Heliopan 710404 Overview

The Heliopan Bay 104 #15 Dark Yellow Glass Filter for Black and White Film is commonly used for a more than noticeable increase in contrast with black and white films.

When a #8 or #12 Yellow isn't enough, the #15 is the next stop. This filter adds a significant amount of contrast to black and white film. And, should this filter not be sufficient, an orange filter is recommended, followed by red, which will provide maximum contrast with black and white film.

Heliopan Lichtfilter-Technik of Munich, Germany has changed their black anodized brass filter rings on most Heliopan non-rotating filters to their "slim" mounts. These slim mounts are made of black anodized brass stock and have so little rim in front of the lens (5.4mm) that they will not vignette with lenses as short as 21mm.

Heliopan offers a wide selection of sizes, screw-in, series, bayonet, square and rectangular filters including digital, video, center weighted, graduated, wide angle, Kaesmann polarizers, drop-in polarizers, etc.

Note:
This filter is specific to lenses with Hasselblad's exclusive series 104 (Bay 104, B104) filter size
Especially useful for clear contrast between blue sky with clouds and foreground
Enhances landscapes, marine scenes and aerial photography with more dramatic effects than Yellow 8
All Heliopan screw-in type and series size filters are mounted in precision black anodized brass rings to eliminate binding or cross threading and to ensure optimal alignment
Filters still retain front threads for a lens cap, a lens hood or even stacking a second filter
The portion of the Heliopan slim filters that are in front of the lens have been reduced in thickness by 37% over the former mount
Heliopan cuts, grinds, polishes and coats their filters with the same techniques and equipment as used for the finest German camera lenses
