Heliopan 46mm Variable Gray ND Filter
Key Features
  • 0.3-1.8 Variable Neutral Density Filter
  • Increase Exposure by 1 to 6 Stops
  • Brass Ring Construction
  • High Quality Schott Glass
The Heliopan 46mm 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.

question

What's the actual filter weight (not package shipping weight) in grams. Looking for options for drone lens...?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sorry, we do not have the actual weight on record and we cannot weigh it. I would subtract a few ounces to get at the weight you need to know.

question

What's the diameter of the lens cap to buy for the Heliopan 46mm variable ND filter? Trying not to remove the filter each time the camera is kept in the bag, thus a lens cap would be useful.
Asked by: Anderson W.
The filter can only be used with a push on lens cap. There are none that are specific for that filter. This one is very close but can at times slip off.

question

Does this filter have hard stops? Will it be OK for video use?
Asked by: Dino
No. Generally variable ND filters have marks but not click stops. The ND value will vary based on the position of the sun to the filter surface.
