Hoya 77mm Neutral Density (NDX4) 0.6 Filter

Product Highlights
  • Multi-Coated (HMC)
  • Glass

The Hoya 77mm Neutral Density (NDX4) 0.6 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 be 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

            Hoya makes very good filters. this filter is no exception, I cannot see any visible loss of quality from using it. I highly recommend it. I use this one on a Nikon 70-200 F/2.8 lens.

              I purchased this filter to help lower my aperture when panning action in bright daylight. I've taken approx 100 shots with it and haven't seen any issues with image quality.

              Comments about Hoya 77mm Neutral Density (NDX4) 0.6 Filter:

              IF you are filming in HDSLR and want to film lots of outdoor shots but want to be at an aperture of 2.8 or less, this is the filter to get. Why? When you use an aperture of 2.8 too much light is going into the camera thus destroying your image. Having this filter will help your camera film at aperture 2.8 without having your video footage look washed out.

                        I used this product on a recent trip to Maui and was able to successfully capture the landscape, sunrise/sunset, and waterfall shots I was hoping for with rich color and slower shutter speeds. Very easy filter to put on/take off and yields excellent results. A great product for the price.

                            When you're willing to get out the tripod and fiddle around with filters, a neutral density filter is well worth the trouble. I use it to achieve very slow shutter speeds when photographing scenes with water. This particular one is of excellent quality.

                                    Does what it's supposed to do. Used it in extremely bright outdoor light and was able to use lower f-stop for that desireable Bokeh.

                                        Easy to wipe clean and to mount onto the lens..... I am very pleased with the contrast quality as well.

                                            this filter is great for shooting in bright light. I shoot a lot of waterfalls and it helps balance the light between the white water and the dark rocks in the creek.
