Tiffen 55R25 overview

  • 1Description

The 55mm #25 Red Filter from Tiffen is a filter designed to build contrast in black and white photography and creates separation between the tones. Using this filter it creates dramatic skies or simulate a moonlit scene during the day by slightly underexposing the image and also eliminating fog and haze. Infrared film is enhanced with extreme contrast turning skies even more dramatic and turning foliage white in landscape photos. The filter has a filter factor of 8, so you must increase your exposure by 3 stops 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.

    Tiffen 55R25 reviews

    #25 Red Filter (55mm) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very strong contrast effects. This filter is most useful when you really want to emphasize the clouds or contrast architecture against a blue sky. Overall the filter is of very good quality. The fit and finish are good and it is optically good enough so as not to cause any degradtion of the image sharpness or contrast under normal usage conditions. It would be nice if Tiffen filters were coated to reduce the potential of flare, but in practical use, flare problems are rather seldom encountered, and the price to performance ratio is very good. 4 stars because of the lack of coating.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Red Filter I needed a red filter for my photography class, was excited when it came. Unfortunately it had a small chip in the filter near the side. Would have liked to exchange it for a new one because of what I paid for it, but since I needed it for my assignment and it did not affect the shot I just kept it. Other than that it works just fine. I also ordered a yellow filter and it was just fine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for B&W Film Nice red filter - came defect free. Produces nice high contrast images with the 400 and 100 ASA films I used. A great product, especially for the cost.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tiffen Red Filter for Dramatic Tone I recently bought this filter for the wide angle lens I use on my Canon AE-1 and love it. I find it especially useful for black & white landscape photography as it darkens blues and greens, enhancing contrast between clouds and skies on the one hand and vegetation and rock on the other. Also great for urban skylines and architecture in general. Fantastic filter at a reasonable price.
