The Tiffen 82mm 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

      veeeery good!

      The filters let you use very open aperture, even in very lighten situation.
      And also use long exposure in lighten situations as well, using closed diafragma, you can long expose your shot.

      These filters are great! I use them all the time for my landscape shots, and the ability to stack all 3 of them is very useful. They come with a little bag, which seems pretty durable, and holds 6 filters.

          I'm an aspiring amateur photographer who wanted to try long exposure. I have a trip planned to Portland, OR. I used these filters last weekend at a local river with a water fall in my area (Michigan). I was able to easily get the desired effect after only a few tries. Great product and price.

            If you are a DSLR shooter and don't feel good about a variable ND filter - these are your best solution. I like the fact that these come in their own case and have room for a cleaning cloth.

            Great price for a great product.

              Comments about Tiffen 82mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

              I got the kit since it allows me to step down 9 stops in a combination of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 stops by using 1, 2 or all 3 glass filters. I use it to help with long exposure photography and times where there is just too much light for me to be able to slow my shutter or open my aperture.

              The glass is fine and easy to clean. The only thing I can ding for 1 star is how they screw on. Little tough to get onto the lens and together and also to take apart. NEVER tighten too much or else you will have problems getting them apart. Its the price you pay for getting aluminum versus something like brass. But like I said, if you are looking into getting into the ND filter chapter of photography and wanted something inexpensive to try out before you go out for the big guns (Lee Filters) then this is a very versatile kit.

                      ND Filters are the most component of maintaining quality if you are shoot outdoors. This filter kit is great. The different f stop range allows me to use the necessary filter for the occasion.

                          I bought this kit because it enabled me add up to 4 stops of neutral density when using my Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 L Series II lens in the range 16-20mm. The Singh-Ray Vari-ND would vignette when using those focal lengths. In the focal length range 20-35mm, (where the Vari-ND would not vignette) I can stack filters to get as much as 7 stops -- only 1 stop less than the Singh-Ray Vari-ND. The cost was only half that of the Vari-ND. The disadvantages of my approach are the greater bulk and weight of the kit compared to the Vari-ND and the slight extra time required to stack filters.

                              Comments about Tiffen 82mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

                              The filters let you use very open aperture, even in very lighten situation.
                              And also use long exposure in lighten situations as well, using closed diafragma, you can long expose your shot.
