The Tiffen 52mm Neutral Density 0.6 Filter is a solid ND filter with a 4x filter factor that provides a 2 stop exposure reduction. Its 0.6 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

This filter is 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.

      I purchased this nd filter to use during sunny beach shoots with my nikon d300 and in the studio to cut the light from my strobes. It does exactly what I expect it to do with no problems whatsoever. I have read that the darkness of the filter makes it difficult to compose but I didnt notice that when I was shooting.

      I would definitely recommend this filter and plan to purchase another one for my 72mm lenses.

        This allows for a slow shutter speed thus allowing the flow of water to be more dynamic. Must remember to also limit to a low ISO speed.

            These are my first ND filters and within my budget. Taking pictures in Florida is a challenge with so much sun so having something quick and portable is a must.

            My only issue is a scratch as if it was used or handled while on a retail shelf before it was sent to me. I'm not going to spend shipping to replace a $10 filter so I'll live with it.

            I actually bought this as a present for my husband. He has only used it once, but it does the job that you would expect it to do. He said it works great! This is the first ND filter he has ever used. We look forward to using it more this summer.

                Works well when I want to use a slower shutter speed when it's bright outside. For even slower shutter speeds, I will need to go to a denser filter.

                    Perfect solution for family pictures when high-contrast scene is inevitable, such as at the beach.
                    It allows me to use my telephoto at wider aperture, to further isolate the subject.
                    The lower price made me choose this item, instead of the Hoya.

                            I was looking for a neutral density filter so that I could play around with longer exposures in daylight and this definitely fit the bill. Good construction and price. I bought this along with another stronger filter.

                              My studio lights could only be dimmed so much, and shutter speed was irrelevant. This filter allowed me to open my lens all the way for the shallow depth of field I wanted.

                                      I haven't fully tested out the filter but of the few shots I have taken with it on they all turned out great. It's a great product and will defiantly purchase from this company again.

                                          This is great for allowing you to slow down shutter speed by 2 stops or opening aperture 2 stops. It works like it should and is very affordable. I also have the ND 0.9. It also works very well but knocks the light down by 3 stops.

                                            I purchased this nd filter to use during sunny beach shoots with my nikon d300 and in the studio to cut the light from my strobes. It does exactly what I expect it to do with no problems whatsoever. I have read that the darkness of the filter makes it difficult to compose but I didnt notice that when I was shooting.

                                            I would definitely recommend this filter and plan to purchase another one for my 72mm lenses.

                                              This filter is sufficiently well built and does not cause any noticeable drop in image quality. It helps tremendously when shooting wide open on a sunny day for portraiture. Great value for the money.
