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.

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.
