Product Highlights
  • #8 Filter for General B&W Contrast
  • Rugged Black Brass Filter Ring
  • High Quality Schott Glass

The B+W 43mm #8 Yellow (022) Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film. This medium yellow filter slightly darkens skies, helps to cut through haze, and improves overall contrast. It is the most common contrast filter for black and white photography, producing an accurate tonal range and compensating for the blue sensitivity of panchromatic film. There is a 2x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 1 stop for normal exposure.

B+W filters are constructed from high quality Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. They feature a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

        Comments about B+W 43mm #8 Yellow (022) Filter:

        You can always trust the quality of B+W filters. A costly high quality lens is only as good as the glass in front of it. You won't be disappointed.
