Tiffen 82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter

Tiffen 82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter
Key Features
  • Provides 2 to 8 Stops of Light Control
  • Rotating Ring to Choose Degree of ND
  • Eliminates Buying Many ND Filters
  • Use to Create Blurs/Special Effects
The 82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter from Tiffen offers a unique way of maintaining total control over your depth of field as well as presenting an efficient way to create some special effects. The filter is designed with a built-in rotating ring that controls neutral density ranging from 2 - 8 stops (0.6- 2.4). The heavier the density, the slower your shutter speed will be. This longer exposure allows the shutter to remain open long enough to record the same amount of light but will also create movement within the shot. Another major benefit of this filter is the elimination of having to buy and carry around individual neutral density filters. With this one filter, you can rotate to the degree of ND you want - a real time and money saver.

Hi,Will this ND filter fit on my Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ATX lens? Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
No it will not. The Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 ATX lenses have a 77mm sized filter thread. See the link below for the proper option in the 77mm size:

Does it have IR protection ?

Does it have IR protection ?
Asked by: DENYS
It is not rated for IR, This is a Neutral Density filter, but I yet have to come up an IR issue using it with my Sony A7RII. If you have IR issues with your sensor often like color shifts I suggest you correct those with a proper IR filter first. A Variable Neutral Density filter works by juxtaposing 2 polarizing filters so there is a highly modified light spectrum left, I wonder if you should be worring about IR at the end. Enjoy. This filter is a game changer specially on travel and run and gun.

This filter allows the photographer greater control over the light entering their lens, 2-8 stops. It is meant for two things: Greater control over aperture/depth of field. By limiting the amount of light coming into the lens, you can shoot at lower apertures and achieve greater depth of field during bright light situations where your image would otherwise overexpose. Long exposures. By limiting the amount of light coming into the lens, you can shoot long exposures during the day to create "movement" in your images. An example would be photographing a waterfall and having all the surroundings appear still, while the water was motion blurred.

I want to use this filter on Schneider ...

I want to use this filter on Schneider Super-Angulon XL 5.6/58mm lenses. (approximately 17~17.5mm equivalent to 35mm). And I want to use it mainly in the 2~6 stops range. In this case, will the "X" pattern appear?
Asked by: seunghee
I have used this with no problems. On a Sigma 10-20mm and bracketing shots in Manual and Aperture priority.. Never had any Side affects.

which OP/TECH Hood Hat would fit on the 82mm ...

which OP/TECH Hood Hat would fit on the 82mm filter? My 82mm lens is 3.25 inch diameter but the filter has a larger diameter, I think.
Asked by: Edward
I had this same issue too. I can't remember which Kaiser push on cap I ended up getting (100mm according to my order history) even though it was slightly too big for the Tiffen 82mm VND filter. I like the material the cap was made out of so I lined the inside edge of the cap with very thin pieces of good gaff tape and it stays on much better. It's not perfect but I can live with it. Hope this helps.
