TIFFEN AND LFC SUPPORT FILTER FORUM
Bicester, 5 May 2010 – Tiffen International and the London Filter Company (LFC) have announced their support for the Filter Forum (www.filterforum.co.uk). This includes contributing their technical expertise as well as sponsoring the site.
Terry Carey, MD Tiffen International, says of the Filter Forum. “Here is a great opportunity for all interested parties to get unbiased advice from world experts and the thousands of other filter users around the world. As never before, people today can shoot HD at low cost. A knowledge of filters will help make their results predictable and with the look they want.”
The Filter Forum, launched in April, provides space for open discussion and sharing of knowledge about filters. Carey Duffy, Technical Director LFC, says, “Motion pictures are always shot using filters as is professional video footage and, perhaps to a lesser extent, stills photography. Now, thanks to the Canon 5D and others, a whole new section of photographers are now getting grips with HD. So now here is an area, DSLR-HD, that’s very new and needs to know how to get the most out of this new medium. In all cases sharing knowledge at this forum will help everyone to understand how filters can help them. This is unique. It’s going to help everyone.”
