    Questions about Tungsten/Daylight film and filters

    What color filter would I need to properly use a tungsten film in daylight?

    The film's data sheet or any basic photography text will tell you.

    Search APUG for a recent thread about Wratten filters. One of the filters will do the trick.

    Do you know where I can get the data sheet for Ektachrome 6121? I tried google, but it just gives me one of my own posts (which told me that I need a yellow-orange filter). :rollseyes:

    I said 85B assuming that it is Ektachrome 64T. I am not sure about Fuji's
    T64

    85 is the one for 5500k light. I don't think that the ISO matters. It is the color balance of the film for the light source. For 6500k it is the 85B. It probably won't make too much difference between the two though. The info was according to B+W filters.

    That's one way of looking at it.

    The 85 filter converts 5500 K daylight to 3400 K. Which is still a bit cool for the Tungsten-balanced films i know.
    Ektachrome 64 T and 160 T were 3200 K films. Portra 100 T was 3200 K too. Fuji's T64 is a 3100 K film, so would like it a bit warmer still.

    A 85B filter converts the same 5500 K daylight to 3200 K, and would be better.

    Ok, I'll try and find an 85B. I guess that Ektachrome dupe film is the same color balance as the 64T with less contrast, so I'll give it a go.
