In conditions of extreme light intensity, such as sunshine on snowy mountains or on the beach, or when using a camcorder, ND (Neutral Density) filters are recommended as essential. Neutral Density filters are often ignored by photographers, but they have several uses and offer the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film, they have no affect on color balance.

I tried a bargain brand of Neutral Density filter but it had a very strong red cast to it. Also, it was not multi-coated, which could lead to flare issues under some conditions. I wasn't willing to live with a "neutral" filter with a red cast so sent it back.
This filter is about three times more expensive but here's what you get for the extra money:
- filter is truly neutral - no added color cast to your images
- multi-coated (both sides) for better color, contrast, and flare control
- better construction - threads onto lens much easier
This filter fits two lenses that I own so I am able to save some money that way.
My first images proved that this was the right choice for me. The pictures (waterfalls) came out just the way I wanted them, and the filters were easy to use.
There are more expensive filters out there, and some may wish to spend the extra money (twice as much), but I found these to be perfectly good for my purposes and far exceeded what was possible at one third the cost.
The shipping was fast and the filter was well packaged so kudos to the supplier (I forgot who it was) that sent out this filter. 5 stars there.
So, I am giving it only 4 stars instead of 5 due to the 1/2 stop variance.
Attaches to my Canon 17-40mm f/4 L lens easily.
Other reviewers are right in that it subtracts about 2 - 3 stops of light.
I've taken a few shots of waterfalls with this, and it makes the water blur perfectly!
With only a few stops of light taken away I still need to shot some daytime scenes at f/22 to get 2 - 3 second exposures without blowing out.

Nice filter, minimal distortions as i can tell so far, light transmission is very even and long exposures still stay crisp. will update with photos as i use it.Published 15 months ago by Phillip Ricardo
Hoya lens filters are all-around awesome. Their build quality is solid, the anti-reflection layer performs well, and the price is significantly better than B+W and other brands.Published 20 months ago by Henry Mo
