The Tiffen 82mm Low Contrast 1 Filter provides a small reduction in contrast across the image. Lower contrast results in greater shadow detail when properly exposed. This filter is ideal for use during midday and other high contrast lighting situations when it is difficult to control both overexposed highlights and underexposed shadows.
There is a 1 stop density that aids in providing less contrast across the scene by allowing the use of longer, more controlled exposures. Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.
