Hello,

I picked up a Ilex-Caltar/Calumet lens (210mm f5.6) that is in perfect condition, hoping to use on my Super Speed Graphic.

What I did not notice is that this lens has no threads in the barrel to accept a filter.

I thought that I could find a clamp-on ring (the OD appears to be 62mm) that would allow me to "step up" to 67mm filters. Or, perhaps a lens hood that clamps on, having threads for a ring or filter. I would think that these were relatively popular lenses at one time and that there was some adapter permitting filter use....?

Unfortunately, I cannot find anything out there (e-bay, Calumet Camera, other camera sites).

Any advice would be most appreciated. I really don't want to use this lens without protecting the glass, also would prefer to use some filters with B&W film.

Thanks in advance for the expertise!

Emil

hey Emil
the one I have is a # 62 S S 8 TIFFEN adapter ring SERIES 8 for filters & hoods
now it has set screws & I had one that a slip on can't find it now but I thank that it was
a Kodak AND you will need to look for SERIES 8 as SERIES 7 are only about 58mm

Kodak listed a series VIII 62 mm (2-7/16") slip ring, so there may be some of these floating around on the 'bay or at camera shows. Don't know about fitting your 67 mm filters. Good luck!
