    A2 Amber vs A12 amber filter

    Is the difference between these, the intensity of effect? thanks.

    Would it warm up photos with daylight film?, for example animal photos to make them nicer.

    Nikon A2 filters are used for modest warming of photos taken on daylight film in shade, on overcast days, or by north window light. It is the equivalent of a Kodak 81A. The A12 filter is much stronger, for correcting tungston film for use outdoors. It is the equivalent of a Kodak 85.

    Ive read that an 85B specifically is for correcting Tungsten film, not an 85?
    Anyway i have a Hoya 85 for the same reason - warming up daylight colour film. Its fit for that purpose; the effect is strong, but not so much that I dont mind leaving it on all the time. I just like that look, and I couldn't get it with 81a/b.
    However I also have an 85B for that I use for Tungsten film, and I probably would never use that with regular film.
