recomended filters for red/pink color faded films?

#1 by Eric Koester , Sun Feb 04, 2024 2:07 am

What are recommended color filters to counteract color faded films that are red/pink?
Do you use only 1 color filter, or multiple?
Thanks for your advice!
Eric

Wenn Sie hier auf Links zu eBay klicken und einen Kauf tätigen, kann dies dazu führen, dass diese Website eine Provision erhält.

I bought some film feels from China I think, off eBay. Has 4 A4 sheets in bluetones. Then you can choose depending on amount of fade. The lighter shades willprovide more light output

But I prefer the old 3 shade cyan filters that I also got off eBay, many years ago. Can not find them on eBay anymorr sadly.

This is how they made a difference.

These filters were used in night clubs and theatres , film studios for flood lighting film sets. A company called lee filters or roscoe supply these products, maybe online now, some of the online disco suppliers also will have these, but diachroics are much better and made of glass and will allow more light through the lens, just google and you will find some leads..........

What colors specifically?
A blue such as a 80A, 80B or 80C?
Or a cyan to couteract the magenta?

Thanks!

Im no expert on this but it does depend on how much fade a print has,
I would have thought that cian would be a good start and maybe a filter with more blue if the fade takes a deeper grip. Its a bit of a trial and error thing. I did try the cheap gels myself but as Paul said, these do cut quite a bit of light out, i havent tried the proper glass filters yet as i tend to sell off films with fade but i may try a glass filter to see how it goes.
Let us know how you get on Eric.

Personally I like the three cyan filters I bought off eBay, on the pictures above, all three are in effect. But it is nice to be able to mix them I feel
