Product Description

Photographing solar eclipses and ultra-bright light sources can be extremely dangerous. This filter reduces light values by 9 stops to less than 1/500th of its original intensity and allows safe photography. It can also be used to achieve super slow shutter speeds in daylight to render moving subjects invisible, and will enable you to use slow shutter speeds, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, vehicles, etc. It will also decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background. And this filter allows you to decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) so it can be used outdoors in bright situations. Neutral Density filters have no effect on color balance, appear grey and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. Multi-coating minimizes reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare as well as ghosting.

No noticed distortions to image.

Doesn't cost an arm and a leg like the 10 stop filters, and I'm more than willing to trade a stop of light for saving a lot of money.

I was able to take long exposure shots in direct mid afternoon sunlight with no problem.

The Hoya ND-400x has become my filter of choice for photographing waterfalls and rivers. There is absolutely no distortion of colors or sharpness and my Canon Rebel XT focuses extremely well through the filter. I highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in photographing waterfalls or any other type of long exposure photography. You won't be disappointed.

After reading countless articles and reviews on ND filters, I found the HOYA ND-400 to be at the top. After using the filter for a few weeks now, I'm more than impressed. I would recommend this lens to anyone trying to capture longer exposures in the sun.

No noticed distortions to image. You must have the filter off to focus and see anything period. You can get some incredible shots by stopping down and using this filter to take 15-20 exposures in broad daylight.

So I bought this filter for the solar eclipse that happened a few weeks ago and I gotta say that it worked just as it's supposed to. Now for those who aren't sure what an ND filter does, it pretty much adds extra fstops to a lens and blocks out light from getting in. This particular filter brings down the light by 9 fstops and really is only useable for photographing the sun as everything else is blacked out. However even at f32 and with the filter the images of the sun were still slightly over exposed but it was perfect enough that you get just a nice glow around the sun. It is definitely a nice lens and is worth the money. However it does look like the price went up since I bought mine.

I purchased this filter as part of a patchwork of adapters to take shots of the May Solar Eclipse. It's not dark enough to risk solar damage to the shoot solar eclipses. The description categorizes the filter for solar events, but I wouldn't suggest you do that.

I had GREAT success with a Kenko Solar Filter. These are pricey, so don't get one unless you plan to use it for direct solar shots such as the recent May 20th Solar Eclipse or Transit of Venus. This lens is Welder's Goggles dark. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007FGQ088/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00

What I will say, is this filter is good if you're just a regular photo folk where you want shots of a sunrise or sunset where your shot will have the sun in the shot, but likely, you'll have other things in the field of view such as friend/family/landscape. It's a good filter to have in your arsenal of filters.

Even if you don't consider yourself a photo buff, but you have an SLR or DSLR camera, filters are important. My #1 filter choice, a must! is a Polarized Filter. You can make the blandest of shots jump out. If you've ever wondered how photographers get the rocks under water, they use a polarized filter. Hoya, Tiffan & others all make good ones. Don't rack your brain to find the ideal one. These filters act just like polarized sun glasses, removing glass from the shot and bringing items hidden in shadows to life. Other filters, to consider: red, yellow, green & blue. That's all you need and they are better than attempting to use the filter features in many new digital SLRs

Excellent filter, it was exactly as described, and after a few test shots appears to be of excellent quality. The delivery was on time, as promised. I can't expect any better than that.

The filter is as advertised, it arrived in perfect condition, and they threw in a microfiber cloth which I appreciate.
