K-3 16mm Filter help

Recommended Posts

I just received my K-3 along with 3 different filters, just curious on all three do. I'm aware the yellow one would be an 85B filter, though still don't know enough but anyone of them. 

Cheers !

The Yellow filter is for B&W photography, the darker one is a neutral density filter ( all films ) and the other is either a Close-up lens ( check by looking through it ) or a UV filter.

If you are lucky to find an old filter paper catalog, from Cokin for example, then in it you can see a sample of pictures, labelled "with filter" and "without filter" Very handy!

A good link is below:


If you explore the filter types on this page each one comes with a description of what it does.

A pretty handy site.
