The Tiffen #2 Color ND 2.0 Viewing Filter is for film speeds to 100. Balancing lighting by eye is a matter of experience. Decisions can be aided through the use of contrast viewing filters. These are designed to handicap the eye with its much greater range of apparent densities to resemble the range of the various types of film.

Use contrast viewers to judge relative highlight and shadow densities
There are viewers for black-and-white film, as well as various viewer densities for color film
A darker viewer is used for slower film speeds, where you would tend to use brighter lighting; faster film, which can be used in dimmer settings would require a lighter viewer

          Comments about Tiffen #2 Color ND 2.0 Viewing Filter:

          I saw this viewing filter recommended in a book I was reading and gave it a try. It is a quality, well made product with very dark sepia glass. The idea is that the lens will help you visualize what a color image will look like in b/w by showing tonal, not color variations. However, to my eye, all it did was darken the image dramatically and give the colors a sepia cast. Don't expect to see a black and white conversion, or anything close to one with this lens. The colors do come through.

            Comments about Tiffen #2 Color ND 2.0 Viewing Filter:

            Very easy to use. Lets your eye see with about the same dynamic range as your film or sensor. You can see what will be blown out or black before you click the shutter. Helps you in using the zone system by figuring out where to meter. Great device for saving time little $$
