Whilst one might purchase a roll of 250D and 200T and test this out as I would, as it happens, I have been wrung out of all my money the past three months. So, rather than try to self hypothesize in my head, I may as well put the proverbial nail in the coffin in an attempt to suppress my ADHD and OCD. Which leads me to my questions... A) Color-wise, what can one expect when using a tungsten balanced stock with an 85 or 85B filter, rather than simply daylight stock aside from the two-third stop of light? B) To further elaborate on question A, normally how significant is this color change? C) Lastly, For a pre eighties era film style, do you recommend using daylight balanced stock for all exterior daytime scenes, or go as far as to strictly use tungsten stock with an 85/85B filter for all exterior daytime scenes, a very common practice of a tungsten dominant era? Until of course I actually go out and test this myself I won't really have an answer I can be one hundred percent satisfied with, but rather one I can at least accept for a short while. And yes, I am aware of the 200 kelvin difference of the 85 vs 85B filter and will be putting this to the test as well once I can economically prioritize doing a film test.
Hi Everybody, I'm shooting some of Pro8mm's Ektachrome 100D on my Canon 514 XL-S. My question is about the daylight/tungsten filter. I've heard from almost all people that I need to have the filter switched to the lightbulb tungsten setting. As counterinuitive as it seems, I've heard that it actually correectly exposes the Ektachrome that way. I just want to be positive about this, and would really appreciate any personal experience shooting on Pro8's stock on this camera. Thank you!
For Sale: two Tiffen 4.5" round filters, old stock, like new in box. 85B-POL & FL-B, $95 for both, shipping included to lower 48. PayPal preferred. Filters are in their original tissue, inside their original Tiffen cloth/velcro pouches, in their original boxes. Filters are +/- 20 years old, but have been stored, unused, in my equipment closet at 8500' in the cool, dry Colorado climate. No scratches, no cleaning marks, no rim dings. I am a retired still photographer, and had rigged the mat box for my 8x10 view camera to accept 4.5" rounds. Had quite a few, but I've sold most of them with the camera. Since tungsten-rated sheet film has disappeared, these two were 'orphans'. 85B-POL combines daylight conversion filter for tungsten film with polarizer in one filter. FL-B is for shooting tungsten stock under fluorescent lighting. Tiffen's current 4.5" 85B-POL is $414 at B&H, (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/367434-REG/Tiffen_412SR85UPOL_4_5_Round_Combination_85.html). Their current FL-B is $196.
