costs only $2 + $2 shipping? If that's so, it's very cheap indeed and I'll send you money soon too for a few sets

Thanks

Sent you 20 dollars ... Looking forward to see if there's any difference to the ones I have (3 cyan intensities)

Dirt cheap this was :-)

Any chance of buying a couple of sheets from you? I have a 35mm and the lenses are much bigger :-)

You're welcome Vidar and everyone else who got these. All I've been watching is my old faded films to see what they look like with the filter. I'm way to curious and have been pleased with each one so far.

Everyone should be getting their filters or should have them by now. I took a couple of pictures with my little camera, projected onto a white screen.

I have print of Raging Bull (1980) that is sadly, on fading Eastman stock...or is it really so sadly? Has it's curse been lifted? With the use of this gel that has now switched the film from fading magenta to a much better Sepia tone that actually also looks like black and white. You be the judge of this round...

WITHOUT
 -
WITH GEL

I really kinda liked the film when I first saw it despite its color fading. It also has some Kodachrome shots on the second reel that I could not get to tonight but, will compare as possible. Here is another look:

BEFORE
 -
AFTER

Maybe fading prints are not down for the count? I've seen vast improvements with this filter, I'm testing it every day and here are the first pictures. I've yet to try it combined with other filters. The light output will dim if you do but, this one is the best one I've used on it's own. The brightness dosent diminish but, somehow becomes much more balanced.

CON FILTRO

What do you think?

I could try Gerald's filter on several prints (as I received my two filters some weeks ago). On light red prints, the filter corrects nicely the picture. On medium re prints, I noticed an improvment but the it was still too red, so I put the second filter provided and it was good. On very red film, there is also a good improvment, maybe with a third filter it would be better but the correction is enough for me to make it watchable. An unexpected effect of the filter is that on some copies, it sharpens the picture. It's propbably one of the best value for money deal you can make. Thanks, Gerald.

They're back folks!

After a couple of years without them, I'll be receiving a shipment of color correcting filters.

Take a look at the details above for information about how you can get a pair while supplies last.

Thanks [Smile]

Gerald, the filters must be applied one at a time, and you choose the one most suitable according to the print of film (doing tests)?
And if there is need one above the other? Even two or three simultaneously?
I do not know if I understand correctly. [Smile]

Thank you Gerald, I ordered 2 sets, I know how they work. It's a nicer way to watch faded prints. Glad we can have them through you. Warmest regards, Gilbert
