    Bought this set and was so impressed when I took my first photo. What I love is being able to gang together several filters as all are threaded. It brought me to a whole new level of photography and I have made some very successful photos with them. Very happy.

    Good value for price.

    Covers the most needed range if you are shooting DSLR video. Better than using Cokin as these are glass and much more durable.

    Covers the most needed range if you are shooting DSLR video. Better than using Cokin as these are glass and much more durable.

    I bought these rather than a Fader ND (of various brands) because reports of image degradation and X patterns were so inconsistent. Also because this gives you multiple filters 1 stop apart, you have room to use more then one camera and adjust iso to suit the filter.

    There is a slight green color cast that varies filter to filter. If you shoot video, you will need to white balance between changing or stacking filters.

    A couple of the filters where not properly cleaned and had some kind of manufacturing chemical on them that needed to be cleaned off with windex.

          Comments about Tiffen 77mm Digital Neutral Density Filter Kit:

          These are excellent filters for anyone!I was originally considering getting a Variable neutral density for nearly the same cost, but the "X" effect and the fact they they are subject to considerably more color cast than fixed ND's made me stay away. You can block out 2,3,4,5,6,7,and 9 stops of light just by stacking these filters, and if you're using a step up ring from a smaller lens, say 62mm, you experience little to no vingetting from the filters since they are 77mm.These filters came with perfect threads, no scratches and a case! Excellent value for the money and a wonderful product that will continue serving me well for years to come.

                Obviously, I use these filters to reduce the amount of light entering the camera in order to be more creative with the selective combination of aperture and shutter speed. To that end, they perform magnificently.

                      These filters enable me to shoot at very slow shutter speeds in bright sunlight which makes it possible to turn flowing water into cotton candy or create ghosting images other than at night. In other words, it adds an extra element of fun.

                        Want to try out longer exposures while photographing sand hill cranes at Kearney, NE this weekend. Will play with the water smoothing effect on the Platte to reduce distraction of flowing water.

                          I love how easy these are to use and how well made the glass is. I was worried about vignetting when stacking from some of the reviews but as I'm using a 77mm I don't notice it at all. Great alone or stacked all three.

                            Filters are very well built and stack with no apparent problems. Allow me to get that silky effect for running water. I like to ability to add filters as necessary for different conditions. Nice case to store the filters.

                              Filter lasted 2 outings before color shift became too much and could not correct for it, despite what Tiffen recommends.

                                I recently just found out about the Tiffen graduated filter. Wish someone had told me about that little guy before I bought all three of these.

                                  I needed an ND set for use with my Nikon lenses while shooting video. This convenient set from Tiffen did the job. Come in a handy pouch that I keep inside my larger bag so they're organized, easy to find, and protected. They go on and off the lenses quite a bit, depending upon exactly how I want to do the shot. Worth the money, which isn't too expensive.

                                    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.

                                      Threads on straight if you allow gravity to settle it into the threads of the lens, then spin it ever so lightly. Nice glass optics, not too much spotting in the coating and no strange marking showing up in the photos. They work great for shooting at 1.2 - 2.8 with flash. Worth the buy for it's price.

                                            A set of ND's are pretty necessary for any photographer. This is a great set for the price.

                                            Use these filters for waterfalls, fountains or anytime I want a long exposure in bright light or at a flowing water feature. This is a nice kit. 3 filters and a case that holds 6 filters.

                                              These fliters are ok for the price. They come with a fliter case but the quality is cheap and they are not as well protected as I would like.

                                                Used Tiffen's Neutral Density filters on the Tamron 70-200mm f2.8 lens on a Nikon D600. White balance and image sharpness was good. Great value and performance for the money!

                                                  I am experimenting with ND filters currently by cutting ambient light and using a monobloc to light the subject for that "golden light" at anytime of the day, while using wide open aperature.

                                                  I love the beefy construction, and carry case is nice. I wish the carry case had a belt loop, but thats a minor detail.

                                                  Attached you will find a test shot I've taken with a ND 1.2 + d600 + 70-200 @ f2.8 + iso200 + einstein at 1/4 power with a beauty dish taken on a bright sunny day at 3-4pm.

                                                  WB seems spot on.

                                                    Needed this kit to complete my landscape tools. Now I can shoot better in brighter conditions since I can't always shoot under ideal conditions.
