The Heliopan Series 8 #29 Dark Red Filter is a basic contrast filter, primarily for use with black and white film, that completely absorbs blue and green tones, enhances reds, and increases contrast for outdoor photography. It is suitable for use in tri-color separations and for photographing faded documents. There is an approximate 8-12x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 3 to 3.5 stops for normal exposure.

The front and rear surfaces of the filter both feature a single anti-reflection coating. Each coating helps to increase light transmission by reducing reflections, scattered light, and ghosting. Additionally, they offer protection to the filter substrate while helping to keep the glass clean for longer than uncoated glass.

This Heliopan filter is constructed from Schott glass for increased optical clarity and color fidelity. It features a brass filter ring for enhanced durability.

Dark red contrast filter for black and white film significantly darkens blue and green tones, cuts through haze, and increases overall contrast.
Suitable for tri-color separations as well as reproduction photography of faded documents.
Single coatings on both the front and rear offer protection to the glass and help to improve light transmission and image quality.
Constructed from Schott glass for optical clarity.
Brass filter ring provides additional strength.
