The 81B color correction filter warms the ambient light entering the lens by 300° Kelvin by adding orange to the overall exposure. The filter helps fine-tune the color or look of your scene to match your film's white balance.

The Hoya 81B filter is helpful when:

  • You are using daylight-balanced film and the light source is cooler than the traditional 5500° K and you need a specific amount of color correction to match your film type.

  • You would like to add a slightly warmer look to your portraits.

  • You are shooting in overcast conditions and there is a blue color cast.

HOYA Multi-Coat (HMC) filters are recommended for enhancing the performance of today’s multicoated lenses. These popular filters minimize reflection, reduce flare and ghosting, and result in over 97% average light transmission.
