Does it have male/female screw threads? Whats the size of the threads? Whats the size of the barrel? Can a 114mm Clamp on matte box fit on this?
Asked by: Marco
According to Tiffen, they state that the 4.5” filters are not threaded and has no internal/external threads, as they are a drop-in style filter made for adapters. As such, the listed 4.5" size reflects the total size of the filter (the outer diameter) which would fit into a 4.5” holder.

question

Can this filter be used in conjunction with a variable ND filter?
Asked by: Erol C.
Yes, you would have to mount the 82mm Black Satin filter to your camera lens first, then mount the Tiffen 82VND:<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/821128-REG/Tiffen_82VND_82mm_Variable_Neutral_Density.html target= _blank >http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/821128-REG/Tiffen_82VND_82mm_Variable_Neutral_Density.html</a>

The higher the number, the greater the diffusion effect. A 2 is twice as powerful as a 1, a 3 is twice as powerful as a 2, etc.
