Tiffen Series 9 1/4 Low Contrast Filter
Key Features
  • Low Contrast for Greater Shadow Detail
  • Does Not Affect Highlight Values
  • Ideal for Midday and Bright Conditions
  • Compatible with Series 9 Filter Holder
The Tiffen Series 9 1/4 Low Contrast Filter works to lessen contrast across the image by creating a small amount of controlled flare near highlight areas. This enables greater detail to be attained in shadow regions, while unaffecting the values of highlights, in order to produce lower apparent contrast. This filter is ideal for use during midday and other high contrast lighting situations when it is difficult to control both overexposed highlights and underexposed shadows. The 1/4 density provides less contrast adjustment than the 1/2 density, but more than the 1/8 density filter.

Tiffen S9LC14 Overview

The Tiffen Series 9 1/4 Low Contrast Filter works to lessen contrast across the image by creating a small amount of controlled flare near highlight areas. This enables greater detail to be attained in shadow regions, while unaffecting the values of highlights, in order to produce lower apparent contrast. This filter is ideal for use during midday and other high contrast lighting situations when it is difficult to control both overexposed highlights and underexposed shadows. The 1/4 density provides less contrast adjustment than the 1/2 density, but more than the 1/8 density filter.

This filter is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings. It is compatible with Series 9 filter holders.

Ideal for use during midday and other high contrast lighting situations when it is difficult to control both overexposed highlights and underexposed shadows.
Lower contrast results in greater shadow detail when properly exposed.
