Enabling the use of daylight-balanced film under tungsten-lit conditions, this 80B Color Conversion Filter from Tiffen is a cooling filter used to increase the color temperature from 3400K to 5500K. The blue color of the filter has a filter factor of 3x, requiring an additional 1.6 stops of exposure to achieve normal results.
The filter is constructed using Tiffen's ColorCore technology, which involves lamenting the filter material between two pieces of optical glass, grounding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and mounting within an aluminum alloy ring.
Blue color conversion filter increases color temperature and provides a cooling effect. Converts 3400K to 5500K for using daylight-balanced film under tungsten lighting. Filter factor of 3 requires approximately 1.6 stops of additional exposure to maintain normal results.
ColorCore technology, which permanently laminates the filter material between two pieces of optical glass, maintains image clarity, accuracy, and consistency.
Aluminum filter ring is both lightweight and durable.
It's a great item. However the power of the light is lost when using this. But it does what it's supposed to do and that's to give you a nice white balanced light
I installed this on my camera and now everything has a bluish tint to it. Except when I shoot indoors. I'm using an old 35mm film camera and whenever I use outdoor film indoors, the blue tint seems to go away. Some weird voodoo going on here if you ask me.
I gave this product a 4 star rating because it does exactly what it is supposed to do. I am using it on a Lowel GL-1 portable light to convert youngster to daylight.
