Bower FN58 Overview

The 58mm Variable Neutral Density Filter from Bower gives you the capability of shooting with high speed film or high ISO settings on your digital camera, even in direct sunlight. ND filters reduce the amount of light that reaches your film or your sensor, and this variable ND filter allows you to choose just how much light you want to block from 2 to 8 stops. To adjust the amount of light, simply turn the adjustable dial for a seamless adjustment.

With the variable ND filter on your lens, you can control both the exposure time and depth of field in your photos. Without an ND filter, most cameras do not have a shutter speed fast enough to allow you to shoot wide open in bright conditions. By adding an ND filter, you can blur your background and isolate your subject, even under direct sunlight. You can also shoot very long exposures which is useful for landscape and architecture photography. Exposing your shot for a long period can make people, clouds, cars, and other moving objects seemingly disappear from your images.

Works as described and I love the little Max and Min notches on the side of the filter to help me get exactly how much effect that I want.

Loss of Image Quality

These NDs work great as NDs and dont have much of a color tint which is great, but they really soften/blur the image and reduce contrast. If youre looking for sharp, crisp image quality, pay more for some nice quality glass. I wish I had in the first place and now I have to spend extra.

Must buy!

This is a spectacular must have to carry in your bag, especially for portrait photographers. Was able to keep my lighting set-up stable, as ambient sunlight changed on the model.

Works great!

Current setup: 5D, 85mm F/1.8 with a lens hood I primarily use this to give me a couple more stops to work with while taking natural light portraits and it works great for that. No appreciable/significant vignetting in the corners.

question

Am I right to assume that a 58mm lens cap would fit over this filter?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, technically a 58mm lens cap should fit. But filters like these can be wider. They essentially are made up of two polarizing filters sandwiched together. So they can be a bit wider because of that.

Can I stack another 58mm filter on top of this one?
Asked by: Anil
The Bower 58mm Variable Neutral Density Filter has a 62mm front threading. If you want to stack another filter in the front it would need to be a 62mm filter. Alternatively you can put the other 58mm filter in bottom and this one on top. Always be careful to avoid vignetting when stacking filters.

question

is this filter compatible with Pentax 58mm lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
I have used this filter with Canon lens. No problem. Also have mounted the filter in front of a HOYA uv filter. No problem. While I have not used it with any PENTAX lens, I would expect that there will be no problem since the mounting thread for 58mm is standard.
