The Hoya 72mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. They have no effect on color balance.

Multi-coated to minimize reflection at the filter surfaces which reduces flare and ghosting.

Neutral Density filters have four main uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed films, to record movement in subjects such as waterfalls, clouds, or cars
To decrease depth of field by allowing wider apertures to be used, which helps separate subjects from their background
To decrease the effective ISO of high speed film (above ISO 400) and allow it to be used outdoors in bright situations
To allow cine and video cameras (which have fixed shutter speeds) to film subjects such as snow, sand or other bright scenes which could cause overexposure

Neutral Density Factors

2x = ND.3 (exposure adjustment = 1 stop, reduces ISO 1/2)
4x = ND.6 (exposure adjustment = 2 stops, reduces ISO 1/4)
8x = ND.9 (exposure adjustment = 3 stops, reduces ISO 1/8)
As one of the premier filter manufacturers, Hoya filters continue to made from quality glass assuring the photographer clear, sharp and accurate images
Hoya filters consistently provide even color all the way through the filter; All surfaces are ground and polished to specific thickness and tolerances

        Comments about Hoya 72mm Neutral Density (NDX8) 0.9 Filter:

        I regularly buy Hoya filters because they are good value. This one works as described, and the quality of the glass is very good. My only complaint is that this does not thread onto my lens as easily or smoothly as Hoya's higher end filters.

          I use this filter, as most do, to allow slower shutter speeds in fairly bright light. This filter is typical of Hoya - high quality, no distortion, does what it's supposed to.

                    great for making that silky smooth movement of waters such as in waterfalls and rivers. 3 stops is fine for my style of shooting but will add 6 stops filter soon.

                                  The ND is primarily used to decrease the depth of field when taking portraits, but in general, anytime I want to open up the lens or use a slower shutter speed.

                                  I really like the fact that it is color neutral...it doesn't appear to affect color content at all.

                                          I used this ND filter for my school project using multiple lighting on a 5D with a 28-135mm lens. The images came out beautifully! It is good quality and easy to keep clean. There are filters that are better quality, but cost substantially more. It is a great value!

                                          • Use slower shutter speed

                                          I use this so I can shoot at bright daylight but at lower a wider F-Stop opening or slower shutter speed so I can sync with flash. Does its job.

                                          I use a Sekonic L358 Meter for metering. To get the correct ambient reading or flash meter reading with the filter attached on my lens, I set the L358 to compensate by -3.0 (press both ISO buttons and turn wheel to make adjustment). I initially just tried to do the calculations in my head, but it was slowing me down when having to do readings for ambient and flash.

                                          I gave it four Stars only because it is almost half the price of a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens. Generally speaking, I don't know why filters are so expensive.
