The Formatt 4 x 4" 82 Color Conversion Filter is a light balancing filter used to increase the color temperature slightly for a cooler tone. This blue filter absorbs the excessive yellow-red light from daylight in the morning.
There is much flattering light to be found in the early morning and afternoon hours. With sunlight low on the horizon, the red-orange end of the spectrum becomes enhanced. With daylight balanced film, images shot in this light may prove to be a bit on the warm side. The photographer may desire this effect or choose to "cool" things down. The 82 series of blue filters allows the photographer to keep skin tones somewhat normal by increasing the color temperature to a more daylight balanced level.
This filter can be used by the pro and amateur alike, weekend photo warrior or pro cinematographer and must be considered an essential addition to any photo arsenal.
Note: Whereas the 81 Series of filters creates a feeling of warmth, the 82 Series creates a feeling of coolness
Formatt filters are made from Schott-Desag B270 Crown Optical Glass - a high-quality glass that assures you of color consistency from filter to filter
