The Tiffen 49mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit is a complete set of filters to help you get better shots in bright light as well as assisting you with some special effect images.

Neutral Density filters have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film.

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situation
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Neutral Density Factors

ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO by 1/4)
ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO by 1/8)
ND1.2 (exposure adjustment = 4 stops, reduces ISO by 1/16

        Comments about Tiffen 49mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

        The Panasonic AG AC90 and AC90A are fantastic camears, but the lack on board filters. Cheap filters did not work well for me, and so I gave these a shot. I am very happy with the build quality, although mine had dirt on them and needed cleaning out of the package...

            Comments about Tiffen 49mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

            glass came very dirty and smudged. When you use all three together, you get a 1/2 strip down the right side of the photo. Not very helpful in any kind of daylight. Pretty much a waste of money. Save for the good ones.

                Comments about Tiffen 49mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

                I did a test of all three of these ND filters because I read about the IR problems with ND filters on various types of black cloth. These have it and I am going to need an IR filter to go with them if I shoot people wearing black clothing outdoors. The red tint on the cloth is most notable as you increase the ND strength, but still quite visible on the ND1. You may see some IR on other items with the ND3 if you look for it. From the review I read this IR is very common and can be found on much more expensive NDs too. Tiffen also makes more expensive NDs with IR but I don't see them in the 49mm size.

                  I've only had these filters for a couple weeks and have used them loads of times! They work great even on the sunniest of days!
