Yellow is the opposite of blue and can be used to reduce blue tones or casts within a scene or print. This yellow CC20 is more dense than a CC10 filter and less dense than a CC30 filter, and requires a 0.3 stop compensation for normal exposure results.

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 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.
