While the standard True-Pol is 1-3/5 stops, the one stop linear polarizer significantly reduces reflections while reducing available light by just one stop.
Low Contrast filters have always been popular with Directors of Photography, because they mute the excessive contrast often found in nature, and can also desaturate a scene for artistic mood.
The lighter values can be used to just take the high contrast "edge" off of today's best lenses. Unlike similar filters, LowCon filters reduce black contrast without reducing resolution or muddying the image.
For a "filmic look" when shooting with digital cameras. When used in front of the lens, optically raises black levels while lowering highlights.
By compensating with in-camera gamma settings, a higher dynamic range can be recorded than the camera alone can achieve. The result is more detail in highlights and shadows with no effect on resolution and no color shift.
Highlight areas remain clean and halo-free. May be used on a 35mm cine camera toapproximate the look of a lower contrast film stock.
