I recently saw this Hoya "1B" filter. Not too sure what it is for and the lense looks a little tinged with pink.

I'm just curious what it's for...

Kindly enlighten?

Cheers! :)

Are you referring to the Hoya Skylight 1B?

The Skylight 1B absorbs both UV and part of the blue/green spectrum such that it makes colours slightly warmer.

Some 602 users have reported that it helps in elminating any chance of greencast in your outdoor shots. I personally have one on mine and I've not seen any instance of greenish cast occuring.

Hi Zerstorer.

Thanks for explaining. However, i'm curious to find out if this Skylight 1B is the same as the "Excel 1B"?

Cheers! :)

Nope. Mine is a Hoya SHMC Skylight 1B.

Also curious about the Excel 1B that both of you seem to have...:dunno:

It's not even listed on Hoya's webpage:
