Ilford 12 x12" Multigrade Printing Filters are used for printing the Ilford Multigrade range of papers on black-and-white enlargers.  Ilford produces complete sets of filters for all contrast grades in half grade steps.

The twelve multigrade filters are in sets and are numbered 00-5 in .5 steps. The lowest number corresponds to the softest contrast.

Multigrade filters are supplied in 3, 6 and 12" square sizes to fit most enlarger's filter drawers, or as a set of mounted hard plastic filters for below-lens use in a filter holder.

Multigrade filters do not require any recalculation of exposure times when changing between grades 0 and 3, grades 4 to 5 simply requiring twice the exposure.

Easy way to control print contrast using variable contrast paper
Exposure time for filters 00-3.5 is the same; that for filters 4-5 is double

    Comments about Ilford Multigrade Printing Filter (Grade 4) (12 x 12"):

    I purchased this with the intent to use it in the head of an Aristo 8x10 enlarger. Prior to using this the enlarger was absurdly overpowered. However this filter has taken it down enough of a notch to make it manageable. I purchased this with a #2 and will purchase the #3 when it becomes available so I have a full set.
