The B+W 72mm #8 Yellow Filter is strong blue suppression, which extends into the blue-green, clouds in the sky look very natural, but not yet dramatic. Distant views with light haze become clearer. An ideal filter, especially for landscape and plant photographs. Its filter factor is approximately 2.

This filter uses our standard B+W F-Pro filter mount, which has a front accessory thread and is made of brass. Compared to the earlier standard mount introduced in 2001, the F-Pro mount has become thinner. Now it can be used with wide angle lenses, including most 24mm focal lengths on a full frame body, without vignetting. Another advantage of the F-Pro mount is it's modified retaining ring, which is no longer threaded in from the front, but holds the filter glass in place from the back. When removing a filter or lens hood that has been screwed on too tight to the filter, the retaining ring is not at risk of loosening.

Each glass surface is vacuum coated with one layer of Anti-Reflection coating. This single layer helps to prevent internal ghosting and reflections. It also improves light transmission from approximately 92% (uncoated glass) to over 98%. 

NOTE: diopters are mounted in the older mount due to glass thickness.

Features:
  • Yellow contrast filter for black and white film subtly darkens skies, cuts through haze, and gives greater contrast overall.
  • Produces accurate tones in order to compensate for panchromatic film's blue sensitivity.
  • Constructed from high quality Schott glass for optical clarity.
  • Brass filter ring helps to prevent jamming and provides additional strength.
