Genustech 62mm ND (Neutral Density) Fader Filter

Product Highlights
  • Provides 2-8 Stops
  • Indexed on Filter Ring
  • Rotating Handle on Filter Ring

The 62mm ND Fader Filter from Genus is unique in the world of neutral density filters. Other companies make you buy individual ND filters to meet your needs (i.e. 1-stop, 2-stop, etc.). Genus provides one filter that generates 2-8 stops of neutral density depending on how it is rotated.

In addition, the filter is indexed so you know exactly how many stops of neutral density you are getting. It screws on like any other filter and with a mere twist of the convenient rotating handle on the filter ring, you dial in your filtration. No need to constantly change filters - as the light changes, just dial in another grade of filtration.

Neutral Density filters have several uses and offer 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.

Neutral Density Filters Have Four Main Uses

To enable slow shutter speeds to be used, especially with high speed ISOs, 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 situation
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

          This filter replaces several individual filters by being able to dial in the amount of density needed.

            Bought this for my GH2. Works well with a continous range of ND filtering from 0 to 8 stops. Much better than taking individual filters on and off. Seems well made, high quality, no optical distortion that I have observed.

            Must Have for DSLR Video

            By Captain

            from Toronto, ON

            Verified Reviewer

            Comments about Genustech 62mm ND (Neutral Density) Fader Filter:

            I bought the 62mm ND Fader Filter to shoot video with my Panasonic GH2 14-140mm lens. Genus's Fader works as advertised, allowing shooting with larger apertures under extremely bright conditions.

            With the Heliopan - #177 Step-Up Ring (46mm Lens Size to 62mm Filter Size) I also use the Fader with my Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 lens.

            The one drawback is that the filter causes a color shift when relying on the camera's white balance presets. To solve this, I now always do a manual white balance when shooting with the Fader.

            At the end of the day, it's an essential piece of equipment for shooting video outdoors in daylight conditions.

              I bought this ND filter for my sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens particularly to shoot video in sunny conditions and maintain a high aperture. The filter does its job with no problems. Also, make sure you check out step up rings if you are looking to use this filter on multiple lenses that have different thread sizes.

              Very good quality and performance. Let's me get better DOF in really bright light where my 14-140 lens would lose it at really high F-stops. Not cheap, but quality is what matters.

                Comments about Genustech 62mm ND (Neutral Density) Fader Filter:

                I bought this to use primarily for video on the Canon 7D, specifically for the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 so I could use the wider apertures for shallow DoF with brighter ambient light conditions/outdoors etc.

                I shot with it Friday and went back to buy the 77mm version for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 which I also use for video.

                These are very well built, seemingly more expensive than they actually are. If you're thinking about buying an individual higher quality ND filter(s), you're going to pay almost as much for that and maybe even more depending on the size.

                One thing to keep in mind if you shoot video with primes and will need to switch lenses often on location, etc., the larger front diameter (vs. the mount diameter) of the fader eliminates vignetting with the thickness of the fader, etc. but that also means your lens cap won't fit on it. So spend another $1 on a larger lens cap when you pick this up. I found the 62mm-mount Genus front diameter accepts a 72mm cap (Sigma) and the 77mm-mount Genus accepts and 82mm cap.

                  I use this primarly for video production on the Canon 7d DSLR. I couldn't imagine shooting without this anymore! It's sturdy, works great and is not expensive. Downside, the little knob that attaches to the filter to allow you to adjust the filter doesnt seem to fit in the filter hole.. I'm sure it's not like this on all..
