  • Ideal for HD Cameras
  • ColorCore Water White Glass

The Tiffen 77mm Full Spectrum IRND 1.8 Filter is a combination of both an infrared control filter and a 1.8 neutral density filter. An IRND is ideal for HD cameras, which have greater low-light sensitivity and, subsequently, an increased susceptibility to IR contamination. When using a standard neutral density filter to counter the increased light sensitivity afforded by the HD sensor, the effects of infrared pollution become more apparent. This filter combines an ND filter with a comparable IR control filter to eliminate the spill of infrared light reaching the sensor while still maintaining the extra exposure benefits of a neutral density filter.

This filter is constructed from Water White glass and 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 mounting to precision metal rings.

Infrared control filter helps to block infrared pollution from affecting the color fidelity of imagery; this enables a wider color gamut and truer colors, especially noticeable in the darker regions of the image.
1.8 neutral density filter requires a 6 stop increase in exposure for normal results.

        Comments about Tiffen 77mm Full Spectrum IRND 1.8 Filter:

        Digital sensors are sensitive to IR light, and most ND filters do not specifically filter it out. So with conventional ND filters of over 3 stops, you can usually see IR contamination in the file visible as a variable orange color shift across the visible spectrum. Unfortunately, this is not easily correctable with a WB correction or even dedicated white-frame correction as it alters colors unevenly across the spectrum. These Tiffen IR cut plus ND filters block the excessive IR contamination and allow for more natural final white balance. However, these filters are not perfect either, especially when used with wideangle lenses, and will impart a slight cyan/blue cast that gets more prominent toward the outer edges. The good news is this particular change is relatively small and can be effectively corrected with a minor WB change, and completely corrected with a custom "white" frame correction.
