The INON LE series filters for LED flashlights are optical grade acrylic fly-eye lenses carrying high transmittance. The fly-eye lens consists of many of small lenses (like compound multifaceted eyes of insects) and diffuses the 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.
Red Filter LE
The INON Red Filter LE provides red light which will not stimulate shy subjects – so ideal for observing underwater life, like spawning in dusk.

Pink Filter LE
Orange Filter LE
Provides natural color tone to a certain level by easing unnatural color tone including yellowish light particularly observed when shooting only with LED flashlight and subject is relatively close to the light source.
- [Packaged with LE700-W / LE700-S]
W40° Filter LE
Effectively diffuse LED flashlight to provide natural and seamless wide LED light (approx. 40°).
- [Packaged with LE250/LE240]
- Compatible product: LE250, LE240
W50° Filter LE
Effectively diffuse LED flashlight to provide natural and seamless wide LED light (approx. 50° with LE250 / LE240, 65° with LE550-S and 60° with LE700-S Type2 / LE700-S / LE350 Type2 / LE350) which is ideal as close range fill-in light for photography.

W50° Red Filter LE
Suppress influence of light on shy subjects by changing light color to red and increasing beam coverage (approx. 50° with LE250 / LE240 , 65° with LE550-S and 60° with LE700-S Type2 / LE700-S / LE350 Type2 / LE350).
W50° Pink Filter LE
W50° Orange Filter LE
In addition to above, effectively diffuse LED flashlight provide natural and seamless wide beam (approx. 50° with LE250 / LE240, 65° with LE550-S and 60° with LE700-S / LE350) which is ideal as close range assisting light for photography / videography.
[Packaged with LE700-S]
Inon's field tests have shown better results in the following combinations at this stage - though your opinion may differ depending on camera model, make, camera settings, shooting conditions or personal preference.
Olympus: "Pink" (tested on μTOUGH8000)
Canon: "Pink" (tested on IXYD220IS, IXYD210IS, EOS50D)
Nikon: "Pink" (tested on D300)
Panasonic: "Pink" (tested on LUMIX FT1, LUMIX FX40)
Fujifilm: "Orange" (tested on FinePix F100fd / F200EXR)
Above combinations are reference information only for selcting which Filter to use with your particular camera system.
The field test has been conducted on a like-for-like basis with same camera / subject / composition as practically as possible. Above combinations are determined based on perceptually close color tone results compared to the same conditions taken with INON strobe. Please note that you may have different results when using different camera models besides the above even from the same camera manufacturer.
