The 82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter offers a unique way of maintaining total control over your depth of field as well as presenting an efficient way to create some special effects. The filter is designed with a built-in rotating ring that controls neutral density ranging from 2 – 8 stops (0.6- 2.4). The heavier the density, the slower your shutter speed will be. This longer exposure allows the shutter to remain open long enough to record the same amount of light but will also create movement within the shot.
Another major benefit of this 82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is the elimination of having to buy and carry around individual neutral density filters. With this one filter, you can rotate to the degree of ND you want – a real-time and money saver.
Simply mount the filter on your lens, set it to “Min” density then frame and focus. Care must be taken with focusing at heavier densities to make sure focus is accurate. However, if it isn’t, switch to manual focus and rotate to the desired degree of filtration.
