Product Description

Product Description

These filters offer both amateur and professional photographers HOYA's famous quality at reasonable prices. They have coatings applied to both surfaces to suppress reflection and increase light transmission.

The Hoya Multi-Coated Neutral Density (ND) Filter is an essential accessory for any photographer's camera bag. ND filters reduce the amount of visible light that enters the lens, allowing the user to utilise wider apertures or slower shutter speeds, particularly in bright conditions. ND filters work especially well for portraits by allowing the photographer to reduce the depth of field, producing pleasant background blur while keeping the subject in sharp focus. These filters are also often used to emphasize movement by permitting slow shutter speeds in bright light, giving life to photos that would otherwise look frozen in time.

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.

Hi,

I have seen reviews in various places and so wanted to purchase this filter. I then read a few reviews on amazon one which said that he got a drop of water on the lense, wiped it careflly with a soft cloth and the coating came off and he was massively disappointed and annoyed, as you'd expect. I wanted the filter to take shots around water i.e the sea, streams and river etc and found this review a concern but decided to risk it as the other reviews i'd read on the filter were so good.

So I receive my filter, take it on holiday go to the beach and take shots on the sea. I put the filter in my pocket whilst I was messing around setting up my shot, took the filter out and realised I had touched the filter glass and its had left a silvery fingerprint mark. I wiped it extremely carefully with a dry soft cloth and its just smudged making it worse. It looks like the coating has indeed come off. I was gutted! I carried on regardless as I was away and what could I do? At the end of the day I noticed spots have formed on my pictures from the spray of the sea on the filter and they had gone all silvery looking too, like the finger mark. I thought well, the filter is knackered now anyway so I got my cloth out and gave it a good rub, the thing looked horrendous, breathed on it a few times, kept rubbing and it turned back to gloss black and it was as good as new! Whenever you touch it or get a mark on it it really does look like the coating has come off, not just like its got a mark on it. The next day I went out again, placed the filter on my bag, my big nosey dog came along and put her wet 'sea nose' right on the glass. This time it really did look bad!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent filter 8.5 stops light reduction 15 Aug 2012
Size Name:52mm|Verified Purchase
This is a very good quality filter for the price.
Unlike cheaper filters, it is multicoated so control of flare is very good. The colour is very neutral and I cannot detect any loss of definition.
The description of ND filters is very confusing, this one reduces the light entering the lens by 400 times which is 8.5 stops (2^8.5), about the minimum you need for slow shutter speeds in daylight to give pictures of running water, waves etc that milky look.
The filter ring is slightly thicker than on the Hoya Professional series which becomes important if you stack a second filter,where it causes vignetting with very wide lens angles. My ND4 (2 stops) plus the ND 400 gives the 10+ stops which is needed for very long exposures in bright sunlight.
My Lumix G1 is able to focus accurately through this filter and the image in the viewfinder is also quite good, a big problem for mirror SLRs.
So a great product, a slimmer design would get 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars A must filter for a long exposure lover! :) 15 July 2012
Size Name:77mm|Verified Purchase
I just love it!!! All I can say is that I am very happy I purchased this filter. I am a long exposure lover and carry this filter with me every time I carry my camera, not during nights, though.

The filter is really dark and to get the right composition it has to be replaced from the lens. As soon as it mounted, nothing can be seen through the viewfinder. So even during a bright sunny day, you can get nicely blurred water or to capture the movements ... :)

I really recommend this product and would buy it again! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good, gives perfect long exposures! 4 Aug 2013
By .
Size Name:77mm
So at first I bought a cheap and filter set on eBay cost me the best part of a tenner they arrived I screwed all three of them on and took a photo, and it barely reduced it by a stop not to mention the horrible purple color cast, so after some long andin depth research iI decided to buy this filter, I got it and went and tested it out on a small stream near my house in bright daylight and I can easily get a 30 sec exposure at f22 and Iso100 in noon daylight which gives the milky water effect I was looking for, this filter has totally changed my landscape photos they are so much better now well worth it. No colour casts,can get 30 sec exposure In daylight, works brilliantly only cons are- I bumped it once and it cross threaded really easily but I fixed it soon after and all is now good, the other con is being a screw on filter it can be very fiddily when trying to line up an end grad at the same time.

If you are interested in getting that milky water look or improving your landscapes then this is the product for you very good!!!

--UPDATE--
so i was using this filter today and it slipped out of my hands from about 4 feet and landed onto concrete the glass separated from the metal thread filter piece. this happened very easily which is a bit of a bugger considering it is the first time i have remotely dropped it. so it is a good product for what it does but it is really quite fragile, so be warned!!!

Filter is threaded on the front so more filters can be added ie; graduated,Cokin etc enabling long exposures in bright sunshine and gorgeous cloud definition, makes stormy seas look like mist. A must have.
