The Heliopan 72mm Variable Gray ND Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1 to 6 stops. The 0.3 to 1.8 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. The degree of density is easily controlled by rotating the front filter ring, allowing you to previsualize the additional exposure length required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image.

This filter features a brass mounting ring that is painted matte black to help reduce reflections. High quality Schott glass provides optical clarity and greater contrast to help render scenes with greater fidelity and resolution. This filter does not have front threads for attaching other filters.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.

      Comments about Heliopan 72mm Variable Gray ND Filter:

      In terms of performance, it does the job pretty good. I love there is a manual stop that limits you between 1-10.

      But one downside is that there is no option for you to put the lens cap on.

      Comments about Heliopan 72mm Variable Gray ND Filter:

      Sharp, neutral, this filter is the best vari ND filter made. Only drawbacks are the lack of front threads and the strange affects with wide angle outside, which is an issue with all vari ND filters.

        Comments about Heliopan 72mm Variable Gray ND Filter:

        because it's variable, i can set the lens aperture and adjust the filter to set exposure. very convenient and useful. i used it on a 52mm dia lens with a step-up ring, also by heliopan. fits perfectly. and good quality. clean images even with the filter.

        One of the best variable ND's available

          Comments about Heliopan 72mm Variable Gray ND Filter:

          This is one of the best variable ND filters out there. Heliopan took care to calibrate the filter and limit the angle of the rotation (yet you still can remove the limit by removing a small screw) so you do not get weird color shifts. Once you white balance with the filter on (it differs slightly from where there is no filter)the white balance will stay valid throughout the adjustment range. There is no noticeable clarity loss as far as video image is concerned. Not sure about the stills as I use it for video only.
