A long time ago.
It helps for pre-visualizing in BW.
The dark amber gel pretty much eliminates all colors.
Everytime I use my Zone VI camera I also use the filter.
But I did not touch that camera in years now.
Just don't have enough time....

The Kodak Wratten gel #90, is basically the same thing. Works fine for pre-visualizing B&W rendition in a color scene, with ambient light. (Obviously, any flash added, is sorta hard to see.)

It just allows you to see the tonal reflectance values, visually, so you can tell if the scene will render as you wish. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Never liked Cokin filters, and have no idea what they have in their line, these days. The wratten will drop into holders, in the same way. Don't know that I would rely on metering that way, though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Metering through the viewing filter is not the same as through a filter you are actually applying to the image you make.

The viewing filter simply gives you an idea of how the scene will look "colorless", and to meter through it, could be very misleading, in terms of actual exposure. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Here's a metering tip from an old shooter, which has stood me in good sted over the years. Works with any sort of reflective meter, spot meter or not. Many things in nature are within a half stop or so of medium gray; clear blue sky (not near the sun!), green grass and much other green foliage, gray stones, gray roadway surfaces (not sidewalks) and light asand many medium shirt colors, such as medium blue or green. One or more of thosse can usuallybe found in any outdoor scene. Just make sure what you meter is in the same light as your primary sucject.
