Good filter!

This filter is a good buy. Its well made and performs its task. The only thing I didn't like was the case it came in. Not very protective. There is a 2mm thick piece of foam on one side, and then a thick product book on the other that keeps it from moving. Take out the product book and it can slide around alot. Still a good buy though. Especially for the price.


A great trick to get a good color balance indoors with daylight film

The item I received looks like new old stock from the 1990s, which is fantastic! Attached pic. This is a really solid heavy filter that does exactly what it's supposed to do: adjust the color balance for using daylight film indoors. It's very difficult to buy film anymore that has an indoor color balance for tungsten lights. Note: the modern "warm" LED light bulbs now in most peoples' homes are similar to tungsten bulbs in light spectrum, so this filter also applies to modern indoor lighting even though we don't have tungsten lightbulbs anymore. The one downside of using daylight film with a blue filter, though, is that the filter cuts out a solid stop and a half to two stops of light. That means you'll probably have to shoot with wide aperture and long shutter times, necessitating a tripod. Or use a flash :) My digital camera's built in white balance correction works better on its own without a filter, so I'd say this is mostly just for real film photography.

Great for Theatrical pictures

This filter is a must for anyone taking pictures in an auditorium or theatre setting, using normal daylight film. The 80A corrects the color in your photographs to look more natural. Any parent taking pictures of their child in a school play or awards night should use this filter to get the best quality photos.
