I wasn't expecting the greatest ND filter because of the low cost of this item, but I was pleasantly surprised with this filter. It works great with photos taken at the beach, on the waterfront, landscape, and in bright sunshine overall. I am glad I didn't pay over $100 for another brand!

Comments about Tiffen 72mm Graduated 0.6 ND Filter:

I use this product for all of my outdoor nature/landscape work and it is brilliant. It makes the post-production time much less, and it evens everything out perfectly. The only thing that I did not like (which is the case with most filters) is that once it's on the lens, that little guy is STAYING on there. Other than that, I love this product!

        Using this on a video camera where I need to balance the sky and ground. This does a great job, the image quality is very good. It has a fairly thin profile that still allows it to fit under my lens hood. Good quality construction.

            It's a nice filter for the lens, the only problem is the graduation is so strong that you can notice on the scenarios you barely need it.

                Only have used it a couple of times so far, but have been very happy with the results. It toned down the over bright sky, and brought shadows out. Considering that it was less expensive than other filters I looked at, it is a good value for your money.

                      Using this on a 180mm linhoff 617 S III camera lens. The filter is used to darken gray skies, which contrast filters cannot do. This Tiffen filter is GLASS, made in the U.S.A. and comes with a little filter how-to booklet free, like a prize in a Cracker box. The competition, some excellent manufacturers included, made this filter only in plastic. So, I went for US glass.

                      I used the filter for the first time last week and was very satisfied with the performance. A great filter at a great price. I used this on a Nikon 18mm-200mm lens and I got a fair amount of vignetting in the corners at 18mm.

                          This has got to be the most amazing filter I have ever used. It does wonders for landscape photography. The best use is during days with partly cloudy skys. It makes the blues blue and the clouds just pop! I used it during a recent hike and when I got home to play with my shots in Lightroom 3, the results were like composing and HDR photo. I found the best settings in the evaluate exposure setting is a -1 exposure setting. Then when you get it in LR3, max out recovery, pump up the fill light, smooth out with the blacks and tweek clarity and vibrance to taste. You'll be amazed at the results! This has got to be in your camera bag or if not, on your wish list.

                              This is the first ND filter (Tiffen 72mm Color-Grad Neutral Density) I've had. I used it for twighlight shots at a marina to even tones between the sky and water. It worked for me. The workshop instructor (a commercial photographer) asked the other participants to see the effect in my camera LCD screen. For the people that didn't have a ND filter, he advised them to get one. And I liked the results of the filter when viewing the images on my computer screen.
