Can someone tell my the difference between the different color lenses used in shooting? Why yellow, why rose, why brown (believe this is just for sun)?

All comments are welcome.

The short answer, red/pink has become the primary choice in recent times. The common preference used to be amber for shooting.

The long answer (and you can even note the shift of preference from amber to red over the years of this thread):

Edited to add: I use Rudy Project photochromatic red lenses that go from pink indoors to deep burgundy in full sunlight.

Different colors of lenses, for differing light conditions (sunny, cloudy,green backgound, sand backgound) back grounds and color of targets.

Simple huh?

Go to the Decot website. You can see the different shades of lenses in different light conditions, backgrounds etc.
