The Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 1.8 Filter (4 x 5.65") 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

          Shooting outdoor camera was balanced for 5600k. When this filter was added a heavy red color shift was visible. Did a Auto White balance(outside, with filter) camera showed 2900k.

            Comments about Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 1.8 Filter (4 x 5.65"):

            ND filter works great and is truly neutral. I have noticed absolutely zero color shift/cast. The filter also seems solidly built, but is glass so probably wouldn't survive a fall.

            Comments about Schneider Neutral Density (ND) 1.8 Filter (4 x 5.65"):

            A "big stop" ND filter has a multitude of benefits and creative photographic uses:

            1) Shooting "wide open" for shallow depth of field in bright conditions where typically a smaller aperture would be required (and thus more depth of field than creatively desired)

            2) "Normal" lit landscapes transformed to long exposures with cloud movement blur or vehicle moving blur.

            The Schneider ND 1.8 is optically excellent. Appears to contribute no color shift, fits exceptionally well in a LEE Filter Holder, and comes in a great protective pouch.
