Tiffen Water White IR/ND Filters

The Tiffen 77mm Water White IRND Filter by Tiffen is designed to correct color shift from IR contamination, which is a critical problem in digital videography, whether you are using neutral density filters with HDSLR or HD video cameras. The CCD or CMOS sensor of a digital camera is inherently susceptible to infrared contamination, even when the manufacturer attempts to reduce this problem by adding an infrared absorbing filter on top of the image sensor. Blacks become magenta and greens a muddy brown. Infrared light focuses at a different vocal length than visible light; therefore, your images may seem a bit out of focus as well. The more light you cut, the more IR contamination you will see; therefore, whether you’re reducing light in general or wish to create a shallow depth of field for a cinematic look, the more IR contamination you will encounter.

Tiffen has addressed this problem by offering their exclusive line of their Full Spectrum Water White IR Neutral Density filters in limited screw in sizes for the HDSLR. The Tiffen IR ND filters do not have a sharp cutoff at the infrared wavelengths; therefore the wide color gamut these sensors record is not compromised. The result is vibrant colors and no IR contamination, with crisp clean images that only Water White glass can deliver. These filters also provide greater latitude when editing in post production and are ideal for 8 byte compressed color.

Tiffen Neutral Density Filters

These filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene.  They are especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure.  Neutral Density filters also allow proper exposure at a wider lens opening for reduced depth-of-field to highlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus.
  • Eliminates overly bright, washed-out images
  • Balances exposure
  • Controls depth-of-field
  • Allows slower shutter speeds to produce blurred motion effects



Tiffen Circular Polarizer Filters


Polarizers provide color and contrast enhancement. Reflected light often shows up as whitish glare that washes out color in an image. A Polarizer corrects this problem producing deep, dramatically blue skies. It also removes glare from non-metallic surfaces, such as windows and water. Color saturation in general, especially outdoors, can be improved significantly.
  • Essential general-use outdoor color filter
  • Produces deeper skies and minimizes reflections in black and white and color photography
  • Can be rotated to achieve desired effect
  • Use the Tiffen Polarizer with the enhancing filter for more dramatic effects


Tiffen Black Pro Mist Filters


These Hollywood/FX filters were originally designed for the TV and Motion Picture industry.
  • Offers all the benefits of the Pro-Mist filter in a more subtle form.
  • Highlight flares are controlled.
  • Contrast is lowered, but with less lightening of shadows for a more delicate effect
  • Creates a soft light “pastel” effect
  • Delicate effect with contained highlight flare



Fader ND adjustable ND filter (ND2~400)


Fader ND filter allows you to adjust neutral density freely from ND2 to ND400, providing 2 to 8 stops added density. Perfect for creating a slow shutter speed. With one single filter, you can change to a different density buy simply rotating it. Lens caps and filters can be attached at the front of this fader ND.
