Tiffen Captures Imaginatio​n With Versatile Optical Filters at CES 2012

The new Tiffen Variable ND filter product line delivers seven Neutral Density Filters in one; company rolls out price-optimizing Digital Light Control Kits for photographers and DSLR Shooters 

Las Vegas, NV – January 9, 2012 – The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, is showcasing the new Tiffen® Variable ND Filter line at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at booth 31133. Introduced in August 2011, the high-performance Tiffen Variable ND offers both photographers and videographers convenience in price and performance by combining seven ND filters into one high-performance optical filter. "Good photography is all about controlling light, and the Variable ND allows you to do this with great ease and flexibility. By controlling light, you're able to control your depth of field and aperture — both being integral parts of the creative process," says Jill Conrad, product manager for Tiffen. "What makes our filter stand out from the rest is the manufacturing. The Tiffen Variable ND is made with high-quality optical glass using Tiffen's established ColorCore™ technology. Many variable NDs on the market today use plastic or resin for one or sometimes both of the optical elements. Compared to glass, plastic and resin do not provide optimal image quality." In addition to showcasing new Variable ND Filter size options, Tiffen is offering specially priced Digital Light Control Kits — a collection of high-performance Tiffen Optical Filters that are ideal for DLSR shooters and videographers.

Tiffen Variable ND Filter
Incorporating seven ND filters into one, the Tiffen Variable ND Filter is all about versatility and convenience. Designed for use by photographers and videographers, the all-in-one ND filter means more space in the camera bag and less time changing filters when shooting. Jill adds, "More than a photographic tool for controlling depth of field and exposure, the Tiffen Variable ND is sought after by DSLR shooters as well because it is fast and easy to use. It is small, lightweight, and does not require additional accessories such as a matte box — giving outstanding value with unparalleled performance."

He also comments that, "What I like is that Hasselblad has opened the contest for all kinds of professional photography, even for those which have not been taken with a Hasselblad."
