The Tiffen 58mm aXent 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.

0.6 neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 2 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and is ideal for use with other filters.

      I used this lens the other day on my Super-Takumar 135mm f/2.5 lens at 1:00 in the afternoon and it allowed me to shoot wide open in the full sunlight. I originaly assumed an ND filter always came gradated but found out that this is not the case. Even so, i'm happy with my purchase and the quality of Tiffen filters is unmatched.

      This tiffen filter is precisely made and features an even effect all over the crystal.
      I think it's very reflective and that maybe a problem. Tiffen sells a high transmission version of this filter anyway.
      This was my first purchase of Tiffen products and I'm very satisfied so far

                  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 $[$] filter so I'll live with it.

                          I live in southern Arizona and purchased this filter for controlling DOF in full sun. As an added bonus it really provides great color saturation. Also plan to use this for long exposure shots.

                            I have and used ND filters, but I needed additional filter for my waterfall shots. Works great stacking for that "silky" look in the water. You need this filter for better photographs in bright sun conditions, snow, waterfalls. Good for stacking also to get higher ND values.

                              Read about ND filters and never used one before. This works perfecting on my camcorder. Really allowed me to change the focus area in bright sun by opening up the lens. I needed the background out of focus and this filter made it easy.

                                        When I bought my Canon 50mm f/1.8 I quickly realized that there were a lot of shots that let too much light in; especially when taking short Depth Of Field shots. The ND filter is a good way to help get those shots. This filter has given me more flexibility, is well-constructed, and does seem to have any downsides.

                                          This is no B&W as far as build goes but the glass will last and it serves it's perfect purpose without any discoloring whatsoever. Please buy if you need an ND Filter.

                                            This filter is great for motion shots where you want to show that there is motion but still maintain a clear shot of the subject! Rather than risk missing that one time perfect shot while trying different settings, this helps to ensure a great shot every time. I actually use it when I am photographing active toddlers playing!

                                                It's an ND filter. It's Tiffen. What more do you need to know?

                                                  I used this lens the other day on my Super-Takumar 135mm f/2.5 lens at 1:00 in the afternoon and it allowed me to shoot wide open in the full sunlight. I originaly assumed an ND filter always came gradated but found out that this is not the case. Even so, i'm happy with my purchase and the quality of Tiffen filters is unmatched.

                                                    I bought this filter to get better waterfall shots, even when it is bright out. So far I have had great results. I plan to get another one!
