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.

Excellent filter for b&w photography to enhance contrasts (e.g., bright clouds in a dark sky), very high quality with a metal frame (no plastic!), thin enough for wide angle lenses. Love it!

Very Good

Works for B&W, adds contrast and mid boost, but with subtle detail. Seems solid. I would buy a yellow one but they stopped making Aerochrome!!!
