Polaroid 72mm Neutral Density Fader Filter

You Pay: $45.99
Product Highlights
  • 3x to 400x Variable ND Filter
  • Decrease Exposure by 1.3 to 8.6 Stops
  • Multicoated Glass Construction

The Polaroid 72mm 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.
Filter does not affect coloration of the image and can be used with other filters.
Multicoated glass filter for optical clarity and color fidelity.

      Comments about Polaroid 72mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

      Just received this filter and used it for the first time this weekend. Worked exactly as expected. Could have spent hundreds more, and I'm sure that some pros will see a difference. But for the advanced amateur such as myself, it is perfect.

        Comments about Polaroid 72mm Neutral Density Fader Filter:

        This product made my 50mm 1.2 lens achieve the cinematic feel in broad daylight. I am super pleased with it. I purchased it specifically for my 50mm 1.2 and have no complaints.

        It was reasonably priced and I like the fader style. It gives me the NDs i need in one filter.

        I'd recommend the product to anyone.

          the build quality of the filter is great for the price. it's not some cheap plastic material it feels really solid. it also can get really dark unlike some other ND filters. definitely worth it if you're interested in getting one

            Useful in bright daylight to allow for broader range of shutter speeds, aperture, etc. At wide angle some vineigh effect may occur.

              I shot a commercial outdoors and this filter really came in handy to get the proper exposure while maintaining the desired depth of field. Very clean filter with no issues. Color was good.

                    Very strong vignetting with a Wide angle lens (tried it in a 24mm).
                    The note on description says that this can happen, but didn't expect it to be so bad!

                        I used it for a few waterfall shots with long exposure. resu;lts were nice. For the price you pay you can't expect more.
