The 4 x 5.65" Pro Indie HV ND Filter Kit from Tiffen will be of great use to anyone who enjoys shooting HD video with their DSLR. The filters are produced with high-quality water white glass for increased color fidelity and sharpness. Water white glass is characterized by low-iron, ultra-clear glass that transmits 98% to 99% of light, and is anti-glare and anti-reflective coated. Tiffen has manufactured this kit to work with the DSLRs that can shoot HD video and have a small 8-bit color space. The ultimate purpose is to ensure that the final color does not have a greenish/brown tint. Another advantage of the kit is that it saves money on having to buy individual filters—about a 20% savings. And it comes with a padded storage pouch that contains a handy belt loop, so your filters will always be at hand.
Tiffen neutral density (ND) filters have several uses. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. For those who wish to create some unique and special effects, these filters will be indispensable. Create a feeling of movement by shooting a rippling stream and watching the water 'blur". Or create an impression of busy city life by shooting traffic and seeing how the cars blend into one another with a sense of swirling action. Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation. Tiffen filters are made in the USA and backed by a 10-year warranty.
- Enable slow shutter speeds, especially with high-speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
- Decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
- Decrease the effective ISO of high-speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
- 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
