A Tiffen 52mm FL-D Filter is used when you wish to correct for the greenish tone that appears when shooting daylight film under general purpose fluorescent lighting.  

NOTE: The FL series of filters alone does not always guarantee 100% correct color balance when shooting under fluorescent lighting. They are general purpose filters intended for moderate correction and will not, by themselves, necessarily provide perfect color rendition.

An FL-W filter is used to balance daylight film under warm white or white type fluorescent lamps. An FL-B filter is used to correct the color balance when shooting tungsten film under fluorescent lighting.

Fluorescent lamps burn at many different temperatures and often require more demanding filtration for exact results. For specific filtration and professional use, it is strongly recommended that a color temperature meter be employed along with Color Correction filters (i.e.CC30M) when shooting under fluorescent lighting. This is the only proven way to achieve exact color correction.

    52mm FL-D Fluorescent Glass Filter for Daylight Film is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Workable for minor color cast changes I shoot color positive film to shoot my art work; overhead lighting is track with Daylight CFL's rated at 5000Kelvin. This filter does remove the green cast but you lose 1/2 - full stop in the process. My work is very large scale so alternative studio lighting presents its own problems. I make further corrections with my Photoshop Elements to get best results.
