Tiffen 55SC5 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 55mm Soft Contrast 5 Filter is a contrast reduction filter that darkens highlights while maintaining the density of shadows within a scene. The effect of a light absorbing element within this filter is apparent in highlights without requiring a change in overall exposure. Details within bright areas are made more visible without a similar effect on dark areas. Tiffen Soft Contrast filters are available in grades numbering one through five. Each larger numbered grade corresponds to a stronger effect.

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.

Darkens highlights within an image while maintaining shadow density.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and does not require a change in exposure.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.
