Tiffen 72ND12 overview

  • 1Description

The Tiffen 72mm Neutral Density 1.2 Filter is a solid ND filter with a 16x filter factor that provides a 4 stop exposure reduction. Its 1.2 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

This filter is made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 1/10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.

1.2 neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 4 stop exposure reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and is ideal for use with other filters.
72mm front filter threads allow for use with other filters.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

    Tiffen 72ND12 reviews

    72mm Neutral Density 1.2 Filter is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silky Waterfalls Await! I have tried other brands but - best bang for the buck - Tiffen. I use this for adding exposure time when photographing waterfalls. It is perfect for this! With the best time to be on cloudy days, this allows more time (15 seconds) to get the silky effect I enjoy. On bright days, I can still get the effect but only pull a couple of seconds. I wanted to give this a 4.5 because the exposure/filter does mess with white balance but (shooting in RAW) this can be fixed in post-processing - a 4 would be too low. It does not cut the sharpness of the image - still - like a razor. Tiffen does have the IRND filters at larger densities (ie 2.1) that do not give the color cast (in my experience).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job...Clean! I ordered a Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine lens B&H had in their used dept. With a lens that fast I knew I needed some neutral density (and a lot of it) if I was going to use that lens in outdoor daylight. Otherwise I was facing very small apertures with extra unwanted depth of field and probably loss of sharpness from the diffraction one can get with small lens aperture. ND 1.2 can get me down to F8 - F5.6 range easily, brand choice for me was simple: Tiffen. I've been using Tiffen filters for decades, they are priced very affordable but my preference for this brand was cinched when I read on Shane Hurlbut's blog that he prefers Tiffen filters for their quality. This 72mm 1.2ND does on the Rokinon what I am used to with all of my smaller diamter lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter This is a must have! I just finished a short shoot all day outside and this did not come off of my lens. It gave me great exposures and increase the range that my camera could handle. It made life a lot easier! The only suggestion is get a filter pouch for easy access.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works The image seems just as sharp as without, indispensable for video outside on a bright summer day. Feels solid, will hang onto it for awhile.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter My primary use for this filter was to allow me to drop down to f/1.2ish for headshots where I'm using a softbox, and it does the trick. If you're using it for the same reason I am, I recommend possibly throwing a speedlite on so the infrared can help you get a focus, because it's so dark that you'll have trouble using autofocus if you're indoors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Filter! This filter is exactly what I needed to let me open up my aperture so I could get a shallow depth of field in the harsh sun of New Mexico. There is little to none of color shift. It also felt very well made and the threads work perfectly.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works but produces a green tint color cast! This filter works, however it adds a strong greenish color cast (not just in Auto white balance). It is very unnatural and unpleasant looking. I takes quite a bit of time to correct in post. Will not recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great filter! This filter has improved the look of my daytime water shots by sloooowing down the shutter speed making the water look beautiful! The shots also stay as sharp as ever!
