Tiffen 62DIGEK3 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 62mm Digital Essentials Filter Kit contains all the basics that an outdoor digital shooter requires.

UV Protector
These are wise initial investments. They help protect your valuable investment from dust, moisture and scratches, which can lead to costly repairs.

Circular Polarizer
Light rays which are reflected become polarized. Polarizing filters are used to select which light rays enter your camera lens. They can remove unwanted reflections from non-metallic surfaces such as water or glass and also saturate colors providing better contrast. The effect can be seen through the viewfinder and changed by rotating the filter. The filter factor varies according to how the filter is rotated and its orientation to the sun.

Neutral Density
Neutral Density filters from Tiffen have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the either the sensor of a digital camera or the film plane of a traditional film camera. Neutral Density filters are used to create some unusual special effects such as capturing the "blur" of the rippling water of a waterfall or the swirling effect of city traffic. Since they allow the use of slower shutter speeds in bright light, it becomes possible to create these special effects that would normally not be possible to capture without the filter. And since they can also help to control your depth of field, they permit you to shoot at wider apertures. Ultimately, their value is in helping to prevent bright, overly washed out images shot in bright light.

The entire kit comes with a Tiffen padded storage pouch that will help keep your filters clean and free from dust, dirt, fingerprints and other contaminants,.

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.

UV Protector

Tiffen filters provide additional benefits of correction for Ultraviolet(UV) light which can register on film and videotape as a bluish cast and can obscure distant details
If desired they can be left on the lens at all times for protection

Circular Polarizer

This filter eliminates ultraviolet rays to remove haze from outdoor shots as well as polarizing the light to remove reflections, and increase color saturation, without affecting the overall color balance
Makes a blue sky bluer
Enhances clouds

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 situation
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
Tiffen Quality
Tiffen's ColorCore glass is sealed between two optical glass sheets. In this way, Tiffen can better control the various densities of their filters and thereby create more exact degrees of filtration. This process makes for greater accuracy of color as opposed to glass that is simply dyed and become subject to deviation during the dye process
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 62DIGEK3 reviews

    62mm Digital Essentials Filter Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Filters that every photographer needs This was the filter combo that I was looking for, as every photographer needs a good UV protector (lens protector), polarizer, and for extra measure, neutral density. I find the typical filter kits may contain one or possibly two of these so I was happy to find this kit from a quality and value conscious manufacturer like Tiffen. I only wish that it included a compact filter pouch that I can place into my camera bag. I prefer a holster style camera bag which doesn't leave much room for accessories so a small square filter pounch would be ideal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price! Got these to protect my new Tamron 70-300mm f/4-5.6 DI VC f/CANON EOS lens. I liked that they came with a protective case to hold all the filters. Bonus was that there was a 4th empty slot to store an additional filter. The only negatives are: 1. the first time I attached the Circular Polarizer Filter I thought it was on all the way but then it just fell off the lens. I am little worried about the possibility of cross-threading but I will be more careful attaching them in the future. 2. The case seems like it may actually scratch the filters if items are pressed against the outside. I was expecting a the case to contain a frame to protect against crushing. All in all the filters appear to be good quality and I can live with the two cons I have so far.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised Attached the uv filter on the circular polarizer, shot around 400 photos. Great for shooting through glass and removing the reflection. Also good for making sure there is a reflection on water when you want one. Did not get a chance to use the ND filter but expect it to work as well as the polarizer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from QUALITY for PRICE! I was immediately impressed with the snug fit and solid feel of the filters. I am using them on the Tamron 18-270 lens. Unfortunately I was unable to use the polarizer as hoped while river fishing on the Yellowstone River, so cannot comment. The UV filter is on full time unless another is needed for a specific shot or series of shots. Perhaps the excellent advice about cleaning the UV filter on both sides was the key!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent filter kit Bought this digital essentials filter kit for use with recently purchased Moment lenses. Being a mobile phone setup, there was no need to spend the money on more expensive filters. This kit came with 3 filters that would be essential to mobile photography needs and works well. Would recommend for anyone looking for a cheap addition to their Moment lenses kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great buy from B&H Photo I just bought these filters to go with a 18-200 Tamron Lens that I also bought from B&H Photo. Most of my photography is outdoors; wildlife and nature. I just got back from the Grand Canyon and the Sedona area, and the filters have been just wonderful. I used them to take great sunrise and sunset shots of the south rim of the Canyon. They are great filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 for less than 1 filters fit well on the lens comfortably and even fit on top of one another if need be. durable construction and you get all three ESSENTIAL filters for the cost of 1, or even less than 1 at other places. Also includes a nice protective carrying case. Have not experienced any problems or issues at this moment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from they are filters I liike Tifen filters, its worth the money to get name brand filters. I like that it comes with the decent pouch, i like the smooth high drag action of the polarizer, and the other stuff? it makes it dark and adds protection...what more is there?
