Karl Lee Posted May 4, 2014 Share Posted May 4, 2014 I've read through a few threads in this forum regarding the finer points of 85 vs. 85B filters for filming in daylight with tungsten balanced film. I've noticed that on cans of tungsten balanced film, Kodak specifies the use of an 85 filter for daylight color conversion, while Tiffen's website specifies an 85B as the proper filter for balancing tungsten film to daylight. Specifically, Tiffen lists the 85 as converting daylight to 3400K, while the 85B converts daylight to 3200K. So, who to believe for optimal results...Kodak or Tiffen? Is the 200K color temperature difference pretty much a moot point? I've filmed plenty of super 8 using an external 85 with great results, but since I'm going to start shooting some S16 and am in the market for an 85 or 85B filter to use with my SR3, I'm just trying to decide which one to purchase.
