Does anybody know what a CTO2B-ND.09 filter does? At least that's what the small letters written on the filter itself say. I know, it's part neutral density but I don't know what the other part could be, (the filter itself looks like an ND filter, very dark).

It´s an 85 combined with ND 0.9.
I´m not absolutely sure about the density of the 85 (CTO), but I know that Agfa Gevaert used to produce color conversion filters with the scale CTO1B, CTO2B etc.

I had a sneaking suspicion but I've never seen camera filters that use the naming system of lighting gels.

Agfa did make a series of colour correction filters using CTB for those increasing the colour temperature and CTO for those reducing the colour temperature.

My understanding is that a CTO2B is nearer to a Wratten 81B

I would allow for the 0.9 ND and test
