              Comments about Tiffen 49mm Red 1 #25 Glass Filter for Black & White Film:

              I use this filter to increase the contrast in my black and white film photos. I use it on a few different lenses but mostly my 45mm Rokkor f/2. If you want a dark sky and white clouds then this is what you need.
