The 77mm #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. The filter has a filter factor of 3, so you must increase by 1 2/3 of a stop of your exposure to compensate.

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.

    #16 Orange Filter (77mm) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good quality filter for B&W Useful for landscape and architectural photography when a red filter is way too much. Darkens sky and brings out clouds more than enough. I've used Tiffen filters for many years and find that they are of consistantly good quality and the images produced with them are the equal of those shot through filters two and three times as expensive. I've never had a problem with sharpness, and as a matter of fact I often use them on my fluorite spotting scope at magnifications as high as 77x to increase haze penetration when viewing subjects in the distance with no decrease in sharpness. I've also found that Tiffen filters accurately and consistanly conform to the classic Wratten gelatin filters which is important for consistant results. Ive had other name brand filters that differed from filter to filter even though they were of the same designation. Tiffen camera filters are for the most part not coated, so use a lens hood if you are in a situation that might cause flaring issues. 95%+ of the time it is really a non-issue for most photographers. One good aspect of being uncoated is that they are more scratch resistant and easier to clean without streaking than coated filters. I'm sure that the filters could be supplied coated and made of water white, lens quality optical glass, but from my point of view, very little would be gained and they would cost at least twice as much - or more. As a final note, I feel it is important for someone to mention that Tiffen filters are NOT made from a gelatin filter sandwiched between glass. The filter dye is actually incorporated directly into the bonding agent between the glass flats. Tiffen filters will withstand immersion in water and can be used in sustained temperatures up to 170 degrees F without problems. There is a lot of misinformation out there on the Internet regarding this, so I wanted to mention it here. Overall I give this product a 4 out of 5 star rating because of the lack of anti-reflection coating.
