Introducing the Backscatter Color Filter System

The Backscatter Color Filter System adds another dimension of creativity for lighting a subject in a new way.GET CREATIVE FOR A WHOLE NEW LOOK Add a new dimension to your videos and photos with the Backscatter Color Filter System. The Backscatter Color Filter System is compatible with the Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1, Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light, and Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1. The Backscatter Color Filter System can be used for front lighting or backlighting to give a new look to familiar subjects. Combine the color filter set with regular white light, or even with multiple colors. Add other objects in the background and light those secondary subjects for a new look. Use a color filter, or multiple colors, to add a new look to a familiar subject. Sony a7R IV | Sony 90mm | 1/250 | ISO 100 | ƒ7.1HOW IT WORKS There are 2 separate color filter sets, each with 6 colors. The Backscatter Bold Filter Set contains bold and striking colors: Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Hot Pink, and Dark Amber. These colors are super saturated and are great for adding a strong statement to photos and videos. The Backscatter Pastel Filter Set contains lighter shades and more subtle colors: Lavender, Light Blue, Light Green, Pink, Yellow, and Turquoise. These lighter colors are less saturated and blend better in high key style shots with a brighter background or to add a more subtle effect. The color filter sets are “Swiss Army” style, with 2 protective covers on the front and back. Each color can be individually rotated out for use without having to fumble with multiple loose filters on a dive. There is a metal mounting ring that can take a double-ender clip for convenient clipping off to a D-ring on a BC when not in use. To attach the color filter set to the light or snoot, use the filter holder. The filter holder is the same for the Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1 and the Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light. There is a separate color filter holder for the Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1. With 12 individual colors, the Backscatter Color Filter System has lots of possibilities for creative lighting. It’s easy to deploy and can be conveniently stored on a double-ender clip within easy reach. Compatible with Backscatter Mini Flash MF-1, Backscatter Macro Wide 4300, and Optical Snoot OS-1.Easier to Use a Flash for Colors in Photos Than a Video Light In the past, colored backlit still photos were usually done with color filters on video lights as there was no practical way to use color filters on strobes. This made it more difficult to control the background light because it has to be exposed with shutter speed, which also affects the ambient light. When the shutter speed is slowed down to get more of the color in the background, more unwanted ambient light creeps into the image, and it's also possible to introduce unwanted motion blur on the color light. This makes it harder to manage multiple lighting elements, especially during the daytime. Colors and backlighting are super easy to control while using the Backscatter Color Filter System on the strobe. The shutter speed can be left at a high setting to knock out ambient light while having no effect on the light from the strobe. ISOs can be left at lower settings since the strobe has plenty of power. Because a strobe is more powerful than a video light, the strobe can be used at greater distances without light falloff. The primary advantages of a strobe over a video light are larger light coverage for wider areas, the ability to freeze motion for sharper images, and easier control over color backgrounds. 4K underwater sample video footage captured with the Olympus TG-6 & Backscatter Macro Wide 4300 Video Light.

The Backscatter Optical Snoot OS-1 narrows the beam of light from a small spot to a tiny pinpoint. The snoot allows you to place the light exactly where you want without spilling into other areas of the image. This can be used to great effect when lighting a subject with a pinpoint of white light against a color background, or even when the Backscatter Color Filter System is used on the end of the Optical Snoot OS-1 directly for a pinpoint of color. By using the Optical Snoot OS-1 for both the front white light and purple backlighting, the precise location of light can be achieved for a bold and new creative look.
