Hauppauge, NY—The Tiffen Company, manufacturer of imaging accessories for the consumer/professional imaging and the motion picture and broadcast television industries, will showcase its latest products at the 2018 NAB Show.
Tiffen filters and Steadicam stabilizers as well as Lowel lighting, Domke bags and Davis & Sanford tripods and supports will be on hand. The Tiffen booth, C5625, is located in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In addition, reaching a new milestone this year, the Tiffen Company is celebrating 80 years in the imaging industry.
The company is exhibiting its latest offerings in the Tiffen Filters line: NATural neutral density (ND) filters. Tiffen claims these filters “provide unsurpassed neutrality in the visual and IR spectrum resulting in true color fidelity and ultimate image quality.”
Tiffen NATural ND filters are now available in 77mm and 82mm ring sizes. Other sizes are also available upon request.
Tiffen also caters to the drone community with its exclusive kit of drone filters for DJI. When used in conjunction with the filter technology engineered by Tiffen, “the high-quality performance of the DJI camera system can be taken to the next level, broadening the horizons for content creation,” Tiffen announced.
These filters are currently made for the DJI Phantom 4 Pro Advanced and Obsidian drones. Moreover, filters for the DJI Mavic Air and DJI Inspire 2 will launch this year.
In addition, Tiffen’s Pro 100 system is designed to provide photographers with the ability to benefit from MPTV filters. By attaching the holder onto a camera, film photographers now have the opportunity to take advantage of the positive effects that
Tiffen’s MPTV filters have on the overall quality of an image. The system accepts 4×4 (100mm) filters.
On exhibit from Steadicam, a division of the Tiffen Company, is the recently launched Steadicam Air. The monopod is gas-lift activated by a foot pedal for adjustable height.
Designed in partnership with master cinematographers, the Steadicam Air is made of carbon fiber, which makes it super lightweight and compact.
The monopod is marketed to nature, wildlife, sports, wedding, event and feature photographers as well as cinematographers. The Air is currently available in a 25-pound configuration. In addition, a 15-pound configuration is to follow in the second quarter of 2018.
Furthermore, the Steadicam M-1 will be on display. This tool provides M-1 operators with horizontal stabilization. Weighing two pounds, the M-1 is engineered to seamlessly integrate into an existing M-1 sled.
As a result it is said to provide a greater opportunity for content creation without jeopardizing stability.
From its Lowel lighting division, Tiffen will show the Lowel Go Lite—a compact lighting solution for photo as well as video. At its base, the Go Lite is an bright 5,500K host LED light that can be used on-camera or handheld. Utilizing the included accessories, photographers can have a daylight diffused light, a tungsten diffused light and a daylight soft box.
Also at the booth will be the Lowel Pro Power LED Bi-Color, which offers powerful output in a lightweight, location-based system. It offers a focusable Fresnel light that allows users to flood or spot the light as they see fit.
It will be available for purchase individually and in kits. The release of the Pro Power LED Bi-Color is set for the second quarter of 2018. tiffen.com
