Tiffen 52mm Digital Essentials Filter Kit, UV, Polarizer, ND, 52DIGEK3
Multiple Filter Kits
More economical than individual filter purchases, these multiple filter kits take the guesswork out of choosing a variety of creative filter effects. Pre-packaged assortments, with combinations of Tiffen's most popular filters, provide a range of artistic possibilities for almost every application and budget.
The DIGEK3 filter kit includes:
- (1) UV Protector
- (1) Circular Polarizer
- (1) Neutral Density 0.6
- (1) 4-pocket pouch
This kit is ideal for outdoor use.UV Protector
Protects your camera or camcorder lens against dust, moisture, fingerprints, scratches and damage. This filter can be kept on your camera at all times.
? Most popular protection filters
? Provides basic reduction of UV light
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 Circular Polarizer with the enhancing filter for more dramatic effects
A Circular Polarizer has the same effect as a Polarizer and is used on cameras with beam splitting metering systems commonly found on auto focus SLR's (for most 35mm auto-focus cameras see your camera manual).
Area of sky most effectively polarized with a Circular Polarizer:
Point your index finger at the sun. With your thumb extended at a right angle (90?), rotate it around the axis of the index finger. It will point out the band of deepest blue from horizon to horizon.Neutral Density Filter
Reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without changing the color of the scene. The Neutral Density filter is especially useful in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure. It also allows 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
A 4-pocket padded pouch keeps your filters clean, safe and organized.
