Technical Details


Product Description


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 needed to be able to use slow shutter speeds or large lens openings during the day. I had some success using a polarizing filter but still needed more flexibility.

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.

I have been a Hoya filter user since way back in my film days. I have never had any construction or usability issues with any of their filters and they all have performed as advertised. The colors are neutral with no apparent color cast which is really good. BUT, in this case, the NDx8 is supposed to be a 3 stop ND filter but I am getting only 2 1/2 stops with this filter. I had read that with some makers and even with Hoya, these filters are sometimes not true 3 stop filters but it seemed to be random. I am still keeping the filter as it still does what I need it to do, just a 1/2 stop short for time lapse photography. I may invest in the 10 stop filter in the future.
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.

After few hours of research for affordable and quality filter, I decided to try this. Of course I wanted to buy B+W but I just didn't want to spend $100+ for a filter as I'm just an amateur photographer. ND8 is perfect for bright sunny day, when you cannot adjust your settings to achieve a quality photo due to the strong light. I tested it under extremely bright daylight, taking a photo of sunflower against extremely bright blue sky. I was able to capture quality photo as darkening of lens by ND filter allows me to set the camera, and not run out of shutter speed to the max (or smallest aperture)! I did not see any flaws in the resulted photo. Cannot wait to use it for long exposure sometime soon! I'll update the review after trying out for long exposures.

Pros:
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!

Cons:
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.

I've been using this filter to take long exposure sunset pictures and it's done it's job perfectly every time. There is no noticeable quality degradation, and the filter contains threads on both sides so I can stack ND, or continue using a circular polarizer and UV filter at the same time.

I no longer recommend this ND filter. After 2+ years of sporadic use, the filter is starting to show many irregularly sized purple spots all over it. I don't know what would cause these spots other than disintegration of the coatings on the glass. The filter was always kept in its case when not in use, and was always meticulously taken care of. The image quality is still acceptable (I haven't yet done systematic image degradation tests). I still use the filter, but will have to invest in another one. I used this 77mm diameter filter over my Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 lens on Canon 7D & t3i bodies. I've also used it over several Canon lenses. I don't know if my filter came from a bad batch, or whether all of them deteriorate in a similar way, but I can no longer recommend this ND filter.

Nice filter, good image quality, good multi-coating for flare resistance. Not as expensive as others, yet does the job without killing image quality in the process. If you need just one, this is good. I would not stack it with other filters though, I stacked three filters and the result was horrible.

Filter works great! Not much to say other than yes it's an ND filter. My only regret is not getting a higher stop. I should have got a ND 12 or 16. During peak daylight hours at f22 ISO 100 I'm still around a second exposure.
