The Tiffen 52mm 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

        Quality filters in the most commonly used densities. Great when you don't need the speed of Vari ND, because to my eye there is no discernible compromise on image quality. Very reasonable price too.

          They do the job as advertised for a great price your getting 3 filters. Alone they work great. I got these because I cannot afford a big stopper yet and they are handy but when you stack them you you'll start to see a ring at the edge of your photos.

                                I've been testing it for a couple of weeks now. The results are awesome. It does what it says it does beautifully. One of my concern while buying these filters was the option to stack them. Yes, I did read about the adjustable ND filters vs combining 2 or more ND filters together, and I went with this set. I stacked all three filters and tested them out and they work beautifully with no vignetting.

                                      I wanted to play with moving water shots and these were a great deal- used them a LOT last summer. Also terrific for sand and snow. If you want to stack them, though, for bright daylight long exposures, you'll get vignetting with a wide-angle lens, buy a bigger set and a step-up ring. Focus BEFORE you put them on, though!

                                          I didn't need all the filters as they are very similar in their benefits, but they were a good value and came with a great case to house them.

                                              I use these filters on my Nikkor 35mm f/1.8. The results are very good. Gives alot of detail when shooting in bright conditions. You can slow down the shutter speed to create blurring but a stronger ND filter would be better for waterfalls. Overall a solid product with high quality glass.These filters prove you don't have to spend a fortune for quality filters.Comes with nice case.

                                                I use these filters on a nikon 28mm 2.8 Lens while taking portrait pictures in bright sunny situations. These filters give almost complete over the amount of light entering your camera. On a bright day at the beach when your getting a meter reading on your model of f/22 or f/32, When I put one of the filters on I can knock that aperture down to an f8 or f5.6. So far no complaints I think you get a decent working product for a good price compared to some of the more pricer filters out there
