Product Highlights
  • 0.3-3.0 Variable Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure Length by 1-10 Stops
  • Greater Control Over Exposure Settings
  • Optical Glass Construction

The Vivitar 77mm Variable NDX Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter providing a reduction in light by about 1 to 10 stops. The 0.3 to 3.0 (ND2-ND1000) 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. For easier, repeatable control over density settings, the front ring is also visually demarcated with dots that each represent one stop of neutral density.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
0.3 to 3.0 ND filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction in light by about 1 to 10 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.

      Comments about Vivitar 77mm Variable NDX Filter:

      Got this lens as an addition to my Hoya 9 stop. It attracted me the fact that it varies the density. What I don't like about this filter is that it doesn't tells you how many stops it is in each point of the ring

        I don't believe this filter comes close to the full 10 stop range it states but that's just an opinion. Other than that it's a great price

        Tried to purchase a more expensive version of this filter. Salesman talked me into this make. It was well worth the change. Works very well. Would recommend to anyone.

          This is a great addition to any photographer's bag.
          Definitely an awesome price and a good quality.
          The ring rotates with a good resistance, not too loose, and it fits well my camera lens.
          It comes with a handy pouch to protect the filter.
          I will use it for my long-time exposures and other creative photos.

                Best Uses

                • Increase exposure time

                Comments about Vivitar 77mm Variable NDX Filter:

                Works as advertized, but does affect sharpenss. Apperently the filter is not optically flat since the focus varies over the field. Not much of a problem if you stop down past F8. Not so good if you want to use a wide aperature to reduce the depth of field with a high resolution camera. It is possible that the problem is due to sample variation.

                There is also a small shift in color depending on how the filter is set. This is not much of a problem since it can be easily corrected. The filter also does reduce the contrast of the image that can be partially corrected.

                Since my primary use will be to increase the exposure time, I will normally be using small apertures. The price is right for someone like me who will not make frequent use of the filter. As a result I will probably keep the filter.

                I am recommending it with the proviso that you will be stopping your lens down when using the camera.
