About Tiffen 4x5.65"" Glimmerglass 3/I

The Tiffen 4 x 5.65" Glimmerglass 3/IR Filter is a unique way to give your portrait subject a clean, fresh and flattering appearance. This creative diffusion filter reduces contrast while subtly minimizing the finer details in the shot. Highlights take on a mild glow. The purpose of this filter is not only to add a flattering appearance to the portrait but to give your subject more confidence during the shoot. Since the filter emanates a noticeable silver sparkle, when your subject sees that, he will believe the filter is working in his favor. This, in turn, will hopefully inspire him to give a better sitting during the session. The idea behind the Glimmerglass effect is a psychological one where the subject responds to the sparkle of the filter and, not necessarily, to the photographer.

Tiffen's T1 infrared component is a high-tech filter targeted towards eliminating infrared contamination at 680 nm. This filter will assist you in maintaining your color spectrum when shooting against a dark fabric. You will notice the blacks turn out true with no color cast from the red end of the spectrum. This filter has been created to help capture a much broader spectrum of color than previous infrared filters - particularly with digital camcorders. Color shift is a critical factor in digital photography especially when dealing with the infrared spectrum - and even more important when shooting with HD technology.

Water White glass, using Tiffen's ColorCore technology, 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.

Tiffen 4x5.65"" Glimmerglass 3/I Features

  • Glimmerglass softens details in a unique manner while adding a mild glow to highlight - the glass itself has a distinct silver sparkle
  • This filter has value in that it is designed to not only be looked through but looked at. When your subject sees the sparkle generated by the filter, he will feel more confident during the shooting session
  • Available in various grades of diffusion - the effect of the lighter grades is more subtle with higher grades becoming gradually more noticeable
  • T1 infrared technology helps eliminate the red contamination on dark products and fabrics
  • Good for digital/video photography - helps capture a full range of colors that would normally be subjected to IR contamination even with the built-in IR filters of some of today's cameras
  • Tiffen's ColorCore glass is sealed between two optical glass sheets. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of this filter and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration
