I have the Mini Speed Graphic with a 101mm Kodak Ektar f/4.5 lens dated 1941 (EC). What filter adapter ring diameter and Kodak series filter does this take?

Thank you

Measure the Outside Diameter of the lens then look up that measurement in the size range to find the series number. Search used camera sites for a Series ? that is closest to your lens diameter.

These two posts say its a Series VI (6) 1 1/4 inch/ 31.5mm adaptor.

I suspected as much, but refrained from posting, since I don't have an example of the Ektar to affirm it. But 31.5 mm is a very common slip ring; my 101 Optar and 103 Century (Graphex, i.e., Wollensack) lenses both take this size. OP should have little trouble finding one on the auction site or at a camera show.

Thanks for the feedback. I ordered a 31.5 adapter ring and a couple of Series VI filters and they fit perfectly.
