I use the 0.9 (three stop) filter a good deal and it is particularly effective when used in conjunction with multi-bracketed exposures, HDR processing software and when applied to strong sunlight. I find that contrast in general and in clouds especially is made to look very striking, and the derived colours are very attractive. You might find that RAW image previews are initially disappointing, but once your basic adjustments are done the results are very impressive. Tiffen produces a more expensive and durable range of filters, but this one is solid glass and easy to keep clean. A very good purchase and I would have no hesitation in buying Tiffen again in the future.

A word of warning. Your camera previews will look very dark, through both the viewfinder and LCD screen, and it is easy to overlook unwanted details, especially around the edges of the frame. Be extra careful with composition and take your time. And because your exposures are going to be slowed down, use a tripod when necessary.

Bought this with Tiffen's 0.3 and 0.6 filters. Why?

Tiffen are great quality for the price. I'm happy to use the filters by stacking them, although I may go with a variable ND filter in the future. This time, I decided there was more potential for something to go wrong in the design of a variable ND filter, so I wet for three separate pieces of glass that can be stacked. It is more bulky, but this kind of kit is small anyway, and it was cheaper than the variable ND.

My glass arrived quickly and is very high quality. Completely satisfied with the purchase.

Best uses for this equipment:

1) Video work. If shooting video on your dSLR, you want control over the shutter speed. In most cases you'll want to be shooting at 1/50th or 1/60th of a second. Shutter speed affects the quality of the video, how action is rendered, in a way that is distinct to still photography. But shooting at these shutter speeds may restrict the aperture and/or ISO you can then select for a correct exposure. So, you pop one (or more) of these on your camera to get you to the aperture/ISO you want.

2) Landscapes where you want to blur clouds/water/other moving things.

3) If you want to shoot with studio strobes and/or speedlights to control the direction and nature of the light in your image, but you also want shallow DoF in the image. These filters are brilliant for this, and you can get really creative with it - this is how I use my filters most of the time, as I specialise in portraiture and video work.

Someone posted that they're not very creative filters but, once you understand how they work, you'll find the precision they grant you enable you to get very creative indeed!

Arrived on time, does what it says on the box... Well packaged, although was rattling around in it's branded box, so that;s probably down to Tiffen, but it was still undamaged - Definatly worth it.

Decent enough, does what it says on the tin. Fewer stops than I thought it would be so not what I was really looking for but that was mostly my own fault!

Excellent quality filter. Can't find any aberrations with this. Ideal for those longer exposures.

I found getting good results out of this filter too much work. Yes you can get a nice result quite quickly and easily but there's not much scope for grand results, no matter how much you play around with the shot. I've used this filter in a variety of different shots and found I either could do without it or it added minimally to my photo after much tinkering. It's not hugely expensive so perhaps those new to ND filters might want to give it a shot, just don't expect great results.
