The 77mm X4 Solid Neutral Density 3.0 Filter from Breakthrough Photography is a circular ND filter with a 1000x filter factor that provides a 10-stop exposure reduction. Its 3.0 density creates a darkening of the entire image, allowing you to photograph with a wider aperture or slower shutter speed than normally required. By slowing your exposure time or increasing your aperture, you are able to control depth of field and convey movement more easily. Neutral density filters do not affect the coloration of the image and are ideal for pairing with other filters.

To prevent internal ghosting and reflections, the glass features eight layers of anti-reflection coating. This Multi-Resistant Coating (MRC) also increases the durability of the filter and helps it to stay clean for longer than uncoated filters. The Nano coating provides an additional ninth layer over the front MRC, resulting in an improved beading effect when in contact with water for greater cleaning efficiency.

This X4 ND filter is constructed from Schott B270 glass for increased optical clarity as well as color fidelity and features a thin brass filter ring to minimize the potential for vignetting while enhancing durability and jamming prevention.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Quality! After much research reading comparisons of the 10-stop ND filters, I settled on the Breakthrough filter. I was not disappointed! The filter produces extremely clear images with no color cast, as was discussed in the reviews and comparisons. I have only had this filter a few weeks, and used it on one outing to our Botanical Gardens with my Nikon D7100. The shots were bracketed since I have some HDR software that I was also trying. I am a novice at using these filters, but was pleased with my first try. I am looking forward to buying some of their other filters as well. Excellent company. Excellent warranty!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get it. This is by far the most neutral of the status quo. I have tried Firecrest 16 stop, and Singh-Ray Variable ND, and B+W 10 stop, which is my primary filter, but the first time I tried Breakthrough's 10 stop, was when I realized that neutral in ND is actually an achievable concept. This is by far, and I really mean by far, the most neutral of all the filters I have tried so far, with no perceivable compromise on sharpness. I shoot long exposures almost exclusively, and so I know what I'm talking about. I haven't tried this with really long exposures of 7-10 minutes yet, but the 1-2 minutes results absolutely blew me away. I highly highly recommend it you will be doing yourself a huge favor if you give this a try as you are looking to invest in ND filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from NEUTRAL! I just tested this against my B+W 110 ND 3.0 and all I can say is WOW!The control no filter is on the left.I created a custom X-Rite Passport Color Calibration for the no filter file and applied it and its custom WB (from the light grey patch above the green patch) in Lightroom to the filtered shots. As you can see the middle frame is just about a match to the left, while the right frame is way off. They were all shot using a 100w incandescent bulb in a Smith Victor PL-8 housing and metered the surface within 1/10 - 2/10 stop with a Minolta Auto Meter IV F and the flat diffuser. Check my eBay listings soon for my B+W ND's, ha!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most color neutral I've used so far While there's no such thing as a completely color neutral ND, this company claimed (and guaranteed?) this one is the most color neutral. I was a bit skeptical as I've never heard of this company before, but I read many reviews online saying this was the best out there, so I ended up biting the bullet and bought the 3-stop, 6-stop and 10-stop densities. Optical quality - I don't see any loss in sharpness when zoomed in on my Canon 5Ds R files at 100%, very impressive. Coatings - as others have said, the coating quality is a quantum leap versus my other ND filters more expensive than this one. Build quality - you can feel the quality of these filters. Very thin but still has front threads, which is important to me as I stack sometimes. Will probably get their new X4 CPL when it's available on B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding filter I had purchased this from another vendor before B&H picked it up. I chose it because some very solid reviews had shown it to maintain color without the usual blue or red tint with most high-density filters. In testing it out I have found the color reproduction to be very good and the sharpness of the image to be excellent. It works very well to remove moving objects from landscapes; it is also neat to create ghosts in images. Needless to say a tripod is a must.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 10 stop ND filter..... Like most everybody I did lots of homework on this filter. I had recently purchased a Tiffen kit but needed a really good 10 stop filter. I did color comparisons and Breakthrough had the best and truest color reproduction of all the screw on filters I looked at. I wanted to stay with screw on filters for portability vs. the Lee Big Stopper. After a day and evening in the Arizona sun I knew I had the right filter. The shots were Awesome!! Color was spot on and the clouds were streaked wonderfully. I got a shot of a fountain and was surprised at the clarity of in focus surrounding area and the silky smooth fountain. I would highly recommend the Breakthrough ND filter to anyone. Don't waste your time with the cheapo filters as all you will get is ill colored images and wasted time and effort. GREAT PRODUCT!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful filter...except for the box I was reluctant to spend this much but the previous users liked it A LOT. Now that I have my own, I completely agree. 8 minute exposures (the longest I've tried so far)show no color cast & are sharp, corner to corner. My only complaint is the filter's plastic storage box. It is distorted horribly & doesn't want to close properly. A quality product like this should come in a box that instills confidence that the filter will be reliably protected.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth to buy this super filter This filter is very cool. I use to take 220seconds, f/4 and ISO400. The image is clear and not over exposure. The more important that there is no distortion on color and do not raise darkness on each corner of the image. I greatly recommend you to buy it!?
