SLR Magic SLR-82VND II overview

  • 1Description

The SLR Magic 82mm 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 82mm 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-82VND II reviews

    82mm Self-Locking Variable Neutral Density 0.4 to 1.8 Filter (1.3 to 6 Stops) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Minimal Color cast ... Prominent X-Effect This product claims to have no X-effect. However, this is completely incorrect. This is only usable upto 3.5-4stops before the X-effect kicks in and ruins the picture. Would recommend to get a fixed ND filter instead

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fell apart in Iceland Literally fell into pieces while I was in Iceland. Not even in-use! Just from the weather, I guess? Unclear. Poorly made apparently. It's been a miserable experience attempting to get a refund, have been on it for months now with the manufacturer. They told me to ship it back to B&H but never gave an RMA. Ugh. There was less color-cast than the Tiffen I now also reluctantly own. Le sigh.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from ND is great, but no polarization effect This filter is made with two pol filters which acts as a variable ND. There is an additional ring that allows you to adjust the angle which changes the strength of the polarization. However, the one that I got seems to have been installed incorrectly. As a POL filter, when you rotate it, it removes reflections. But this one did not, it just changed the warmth. This happens when the two filters are installed incorrectly (backward). So, Im getting a replacement and hopefully it works better!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built, well manufactured piece of equipment I ordered this to go with my Sigma 50-100mm 1.8f Art lens. The fit and finish on the filter is great. The control knob is bunch better than trying to turn the filter housing with your fingertips. It does a great job of knocking down ambient light allowing those longer exposures, or setting frame rate for video.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Life Easier I was unsure if I was going to like this filter but can say that it does exactly what I need it to. Being able to dial in the exact amount of ND is so much easier than switching filters. My only complaint is that it is hard to adjust with the clip on shade for the lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't shoot without it I got this oversized one, and step it down to fit my lens. I kinda wish I got a smaller one, but it still works. I cant say I have had or noticed any issues to speak of. I did my YouTube research, and it seems to test consistently to be the best ND filter you can buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality! Was amazed at the quality of the glass. No noticeable degradation in image quality. Slight change in color temperature but nothing extreme. Great product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for video work I did my research and I believe this is the best one you can get.� Just remember to get the biggest one you need and get step up rings for your other lens.
