Cokin CA020 Overview

The Cokin A Series 80A Light Balancing Filter is designed for use with a Cokin A Series Filter Holder. It is uniform in color and with a mired shift value of -131, can be applied to purposely create a cool cast over an entire image. This effect can be obtained under daylight when this filter is used on a film camera system with daylight film installed, or on a digital camera system with its daylight white balance setting selected. The Cokin A Series 80A Light Balancing Filter is also useful for balancing light sources with a color temperature of 3200K for daylight film, which is designed to accurately reproduce colors under 5500K light sources.

This filter is made of durable, optical resin (CR39). When used, the Cokin A Series 80A Light Balancing Filter's 0.2 density darkens the entire image by 0.6 stops. This reduction in exposure can be compensated for by adjusting the aperture setting of the lens it is placed on, or the shutter speed of the camera being used.

The greater the difference between the color temperatures they are designed to correct for under 5500K, light balancing filters for daylight film are considered to be progressively stronger in their effect when used to cool a daylight image.
