The Konica-Minolta 62mm A12 Color Conversion Glass Filter is for using tungsten film in daylight. A #85 filter will decrease the color temperature from 5500K to 3400K and produce slightly cooler results than an 85B.

What do you do when you must take some photos outdoors and all you have left is tungsten film? Using tungsten film in daylight will produce a bluish cast in the photograph. The 85 series of filters will "bring back", i.e. color balance the tones in your images. These yellow filters are used to correct differences in color temperature between the recording medium (film/video) and the light source.

It should be noted that an 85 filter produces slightly cooler results than an 85B (with tungsten film in daylight) whereas an 85B converts tungsten film to daylight. The 85C produces the coolest results - more than either the 85 or 85B. However, it is interesting to remember that an 85C is also useful as a creative warming filter with daylight film in daylight.

Note: Whereas the 85 series is used for tungsten film under daylight conditions, use the 80 series of filters when using daylight film under tungsten lighting

    62mm A12 (#85) Color Conversion Filter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super low price I actually use this on a video camera so I can keep the white balance setting on Daylight while shooting under tungsten/halogen lights (the camera lacks saturation at 3200 degrees K). The filter is not an 85B which is what I needed but at only $ it was too cheap to pass up at least testing it. Works fine for my needs and the 200 degrees difference between an 85 & 85B is not enough for my human eye to detect. SO it's an incredibly good deal for any filter, especially one by Minolta.
