The Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Filter (4 x 4") has several uses and offers the possibility to achieve otherwise unachievable results. They enable the shooter to adjust exposure without affecting color balance. ND filters appear gray and reduce the amount of light reaching the film. 

Determining which neutral density filter yields ideal results for any given lighting situation takes knowledge, experience and a collection of such filters. Speaking generally, the 2-stop value (ND 0.6) effectively compensates average situations.

Note! Neutral Density Filters are available in grades 1,2,3 and 4 stops to suit individual needs

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
High-Quality Construction
Schneider filters feature crystal clear, water-white optical glass, protected against edge-chipping and delamination by Schneider's unique Edge Seal, which also significantly reduces edge reflections and flare

Schneider Quality Control

Schneider filters are ground and polished to a precise flatness and plane parallelism
Because all Schneider filters are designed and manufactured with the highest possible degree of consistency, you can swap like filters mid-shoot with no discernible variation in color or effect

            Comments about Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Filter (4 x 4"):

            I bought this to use with my 5D Mark III. Originally I was looking at the IRND filters only to realize the IR wasn't necessary with the 5D3.

            The money saved without the IR was great, and I haven't noticed any issues with coloring. I use this in conjunction with a linear polarizer and have great results.

                This, like all the Schneider filters I bought, shifted the colors so significantly to red/pink that I sent it back.

                  The Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 0.6 Filter is perfect for use on the Sony NEX-FS100 as the camera doesn't have a built in ND wheel.
