Product Description

Pattern Name: 86mm

Description:
* Neutral Density (ND) filters can reduce the intensity of light without appreciably changing its color. Classic ND filters have different f-stop reduction numbers and transmittance thus generated can be applied for different shooting conditions, such as portraiture, water falls, fountain etc.
* Our ND Fader is a compact all-in-one variable neutral density fader filter that adjusts the amount of light reduction with just the twist of your wrist. The index marks on the filter let you know exactly the amount of reduction at a glance. Giving you clear and precise shots at whichever density you are using. It is able to adjust neutral density freely from ND2 to ND400. You only need to carry one single filter with the same capability with ND2, ND4, ND8 ND16 ND32... and ND400. It offers you the freedom the create different neutral density freely.

Specifications:
* Type: Fader ND
* Color: Black
* Rotating: Yes
* Neutral Density Grade: 2 - 400
* Material: High Quality Optical Glass
* Filter Thread Size (attach to lens): 86mm

* Image quality may drop when focal length above 200mm

Package contents:
* 1x 86mm Adjustable Variable ND Filter

I didn't notice any significant degradation or softening of the images using it.

Pattern Name: 52mm Verified Purchase
Length: 2:53 Mins
Reviews usable range, sharpness, and color shifts.

Update:

I recently got three new lenses (50mm, 85mm, and 135mm) which allowed me to test sharpness for 100mm, 170mm, and 270mm full frame equivalents. At 100mm, the filter is a little less contrasty, but still good. 170mm equivalent starts to get a little hazy, and by 270mm, the picture is fairly soft.

So it's best to stick to shorter (less than 100mm FFE) focal lengths, but this is still a good deal.

Also, with the sun in or just outside the frame, contrast will drop. It's noticeable, but I don't know how well a more expensive filter would do.

Pattern Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
Summary: It does what it is advertised to do; that is, provide a variable neutral density filter to decrease light and allow extending exposure times, usually in bright settings. It does that for about 5% of the price of another "name brand" VND.

A typical use for this type of device is to allow flowing water or ocean tides to be rendered during daylight photography with a very soft, "cotton candy" appearance. In the past to achieve this I have stacked 2 or more ND2 or ND3 filters on top of my circular polarizer to get this result but a variable filter like this one allows it to be done much more easily with the ability to fine tune the light decrease with a mere twist of the front element of the filter.

Detail:
The on-line description says a range of ND2 to ND400 which is between 7 and 8 stops of light. ND512 would be 8 stops; ND2 (what you get by just screwing it on), then ND4 (plus 1 stop), ND8 (plus 2 stops), 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512.) So that would indicate that I should be able to get a 7 stop lengthening of exposure but at 8 stops it might not be useable. I have to say that the advertising claim is accurate because while I got about 8 stops of additional light decrease, only about 7.5 of those stops are useable because at max light reduction I got severe shading in an "X" shape, from corner to corner across the image. HOWEVER, the filter provided PLENTY of range.

Pros:
> Definitely allows for long exposures.

> Build quality seems great for the price that is paid. Indeed, it comes in a fitted, clamshell case just like Hoya filters.

> Rotation is smooth with no tendency to shift.

> Minimum to maximum light transmission rotation is 120 degrees.

Initial Review (after 3 weeks of heavy use)

Overall, I have been pleased with this product. It has a very reasonable price, works well overall, and provides a great way to capture time exposures, even in full sunlight. Below are greater details:

Pros:
Great Price, Good ND range, Good design to accommodate wider angles, little loss of image quality
I bought this product to experiment with ND filters. For the price, its a great way to get started. I have now been using it for about a month and overall have been very pleased. I have used it to shoot traffic, waterfalls, and a variety of other moving subjects in full sunlight and even direct sunlight. The range on this filter is great (as an example shooting full daylight 50ISO 22A, I can bring the shutter speed down anywhere from 1/100 to about 6 seconds - any more than that and you get dark and light areas in the corners of the image). Overall, there are no real added aberrations or loss of quality, depth or saturation, except when shooting directly into the sun or other very bright light sources.

Cons:
Glass shifts, relative dark and light areas at very highest ND, major lens flare shooting into direct sunlight
One annoyance is that the bottom glass can sometimes shift - making the guides on the filter not line up with the actual ND amount. Also, at very high ND (I would estimate 95% light blocked and above) you get relative dark and light areas in the corners. If you like lens flare when shooting into the sun, then you might like this, but it does add a whole lot of flare in that specific setting.

The Verdict - I would buy it again - it does a great job, with only minor issues, for a great price.

Pattern Name: 77mm Verified Purchase
I purchased this Vari-ND filter for a trip to the Caribbean. It was priced right and there were no long waiting periods like you have for the Lee Big Stopper. The distributor claims ND2 to ND400 usable range, but my results were significantly less. To be honest, this is sold as the "Neewer" brand, but there is nothing on the packaging that indicates that it is. In fact, the case that my filter came in says "dHD Digital High Definition, Low Profile Filter Ring, High Index Optical Glass, Maximum Light Transmission." On the back of the case, it says it is a circular polarizer. First, it is a low profile ring, but I'm not sure maximum light transmission is what I'm looking for in a filter that is supposed to block light. It's a small oversight, but I'm used to Neewer products coming with their branding on the product. Second, the glass is pretty good. I didn't notice any significant degradation or softening of the images using it. Sure, the pixel peepers will see some, but it isn't significant.

The rings are thin, but not crazy-stupid thin. The scale markings are fairly clear, but there is no index mark on the outer ring, so the scale is fairly useless. Since the markings are not very helpful or accurate, I'm guessing that this filter will provide about 6 stops of light reduction at best. At f32 and ISO 100 on my Nikon D7000, the slowest shutter I could get in direct light was about 4 seconds. The longest shutter I could achieve at any daylight hour was about 15 seconds. The filter could be turned to make it black, but you will get the black X of death in your photo due to polarizer interferance. This is a design flaw that happens with almost all variable ND filters regardless of price or brand name. I've seen the same thing happen on $500 filters from major brands.
