Tiffen Indie Overview

The Tiffen 77mm Indie ND Filter Kit is a complete filter outfit (4 filters) for the outdoor shooter who wishes to create special effects without having to put in any post-production time. This combination of neutral density filters gives you the freedom to make some unique and effective images that would ordinarily not be possible.

The kit contains a 1-stop (0.3), 2-stop (0.6), 3-stop (0.9) and 4-stop (1.2) set of ND filters. Using these filters permits you to use slower shutter speeds that can produce blurred effects of nature, sports or any action you choose, i.e. flowing water, birds in flight, cars - just about anything you can think of. It also permits you to shoot on the beach or in bright light when using high speed ISO ratings by enabling slower shutter speeds to be employed.  Irrespective of the medium you are using such as film, digital, video or cine, neutral density filters are quite valuable and should be a part of any shooter's arsenal of tools.  

Often it is necessary or desirable to control the light intensity within a given frame. 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. A neutral density filter will allow you to retain exposure control but will not affect the color of the image.

Neutral Density filters allow you to shoot under conditions that would normally be impossible to shoot under - particularly outside in snow, beach or extreme bright light scenarios. For the landscape photographer, irrespective of the format you use (film, digital, video or cine), this filter is almost a necessity because it permits you to maintain creative control over a tough lighting venue while still maintaining proper exposure.

For those who like moody, soft creative looks to their images, this filter can produce blurred movement when used with waterfalls, fast moving objects (cars, etc) and even nature subjects such as birds in flight or running animals. There are people who even use them on their iPhone to capture interesting images when a traditional camera isn't handy.

Tiffen uses the highest quality Water White Glass that contains an anti-glare and anti-reflective coating. This glass reduces the greenish tint sometimes common in standard glass. Water White Glass permits accurate color transmission. It is clear to the eye and is characterized by an optically pure composition that delivers the highest caliber of image possible.

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.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

Enables slow shutter speeds to be used with high speed ISO ratings; create dramatic images with blurred movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
Permits greater creative control by allowing wider apertures to be used which helps separate subjects from their background
Reduces the amount of light entering the lens - allows use of slower shutter speeds with higher ISO settings on digital cameras, high-speed films, video and cine cameras
It is always difficult to use film, digital or video cameras under bright light conditions such as snow, sand or other bright scenes since these conditions can easily cause overexposure. This filter removes the challenge of recording images under these conditions by permitting the photographer to control the proper exposure while still maintaining creative control

In my filter collection, only one name resides... Tiffen. Solid product!

I use these filters in unison with my colorchecker card for optimized color profiles with each shoot, and I'm happy to say I've no issues with color shifts in either direction. A good deal of my dslr photography and video has been on the beach around midday lately, and these filters have been stellar at expanding my photographic capabilities. Each filter comes wrapped in it's own tissue paper wrapping when it first arrives, and I've elected to keep it in this paper while not in use. Regardless, they've proven quite durable and scratch resistant. (Tested first hand by an inexperienced friend who tried cleaning the .6 with his graphic t-shirt covered in sand. .)

Nice quality!

Love these. My only beef this that the soft case doesn't have individual sleeves - each filter is wrapped in tissue paper. I will probably wrap each in a micro fiber cloth.Great quality glass, though.

Perfect for low budget HD Shoots

We recently received this set at work for our Canon 5D Mk IIIs. I've always been impressed with Tiffen's products and these ND filters live up to the company's great name. Clear image and very little to no color change make these filters the perfect pairing with my 85mm prime lens. There is a little bit of flare, not much, but noticeable if you know what to look for. And they came a bit dirty out of the case, but they were easily cleaned. I'm very happy with this product and I'll be looking to Tiffen first for any additional filter needs.

Good stuff

I ding them one star for not being available in cinema 80mm size. Otherwise, much better than all the variable ND's out there.

Great quality

Did quite a bit of research before buying. This kit seemed to be the best value and I was correct. No vignette experienced. I do wish the bag was a little tighter when closing, but at least it came with one.

A must have filter.

Great product. It works exactly as advertised. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. If your lens filter thread isn't 77mm then i suggest getting a step up ring adapter so you can use this ND.

I have only used the filters once to photograph waterfalls at NY's Letchworth State Park. They made a bad light day workable.

Do these filters have screw on threads so you can stack filters?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, the fronts of the filters are threaded at 77mm size also so you may stack them upon one another.

Why is the pricing for four Tiffen filters twice ...

Why is the pricing for four Tiffen filters twice as much as the kit with three Tiffen filters?

Please refer to specific Tiffen item numbers. Without this information we are unsure which two products you are comparing.

Are there color aberrations or vignetting when stacking these filters? When answering, please specify ND filters used, their order, and 35mm equivalent lens length.
Asked by: Jonathan M.
Yes, you could do this... but that IRND filter is already 7 stops, how many stops are you trying to achieve? The more stops of ND you use the longer your exposure will be, this will make it harder to hold the camera still with a long lens.

What's the difference in quality compared to using the tiffen Variable ND instead?
Asked by: Geoff
No difference in quality. Buying this set allows you to know exactly what stop value you are shooting, however it is more expensive. A VND is less expensive, but there are no set stop values.
