    There are such filters: the 85 series, but they are more amber than yellow. Depending upon the actual color temp. of the light you are shooting in you can get a normal-ish result. Pleasing photographs... that is always possible depending on who is being pleased...

    You need a blue filter to correct tungsten film to daylight appearance. IIRC, there are three different ones depending on the temperture of available the light.

    Well put. I don't have an 85 filter, hence this experiment.

    Now, Q.G., tell me this doesn't look normal-ish.. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiffibunny/1158134056/ (not mine... Holga?... gimme a break... )

    And no, a blue filter would not be good with tungsten film outside. Unless you are attempting to simulate being underwater perhaps.

    I can't tell right now, because i'm at a computer with a broken monitor.
    It shows everything as if through a yellow filter...
    (True!)

    hahaha! Try finding some pictures with a blue cast and they might just look normal to you.

    That's for Daylight film in tungsten light.

    You'd think so, perhaps. But they only look dark.

    I have a 17/4 SMC Takumar M42 mount Fisheye lens with built in filters (UV, Red, and Yellow) for use with B&W film.

    Out of curiosity, I tried a couple of shots with the coloured filters using dayllight colour negative film.

    The results were not particularly pleasing and resembled what you might have expected from having attached some yellow or red cellophane in front of the lens.

    So, if wanting a pre-view, get come colured cellophane and look through it: what you see is what you'll get.

    Out of fairness to color filters for B&W effects, you can use them for creative monotone prints. Try a red or orange at sunrise or sunset. Maybe a green filter with a dark forest scene or with a water scene. It drives color labs crazy trying to correct them.
