Tiffen award-winning filters have been improving images for over 70 years. Our ColorCore™ technology allows you to control the color and density of every Tiffen filter. Engineering excellence, innovative product design and a 10 year warranty…no wonder Tiffen filters are the choice of moviemakers and professional photographers worldwide.

The Domke Pro-V series is built for video. Lots of storage and protection. The Pro-V series maintains the “function-first” philosophy while adding new touches and styling. Plenty of compartments and pockets provide ample storage. A padded bottom keeps separation of its contents and allows you to build your bag around your video camera.

Based on the original award-winning Dfx Digital Filter software, Tiffen’s Dfxv2 offers plug-in post production software with 2000 filters and special effects; the ability to layer, customize, and selectively filter your footage to emulate your desired effects. Creative control no one else can come close to, and there’s more!

For over 75 years D&S has produced a line of well engineered, quality tripods. The Provista named “Tripod of the Year” by Videomaker is perfect for field, studio, educators, or industrial applications. Its pneumatic cylinder in center post provides small and easy floating action height adjustment for cameras weighing 2 to 12 pounds.

Tiffen exclusive Hot Mirror IRND filters address the problem of IR pollution by using a specially developed Hot Mirror filter that completely blocks IR through the entire spectrum with no appreciable reduction in visible light transmission.

The lightweight Steadicam® Pilot stabilizer system is designed for video cameras from 2 to 10 pounds. Just add battery and camera for a complete system. Optional stand, required for Steadicam balance and operation, fits neatly in the available soft carry case.

Tiffen award-winning Dfx Digital Filter Software with over 2000 filters and special effects, offers creative control that no else can come close to, and there’s more!

Traveling Light
Jan Ozer|Shooting on a budget almost always means less than ideal lighting. To present your subjects in the best light, you’ll need to know what equipment to buy and how to use it, how to work without it when necessary, and how to adapt your lighting strategies to the idiosyncrasies of your shooting site. What constitutes “good lighting,” and how can you get it without breaking the bank? And how can you make sure it follows you wherever you shoot?
Gear and Now: Filter it Out
In this installment of Gear & Now, we’ll look at lens filters from several angles: what kind of filters videographers use, when they use them, and where they find them, when it’s best to use a filter to achieve a particular effect while shooting, and when you’re better off applying that effect in post-production, given the power and versatility of today’s NLEs and effects software.
