The Konica Minolta 62mm Color Conversion Filter Kit comes with two valuable filters used to balance film under daylight, artificial, tungsten or standard (household) incandescent lighting.

80B Filter
You've been given an assignment to do some slide copying on a copy stand. Unfortunately, you only have daylight film and you notice that the copy stand is loaded with 3400K photofloods. Not to worry! An 80B is a strong dark-blue filter that will balance your colors back to reasonable normality. This filter can also be used as a "conversion" filter for when you are shooting in a room with incandescent light (household light bulbs) and daylight film.

This filter allows you to "balance", i.e. bring back, correct color tone to your images. There is some loss of film speed that may require the use of a tripod but, at least, your photos will demonstrate the proper tonality they so richly deserve.

85 Filter
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.

  • Konica Minolta 62mm A12 (#85) Color Conversion Filter

    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

  • Konica Minolta 62mm B12 (80B) Color Conversion Filter

    The Konica-Minolta 62mm B12 (80B) Color Conversion Filter is a dark blue filter which acts as a color conversion filter by correcting artificial light of color temperature 3400 degrees K (photofloods, incandescent lighting) to daylight color film. Without it, strong yellow-orange color tones would occur.

    80C increases color temperature from 3800-5500 Kelvin (commonly used with flashbulbs)
    80D increases color temperature from 4100-5500 Kelvin (commonly used to remove extreme orange or red)
