Product Highlights
  • 2 Stop Graduated Neutral Density Filter
  • Reduce Exposure in Selective Areas
  • Digital HT Multi-Coating
  • Low-Profile Titanium Filter Ring
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND Digital HT Filter is a graduated neutral density filter that helps to specifically darken skies and other bright areas of the image. The filter is densest at the edge and tapers to clear by the middle, with a feathered line between the density and clear areas. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and the 0.6 density provides a 2 stop reduction in light from entering the lens. This filter also features a rotating filter ring for flexibility when placing the density over specific areas of the scene.

The Digital HT coating is a high transmission multi-coating that surpasses military specifications for hardness and durability. This optical purity combined with high scratch-resistance results in an easy-to-clean filter with superb imaging quality. They also feature low-profile titanium filter rings for increased strength and vignetting reduction.

0.6 ND graduated filter for darkening skies and other bright areas of the image.
Feathered edge is neither soft nor hard, providing a natural-appearing taper between the density and clear areas of the filter.
Neutral density filters do not affect the overall coloration of the image.
Rotating filter ring allows more control over placement of density in the image.
Digital HT multi-coating provides increased strength, durability, and optical clarity for greater light transmission and protection against scratches.
Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology; a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, then mounting to precision metal rings.

      The 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND Digital HT Filter by Tiffen is a well-designed and well-constructed product with excellent performance.

      The 2-stop gradation in the density nicely balanced the dynamic range in my landscape photos, as it does for many other photographers.

      This filter has the so-called "soft edge" between the neutral density and the clear half, which works well for my purposes, although I'm sure there are other photographers out there who prefer a "hard edge" for their work.

      The filter itself is packaged in a protective cloth enclosed in a compact and lightweight storage pouch, which is nice addition by Tiffen.

      The silver/gray rings of the filter rotate effortlessly and quietly. No issues there.

      The multi-coating gives a strong performance. The glass is exquisitely weather resistant and impact resistant. I trekked with this Tiffen filter for 2 weeks in the rugged terrain of Iceland, dropping it twice (on rock and black sand) and shooting in gales, drizzle, and sleet, and it did not sustain a scratch, separation of the rotating rings, or allow water spots to appear in the final images. That's outstanding performance.

      Flare is non-existent, especially if you're combining it with a good multi-coated polarizer filter. The quality of light transmission with and without a stacked polarizer was equally superb – no degradation in image quality whatsoever.

      If there is ever such a thing as "weather sealing" with any type of screw-in filter, this Tiffen filters delivers. Shooting in subzero temperatures and subsequently returning to warmer indoor temps, I noticed no condensation on the inner face of the glass. I did note that sand/dirt did find its way in between the opposing rotating rings, apparent by the sound of grinding particles during rotation. The only improvement I can suggest to this product is to "tighten" the spacing between the rings. I won't ding the product over this, however, as I understand all too well that sand/dirt/grit has a way of finding its way into a lot of gear if you trek it through the stringent conditions I just did.

      All in all, the 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND Digital HT Filter by Tiffen is an excellent product that delivers the goods and is worth every penny. I strongly recommend it as standard issue gear for landscape photography.

      Compared this vs Formatt and B+W. This Tiffen is the best in terms of true color, and 0.6 is the right density to achieve natural looking skies. However, the graduation is too soft and only shows an effect on the top quarter of the image height.

          Was sick of having to choose between an under exposed foreground or an over exposed sky, now I don't have to! I'd recommend to anyone who shoots a lot of outdoor landscape type shots.

              Comments about Tiffen 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND Digital HT Filter:

              When it comes to filters my very first concern is loss in optical quality very closely followed by wether or not the filter does the job it is made to do.

              The optical quality of this filter I would rate as excellent. I can barely notice a difference in the details when the filter is used versus when not. I can not say this about some other filters I've used at nearly twice the cost. I am very pleased about this.

              As for gradation of the filter, I noticed that gradient completely ends by 1/2 down which a bit to high for my photographic style. I would like more sky to be filtered as usually place my horizons in the bottom 1/3. But, for a screw on filter I suppose this is to be expected.

              I haven't had a chance to use the filter for it's purpose yet, hence the 4-star rating. I can't speak to it's ability on the amount of light reduction.

                    The craftsmanship behind this filter is abundantly apparent, everything from the glass to the titanium ring. Wish that it came with a hard case for the price. Just the same, it's survived bouncy journeys in its soft case.

                            I have been using this filter nonstop. It's been great for landscape shots. I was using it all over the Badlands National Park in SD. I love the color it adds to a midday sun while leaving plenty of detail in the shadows of the cavernous landscapes. The little black slip case it comes with is great too. If you have two screw-on filters that are the same size, you can fit both in it. I bought the 77mm knowing I will upgrade to more professional lenses, but I didn't realize I would get the full effect on my current lenses that have a smaller front element. It still looks great though.

                              I have never written about any filters but I would be remiss if i did not comment on the high quality and reasonable prices of Tiffen filters--They fit the camera lens perfectly, The graduated piece turns smoothly. I tested it on my D90,D3100 and Sigma 17-50. I was surprised how much better the shot of the landscape and sky looked with this on my lens.

                              I find a circular ND filter useful for many situations, this is a great product for to fill that need. Tiffen filters were always lower quality in my mind; however, this on is top notch. Glass! beats B+W and Hoya in build and quality.

                                For the right high contrast landscape image, i.e. sunset/sunrise, this screw-on circular ND Grad filter is excellent. It provides detail in a very bright sky, and smoothly transitions between the sky and properly exposed foreground. The filter is well constructed with high quality glass and coatings. I have used 4 x 4 resin filters with Cokin and Lee holders and find this circular filter much easier to use. You may need to crop your image very slightly to get the horizon line exact, but it is so much easier than fussing with filter holders and resin filters.

                                    I purchased this filter because I have enjoyed taking pictures of sunrises, but have had trouble with exposure and blown out foreground. Using this filter will be my practice for getting better exposure. I am impressed with the quality of this lens.

                                      Graduated filters either work well or they don't and I use this particular filter when I have pale blue skies or need to darken up the background or for shooting a graduated background. Photoshop aside, there are times when it's best to make the effect on site and this does a great job.
                                      It would be nice if Tiffen would make a small handle to help turn the filter. I have tendency to fingerprint the surface when turning it.

                                        I didn't want anything less than a .6 and I'm glad I went with this one. With this filter I can shoot into the sun at 3PM for environmental portraits and still have enough shadow detail that a slight relight effect in post makes for a great shot, and I still get a deep blue sky. The effect is pronounced enough you can easily see when you have it oriented right. I do wish it came with a hard plastic case instead of the slip pouch.

                                          Would prefer a 3-stop version, but didn't notice any color change, and the gradation of the filter works fine for me. Using this with a 77-to-72mm step-down adapter.

                                            Compared this vs Formatt and B+W. This Tiffen is the best in terms of true color, and 0.6 is the right density to achieve natural looking skies. However, the graduation is too soft and only shows an effect on the top quarter of the image height.

                                              Nice quality filter. The 0.6 seems just about right, but I'd like to compare it to a 0.9 to see if that would be too much. Waiting for the snow to melt here, as it's a bit pointless to use when both the sky and the ground are equally bright. The transition seems just a bit too soft - would like a bit more hardness to it, or would like to see the shaded area have more density closer to the transition, rather than fade in over that half of the glass. The coating is nice, really cuts glare, but is very easy to smudge. It's a bit of a pain to clean especially with those Zeiss pre-moistened lens cloths - seems they just make endless streaks.
