Product Highlights
  • 9-Stop Neutral Density Filter
  • 2.7 Solid Optical Density
  • Permits Increased Exposure Length
  • Three-Layer HMC Coating
  • Optical Glass, Aluminum Filter Ring

The Hoya 58mm NDx400 HMC Filter is a solid neutral density filter that enables a 9-stop increase in exposure length. The optical 2.7 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

This filter features a three-layer HMC multi-coating, which provides 98-99% light transmission and helps to reduce internal flare and reflections. It is constructed from high-quality optical glass for notable image clarity and is set in a durable aluminum filter ring.

2.7 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a slower shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a 9-stop reduction, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Three-layer multi coating helps to minimize internal reflections and ghosting and maintain an overall neutral color balance.

        • Long Exposure Photography

        Comments about Hoya 58mm NDx400 HMC Filter:

        I bought this about a year ago not knowing much about long exposure photography and I had seen this in an article I read on how to take better long exposure photos.
        It is very sturdy and I still use it every once in awhile when I am doing (~30 seconds) long exposure photography.
        It is really straight-forward on how to use: screw it on and take the picture. The only problems I have had with this filter: if you are going to stack a few of these for an even longer exposure they will cause a vignette; it's very easy to get finger prints on it (also very easy to fix).
        I would highly recommend this to my friends who are just starting out with long exposure photography.

        PROS:
        Cheap
        Strong/Durable
        Great to learn long exposure photography with
        Clear images produced

        CONS:
        Stacking causes vignette to occur
        Fingerprint Magnet

        ALSO: MAKE SURE YOUR LENS IS 58MM BEFORE YOU THINK ABOUT BUYING THIS...

            Comments about Hoya 58mm NDx400 HMC Filter:

            Went shooting the day after I received this lens. Found a nice spot on the South Fork of the Snoqualmie River near Twin Falls State Park (WA) and set up for the attached photo, and many others. Because it is a ND400, or ~8.6 stop drop, one needs a lot of light to get a shot. This was a 30s exposure, for example, in the afternoon sun. Optics are clear and the ND effect is consistent across the glass. Recommend.

                great filter, but the rim of the filter is a bit too thick and may cause vignetting in certain lenses at wider angles.

                      This one really slows the motion down for you--easily took the shutter speed to BULB setting. I'll need to learn a little about exposure through bulb, but definitely a worthy ND.

                        I purchased this filter to capture blurred motion shots, particularly of moving water. While my camera would take acceptable shots under very low light conditions, it was impossible to capture any images in full, or even partial sun.

                        This filter has performed flawlessly, and I now have no difficulty capturing some very beautiful images during even the brightest days.

                        The product is well made, and has met all of my expectations.

                        As an aside - the customer service at B&H was outstanding.
