Product Description

Size: 52mm

Product Description

Neutral Density filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene. Especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure. Also allows proper exposure at a wider lens opening for reduced depth-of-field to highlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus. Neutral Density filters eliminate overly bright, washed-out images, balance exposure, control depth-of-field and allow slower shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effects.

ND filters should be standard equipment for any serious photographer. Primarily I use ND filters for use in the blazing bright mountain snow; the perfect solution without changing colors like a CPL filter can. I have been very please with all the Tiffen filters I have purchased and never hesitate to shop Tiffen first when I'm in need of a new filter or a replacement. I know are bothered by the vignetting you can get from screw-on type ND filters but I haven't noticed this to be a problem as long as enough light is available. I fact, this filter is most useful when too much light is available. Until something happens to change my mind, I will tell everyone, "You can't go wrong with Tiffen filters."

I have a Canon 5D Mk 2, with L series lenses. I have more expensive filters by B&W and this one looks just as good! They are stackable as well. I have a 3, 6, and the 9. You can screw them together to make it even darker and do really long exposures (4 seconds plus) without it blowing out! My advice is it's great buy all three!

I bought this ND lens to try to capture the flowing techniques of water and wind. I had to play a little with the shutter speed to get the photos just right, but I had a lot of fun photographing a windy Iowa day. (See my photo under Customer photos here). While I think a .9 would be better for the wind shots, I am very pleased with the results of my first experiment. I can't wait to try it on water. A tripod is a must for these kinds of photos. I am also looking forward to experimenting with panning shots for background blur. The photos I took turned out sharp where needed (Tree trunks). I am very pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone looking for this type of lens. It worked great with my Canon Rebel XT digital SLR.

I'm an amateur photographer that's lucky enough to get sent all around the world. Recently on a trip to Alberobello, Italy I was taking pictures of Trulli houses during sunset. I found the absolute location to take pictures of the houses on the hill, the sun was in the perfect spot, there was great contrast between the clouds above the sun and the rays of light shooting up into them, but because the sun was only setting behind the hill and there was another 30 minutes before true sunset I was still essentially taking pictures of my light source, I simply couldn't capture the scene like I was seeing it. I thought to myself, man if only I had something like sunglasses for my camera. Enter the neutral density filter. That's the best way I can explain it. As much as I enjoy tinkering with photoshop, I much prefer to get the picture perfect at the camera and never even open photoshop. This ND filter allows me to tone down the lighting, but still giving me the entire range of adjustments my D80 offers. I've found it works best there's slightly overwhelming light that you can't control, and it's produced some pretty interesting effects during sunset when I increase my exposure a bit. The filter is thin enough that I can stack it on top of my UV filter and it doesn't crop the frame on either 35mm or my 18-55mm that it fits on. The quality is great, I have some no name filter that came with the 18-55 lens and it feels like it was assembled in a garage, not so with the Tiffen filters.

This product works great for taking pictures of waterfalls (with a tripod) or for any time you need to use a slower shutter speed. I haven't had any problems with it, used it twice.

Not a whole lot to review, product is pretty simple. It arrived on time, is well built and works as advertised. Better results can be achieved in hard light situations. Allows for slower shutter speeds in bright conditions. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great filter, easy to use. It came and the case it was in had opened, and the filter was floating around inside of the box. The filter was not scratched or damaged in any way. It just had a lot of dust on it. It was easilly remidied with a quick puff of the blower. I have gotten good results with this, it works as intended and gives me the 2 stops it advertises. I cannot see any optical issues with the filter, so it is a great one in my book!

this review is for the few of us that know what we are buying but are also trying to save a bit of money. the adage goes, "if you have enough money to spend on that lens that costs x-amount of money, you should be able to afford a filter that compliments it." this is true. but some of us need to save a few bucks and this is one of those areas that some feel you can be a little cheaper. so if this describes you, then this review is for you. its quick and its dirty and I have no data to support any of my statements other than my own observation and experience with this product.

putting on this filter, i see no problems. new out of box, the threads seem to fit well without being too tight or too loose. the filter seems to be evenly tinted without any darker spots throughout the transparent medium. like i said, I haven't done any "science" to verify this. image quality has no suffered due to using these filters. i shoot medium to pro glass and i haven't seen any noticeable difference in resolution. im happy with the color accuracy across the frame. I have not tested the amount this filter protects against weather or dust. But since I don't generally find myself forced to shoot in precipitously challenging situations, I have not had to worry about it.

all in all, this is a decent filter. i will buy more in the future. But I have a feeling if I find myself in a situation where I'm being paid a bunch more the work, i'd probably suck it up and purchase a different brand filter.
