The 82mm 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.

    82mm X4 Solid Neutral Density 3.0 Filter (10 Stop) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Filter. Beautiful Design. I own a B+W 3.0 ND filter and I got fed up with the magenta color cast, which I find to be very hard to remove in post. So I ordered this Breakthrough ND filter to replace it. This is a great filter for increasing exposure time, introducing motion blur, and removing people from landscapes. I use it for daytime time-lapse movies, and other general purpose long-exposure landscape photos. I've used it at 16mm+ on my 6D with no vignetting, and NO COLOR CAST. The knurled outside ring makes it much easier to remove than other standard designs. Given that the Breakthrough Photography product is the same price as the 82mm B+W, but with superior optics, build, and warranty, it's a no-brainer buy. I'll be looking to Breakthrough for my future filter needs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ND10 for the price Excellent evenness and rendition of detail combined with low profile and easy to use knurled ring make this a winner. Like all ND 10's there is a colour cast but it is very minor and towards blue so images are easy to appraise without white balance correction. The level of blue cast to my eyes appeared much the same as you would typically see in many point and click cameras. I tried hard to induce internal reflections between this filter and the lense by removing the lens hood and angling towards an afternoon sun but was unable to produce more than what the lens did by itself. You might find some on an even single colour background but real world shots don't show. Low profile perfect for the Canon 16-35Mk2, would definitely recommend for others as well. Product comes in very sturdy cardboard package and fairly solid non brittle plastic holder so it should survive all but the worst transport.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive ND Filter Wow! This is even better that advertised !! I love the build quality and my first few shots were so impressive that I'm certain I will return for another product before this company realizes how good they are and blow up the prices :-) Excellent color retention, great quality all around. Two thumbs up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Great ND filter. I use the 10 stop mainly for long exposure photography. I have used well known competing filters for many years in the past and the breakthrough outperforms them in sharpness and colorcast. Build quality is also top notch. I would have no reservations in recommending this filter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Customer Support I had an issue with the filter that was shipped from B+H and contacted Breakthrough Technologies support. They got back to me right away and resolved my issue immediately. Impressive Filter at a great price and Fantastic support. What my could a customer want?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Appears to live up to the manufacture's claims I have both the ND and UV filters from Breakthrough Photography. I've had them for a few weeks and so far they have lived up to the manufacture's claims. What is really nice is their thin construction, especially on wide angle lenses. You may find that you can stack their ND on top of their UV with no clear corners. Breakthrough also makes circular polarizers but B&H is apparently not carrying them at this time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product No colour cast. Only slightly cooler in colour temperature but looks natural. Exactly 10 stop decrease as stated. Nice packaging too. Light weight easy to carry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Step Above Solidly built. The side indentations are helpful in screwing it on and off. I bought this due to reports of less color cast. This seems to be holding true. So far I am very impressed. So, I was looking for something a step up from the B+W filters I was using, and, as a pleasant surprise, I believe the X3 is just that. Only grip is minor and that the case is still good, but slightly lower quality than B+W.
