    Tungsten film makes things very blue-cyan when shot in daylight...which is why they look normal when shot in tungsten light.

    The standard filter to "normalize" tungsten film for daylight is an 85 filter, which is pretty much orange.

    So, the yellow filter will likely take some of the blue away, but some blue, and plenty of green from the cyan will likely remain.

    If you want "normal" (meaning like a daylight-balanced film) results from tungsten films shot outdoors, the Wratten #85 is your filter.

    As for the OP: Please take a long, hard think about your question and I am sure you will come up with the answer. (Hint: It is extremely obvious. )

    In this instance, the OP would need to put first an 80A filter, then a yellow filter on top of that on his lens to have a bit of a preview.

    If you use a yellow filter with colour film you get a very jaundiced view of The World

    The yellow filter will help counter balance the pesky blue coating on flash bulbs.

    I asume its an slr?

    If so, look through the viewfinder: what you see is what you'll get. Not too pretty, unless your subject is a sunset.

    (Otherwise, just look through the filter itself.)
