Polaroid 46mm Neutral Density Fader Filter

You Pay: $34.90
Product Highlights
  • 3x to 400x Variable ND Filter
  • Decrease Exposure by 1.3 to 8.6 Stops
  • Multicoated Glass Construction

The Polaroid 46mm Neutral Density Fader Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction of about 1.3 to 8.6 stops. The ND 3x to ND 400x 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 and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
3x to 400x neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction of 1.3 to 8.6 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

        I was surprised to see NO sharpness and contrast reduction. AF system performs accurate with my Panasonic GX7. I can recommend this filter for sunny day outdoor video shooting.

        Lens cap doesn't fit!

            Comments about Polaroid 46mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

            As a filter, this works fine. Cuts out light and doesn't effect image quality or color too much.
            However, this is the only filter I've seen that doesn't allow for a cap. So, I can't keep it on between shots, for fear of scratching it, which is unnecessarily time consuming.

            I used this filter for lumix lenses and it does what it is made for my only gripe is that I cannot use my lens cap other then that I really like this filter.
