Hauppauge, NY – August 30 2012 – The Tiffen Company, a leading manufacturer and distributor of award-winning accessories for the still imaging, video, motion picture and broadcast markets, will exhibit products from its Domke, Davis & Sanford, Listec, Lowel-Light, Tiffen Digital and Optical filters, and Steadicam brands at the upcoming Photoshop World West Expo held at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada from September 5 – 7 (booth 523). “Tiffen is all about helping people create a great image, whether they are using one of our professional Lowel-Light systems to capture an emotion or the Tiffen Dfx digital filter suite as a plug-in for Photoshop to create one. Tiffen offers just about any image capture or creation accessory a professional could need, and these products can be seen and experienced right on the show floor at Photoshop World West,” comments Steve Tiffen, president and CEO, The Tiffen Company.
In addition to interactive product demonstrations, the stand will buzz with special Tiffen Dfx v3 presentations from Tiffen DfxPERTS Richard Harrington and Eddie Tapp. Now in version 3.0, the multi-award winning Tiffen Dfx has quickly built its reputation as the fastest, easiest, most powerful and most versatile image editing system in the industry. Eddie Tapp, M.Photog., MEI, Cr., API, Photoshop Hall of Fame Inductee, Canon Explorer of Light and Tiffen DfxPERT, had this to say about version 3, “Features in Dfx add brilliant options to my workflow, and one of the most important features to me is the fact that all of the Dfx filters are available in 16-bit with my Smart Object workflow. This allows me to refine any Dfx creative enhancement at anytime. When I do have to make changes of any kind from Smart Objects, the amount of time to update any Tiffen Dfx filter is acceptably smooth and fast, allowing me to try various settings and get the results in short order.”
The popular digital effects software has received several awards, including the Award of Superiority from MicroFilmmaker Magazine, the Photo Industry Reporter’s prestigious Best of the Best award for CES 2012, the DV Black Diamond, Videomaker Best of Show CES and Digital Photography Magazine 2012 Editors’ Choice Award – making it one of the most award-winning photo and video digital filter effects software applications on the market.
Tiffen DfxPERT Richard Harrington, who is also presenting at the Photoshop World West Conference, uses Tiffen Dfx extensively, “I use Dfx in both my photo and video workflows because I just love how it simulates traditional film stocks. I also find it’s the perfect balance of great presets with extensive controls that are easy to use. I also enjoy the great control over tone and color throughout the Dfx suite, particularly its easy-to-use selection tools for generating masks. I recommend the package highly to my students and use it professionally at RHED Pixel.”
Photoshop World West attendees are encouraged to stop by the booth to participate in daily raffles for a chance to win one of Tiffen’s award-winning photo accessories.
