Tiffen 58mm 0.9 Neutral Density Filter

Product Highlights
  • 0.9 Solid ND Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 58mm 0.9 Neutral Density Filter is a solid ND filter providing a 3 stop exposure reduction. This 0.9 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.

0.9 neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 3 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

      I used the neutral density filter for blurring water motion of waterfalls while on a vacation in California and Oregon. I didn't have bright sunlight too often, so I didn't get to know the full potential of the product, but it worked well when I did use it. I didn't have any issues with color hue changes as some articles on neutral density filters indicate can occur. Be aware of vignetting if using with other filters and of loosing too much light as with any neutral density filter.

      I purchased six of these for use in long term time-lapse camera set-ups. Purchased US made as I expected high quality. Unfortunately these ND filters let me down. In the Australian sun they all began to fade. Firstly the outside blackened metal rings turned bronze, then extra light seemed to be reflected into the glass closest to the actual filter and this area started fading and turning green. The result was a darker area toward the center of the filters turning a greenish colour at the edges. The time-lapse pictures captured also started to gradually get a green colour caste. Not good!! Some cheaper filters from Japan had no such issues, in fact have had a couple in the field for over three years.

      So for short term use these maybe just fine. If however you intend to expose them to longer term light, such as long term time-lapse applications, then be wary.

      I would avoid anyway as they exhibit fading over time which is not helpful for consistent results.

        Sharpness and image quality is great. Don't be concerned about that. Great value compared to B+W and other overpriced options. You'll never know the difference.

                                      When shooting video in full daylight the only way to open up the aperture to get a shallow depth of field is to use ND filters. This does the job at a good price.

                                                This is my first ND filter and I use it mostly for videography rather than photography so this review may or may not matter those who only use it for photography. Its great for sunny outdoors when you want to get that high aperture settings. For the most part, it handles nicely with an aperture setting of 3 or above but anywhere below that and the shots can be overexposed. For example, I also have an identical 52mm filter for the Canon 50mm f1.8 and some of the highlights were starting to become overexposed as the aperature dropped below 3 and the picture was pretty much completely white at the 1.8 setting even in the shade of a sunny afternoon. Another thing I didn't like too much was the case it came in. I don't really have a good place to store my ND filters so I just use the plastic box it comes in. It has some pretty good freeplay in there which worries me about the filter being shaken up too much. The box for the 52mm was chipped off and some of the debree went inside. Luckily it didn't scratch anything but it still kinda ticked me off.

                                                Aside from that, its a good ND filter. It does what it does and is pretty useful in a lot of situations. If you want to go for a higher aperture setting, go for a darker filter.

                                                      Marvelous Ziess lenses aren't any good when there's TOO MUCH LIGHT. Fortunately I had my old Canon lens with these filters. They saved the shoot. Now, to get them for the Zeiss.

                                                        This filter does exactally what I wanted by reducing the light and allowing me to use a longer exposure time to blur moving water.
