GamColor CTO Cine Filters - Color Temperature Orange filters help you achieve proper color balance when using strobes or HMIs under incandescent lighting conditions. These filters will help lower the color temperature to match tungsten-balanced light sources (3200K).

CTOs are available in various "steps" - each one a different temperature rating. As individual incandescent lamps vary in color temperature and with their operating voltage, CTOs are used to "tweak" the balance between the ambient light and the light source being employed to make the image (strobe, etc).

Note! When using CTO filters, it is recommended that you use a color temperature meter. It is the only reliable way to determine the correct filtration

CTOs are available in six steps - 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, Full and Extra
