Samigon Multigrade Filter Set  3 x 3"

Contrast control with multigrade and variable contrast black & white photographic papers can be achieved in several ways. One of the most widely used ways is through the use multigrade or variable contrast hand filters.

A magenta filter absorbs green light and transmits blue;
A yellow filter absorbs blue light and transmits green.
In this way, high and low contrast images can be made.

Samigon Multigrade Filters  expand the range of black and white paper emulsion into 7 contrast levels. 1, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, 3 1/2, 4, .with the lowest filter number corresponding to the softest contrast.

Set of 7 graded extra thick 3" filters in individual pocket case. Filters may be trimmed with scissors to fit filter drawer of almost any enlarger.  They may be used with Kodak Polycontrast, Ilford Multigrade, or any variable grade black an white paper.

Multigrade filters are very easy to use: no complicated calculations are needed when changing from one filter to another. The exposure time for filters 00 - 31/2 is the same; that for filters 4 - 5 is double.

        I am a photography student, and I just set up my own darkroom. The filters work great, and were very affordable!

            Filters work like they are supposed to. Were too big for enlargers at school but this was fixed by cutting them down with scissors.

              The filters come in this neat little booklet that helps keep everything organized. My enlarger required me to cut about 1/8 of an inch off of two sides. This would have been easier with flimsier filters. You can still cut them with heavy duty scissors.

              For the price, this filter set can't be beat. Unfortunately, the filters are a little large for my 3"X3" filter carrier. But they do the job, and their large size makes it easy to hold them by hand under the lense if necessary. This set works just as well as others I've used costing three times more.
