    Probably #6 or #9 would be the most used. #25 wouldn't be too far behind.

    BW-yellow or orange so far, but red comes in handy for drama.

    Ok, this is stupid question #2350. How do you tell what is what by the different manufactueres designation? I have the basic yellow, red, orange filters, but there are many that I'm looking for, and faced with some strange number, I have no clue if it is a yellow green or purple. Any information out there to tell what is what?

    Aggie,

    I understand your question and concern. In fact I have had the same concerns. The only way that I know to accurately determine the effects among differing manufacturers is to compare the spectral characteristics of the filter. A manufacturer who is of good repute will have this as published information.

    In lieu of that, one can read the filter through the four channels of a color transmission densitometer. In fact, in my opinion, that method is actually more accurate insofar as the filter factors involving additional exposure.

    Good luck

    When in doubt call the seller and ask. better yet go in and look at them. Then again I am not very picky and stick to the basics.

    Aggie,
    Just call them and ask for their catalogs. I use filters from 4 manufacturers - B+W, Heliopan, Nikon and Hi-tech (for split ND) and got all the relevent information from them.

    My most commonly used filter for B&W is a yellow-green filter from B+W.
    Cheers, Shesh

    I'd bet most of them have an online catalog, like this on for Hoya filters:

    I use three filters most... a UV, a Yellow (K2), and a linear polariser.

    I'd have to say my most used filter is a coffee filter. Gotta get woke up in the morning. After that it's a red filter or an R-72 infrared if I'm shooting the stuff.

    LOL - you beat me to it.....
    For me yellow, green, orange or red and often ND depending on the situation and effect I'm after (there uses already identified).
