DESCRIPTION

By blocking 1 to 8.66 f-stops, you can use wider apertures in variable light for shallower depth of field effects, and slower shutter speeds for long exposure effects without overexposing your images.

Cinematographers can use our ND2–400 Variable ND Filter to create more cinematic effects in low and bright light.

For wide-angle and telephoto lenses, we recommend our Variable ND2-32, ND8-128, ND64-1000 or fixed ND filters.

How to Use

Variable ND2-400 (1-8.65 Stop) Filter

1/5

Find your filter size
Inquisitively search lens for diameter symbol. Ø often marks the spot. The diameter you seek may be accompanied by a number – Ø58 or Ø58mm. Look to the side and the front – this precious number is your filter size. Be warned: your lens focal length (e.g. 18-55mm) is not your filter size.

2/5

Place flat and screw clockwise
Excitedly behold lens in one hand and place flat on lens. Gently screw clockwise until just firm. Do not over-tighten that which goes on must one day come off.

Open your aperture

Great variable ND filter

Feels great and attaches perfectly on my 67mm lens.

Tested it to take a long shutter picture of a waterfall and the picture came out like I wanted.

No visible artifacts from the filter, always happy with Urth products

Perfect filter

It works, it doesn't create weird artifacts and it comes in a nice clean package. Perfect, especially in this price range.
