Neutral Density filters evenly reduce the amount of light passing thru the lens without effecting color.
Ideal for reducing bright light in large aperature situations when a narrow depth is field is needed.
Allows for slower shutter speeds when blurring or showing of movement is desired.
Allows balancing of exposure to highlight a key subject.
Lets you use higher speed films in bright light.
Tiffen Neutral Density filters are available in most sizes and in three strengths:
.3 (2X) Which reduces the light by one f-stop.
.6 (4X) Reduces the light two f-stops.

Used with Nikkor and Tokina lenses. As a Best Use, I would add "Light Control." The filter seats and unseats easily on the lenses. Visually, the optics seem to be fine. Weight seems lighter than some other manufacturers', but I find the Tiffen just as functional.
Used the filter for over 2000 phots, Disney during the day in Florida, and Snow shots in Indiana, over the Christmas ans New Year, a must for every photograher, it adds something software cannot.
