Product Highlights
  • 0.9 Solid Neutral Density Filter

The Tiffen 58mm aXent Neutral Density 0.9 Filter is a solid ND filter with a 8x filter factor that provides a 3 stop exposure reduction. Its 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.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and is ideal for use with other filters.

      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.

              3 stops is just about right to cut enough exposure in order to shoot video at larger aperture and limit depth of field. To cut further I add a polarizer filter on.

                                            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.

                                              I bought this filter to shoot at wider apertures on bright and sunny days. It works well and I'm happy with my purchase.

                                                    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.
