- Article on Series Filters
References needed: While most series size filters had plain metal mounts. Towards the end of the era of series filters several manufacturers started making screw-in series filters that didn't require a retaining ring or hood to hold them in place. If these are used with some lenses the original hood may not fit. (reference needed.)
