Tiffen 52R23A overview

  • 1Description

Increasing contrast when working in black and white, this 52mm Red 23A Filter from Tiffen is used to noticeably darken cool and blue tones in order to emphasized both shadows and clouds. Offering greater tonal separation than regular yellow and orange contrast filters, the light-red 23A is especially well-suited to producing dramatic outdoor and landscape imagery. There is an approximate 4x filter factor with this filter, requiring an increase of 2 stops for normal exposure.

The filter is constructed using Tiffen's ColorCore technology, which involves lamenting the filter material between two pieces of optical glass, grounding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and mounting within an aluminum alloy ring.

Light-red filter provides the same effect as a Wratten 23A contrast filter, and helps to darken blue tones while lightening warm orange and red tones, when photographing in black and white.
Commonly used for landscape photography to emphasize and darken blue skies and give clouds more visual depth.
Filter factor of 4 requires approximately 2 stops of additional exposure to maintain normal results.
ColorCore technology, which permanently laminates the filter material between two pieces of optical glass, maintains image clarity, accuracy, and consistency.
Aluminum filter ring is both lightweight and durable.

    Tiffen 52R23A reviews

    52mm Red 23A Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from under-rated bw and ir filter this filter is quite a nice surprise. I mainly bought it to use with a full spectrum digital camera for IR. Many times the full 25 Red is too much of an effect and I wanted something more on par with the density of a standard orange filter but red. The 23A is exactly that.
