Series filters were widely used on vintage cameras for decades.   Some large series filters are still being produced today for use with cine lenses and super telephotos.   The main type of series filter system uses an adapter which attaches to the lens.  This adapter will either screw onto lens threads or slip on and over the lens collar.  A filter that matches the series size drops into the adapter and a threaded retaining ring screws onto the front threads of the adpter to hold the filter in place.   Some series filters thread directly onto the lens but it is important to know that the thread pitch used on vintage lenses does not match the thread pitch used on modern lenses.   Do not use series threaded filters on modern lenses and vice versa.  Some filters have a slip-on adapter built onto them.   These are usually camera specific.  A few rare adapters use a set screw to tighten around the lens collar.

Types of Connection

 

Adapters

     There were hundreds of different sized series adapters produced over several decades.  The system is extremely versatile.  Some adapters are labeled with thread size or collar size, but some aren't.   Many adapters use a code # or code letter for identification.  Each manufacturer used their own system.  Below is an incomplete lists of codes.   These codes and measurements may not be 100% accurate.   These adapters came with male and/or female threads though female threads are rare.   Ednalite adapters came in very precise sizes compared to Tiffen.  If you are having trouble fitting a Tiffen adapter, try Ednalite.

Dealing w/ Tarnish

     Series adapters tarnish (patina) when exposed to the elements.   Tarnish is a metal's natural defense and provides a rust resistant surface.   That's a good thing, but sometmes tarnish can build up and cause the threads to bind.   It can also be unattractive.

IMG_6366.JPG

Before and after cleaning.

     Fair warning:  Removing tarnish is a time consuming job.   You will need Brasso, many cotton swabs, a paper towel, a scrubbing pad and either alcohol or lemon juice/water.  Multiple applications will be required in order to remove most of the patina.   On the rings you see above, I made dozens of passes with dozens of swabs and scrubbing.  Each ring took 30 minutes or more to clean.   The swabs will get soaked with gunk quickly but don't assume you are near done.   It is important to rinse off the ring periodically during cleaning with alcohol or lemon juice/water mix.  
     If you are able to completely clean an item and want to keep it from tarnishing again, you will need to polish it with metal polish.

Bay Filters (Bayonet)

     Bay filters mount onto the lens with a bayonet connection.    There are several sizes and several mount variations.  This is a cross reference for some of the cameras that use the bayonet filter sytem.   Rollei and Hasselblad have their own systems.  Zeiss also has their own Bay 56 line of filters.   Bay 1-4 are Rollei system and Bay 50-104 are the Hasselblad system which uses the measurement in mm as the bay #.  Rollei Bay sizes are often non specific as it is unclear where to measure.  Zeiss also made Bay 56 filters for Contarex cameras.   Some filters have bayonet fronts and some have smooth or threaded fronts.  There may be adapters available that allow you to step up to modern or series filters as a money saver.  Bay filters can be very expensive.
