Tiffen 138OR16 Overview

The 138mm #16 Orange Filter from Tiffen is a filter designed to build contrast in black and white photography. The effect of the contrast will be greater than the #15 yellow when shooting B&W landscape, marine, or aerial photos. Therefore, making skies more dramatic and darker.

Tiffen filters are not dyed, but are manufactured by using ColorCore technology. This process laminates the filter material between two pieces of optical glass and grinds down and polishes the glass. The glass is then mounted to the metal ring, which after that can be screwed onto the lens for the desired effect.
