Neutral Density FiltersThese filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene. They are especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure. Neutral Density filters also allow 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.Eliminates overly bright, washed-out imagesBalances exposureControls depth-of-fieldAllows slower shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effectsFilter Properties At A GlanceFront ThreadsYesAccepts Snap In Lens CapYesFilter Ring Depth (Less Threads)5mmCoatingUn-CoatedFilter Factor 4- StopsClick on the link below for a comparable filter at a lower price:http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=231030568257&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:ITWhy You Need Tiffen Optical Filters There is something to be said for creating images at the moment of exposurethe way most of the worlds greatest pictures have been made. Tiffen optical filters let you do just that, by being able to preview the effect youll get when it matters mostwhen youre behind the camera.There is nothing wrong with using electronic plug-in filter programs that let you add effects or manipulate the image after its taken. But if you really want to own the final images you compose, theres no substitute for Tiffen optical filters. Theyre simply unsurpassed when it comes to controlling color balance and special effects with precision, repeatability, and convenience.Its important to remember that filtering the light, before it passes through the lens and strikes the image sensor or film, has important advantages. It lets you match the brightness range of the scene to the characteristics of the capture medium, and get professional quality results even under tough lighting conditions. Tiffen Polarizing filters actually polarize the light, to eliminate reflections on glass and water surfaces while retaining sub-surface details. Neither of these effects are possible with after-the-fact plug-in filter systems, which can only provide filter effects, not true light filtration.Why Tiffen Filters Are Superior Tiffen filters are manufactured using ColorCore technology, a closely guarded proprietary process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision metal rings. The ColorCore process allows us to control the color and density of Tiffen filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations.When Tiffen filters are ground and polished, the ColorCore is unaffected, so color and density remain uniform. Indeed, when you hold a group of Tiffen filters of the same type against a white sheet of paper, they all look identicalbecause they are! Try this with our competitors filters and youre likely to see slight variations.Maybe thats why most top Hollywood motion picture studios rely on Tiffen filters for their multimillion-dollar productions, or why we can custom-make an exact replacement for them if one breaks on the job. Thats consistency, and excellencetwo pretty good reasons why, when it comes to filters, you should rely on Tiffen too.See the Difference Tiffen Filters MakeTiffen filters make a big difference indoors, outdoors, in close-up portraits or milewide landscapes, in bright sun or shade, and in many other photo situations?the right Tiffen filter delivers a great image instead of a snapshot.
