Reduces the amount of light passing through the camera lens without altering the color of the scene. This filter is in particular utile in bright light conditions. Allows proper exposure at a wider lens opening when reducing depth of field to spotlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or the background out of focus. A slower shutter speed may be applied to manufacture blurred motion effects.
These filters reduce the amount of light passing through the camera lens without altering the color of the scene. They are exceptionally utile in bright light conditions to help prevent overexposure. Neutral Density filters also concede proper exposure at a wider lens opening for scaled down depth-of-field to spotlight a key subject by making the foreground and/or background out of focus.

Learn about the ND filters before you buy one.
If you think this is the strongest ND filter you can get, then it is wrong. DO NOT BUY THIS. This is only 3-stop and there are 9 or 10 stop filters available. Learn about ND filters before settling on one.
With this ND filter, you cannot take pictures of water falls in bright day light (even with smallest aperture (F22)). But if you want to take the same later in the day (around sunset), this will help you a lot. I took lots of pictures using this filter during my trip to Yosemite. I could take really nice waterfall motion (with 1 sec exposure during sunset) but all the pictures I took during day time were washed out…they all became too bright.
If you have a polarizing filter, you may stack on top of it (be careful with vignetting) to get more darkness.
The filter itself is very well built and I was able to easily screw/unscrew from the lens. I would put some more money to get more f-stop. I will post some sample pics I took soon.

Doesn’t play well with Canon 24-105/4L IS
By Jason Mongue
I’ve put this filter on many Canon lenses and it’s worked just fine with no perceivable loss in image quality EXCEPT on one lens.
For about a week, I used this off and on a 24-105/4L IS. Near the end of the week I noticed a faint scratch/abrasion in the dead center of the filter as well as on the front element of the lens. Thus, I stopped using it (on the trip). When I returned to civilization and the land of the internet, I did some searching and found quite a few other folks (on dpreviewDOTcom) complaining about the same issue with the Tiffen filter and their 24-105/4L lens.
All in all, I’d recommend this filter, but try it on all the lenses you intend to use to make sure there’s some clearance between the filter and the front element.

72mm ND 0.9 filter
By J. R. Osborn
I needed a darker neutral density filter than I already had. I got this one and used it on a recent vacation to shoot some sunrises and sunsets. I was extremely pleased with the results. Also, I thought the price on Amazon was excellent. There are other brands out there that cost more, but I have always liked Tiffen products, and knew that I would have no issues with it.
