Product Highlights
  • Solid Neutral Density 1.2 Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length
  • ColorCore Technology

The Tiffen 4 x 4" ND 1.2 Filter is a solid neutral density filter providing a 4 stop exposure. This 1.2 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 and grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch. This filter measures 4 x 4" / 101.6 x 101.6mm.

1.2 solid ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 4 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.

          We have the full series of Tiffen 4x4 filters from .3 to 1.2. We use these for videography from Canon HDSLRs to Red Digital Cinema 4k & 5k.

          The consistency between the filters, bought several years apart, is excellent, and the color balance is quite neutral.

          Didn't fit Lee Filter holder

          Comments about Tiffen 4 x 4" ND 1.2 Filter:

          I bought this filter without realizing that it doesn't fit the Lee filter holder. Thickness of the glass is too big for filter holders.

          I can't comment on the quality as i didn't even it otherwise.

            I use the 1.2 ND Tiffen filter (4"x4")in my Chrozeille matt box to create greater shallow depth of field and to help with the contrast ratios.

                  Comments about Tiffen 4 x 4" ND 1.2 Filter:

                  I use a Canon EOS Rebel T2i, primarily for HD video. This ND filter, at a 4-stop loss, allows me shallower depth of field when needed in brighter light.

                  This is especially necessary for shooting video. Under artificial light (anything that isn't sunlight), the frame rate must stay at 1/60 or there will be artifacts as the frame rate fights with the pulsation of the electrical system and the light. Adding ND allows a constant 1/60 frame rate, while adjusting aperture as needed. (Note to those in PAL countries, frame rate should be at 1/50 to match the 50Hz electrical system.)

                  This filter is clean and clear. It takes exposure down by 4 stops and does not degrade the image.
