The Tiffen Low Contrast Filter can be applied to purposely reduce contrast while photographing an image or while recording video. By redistributing illumination from brighter to darker areas within a scene, this filter is useful in helping to balance the tonal range among highlights and shadows. Detail is increased within shadow regions while a halation effect around highlights is created which can further enhance a scene's appearance or produce a desired effect.

This filter has a grade of 3. Grades of 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 3 are also available where this filter type's effect becomes approximately twice as strong with each grade number increase. *Not all grades are available in smaller sizes - size selection will display available strengths.

This filter is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch.
