  • Reduce Exposure by 1.3 to 6 Stops
  • Darkens Entire Image
  • Greater Control Over Exposure Settings

The SLR Magic 77mm Self-Locking Variable Neutral Density 0.4 to 1.8 Filter is a solid variable neutral density filter that is designed to mount onto lenses with 77mm front filter threads and provides an exposure reduction of 1.3 to 6 stops. The 0.4 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, helping you to predetermine 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 visually demarcated with numbers representing different density values and includes a rotation lever to further enable fast and precise positioning of the front ring. Once the front ring is rotated into a position that corresponds to the desired amount of density, the filter's rear ring can then be turned to lock the front ring into place, helping to ensure consistent exposures.

This filter is constructed from optical glass for clarity and color fidelity. It is multi-coated to prevent internal ghosting as well as reflections and also features an 86mm mount which helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Variable neutral density filter allows you to dial in differing amounts of density scene to scene.
0.4 to 1.8 neutral density filter darkens the image, allowing you to photograph with a longer shutter speed or wider aperture than normally required.
Providing a reduction of 1.3 to 6 stops, this filter allows you to control depth of field and convey movement more easily.
Offers increased flexibility to use specific ISO settings or ISO films under bright ambient light.
Provides increased exposure flexibility while using cinema or video cameras within a designated film frame rate.
Multi-coated, optical glass for clarity and color fidelity as well as the prevention of internal ghosting and reflections.
Side lever allows the filter glass to be easily rotated.
Integrated exposure locking ring prevents accidental rotation of filter glass and changes to corresponding density values.
86mm front mount helps to reduce the likelihood of vignetting with wide-angle lenses.
Plastic filter case for storage and transport.

Is the 86mm (outer) side of this ND filter ...

Is the 86mm (outer) side of this ND filter threaded? Has anyone screwed anything into it successfully? I'm considering an 86mm lens hood.
Asked by: Dave
Yes, the outer side of this ND is threaded and I've attached filters to it before. I assume a lens hood should attach properly but I've never tried it myself.

question

Hello. On every review on YouTube, people say that you can also adjust the polarisation effect. Why are people saying here you cant ? Thanks.
Asked by: Matthieu D.
There is a very slight, almost imperceptible, polarizing effect at the minimum density setting. At the maximum density setting there is no discernible polarizing effect.

question

How is the glare? Should I buy a 86mm lens hood for this ND filter?
Asked by: Bobby
I haven't had any problem with glare. I didn't see any color shift. I wasted money buying a circular polarizer because the ND filter will do the same thing.

question

2 questions. 1: lter also be used as a CPL as you can adjust the angle of the filtration. 2: Does this filter have threads on the front of the filter? Answers appreciated.
Asked by: Rick
While both neutral density and circular polarizer filters use polarizing foils, the main purpose of this variable ND filter is to reduce the exposure overall, rather than reducing reflections, reducing glare and saturating colors as a circular polarizer would. As for the threads in front, those would measure 86mm.

question

why is there no mention of the polarizer in the item description?
Asked by: Rick
From my experience with this filter it does cut down on reflections some, but not as much as an actual polarizer filter, nor does it enhance colors like a polarizer filter does.

question

The back threads are 77mm and the front threads are 86mm. It's my understanding that this is to prevent vignetting. If I use a step down ring to get the front threads back to 77mm and add another filter, will that cause vignetting?
Asked by: Zak
Not at all, I use the on my 12/60 Leica lens for GH5.

question

Does this Mk II version allow for a lens cap on the filter? Does it have standard front threads?
Asked by: Scott C.
I just used this for the first time yesterday on waterfalls. I love it!! It comes with its own lens cap included.
