Heliopan 707703 Overview

  • 1Description

The Heliopan 77mm #8 Medium Yellow Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film, that 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 2.5-3x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 1.3 to 1.5 stops for normal exposure.

The front and rear surfaces of the filter both feature a single anti-reflection coating. Each coating helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, they offer protection to the filter substrate while helping to keep the glass clean for longer than uncoated glass.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for durability as well as jamming prevention.

    Heliopan 707703 Reviews

    77mm #8 Medium Yellow Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Quality Optical Filter This medium yellow (Wratten #8) filter is the basic lens accessory for Black and White imaging. It heightens contrast to a reasonable level with minimal light attenuation. The brass mount makes this size filter sturdy. The black anodize on the mount is flat black to avoid light reflection. The filter data is silk screen printed on the outside of the rim, which is the right place. The yellow color matches the other #8 filters I have. The glass is coated on both sides, which does most of the job. Multicoating on these contrast filters is unnecessary and increases cost, making this particular filter the best value. However, in spite of B&H competitive pricing, the cost of a new one is still just too high for me, and I chose to buy a good used sample from B&H. Now, I am satisfied with all aspects of this purchase.
