The 138mm Tiffen Day for Night Monochrome Glass Filter is an effect that makes a scene recorded in daylight appear as if it were taken at twilight.

This is usually accomplished by the use of a filter that both underexposes by about two stops, and can also produce a bluish color overcast. Lighting, contrast, and other factors contribute to the reality of this effect. 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
