SLR Magic SLR-77VND II overview

  • 1Description

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.

    SLR Magic SLR-77VND II reviews

    77mm Self-Locking Variable Neutral Density 0.4 to 1.8 Filter (1.3 to 6 Stops) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only usable to about 4 stops It's a decent filter, but not without flaws: - There's an obvious color cast... warming with a bit of a green tint - There are only 4 stops of usable density, once you reach 4.5 stops (at about #9.5 mark on my copy) the usual X pattern starts to emerge and by roughly 5 stops it's obvious and becomes unusable, definitely NO 6 STOPS! That said... the cast is not too bad and easy to correct... I actually don't mind the warmer tones as I shoot with A7Riii which has cooler colors naturally. �Also, I saw 0 drop in sharpness up to 4 stops, had to triple check my tests as I was surprised to see that. �So, for the money this isn't too bad at all!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely well-built but not perfect. I've wasted a lot of money on cheaply-built NDs. This one definitely surpassed my expectations and is my favorite variable ND for this price point. It's in a similar price range as a lot of lesser models, yet the construction is great -- feels solid, well built, well thought out. Love the hard stops and the clear, precise scale. And I haven't noticed any IR pollution or wonky colors. Still, it's not perfect. I would have loved if the numbered scale gave us the actual ND measurements (0.4 through 1.8) rather than a simple 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Streamlines DSLRs and Mirrorless for video This ND filter makes me miss the filter wheel on a video camera much less. I really like the design, hard stops, a knob to grab a hold of, and a firm way to secure it to my lens. So far I haven't noticed much IR pollution either, and it doesn't seem to change the character of the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. My first experience with a variable ND. I'm using this on a Sigma 50-150 os f2.8 and a Sigma 18-35 f1.8 with step ring. I've only used it for video so far but it's been great in full sunlight allowing me to shoot 1/60 shutter speed and still get some shallow depth of field focus. I like the locking ring and hard stops to prevent the X associated with variable ND's. The little throw lever is a nice touch but might prevent the use of a sun shade on some setups.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ND I've owned thus-far Super high quality construction. No noticeable color shift. Great range of ND. Love the stops!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great variable ND filter...but... Loved this filter as it fit both my Zeiss 18mm and Sony 18-105 f4. The problem with it is the little lever that sticks out and allows you to adjust the exposure without getting your fat finger in the shot, is horribly weak. I took this on a 184 mile hike and that little lever got caught on everything; getting it in and out of a backpack, slinging the camera around your neck. Carry bags upstairs.... Its far too flimsy for active use and mine has now broken off, disappeared, and left a piece of itself inside the ring so that I can't replace it. All I can say is that if your are buying this with this feature in mind, don't get too attached to it. Mine took precisely 1 week to break!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ive tried Lightcraft and Geneus eclipse. This seems better Smooth rotation. only used it for a week. Good for video exposure control. Glass seems sharp

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I use this filter with my Veydra lens and it works wonders when I'm shooting outside. Never found any strange artifacts on my footage.
