The Hitech 165 x 165mm #16 Orange Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film. This orange filter noticeably darkens skies, helps to cut through haze, and improves overall contrast. When compared to the yellow #8 filter, the #16 creates a greater separation between clouds and sky and further lightens yellows and reds within the scene.
There is a 2.5x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 1.3 stops for normal exposure. This filter measures 6.5 x 6.5" / 165 x 165mm and is compatible with the Hitech 165mm filter holder. It is constructed out of CR-39 dyed resin.
