Bower FN82 overview

  • 1Description

The 82mm 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.

    Bower FN82 reviews

    82mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Loses Sharpness when zoomed in I bought this filter because the reviews were good. However, if you plan on using it on a zoom lens it's not worth it. If you want sharpness on the longer side of the lens don't use it. I tested on a 24mm to 70mm zoom. My lens was sharp on the 70mm end without the filter but once you put on the filter the sharpness is lost. I thought I was out of focus at first but tested it with peaking on and when viewing it on the computer there is a complete lack of sharpness with the filter on. If you are just shooting landscapes and wider should be fine but not what I'm using it for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shades for my lens Great for mid day shooting when the sun is bright. For the landscape type shots I have been taking lately, I couldn't be happier. This gives me precise control in capturing motion in the waterfalls and other moving water scenes I have been shooting. The variable filter operates smoothly and stays in place and does not change on its own. The case it comes in is excellent as well, much nicer and more convenient than those I have purchased from more expensive brands. Keeps the filter protected, but quick and easy to open and close when time is an issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality - better than expected Easily the best value for money on the market - don't think about using last two stops on the filter as the crosses appear. Not a big deal for me.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great variable filter at great price I use this ND filter on my Canon 6DS to allow me to use a lower f-stop when shooting video outdoors. It works really, really well. The variable-ness of it is really usefuladjusting how much light is filtered on the fly is super critical for outdoor shots. The only reason I rated this a 4 instead of a 5 is because the outer ring is larger than 82mm. This is a pain when you want to put your lens cap onthe outer ring of the ND filter is larger than the 82mm lens cap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good performance / value Very useful, only issue is the depth of it like all of these type of things make putting on the lens hood difficult if not impossible. I have a few of these and use them periodically when things need to just happen fast and I don't have enough individual ND filters. We often run 3 camera shoots and I haven't had a chance to get individual filters for every lens. Matching multiple can e confusing is one issue, otherwise these are great in a pinch.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I probably got a bad copy. As it neared the darkest, two quarter circles of complete black appeared. I made an image outside for 3.5 seconds and outside those two semi-circles was properly exposed, but the circles make all images unusable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbs Up Would recommend to anyone who asked. used it for the first time last week, and loved it. Was partially cloudy day but everything was still blown out, this ND Filter worked great for adjusting around the amount of light.
