Tiffen 62DVSEK3 overview

  • 1Description

The 62mm Scenic Enhancement Kit 3 from Tiffen is almost a must for anyone who enjoys shooting outdoors capturing vivid landscapes and vistas. With this kit, you will be able to transform a simple scene into an image worth framing.  

Sunset Color Grad
Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. This is especially true in situations where you don't have total light control, as in bright contrasty landscapes. A Graduated Sunset filter can change an ordinary sunrise or sunset into something spectacular by adding intensity to the sky. It will enhance the sky while leaving the lower half of the filter unaffected.  

Sometimes it is also desirable to add color to part of the photograph. For example, to add blue to only the sky. The Sunset Color Graduated filter is half-color, half-clear, with a graduated transition for blending into the scene. 

Enhancing Filter
This filter is a combination of rare earth elements in glass. It removes a portion of the spectrum in the orange region, increasing the color saturation of reddish objects by eliminating the muddy tones and maximizing the red hues with minimal effect on other colors.

We all love Autumn. When the leaves begin to change color, we're all left breathless by their eternal beauty. Capturing those stunning colors on film or digital becomes a priority for any avid photographer. The Enhancing filter is a most valuable tool when it comes to this kind of nature photography. An Enhancer increases the saturation of the red/orange end of the spectrum and makes earth tones thoroughly saturated and vibrant. Colors appear to "pop".

You will find that the Enhancing filter works best in early morning or later afternoon photography - when the light is intense rather than the semi-washed out illumination of mid-day. This filter is also optimized for use during the overcast days of Autumn. Try it on an old barn or wooden bridge.

Tiffen makes the Enhancing filter in many sizes to accommodate the many uses this filter has. This filter can be used by the pro and amateur alike, weekend photo warrior or pro cinematographer and must be considered an essential addition to any photo arsenal.

Color Graduated Neutral Density
This filter enables the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance.

Often it is necessary or desirable to balance the light intensity in one part of a scene with another. 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. This filter enables cloud detail to be kept correctly exposed in the picture.

Determining which graduated neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Choose the filter strength which adjusts the lighting to stay within the exposure latitude (greatest difference between bright/dark values) which still shows details in both of the digital or film medium in use. Neutral density filters are available in 1, 2, 3, or 4 stops to suit individual situations.

Great for digital video shooter who like the outdoors
A tool to 'create' images rather than just 'take' pictures

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed ISOs, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Superior Quality

Tiffen's ColorCore glass is produced through a process that entails permanently laminating the filter material in between two pieces of optical glass that are ground flat to tolerances of a ten-thousandth of an inch, then mounting them in precision aluminum rings.
The ColorCore process allows Tiffen to control the color and density of their filters, and the characteristics of special effects filters with much greater accuracy than typical dyed-in-the-mass filters, which usually exhibit color and density variations. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration
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.

    Tiffen 62DVSEK3 reviews

    62mm Scenic Enhancement Kit 3 - Sunset Color Grad 2, Enhancing Filter, Color Grad ND .6 Filters is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Kit Was Mislabeled on the B&H Website I ordered this kit in late April thinking that it contained the Sunset Color Grad 2 filter. When it arrived to my dismay, it had a Clear/Sunrise Grad Filter instead of the Sunset Grad Filter. I immediately called B&H and talked with Customer Service who suggested that I photo the filters and download it to them. They immediately suggested I send the kit back for a 'reorder' which I did the very next day. It took almost six weeks to get the new kit since B&H had to get one from Tiffen. When I received it I was excited to finally have the correct kit. However, when I opened it again it was the same as the first with a Clear/Sunrise instead of a color grad Sunset filter. Since B&H was closed for a religious holiday, I took the liberty to call Tiffen and talked with Chris in customer service who informed me that Tiffen was not offering the Sunset Filter in the screw-in style. He did tell me that they had the Pro100 Series (4 x 4) Skyline kit which included the Sunset Filter as well as a Twilight Filter. This kit cost $100 more than the original Senic Enhancement Kit. When B&H reopened, I called customer service and talked with Bennie who was very understdanding and apologized for the obvious mistake. He said he would correct their website for this kit and I asked for a refund which was no problem. I have since ordered the Pro100 Skyline Kit which I am very pleased although I have not used it yet. NOTE: This kit comes with a 77 and 82mm rings on which the filter bracket fits...so you will need a stepup ring for whatever camera lens you might use that is not one of those two mm. I purchased a 62 and 49mm to 77mm stepup rings. Everything seems to work well and I am looking forward to using this new kit when I am out west this fall. I returned the second 62mm Enhancement Kit for a refund about a week ago and received an e-mail that B&H had received it and is processing the refund. At this time I am still waiting for this on my PayPal Account.
