The Deluxe Video Intro Filter Kit from Tiffen makes it easy and convenient for students or professionals working in the video industry. The kit comes with three basic, but necessary filters for video.
The UV protector is designed to keep moisture and dirt out of the front element of your lens. This filter also removes UV haze when you are shooting at higher altitudes and it is recommended to leave this filter on at all times.
The Neutral Density .6 filter is an important filter to have because it reduces the amount of light coming into the lens by two stops. The ND filter also allows the video camera to shoot at wider apertures and not overexposing the scene; in addition to, getting a shallower depth of field in the shot.
Unlike digital cameras film cannot white balance under fluorescent lights, but the FL-D Filter does provide that solution. By not correcting the film for that type of lighting it will capture the green cast fluorescent lighting gives off. Using the filter will render true-to-life colors and pleasing skin tones on people.
Tiffen filters are created by using the ColorCore Process, which permanently laminates the filter material between two pieces of optical glass. The optical glass is grounded and polished flat; therefore, the filter material between the glass is never affected. The finished product is finally mounted into an aluminum ring.
I'm not an expert on filters. As a matter of fact, i'm not an expert in cameras at all. I had bought the sony nex3 a few months back and need a filter to protect the lens. I was searching for days and read tons of review. I've heard about those cheap plastic looking replicas from china that's priced not that much lower than something like Tiffen. So i went ahead and got the Tiffen set, great price, i got all three for like $30 and i can really tell the difference with the photos i take. Great Filters!
I purchased this basic filter kit for my Panasonio FZ-28 camera. They arerrived quickly in a nice case - could not have been easier. These filters seem very nice and have added to the color qulaity of the pictures I have taken.
