The 52mm Tiffen Day-for-Night Lavender-Blue Cooling Filter produces a day-for-night photographic effect. It is an effect that makes a scene recorded in daylight to appear as if it were at twilight. Day for night filters are a cost-effective alternative to night shooting where overtime charges may apply to cast, crew and rental equipment of lighting gear.

Tiffen's ColorCore glass is produced through a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision aluminum rings.

Industry standard special effect filter
Unique visual effect makes this a highly prized filter for certain scenarios
Tiffen's ColorCore glass is sealed between two optical glass sheets. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration. This process makes for greater accuracy of color as opposed to glass that is simply dyed and become subject to deviation during the dye process
Tiffen, a leader in the filter industry, proudly makes its filters in the USA and backs up its products with a solid 10-year warranty

    Drama and Mystery At Your Fingertips!

      • Dramatic shading and tone

      Comments about Tiffen 52mm Day for Night Lavender-Blue Cooling Filter:

      The day was clear and warm, and the tombstones in the cemetery were nothing special, sitting in the shade of the oak tree. But screwing on the filter of the Tiffen Cool Day for Night filter made all the difference. Not at first, of course... it seemed to be just a shade of lavender/blue through the viewfinder. But once I downloaded the picture, the dramatic shadows and the film noir quality of the blueing told me I had something special to work with.

      I dropped the brightness and kicked up the contrast... that's all. My first shot looked like I had been doing it for years. I repeated the action and I knew it was going to be one of my favorite filters in the bag. Yes... it's far from cheap, but it's by Tiffen. You know their quality. And it's WORTH IT.
