Tiffen Launch Variable ND Filter

Posted on May 20, 2011 by Alex Fice

Tiffen 77mm VND variable neutral density filter (2 to 8 stops)Tiffen International has introduced a variable neutral density (VND) optical filter. Designed to replace a range of traditional fixed ND filters this is the first model of a series VNDs planned by the company.

The 77mm VND, now available, is aimed at the photography and DSLR video market and provides 2 to 8 stops of light control within a 9mm ring. The VND includes a wide outer optic to help reduce any vignetting effects when using wide-angle shots.

In effect the new VND Filter offers several neutral density filters in one package. Its main use in the photographic market is for controlling the depth of field and exposure. It will also be popular in the video DSLR market because of its small size, light weight and speed of use, when set up time is a premium.

Carey Duffy of Tiffen commented, “The VND will be very popular tool for the busy photographers and HDSLR shooters who may be pressured with little time to set up. It’s ideal for quick ‘run and gun’ videos and suits their quick set up and need for a wide range of performance in compact and light equipment. I would always advise individual neutral density filters, but this is a fantastic option for a wide variety of shooting applications.”
