The Cavision 4 x 4" Low Contrast 1 Filter is a valuable filter to use when you are shooting in bright light and need to maintain control of the light balance in the shadow and highlight areas. It works by spreading the brighter light into the shadow areas as well as other parts of the image. This filter is especially valuable to video CCD shooters since that format suffers from a lack of latitude that is more characteristic of film cameras.
