Product Highlights
  • 2 Stop Graduated Neutral Density Filter
  • Reduce Exposure in Selective Areas
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND 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.

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, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

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.

      I think this nd grad filter has worked pretty well. It helps on most occasions where the sky is much brighter then the ground. As most of you know already, without these sorts of filters it becomes very difficult to get a properly exposed sky and ground.

      The other method would be to use a tripod and use bracket exposure and take 3-5 shots and photoshop the image.

      This ND Grad. filter works MOST of the time, but there will be times when you'll need photoshop work or multiple exposures. Sometimes the sky is just too bright and even a 1.2 grad is not enough. Example would be 12-1PM in the afternoon, no clouds, summer sun and you're landscape has a lot of light colors. Total blow out. Multiple exposures needed :D.

      The only thing that I think needs improvement is the amount of graduation in this filter. If it's graduation were 10-20% softer this would be perfect for its price range. Right now it doesn't stop at a hard line but the grad is on the hard side.

      The filter, optically wise, is fine, the build quality however is poor. Firstly, the glass rattles within the rotating circle and slips sometimes when you rotate it. Secondly, the threading on it is horrible. I have attached it to a Tiffen step up ring and now it is completely stuck. I have tried hot towels and even cooling the filter to get it off with no luck. I now need to buy a set of filter wrenches and will likely have to wrench it off every time I use it. Not exactly a quick swap. My B&W filters on the other hand work perfectly. Don't bother with this Tiffen circular GND filter. Just get the square ones.

        Comments about Tiffen 77mm Graduated 0.6 ND Filter:

        I chose this grade and brand based on advice from friend especially since it is glass rather than plastic. Easy to see where the darker area is through viewfinder when you are turning it and therefore easy to angle properly for sky/water edge which you want to darken. One thing I didn't think about was that it is pretty much a 50:50 split when often it is more aesthetic to put a horizon on a 1/3 or 2/3 split but this could be achieved in cropping. Helped me get some silky textures to waves coming in on the bay.

              It does what it's supposed to do, but it seems to be very poorly put together. The glass rattles around inside the housing and it can shift and move by itself. This doesn't make it unusable, but it is definitely annoying. Other than that, it fits well and I've had no other issues with it.

                I very much enjoy taking photos of sunrise and sunsets. This filter by Tiffen has improved my results. It is a heavier filter, not quite as thin as some. Definitely tricks the camera into getting a better shot.

                  I will use this filter in landscape photograpy as well as sunsets and sunrises.
                  Tiffen has a reputation for high quality products and this filter is no exception. Well-built with a solid feel to it. Most of my other filters are of the Tiffen brand.
                  It would be nice if it came in a soft padded pouch, but other than that I have no complaints at all.

                    I utilize this filter with a wide-angle 14mm prime for landscape photography. It's thin enough to use on top of the UV filter without causing unsightly vignetting in the picture. I use this filter often with my photos, and I'm thoroughly impressed!

                                Great product for the price! No blown out skies on my shoot...interesting filter to play with for special effects.

                                    I wonder if the item received is defective but mine has a small black point in its center and it's clearly visible. I had to go to France for a shooting so I did not have time to send it back for replacement. I was disappointed first and I decided to keep it for the coming shoot. I could not see the spot on my shot, maybe it's so close to the lens that it's no problem. We'll see in the future.
                                    Just because I'm expecting to receive a free from defect product, I give this a 2 star rating.

                                        Great filter for landscape photography when the horizon and background is significantly brighter than the foreground. Excellent for use when the horizon is straight.

                                            Although I'm not using this to take pictures... I am using it for outdoor footage. This filter was exactly what I was looking for. Not to mention the price was actually lower than many other sites out there.

                                              A not must have filter. The grad is half way down the filter which is a little bit too far for most sky situations. Will still use my 4" x 6" in a matte box in front of the camera in future.
