A filter of LE series LED flashlight is an optical grade acrylic fly-eye lens carrying high transmittance. The fly-eye lens consists of many of small lenses as like compound multifaceted eyes of insects and diffuses light source to illuminate a subject evenly. The advantage of the fly-eye lens over general translucent diffuser panel for a lighting device, is its high diffusional efficiency to widen beam coverage with less attenuation.
The "W40° Filter LE" and "W50° Filter LE" has two laminated fly-eye lenses with hollow construction to effectively diffuse light even underwater.

Above combination is reference information when you select which Filter to use for your particular camera system.
The field test has been conducted on a like-for-like basis with same camera / subject / composition as practical as possible and above combination is determined based on perceptually close color tone result comparing to same condition taken with INON strobe but not guaranteed to get accurate replication of color tone by strobe shooting. Please note that you may have different result when using different camera model besides above even from same camera manufacture.
