Tiffen International to launch new generation NAT Neutral Density optical filters at BSC Expo 2017


 Tiffen International will launch a new product line at BSC Expo 2017, Tiffen NATural Neutral Density Filters. Memorializing the groundbreaking achievements made by Tiffen’s founder, Nat Tiffen. The Tiffen NATural Neutral Density Filter line provides game changing improvements on neutral density filtration, with perfect neutrality across the visual and IR spectrum resulting in natural skintones and outstanding colour fidelity. Manufactured in the USA utilizing the patented Tiffen Color Core™ process these glass filters represent a new generation of ND and IRND filtration.

US Cinematographer John Simmons, ASC said: “I can’t imagine any improvement on the ‘NAT’ ND filters we tested and demonstrated. My first impression was the neutrality of these filters were well proven during the test and ready to take to me very next production. So talk about splitting hairs to any further improvements would have to be judged by some advanced technical device that looks way beyond human perception, let alone my 30 plus years of experience.”

Other examples of Tiffen’s wide filter range will also be on show.

Steadicam® still dominates as the stabilised camera platform for the movie industry and the the ultimate top of the range Steadicam, the M-1, will be there on demo, along with the renowned Fawcett Exovest. Tiffen’s Lowel lighting will also be on display.

Tiffen will also be presenting a products seminar on the first day, Friday 3rd February, from 1.25pm to 1.55pm.

Members of the Tiffen team will be there on stand 602 to advise and answer your questions.
