The Tiffen 49mm Black & White Three Filter Kit combines the essential yellow #6, green #13, and red #25 contrast filters together, along with a four-pocket filter pouch, to provide a convenient solution for producing varying degrees of contrast when working with black and white film.
Tiffen filters are made using ColorCore technology, a process that involves laminating the filter substrate between 2 pieces of optical glass, grinding flat to a tolerance of 10,000th of an inch, and then mounting to precision metal rings.
This is a very nice and extremely useful set filters if you want to enhance the black and white photo capabilities of your digital camera. I bought these to use with my Panasonic Lumix FZ7 camera and they're been really great to have. The inclusion of a red filter, green filter and yellow filter in one kit was very handy. Each of them has its important use in black and white photography. If your digital camera give you the possibility of shooting in black and white mode, I highly suggest a set of filters like this. Do some research on the Web to see how they can be used to add zest and definition to photographs and then have a lot of fun experimenting with them.
This is about as basic a set as you can get. I think I first used these about 60 years ago. But in this case, clasic is good. You can, after the fact, get some of the same effects in Photoshop but it's nicer to see the results in real time before you shoot. (Note these really only work for black and white - in color they are pretty ****.)
exactly what i was hoping - tiffen is the best
OVER PRICED. Yes Tiffen filters are solid, but would recommend putting your money into a Lee style 4X4 filter set, where you have more flexibility with various types of filters. Also, threaded filters will wear down your lens threads if used a lot. Recommend getting your basic UV filters as a protection layer. Additionally, yes this will add depth to clouds, and black and white photography, but I'm warning you, your going to be much more happy with a Lee filter rig... and only another $150 to start out.
