Traditional Tiffen Filters: Tiffen filters are manufactured using the company's award-winning ColorCore(TM) technology, which enables Tiffen to control the color and density of their filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations.
