Tiffen W412IR85 overview

  • 1Description

The 4.5" Round Combination 85/Infrared (IR) Filter from Tiffen has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results.

85 Color Conversion
What do you do when you must take some photos outdoors and all you have left is tungsten film? Using tungsten film in daylight will produce a bluish cast in the photograph. The 85 filter will "bring back", i.e. color balance the tones in your images. This yellow filter is used to correct differences in color temperature between the recording medium (film/video) and the light source.

This filter helps control color shift from IR contamination in digital videography irrespective of whether you are using a neutral density filter with an HDSLR or HD video camera. The CCD or CMOS sensor of a digital camera is inherently susceptible to infrared contamination, even when the manufacturer attempts to reduce this problem by adding an infrared absorbing filter on top of the image sensor. Blacks become magenta and greens a muddy brown. Infrared light focuses at a different focal length than visible light; therefore, your images may seem a bit out of focus as well. The more light you cut, the more IR contamination; therefore, whether you're reducing light in general or wish to create a shallow depth of field for a cinematic look, the more IR contamination you will encounter.

Water White glass is characterized by a high transmission quality. Typically, it will transmit 98-99% of the light. It also features an anti-glare and anti-reflective quality that makes it useful in a wide range of uses including the movie theater industry, store and art displays. The glass is virtually defect-free and is becoming more and more prevalent in digital equipment.

Reduces Infrared Bleed Above 700nm
This is particularly important as it now allows for the use of the heavier grades of neutral density filters needed for hi definition cameras while, at the same time, maintaining complete color balance
