The Tiffen 77mm Indie Neutral Density Filter Kit is a complete filter outfit (4 filters) for the outdoor shooter who wishes to create special effects without having to put in any post-production time. This combination of neutral density filters gives you the freedom to make some unique and effective images that would ordinarily not be possible.

The kit contains a 1-stop (0.3), 2-stop (0.6), 3-stop (0.9) and 4-stop (1.2) set of ND filters. Using these filters permits you to use slower shutter speeds that can produce blurred effects of nature, sports or any action you choose, i.e. flowing water, birds in flight, cars - just about anything you can think of. It also permits you to shoot on the beach or in bright light when using high speed ISO ratings by enabling slower shutter speeds to be employed.  Irrespective of the medium you are using such as film, digital, video or cine, neutral density filters are quite valuable and should be a part of any shooter's arsenal of tools.  

Often it is necessary or desirable to control the light intensity within a given frame. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. Exposing for the foreground will produce a washed-out, over-exposed sky while exposing for the sky will leave the foreground dark and under-exposed. A neutral density filter will allow you to retain exposure control but will not affect the color of the image.

Neutral Density filters allow you to shoot under conditions that would normally be impossible to shoot under - particularly outside in snow, beach or extreme bright light scenarios. For the landscape photographer, irrespective of the format you use (film, digital, video or cine), this filter is almost a necessity because it permits you to maintain creative control over a tough lighting venue while still maintaining proper exposure.

For those who like moody, soft creative looks to their images, this filter can produce blurred movement when used with waterfalls, fast moving objects (cars, etc) and even nature subjects such as birds in flight or running animals. There are people who even use them on their iPhone to capture interesting images when a traditional camera isn't handy.

Tiffen uses the highest quality Water White Glass that contains an anti-glare and anti-reflective coating. This glass reduces the greenish tint sometimes common in standard glass. Water White Glass permits accurate color transmission. It is clear to the eye and is characterized by an optically pure composition that delivers the highest caliber of image possible.

Tiffen, a leader in the filter industry, proudly makes its filters in the USA and backs up its products with a solid 10-year warranty.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

Enables slow shutter speeds to be used with high speed ISO ratings; create dramatic images with blurred movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
Permits greater creative control by allowing wider apertures to be used which helps separate subjects from their background
Reduces the amount of light entering the lens - allows use of slower shutter speeds with higher ISO settings on digital cameras, high-speed films, video and cine cameras
It is always difficult to use film, digital or video cameras under bright light conditions such as snow, sand or other bright scenes since these conditions can easily cause overexposure. This filter removes the challenge of recording images under these conditions by permitting the photographer to control the proper exposure while still maintaining creative control

Top Hollywood motion picture studios rely on Tiffen filters for their multi-million-dollar productions Superior quality and design make Tiffen the overwhelming choice of moviemakers, professional photographers and even NASA

      Comments about Tiffen 77mm Indie Neutral Density Filter Kit (0.3, 0.6, 0.9, 1.2 ND Filters):

      We recently received this set at work for our Canon 5D Mk IIIs. I've always been impressed with Tiffen's products and these ND filters live up to the company's great name. Clear image and very little to no color change make these filters the perfect pairing with my 85mm prime lens.

      There is a little bit of flare, not much, but noticeable if you know what to look for. And they came a bit dirty out of the case, but they were easily cleaned.

      I'm very happy with this product and I'll be looking to Tiffen first for any additional filter needs.

      I ding them one star for not being available in cinema 80mm size. Otherwise, much better than all the variable ND's out there.

        Did quite a bit of research before buying. This kit seemed to be the best value and I was correct. No vignette experienced. I do wish the bag was a little tighter when closing, but at least it came with one.

              I bought the kit to use on a short film I was working on to try to get more depth of field. I was shooting with the 24-105mm Canon lens and this kit is the perfect compliment. The visual quality was just spectacular and I couldn't have hoped for more from these filters. They are also stackable so you have even more range with your filters, which was an added bonus. The kit also includes a very nice carrying case, with enough space and padding that I feel comfortable storing them in. This was a great investment and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

                    Sharp glass and, as long as i've noticed, no color shift. Basically these were the only things i was looking for in vari-ND filters at the same price range but failed to find. Of course that having many filters instead of just one can make things a little more complicated, but in the end i prefer a kit of good quality filters in front of my expensive lens than one cheaper piece of glass that cause aberrations. With this Tiffen kit i could get this quality and not break the bank.

                    I decided to go with this 77mm stackable set rather than the more expensive vario 8 or 10x filter. I already have a good quality polarizer. I know I will limit some wide angle views and have only taken a few frames and very satisfied with results.

                      I use them to control the light getting to my camera, therefore controling my exposure. It is perfect when I fully control the lighting or under consistent weather patterns when outdoors. Paper protecting filters seem a bit flimsy. Maybe some type of protecttive cloth for each lense will help longevity of filters

                            These filters screw onto the lens easily and block the light in order to capture a long exposure to creat a blur in water. (So far that's all I've used them for.) I've stacked all four together and I did not notice any adverse effects in the resulting photo. I also like the case, which makes it easy to access the filters, put them away when I'm done, and keep them safe when not in use. A really nice addition to my camera bag.

                              I use these filters to shoot time-lapse of sunrise and sunset, the so-called "holy grail" of time-lapse, on my 5D MKII. They help extend the number of stops I can shoot through without causing significant color shifts. The clarity of the white water glass is excellent! You can't beat the quality, especially for such a low price.

                                  This set of filters is great for video. I have both sets and I use them all the time. I started with just the 1.5 - 2.1 set but it was a bit strong for these cloudy days in the south island of New Zealand. The pouch is great as well. You can just clip it to your belt and you're ready to go. It's a good investment if you're shooting indie narrative films. You can still use this with a matte box if your matte box swings away for easy access. For documentary work and run n gun I still prefer the Vari ND especially when I'm shooting in a sunny day with some clouds and I need to correct the exposure smoothly on the spot without changing the ISO or stoping the recording. But you can shoot documentary and interviews with this set but be prepared to change ISO if you need to correct exposure on the spot when the sun comes out suddenly. I'm very happy with this set of filters.

                                    This kit is often sold out at B&H so I signed up for the automatic notification when available. After waiting over a month the filter kit was finally available. The filters are sturdy and clear. I have used the filters for the past 2 months and they have exceeded my expectations.

                                    I primarily use the filters to reduce light for outdoor sports photography with my Canon 7D and 70-200mm 2.8L lens.

                                        The best filters you can buy for the money. There is no colour shift and the glass is very sharp.

                                        Don't put cheap filter glass infront of your expensive lens glass.

                                            Awesome image quality. The sharpest ND i've used. In the past I used fader nds and there's no comparison. No color shifts. The images are tack sharp. Even with just the basic 1-4 stop kit you'll be able to screw on a combination of filters to get you up to 7 stops with two filters.

                                            I purchased the filter kit without IR because of Shane's advice on his blog that the IR will bleed colors. Best purchase I've made for my glasses.
