Tiffen Showcases New 10-Stop ND Filter at CES
Tiffen is showcasing at CES 2014 its latest ten-stop neutral density filter labelled Tiffen ND 3.0. Offering an incredible 10-stop exposure absorption, this high-density block allows photographers to add an additional layer of creativity to their work through the use of much slower shutter speeds or a wider aperture than would normally be required without the use of a filter. In this way, the photographer can employ a long exposure time to blur any movement within the scene or use a smaller depth of field for more selective focus through the choice of a wider lens aperture. Tiffen’s ND 3.0 is available in sizes 52mm to 82mm.

About the Tiffen ND 3.0
The Tiffen ND 3.0 is a Neutral Density filter that offers an incredible 10-stop exposure absorption. This high-density block allows photographers add an additional layer of creativity to their work through the use of much slower shutter speeds or a wider aperture than would normally be required without the use of a filter. In this way, the photographer can employ a long exposure time to blur any movement within the scene or use a smaller depth of field for more selective focus through the choice of a wider lens aperture.
Although the amount of light passing through the lens is significantly reduced, Tiffen’s tried-and-tested technology means that no color change occurs. This makes it easier for the photographer to balance exposure in order to eliminate washed-out images where bright light conditions prevail.
Tiffen’s ND 3.0 is available in sizes 52mm to 82mm.
About the Tiffen Variable ND Filter
Incorporating seven ND filters into one, the popular and universally accepted Tiffen Variable ND Filter is all about versatility and convenience. Designed for use by photographers and videographers, this all-in-one ND filter means more space in the camera bag and less time changing filters when shooting.
With the Tiffen Variable ND, photographers can use slow shutter speeds to record movement/image blur, have full control over depth of field, shoot high-speed film (above ISO 400) in bright outdoor situations by reducing the effective ISO, and effectively use cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film bright scenes that could otherwise cause overexposure.
The Tiffen Variable ND Filter comes in 52MM, 58MM, 62MM, 67MM, 72MM, 77MM and 82MM sizes and is available today through Tiffen’s domestic and international dealer network.
