    Default respirator/gasmask?

    I went to La Salle last year , and a photography student told me that he wore a mask with the filter canister whenever he was in the dark room.

    I did like to get one too. Where could i find one?

    the N95 mask is only a particulate filter, doesn protect u against fumes and chemical vapors.
    You can consult ur friend who is using the respirator with the canister if there was some chemical that necessitated the level of protection ?

    get face masks with activated carbon layer. During the heavy haze period >10years back i used it. a lot of the smell got filtered out too. can't find it as easy in stores now though.
