Florescent lighting has characteristics that affect color rendition. This color shift is not usually visual to the human eye but will cause adverse effects on film.

When shooting under "daylight" florescents your pictures will have a purplish tone. Hoya's FL-D filter corrects and restores a normal color balance.
In industrial situations you might encounter "warm white" florescents which will give a greenish tone, requiring Hoya's FL-W corrective filter.
Both filters are available in coated and multi coated (stronger flare prevention) versions and all popular sizes.

As their names suggest, these filters use HOYA coloured glass. They are used for colour correction of different light sources when using colour film, or for controlling contrast with Black & White film. Colour correction filters are important, as colour films do not have the flexibility of the human eye to automatically adjust to different situations. Black & White films register colours as shades of grey and the rendition of each colour in a scene is important, so filters can be used to control this. The colour of the glass used in all these filters is carefully controlled and to reduce the possibility of colour shift over a period of time, such high quality filters are coated or multicoated on both sides. This maintains the desired effect and gives a long service life.
