Bower FN95 overview

  • 1Description

The 95mm 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 FN95 reviews

    95mm Variable Neutral Density Filter is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well and priced right Only four stars because if you are putting this on the Sony 28-135mm lens, the lens hood will no longer fit the lens. The Bower ND filter has a very large outside diameter which won't allow the lens hood to go on the lens. The threads are a little goofy too as it doesn't thread down onto the lens very far. Other than that, it works good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bang for your bucks If you understand how this filter works and use it properly you will get excellent results. At first I was wary because of some of the negative reviews along with the price, however both points I have proved wrong. First you don't have to spend hundreds to get a good filter, second some people have no business writing reviews. Yes the dreaded X effect it is easy to achieve especially at wide focal range but it is also rather easy to eliminate, If you have the flexibility. Note all these filters have this limitation since they are basically just two polarizing filters. I found no distortions or color problems out of the ordinary and have easily gotten all the results we buy these types of filter for. With this 95mm size using step-down rings I can use this on three of my lenses. I have noted some have mentioned not being able to use lens hoods, not sure how hoods would be used conveniently with a rotating filter to begin with. And the only time I use a lens cap is when I am done for the day. The filter feels solid and well made and the ring moves nice and smooth with no loose play, the filter also comes with a really rugged hard shell case and a lifetime warranty. I have a number of filters some Bower, Hoya and B+W that were way pricey but the 95mm B+W Variable ND is just way over priced IMHO So in the end glad I went with this it has proven I don't need to overpay to get good results

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very Good, But .... Optically, the filtration appears excellent; nice and even throughout the image area. However, the quality of the threading leaves quite a bit to be desired as it is difficult to attach to either a Tamron G2 or even a B+W polarizer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fine For what I do with it, it works fine. but beware these are not stackable, you screw it to the lens on one side but the outer side it not screwable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total junk By far the worst filter I ever screwed onto a lens, images come out all smeared and soft at any stop on the filter. I was hoping to use this on my 200-500 for airshows. What a major let down. Sending it back for a full refund.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but... Does a good job. Has a visible X band at 10 stop. Just stop it 8 and it disappears. Not sure if it is a defect or just a byproduct of having a variable density filter. Threads are nice.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Ready For Prime Time Got this to use on a Sigma 10-600 on a GH4, had to return it. It completely blurred/ruined the image. Couldn't even get focus with it on.
