Tiffen 3CVF overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen #3 Viewing filter is for faster film and video. Balancing lighting by eye is a matter of experience. Decisions can be aided through the use of contrast viewing filters. These are designed to handicap the eye, with its much greater range of apparent densities, to resemble the range of the various types of film.

Use contrast viewers to judge relative highlight and shadow densities
There are viewers for black-and-white film, as well as various viewer densities for color film
A darker viewer is used for slower film speeds, where you would tend to use brighter lighting; faster film, which can be used in dimmer settings would require a lighter viewer

Tiffen Viewing Filters

The #1 is for black-and-white imaging
The #2 viewer is for film speeds to 100
#3 is for faster film; They can be used for video, as well, with the #3 being better suited for lower light levels
The green #4 viewer is for process photography
The blue #5 is for blue screen work, as well as for setting up color video monitors

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for Cinematographer's Tiffen makes in my opinion the best lens filters and viewing filters. This Contrast- Color viewing filter is not the exception. It has a great built quality, is very solid and it gets the job done if you know how to use it properly. It was designed for film faster that 200 ISO but it could be use with digital. It got delivered sooner than the expected date.
